Introduction|
------------|
This guide is all about the cars in Grand Theft Auto IV. It will tell you
where you can find the car, what it looks like, how rare it is, how fast I
think it is, and go on. I will try to make this guide as spoiler-free as
possible, but if you can only get a car in a certain mission, for example, 
I will put a warning. If you can't find a certain car, just email me and 
create a clear title for it.

And a handy tip: If you are looking for a car, and can't find it (there are
quite a lot cars in GTA IV) just press Ctrl + F. This will bring up a console
in which you type the name of the car. This will (hopefully) redirect you
to the part in this guide that tells you all the things about that car. The 
first search result will be the checklist. If it ain't the checklist, you are
either past the checklist, or the guide doesn't have that car (yet).

Note that this is NOT a guide about bulletproof cars. This is just about the 
stats, where to find them, and what they look like. The checklist can be used
to check all the cars you have found. So if you have gotten a 100% but still
want to play, then try to find all the cars on the checklist!

And to make sure you don't think it's copying and pasting, I hereby declare 
that I type EVERYTHING in this guide by myself. If not typed by myself, I 
will put a note, and credit. All cars will be checked personally or by a 
close contact to make sure there isn't false information.

LAST IMPORTANT NOTE: I don't need any emails containing cars which are the 
real world counterparts of cars in the game, like the Patriot being a hummer.
This may not be right and it will most likely be ignored. Also, please don't
send me corrections on real world counterparts of cars, like I get alot of 
emails for the Futo being a 1985 Corolla, instead of the Jetta. You can 
hardly tell the difference! I appreciate every single help, but don't send
me unnecessary things to get a credit.

But things like missed cars, completely wrong information, and ideas for the 
FAQ are welcome ofcourse! 

Have fun reading!

How to use|

The car categories:
-Ordinary Cars:
 These are cars without gadgets, you can spray them, and they have a boring 
 paintjob.
-Special Cars:
 These are cars with a special paintjob, these most of the time have special
 functions.
-Emergency Cars:
 Call 911 and you will see what I mean.
-Trucks:
 The roadkings with their loud horns.

The Cars are sorted in alphabetical order.

Then we have the statistics:
-Type: This gives the size of the car. (Sedan, Coupe, Convertible, SUV, 
 pick-up, van, hatchback)
-Speed: I give the speed of the car, by the way I think how fast it is. (Very
 slow, slow, average, fast, very fast)
-Weight: How much does it weigh (Light, average, heavy, very heavy)
-Rarity: How hard it is to find, with this I mean both finding it driving
 around, and finding it parked up somewhere. (Very common, common, rare, very
 rare)
-Picture: If you can't find out what this means by yourself...just select the
 link then paste it into your webbrowser.
-Info: I explain a couple of things about this car. What it looks like, what
 it can be used for, and all that kind of stuff.
-Where to find: I tell you in what missions you can find it, and where it has
 a static spawning point.

FAQ|-------------------------------------------------------------------------
---|-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Q: I think your information on  is wrong, what should I do?
A: Send me the proper information via e-mail. If that information is also 
   wrong, I will try to find it out myself. Ofcourse if it is right, I will
   correct the mistake, and you will get credit for it.

Q: I know something about a car, where you haven't got any description.
A: If you want to share it, be my guest! I love expansion, and you will get
   full credit for it.

Q: I can't find , what should I do?
A: If you have done what the description says and still can't find it, and if
   you REALLY need it, you can use a cheat if it is available for that car. 
   If there isn't a cheat for that vehicle, read the "where to find" section
   again. Still can't find it? Send me an e-mail and I'll do my best for you.
   NOTE: If there isn't an explanation in the Where to find part of a vehicle
   I haven't found a mission where it appears in, or a static spawning point.

Q: How many cars can I store?
A: Amount of wheels, parted by 4, round down. You can store anything, as long
   as it's completely in the yellow space.

Q: I really wanted to drive  and when I first drove it, suddenly 
   a whole bunch of them appeared! How is that possible? 
Simple Answer: its to speed up rendering speed. If every car you passed by 
   was 100% different than the car behind it and infront of it dont you think
   it would slow the game down? they place alot of variations of the same 
   vehicle your driving to prevent the game from slowing down due to loading.
Complex Answer: Basically, the car models are too detailed for the RAGE 
   engine to keep all of them cached and available to show up at any given 
   time. So only a few cars are loaded into memory to spawn. But since the 
   game has to have the car you're driving in cache, that puts it on a 
   relatively short list of available cars to spawn, so all of a sudden 
   everyone's got an Infernus.
