  • Describe your road trips or role-play.
  • Talk about your cars; you can even give them or story or describe what they're based off of.
  • Share stories and pictures of cruises with friends.
  • Explain the layout or theme of your garage and/or why.
  • Share strange or interesting vehicle sightings around town.
  • Post reviews of cars, boats, helicopters and planes; journalism is encouraged!

Examples:

  • "I took my Rapid GT Classic up to Paleto today and decided to stop by Up-N-Atom..."
  • "I bought this Carbonizzare a year ago and based it off..."
  • "Me and X took our Pegassis out for a car meet and cruise today..."
  • "The top floor is for supers and exotics..."
  • "Saw this monstrosity today on dollar rims..."

I love my Stromberg because it actually looks classy and is a James Bond kinda car and can be useful for more than cruising.

 

One time I was just cruising in the car, enjoying the beauty of it and riding around. This was in a public free roam, quite soon an armored Kuruma whizzed by and hit me with a sticky bomb. I don't blow up but I do spin out. Once I regain traction I followed them and used my machine guns to blow up the car while dodging more explosives.

 

His friend soon joined in the chase and picked him up in a helicopter, With missiles raining down on me I raced to the pier and activated submarine mode. As soon as those guys made the mistake of flying low enough I torpedoe'd them out of the sky, cruised towards the shore, changed back into a car and drove off.

:lol: That made me giggle. Very stealthy.

 

---

 

Yesterday, I had some fun doing a photo-shoot with my new-to-me GP1. It's the second photo-shoot I've ever done using Rockstar Editor, the screen-capping feature, and the same self-made preset I use to edit real-life pictures. I'm definitely no pro though.

 

ze9vYBd.jpg

 

About the car, I'm kind of obsessed with it at the moment (obviously). I based my GP1 off of McLaren F1 Chassis #014. Originally, Chassis #014 was yellow and came fitted with no kit. Some time during the F1's production period, McLaren started fitting non-LM F1s with kits, known as HDK ("High Downforce Kit", sometimes regarded as HDF). In rarer cases tunes and even actual LM engines were installed. There are 8 F1 HDKs in total. There were 9, however 1 was restored to its original configuration. 2 Have actual LM engines while the rest just have kits, not a bad thing. Typically, easy ways to tell an HDK apart from a real LM (as if you'll ever see them!) are the lack of sideskirts, a smaller hood intake, and really it's just not gonna be orange! Yellow Chassis #014 was repainted white and simply given the HDK-treatment and ever since it has been the highlight of special western car events, such as Monterey Car Week:

 

 

 

I love the original F1, I love the LM and I love the GT, but I really have a thing for HDK. Don't ask me why. Maybe it's just because of how many times I saw it on Instagram. My GP1 has been fitted with all of the mods necessary to replicate Chassis #014 as best as possible. However, I could not resist the white interior and the WOKING vanity plate, paying homage to the McLaren Technology Centre in Woking, Surrey, England.

I genuinely enjoy this car. I have the strange hobby of role-playing and often cruise around realistically. I mean, I do speed and enjoy the car, but I love cruising like one would out on the real road. Speeding around randomly causing chaos just isn't for me. This car is at home on a track, and you can tell, however it's not a bad car to take to the shops. I was originally just going to stop by Ponsonby's for some clothes. However, I couldn't help noticing how photogenic the lighting situation and location was. The bustling streets of Morningwood kind of resemble Carmel-by-the-Sea, California (where part of Monterey Car Week takes place). So, I thought well f*ck it. Why not do a photo-shoot. No regrets.

I have not driven this car that much, it's still new. But it's been a pleasure since specc'ing it out. I did some fast past canyon driving in it yesterday and it coped amazingly, but I'm going to need to drive it more. This car definitely gives me Need for Speed Hot Pursuit 2 vibes. The nostalgia is intoxicating, somehow more so than in some racing games.

 

Moments like this make me truly appreciate GTA.

I was driving my Mamba in a public lobby then I find this guy joyriding in his Nighshade, so I join him. We were just zipping around, racing each other, doing donuts, and just having simple fun.

I sometimes go road tripping in my favorite RV, the 1979 Zirconium Journey, and have done so with quite a few friends and other players in Online from time to time. One such memorable time was when a friend and I had just come off of grinding heists and jobs, and I break off to go take a relaxing cruise around Southern San Andreas. For once, though, my friend tags along, and joins me for my cruise. We chat about our lives both in and outside of GTA, switching loosely from role-play to real life and back, all the while adventuring through Chiliad Mountain State Wilderness, Raton Canyon, and the San Chianski Mountains in this hulking box. Eventually, as soft rain begins to pour down during a spur into Cape Catfish, I notice my friend has fallen asleep in the back of the Journey, so I park up along a cliff overlooking the Mount Gordo lighthouse and wait for the idle timer to send him on his way, enjoying the soft sound of droplets on the roof and the slow crash of waves on the coast.

 

A really chilled out evening after the hideous grind that was the original heists with randoms, and something I really am happy to have that I wouldn't have been able to experience without GTA Online.

I believe the Lampadati Pigalle is one of these car that are as stylish as they are fun to drive. This is clearly one of the best designs i have ever seen in GTA, i can even add this is better than its real-life counterparts. The front of a Citroen SM, the shape of a Maserati Merak and the back of a Ghibli. One of the most effective italo-french partnership ever. No need of a DS, give me its sport variant and add an italian engine and it will become my daily driver ! Each time i log on, i drive around the Terminal and drift around the richest mansions of north LS. And i stop, and i contemplate, and i feel so proud of having one. I did not need any big customization since i went for a stock SM look, just bought some El Jefe rims, add a kustom crew color based on a mix of Verde Ghibli spider and Vert argenté and add the personal plate for a VCS nod.

Second picture is based on a commercial i've seen for a bison brown SM.

In preparation for my future PTS Signal Green Pfisters (both the Neon and the Comet SR), I took it upon myself to buy a good old pre-facelift Comet.

 

uVdSXNe.jpg

 

 

I love this thing, and it will hold me over until the sexy Neon and eventually the better Comet SR. I have two garage spaces saved in between this and my teal blue Cyclone for my future green additions. I was impatient to see how PTS Signal Green would look on my Pfisters so I wanted to test my spec out on the Comet and no regrets. I won't sell this one either. My Neon will likely sit on alloy Cheetah RRs while the Comet SR will sit on black ones, both in the same color.

 

sUqRTO8.jpg

 

Driving the original Comet, I don't know why I didn't buy one earlier. It feels and sounds like a turbo model, while the SR sounds like it's naturally aspirated. I can't wait to see how much better the Comet SR corners, seeing that it's more track-focused.

Signature Cars

 

 

I had trouble settling on an aesthetic for my first character. I got a Sabre Turbo in matte black, and dressed him in jeans and a leather jacket, for the Houligan look. It was alright for a while, but it didn't quite suit him.

 

I later got a Manana, in some kind of metallic brown with a light matte brown (could it have been Desert Tan?) roof, and dressed in a vintage suit jacket with brown pants, a white shirt, and some kind of wide necktie, for the Restaurant Equipment Salesman look. I wasn't really feeling it, so it wasn't long before I switched back.

 

Then I got a Chino.

 

Oh, yes.

 

Metallic Anthracite Black with a vinyl roof and chrome Classic Rod wheels (which I thought looked closest to the deeply-dished hubcaps I seemed to remember from some mid-sixties Lincolns). No window tint, no whitewalls.

 

I dressed my character in an open Sharp Black High Life suit with a charcoal shirt and a skinny white tie. The Rat Pack look.

 

I've kept this for a long time (and also made a Covered version which adds a grey trenchcoat and fedora with black gloves, 'cause sometimes you need to be by the docks on a rainy night), and I think it's a keeper.

 

It was the Vapid Chino that inspired this look, but I've got to say it seems appropriate with my red Lampadati Casco as well, and this look even inspired me to get an Albany Alpha (black with chrome Lead Sled rims), a car which, for me, embodies the modern interpretation of the classy (yet somehow menacing) 'Iron Fist In a Velvet Glove' image the Chino must have exuded in the sixties: Powerful, confident (arrogant?), suave, and dangerous, like Connery's Thunderball-era James Bond on wheels.

 

 

 

The clothes may make the man, but the car makes the clothes.

 

 

 

As for the Chino, it now sports a Brushed Black Steel paintjob (from the Metals selection), but remains otherwise unchanged.

 

In the absence of a jazz station, I set the radio to Worldwide FM and slowly cruise the streets at night, looking like trouble, but feeling alright.

Got into a few dogfights yesterday, they all went about as I expected them to.

 

First one, I saw some dude killing people in a Jet, so I figured "what the hell, I'll probably lose this" and called in my jetpack. I could see it's agility was unexpected and I dodged a few missiles by coming to a sudden dead stop as they flew past me. Ultimately the jet pilot won, as expected. I'm not very good with the Thruster.

 

Second one I was prowling in my Starling, when I saw two folks causing some unrest in a pair of Deluxos. Never fought even one before, so I give it a go. Those things are f*cking tiny! Half the time I kept losing my target, what with having to evade the missile spam. One of them managed to tag me with a missile in that I basically flew head on into it, so I ended up fleeing back to the hangar. They tried to persue me for about two blocks before tbey realized there was no chance they were going to catch me in their clown car. Called it a draw, would fight again.

 

Last one was quite fun, used my Starling again, battled for about five minutes with a fairly experienced buzzard pilot. He couldn't hit me with his missles though. I was literally doing loop the loops around him at one point. I eventually shot him down and texted him "good fight" to which he responded "Yt" which I took to mean "You too."

Took my Rapid GT Classic for a spin. I have it in a spot-on Aston Martin Almond Green with beige interior. First of all, what a wonderful car to drive. I admit that I don't drive classics as much as newer cars, but this Rapid GT Classic is something I could use everyday. Unfortunately, it made me give in and buy a Rapid GT Roadster to go along side it in the same exact color, on alloy Mercie wheels! I don't regret it but that definitely wasn't in much budget. Oh well. The Rapid GT Roadster is a great car, just wish it had a proper Aston interior.

Not a real story but some kind of short role play I made. Enjoy.

 

The Comet represents a brand more than any other car. As one of the most reliable sport cars around thanks to the impeccable german engineering it is loved by a big community.

Looking for one myself, I found an used one in good conditions for an acceptable price.

With the ride mods you can improve the already timeless design. So, not wasted any time and took it to the shop to give it a personal note, trying to keep the original and clean look.

What would even the most beautiful car look like without the appropriate paint finish? Starting with the body work most important tasks include sanding, stopper and filler application as well as priming.

h2tjigazxmj.png

Then we can start painting. To give it a more aggressive look I decided to give it dark grey metallic paint job. 6bfny796arp.png

The next stage was interior work. Keeping most parts original I went to add a roll cage to protect its occupants from being injured in case of a roll-over.

Moving to the engine to maximize the performance. Adding a larger capacity turbo cost a small fortune, but without a doubt is one of the best ways to get significant power gain. To get the power to the wheels I replaced the original gear box by a performance gearbox.

To give it a clean finish the suspension was modified improving the handling. The 40mm lower suspension matches perfectly with the new modern chromed spoke wheels giving it a sporty aggressive look and at the same time keeping a clean and original look.

After one week in the workshop we are ready to take the baby out for a ride.

No pictures for this little story,but I remember back in 2015 or 2016,I decided to go on a road trip from Route 68 to Paleto Bay on a Daemon,and played Bon Jovi's Wanted Dead Or Alive on Youtube while playing the game.The song ended just as I arrived in Paleto Bay on my bike and the sun was setting in game,and it felt epic,like a modern version of a wild west outlaw on the run riding into a small town.

I received a call early Monday morning from Luxury Autos, Rockford Hills to inform me that my new addition to the collection was en-route to Paleto Bay. After frantically calling my personal assistant to cancel my meetings and clear my week, I was on the runway ready to greet my latest purchase with open arms. Upon arrival she was already on the ground awaiting my signature.

After commissioning Luxury Autos to find me this car, months of infuriating phone calls and countless dollars, she was finally here. Although I may have to find myself another garage in Paleto Bay in the near future! As I emerged from the garage hours later, night was falling and the air was cool. Perfect conditions to see what she could do. After navigating traffic I found myself turning off the highway and onto the beautiful winding roads of Grapeseed, Sandy Shores and the encapsulating Grand Senora Desert. With engrossing country side, fresh country air blowing through the cabin I was transfixed and all I could focus on was the magnificent roar of that glorious, famous Grotti V12.

After a wonderful first drive I cannot stress enough the importance of continuing to appreciate and maintain these beautiful old machines. Until next time.

Man, i continue to love this stupid game.

 

I could go on for some time about the VIP work vehicles, and the insane amounts of cash i've been racking up running Fortified, and Plowed, and Velocity, for me and my associates, and how much i love the Khengali tank for using the Most Wanted challenge to grief the griefers with my pals in the LSPD all over the place just itching to do my dirty work, but maybe another time.

 

Last night, while it was happening, i knew i would have to post this story here. I was in a very unfriendly session and a handful of tryhards were attempting to molest my organization (me and three bodyguards level 175+) and getting real close but just failing to stop us from completing the jobs and getting our money. Wrapped up Fortified in the downtown area, counted my $35k and teleported back to my facility, filled the snacks and jumped in a Pegasus buzzard, called in the Akula and grabbed it, then headed over to my nearby yacht and launched Piracy.

 

The rest of my guys were all still down in LS fighting the good fight, but a pair of noobs spent a good seven minutes failing to realize that i was going off the radar (or whaever they were thinking--dunno) as they would repeatedly try to take a chopper or a seashark and get out to my boat. I was almost too busy to take a bongrip, i was having so much fun wrecking them. Almost. 8)

 

THE AKULA IS THE GREATEST VEHICLE IN THE GAME, BY THE WAY.

 

Anyways, by the time there were about two minutes left, one of my bodyguards had made it up there, and one of the tryhards followed him in a Hydra, and proceeded to bombard all of us (me, my bodyguard, the two noobs, and i think maybe one other opponent showed up, and i had to EWO to get onto the boat because i couldn't keep all three of them from reaching it from the air) to no end with explosive cannon fire until, yes, i was counting my $30k from that job, too.

 

So, really, here's the best part. The job ends, the invaders respawn back on shore, and the Hydra flys off. I jump on one of the seasharks and my bodyguard joins me, and i start Point to Point down the coast a little way off, near my bunker. I always launch that one, just outside the red circles, just to give one of my boys an extra $10k if i'm waiting for a timer on another VIP job. (That's why i keep getting rid of your waypoints, btw.)

 

You can imagine the look on the tryhard's face as he's heading away in his Hydra and sees two stupid boat icons appear near the yacht. I mean, *of course* he comes back to strafe us, right? Right. Well, i'm here to tell you this was about the most fun four minutes i've ever had playing this game. It was raining, dusk, waves were choppy, lightning flashing, and me and my bodyguard were swerving and dodging and juking missiles on our seasharks for ages, while three dudes on the shore fired Homing missiles at the plane. He kept getting lower and lower until i was actually hitting him with fire from my AP pistol as i just repeatedly went under him over and over again and kept him spinning in circles, and eventually somebody got him with one of those missiles. To be honest, it doesn't seem nearly as freaking cool as it actually was, summed up in this little paragraph. Guess you sorta had to be there. It was rad.

 

I wish i'd had the presence of mind to record some of it, but i didn't.

 

p.s. if you see me in session on xbox1 and you're not accepting my invites to be an associate, then i guess you just don't like free money. cheers.

I was driving in the city one day...

 

This butt hole in a jet went off the radar and blew my car up, killed me in the process.

 

I spawned back, went directly into passive mode and I called Morris

 

They brought me my car back.

 

The butt hole in the jet paid for my insurance.

 

​I called my car back and went on about my business.

Had a weird phantom stock Vagner in my vehicle list when doing heists. It wasn't in any of my garages and only selectable from the vehicle list when starting a heist.

 

Anyway I used it in a heist setup and then sold it. I wonder how it got stuck in limbo

One of the greatest things I did was an air battle; before rockstar implemented Homing missiles.

 

So I was screwing around with a friend, I was flying an annihilator and he was trying to knock me out the sky in a Luxor. Each time he got close I gave a burst of chain guns to push him back. After taking a fair amount of engine damage, he flew into the clouds. I began to give chase, with the usual "you can run but you can't hide" speech included.

 

Then I hear a shout of suprise as a random guy in a lazer decides that this damaged Luxor shouldn't be flying today. I decided to give vengeance.The Annihilator may be slow and not as manoeuvrable as the buzzard; but with quad mounted chain guns more powerful than te buzzard, it packs a punch.

 

After strafing around every lock on missile he shot I just kept spraying the annihilator guns. Amazingly, the jet pilot flew straight at me trying to go for a close range rocket takedown, instead of ripping me apart with the explosive cannon. Bearing in mind I'm still spraying machine guns here, I somehow manage to rip those shots straight through the cockpit and bag the kill I wanted.

 

After flying to LS airport to pick my friend up after he was blown out the sky, I was told that the same guy was coming after me in a savage.

 

So, not backing down from a fight, I took the annihilator straight at him. As we all know; the pre-patch savage wasn't as armoured, but was very deadly with its rapid fire rockets and explosive cannon. As this guy was using the same "rockets kill all" approach, I just used the same tactic of strafe and spray. After enough avoiding of lock on savage rockets, I eventually took the rear rotor of the savage out. Instead of bagging the easy kill, the guy jumped out and tried to parachute away.

 

Until my buddy sniped his parachute and I sky splattered him with the annihilator. He left the lobby after this.

 

Back in the days of old GTA online when the threat of tryhards were low and the killing machines of rockstar's mind were minimal

So those weaponized vehicles, tbh i really like them but i've never used it against other players since i don't like that PvP bullsh*t, usually i use those weaponized vehicles to grind or in contact missions or maybe doing some acrobat/stunts/cop chase in FR in passive mode :p

it's really fun especially with the oppressor the police just overwhelmed by the agility of the oppressor

 

here some of the pics

and that's about it i also use the stromberg for the sea exploration and that amphibious ATV just to have some fun on the waves :D

that's why i really like these weaponized stuffs, because i'm not using it for griefing/destorying cargo/product/shipment hell no, i'm using it as a toys ( to have some fun)/money maker, shake your money maker baby hahaha :D

Kicked some more ass in the Starling tonight. So I ended up in a public lobby with the voice chat set to public; I was gonna help my buddy but he bailed shortly after I got there. So here I am and I says, "well i wanted to fly" so I hop in my best dogfighter and take to the skies. Right away I see a couple of people chilling on a roof downtown in a Deluxo. Not anymore! So now I'm down 20k I'm locked in, let's do this: I see some fella on foot minding his own business on the east side, " oops I got a lock! die motherf*cker" Business as usual. I hear some people on the mic complaining about some dude griefing them in a jet. A NEW CHALLENGER HAS ARRIVED. I fly over there to shut that sh*t down, and it gets hectic right quick! So right as I'm coming up on the jet, I suddenly have to dodge an attack chopper that came up out of f*cking nowhere. I"m not sure, it might have been an Akula, since it seemed to come from nowhere, and wasn't there before I flew over. Either way, now I've got this guy to deal with too, and suddenly some guy in a Deluxo wants to get in on the fun also. There was like six people in that area and explosions and all sorts of chaos right there for a good minute or two. So what it looked like happened as I was flying around taking potshots was the jet was distracted trying to kill me, and was killed by the attack chopper which also managed to destroy the Deluxo. I managed to outmaneuver the chopper, get behind it, and blow it out of the sky. The only one who flew away was me.

At some point during the fight I must've gotten hit by a rocket, as the top of my plane was charred so I landed at the hangar and took it back out again.This time I fought a guy in a Lazer. He kept shouting "Where did you go!?" I guess he was having a hard time keeping track of me. Guy never used his cannon though. Really it was me just doing silly stunts with his missiles until I ended up behind him. Fired a volley of about six missiles at him and he dodged them all. I smiled, as I've never had the opportunity to kill anyone using the Starling's pea shooter before, so this was going to be fun. It seems that the Starling can overtake a Lazer without too much trouble, I only shot him up a few times though, he wasn't bad at all, did a loop around me as I was coming in. After a few minutes of jousting his Lazer began to billow smoke, and he switched his tactics to fleeing. Although I gave chase, some other random person shot him down and stole my kill. I texted the jet pilot "Good fight" to which he unsatisfyingly replied "ok". Annoyed with the fight, but content with the experience overall, I turned the game off and came here to tell this story.
