======================================================================= GRAND THEFT AUTO 4 SPECIAL VEHICLE FAQ ======================================================================== Author: Johnny H. H. the 4th (Lancet Jades) Author's Homepage: http://www.evermoreforums.com/forums/index.php Version: 1.00 (completed May 29th, 2008) Sites with permission to post this FAQ: GameFAQs.com Neoseeker.com Gamesradar.com Cheatplanet.com GamersHell.com Supercheats.com Mycheats.com ======================================================== VERSION HISTORY ======================================================== 0.10 Completed May 3rd, 2008. Prototype edition. 0.15 Completed May 6th, 2008. Second incomplete edition. 0.20 Completed May 7th, 2008. Third incomplete edition. Added info on possible spoilers and about sites who wish to use this guide. 0.25 Completed May 8th, 2008. Fourth incomplete edition. 0.30 Completed May 9th, 2008. Fifth incomplete edition. Removed UJ (Unjackable) and vehicles therein from the listing of vehicles for much the same reason I didn't include locked cars in my PS2-era guides: it's pointless. Removed a lot of vehicles that turned out not to be special. 0.35 Completed May 9th, 2008. Sixth incomplete edition. Changed some stuff around a bit. First obtainable proofed entry! 0.40 Completed May 10th, 2008. Seventh incomplete edition. 0.50 Completed May 11th, 2008. Eigth incomplete edition. 0.60 Completed May 14th, 2008. Ninth incomplete edition. 0.70 Completed May 16th, 2008. Tenth incomplete edition. Identified Stockade unique vehicle! 0.80 Completed May 25th, 2008. Getting close to the end. Renamed who gives you missions to reflect who's mission % they count towards. 1.00 Completed May 29th, 2008. FINALLY FINISHED THE GAME. Removed a couple vehicles, looked into MOST vehicles in the two possible final missions. Still no obtainable proofed vehicles. ======================================================== ABOUT ======================================================== This guide is to assist those players who enjoy collecting rare or unique vehicles. This guide lists all known proofed, special property, unique, and even rare vehicles (which often have to be unlocked). I'd say more, but I pretty much just summed it up. Yes, this is the same preamble as my other guides. Copy/paste FTW. This guide was written with the X-Box 360 version, not the PS3 version. No differences are known as of yet, however there may be some. This guide is NOT a "rare car" guide. Vehicles that appear rarely, but DO appear in free roam (such as Infernus) do NOT qualify for the scope of this guide. Only cars that have some special feature such as proofing, special paintjob, special features, or can only be acquired via missions are included. CAUTION! This guide may inadvertently contain spoilers of story missions! While this guide's scope does not really involve spoiling anything, due to what is required of it, the potential for small spoilers, such as names or events is present. Just keep that in mind. ======================================================== TABLE OF CONTENTS ======================================================== 1: Terms in the guide 2: Parking Spots 3: Proofed vehicles (NONE YET) 4: Unique vehicles 4.1 - Laundromat 4.2 - Police Stockade (1st of 2) 4.3 - Police Stockade (2nd of 2) 4.4 - Romero's Hearse 5: Specially colored/featured vehicles 5.1 - Beige Willard (1st of 2) 5.2 - Beige Willard (2nd of 2) 5.3 - Black and Red Zombie (1st of 2) 5.4 - Maroon Flatbed 5.5 - Rich Yellow Comet 5.6 - Black Schafter w/ Silver Grill (1st of 2) 5.7 - Black Stallion 5.8 - Yellow Patriot (1st of 3) 5.9 - Yellow Patriot (2nd of 3) 5.10 - Cavalcade w/ Black Wheels 5.11 - Yellow Patriot (3rd of 3) 5.12 - Cherry Red Hellfury 5.13 - Gray Banshee w/ Black Stripe 5.14 - Black and Red Zombie (2nd of 2) 5.15 - Pink Feltzer 5.16 - Orange PMP 600 5.17 - Black Schafter w/ Silver Grill (2nd of 2) 5.18 - Red or Green Luster PMP 600 w/ spoiler 5.19 - Gold Infernus 6: Unobtainable special vehicles 6.1 - CP Beige Willard 6.2 - CP Ruiner 6.3 - CP Marbelle 6.4 - CP Black and Red Zombie (1st of 2) 6.5 - CP NRG 900 6.6 - CP Black and Red Zombie (2nd of 2) 6.7 - CP Intruder 6.8 - Unobtainable CP SuperGT 7: Rare vehicles 7.1 - NOOSE Cruiser 7.2 - Roman's Taxi 8: Unconfirmed vehicles (For now, all are considered unconfirmed) 9: Mission list 10: Frequently Asked Questions 11: Contact info 12: Credits 13: Boilerplate ======================================================== *1* TERMS IN THE GUIDE ======================================================== This is a listing of all the special terms used in this guide. BP - Bulletproof. This vehicle will not take damage from bullets. Windows cannot be damaged, and shots will not count towards the car being destroyed. Unlike the previous GTAs, tires are apparently also immune to being popped by gunfire. FP - Fireproof. This vehicle will not catch fire or otherwise take damage from molotovs. Tires also will not catch fire. This does not prevent the car from catching fire from critical damage. EP - Explosionproof. This car is immune to explosive damage, such as from grenades, rocket launchers, or exploding cars. Does not stop the car itself from exploding. DP - Damageproof. This car cannot be damaged by bashing it around (into other cars, walls, etc.) or by melee attacks (unproven). CP - Comprehensiveproof. This combines the qualities of bulletproof, fireproof, explosionproof, and damageproof. UJ - Unjackable. Now that even locked cars can be jacked by breaking the windows, UJ means that Niko will simply refuse to break the windows and get in. Even breaking the windows anyways, he still refuses to open the doors. Jack - To jack a vehicle means to steal it. This is probably not a necessary entry, but I figured I'd add it just in case. Unique - This vehicle is unique and found in story missions only, or other limited-time availability missions, and thus can be missed altogether. Unobtainable - A vehicle that, for whatever reason, cannot be obtained and/or stored with its properties. NOTE: During some missions, AI drivers that you chase are given "super" stats: speed, acceleration, turning, etc, designed to ensure that you cannot catch up to them until the game deems it okay (usually involves the target reaching their destination intact). If you are in danger of catching up or passing them (or if you take a shortcut to do so), they hyper-accelerate to stay in the lead. They also tend to slow down and "wait" for you if you fall too far behind, although they never stop completely. Discovered by - This is not necessarily the first person to discover a vehicle, but rather the first person to report it to me. Formulated by - This is who informed me of the strategy to obtain the vehicle. Vehicles that were pointed out to be, but where I was given no strategy to obtain it often lead to me developing the strategy, although most will have the same entry for Discovered and Formulated by. NOTE: Vehicles that are given to you (such as the Rich Yellow Comet) have no strategy credits listed, as it is too simple to warrant credit. ======================================================== *2* PARKING SPOTS ======================================================== Places to store vehicles. When you load a game, all stored vehicles are restored to top condition and health. Even destroyed vehicles will be repaired, so long as you get the carcass of the vehicle into the spot. Even Helicopters may be saved in parking spots. Each spot can hold two vehicles maximum. Any more than two get deleted. Parking spots are active from the very start of the game, even if you haven't acquired that property (or lose it, or never obtain it). Roman's Apartment, Mohawk Ave., Hove Beach (Broker) -Unlocked after The Cousins Bellic Mallorie's Apartment, Joliet St., South Bohan (Bohan) -Unlocked after Roman's Sorrow Playboy X's Mansion, Xenotime St., Northwood (Algonquin) -Unlocked after The Holland Play (choose Playboy X) Roman's New Apartment, Albany Ave., Middle Park East -Unlocked after ??? Ray's Apartment, Mahesh Ave., Alderney City (Alderney) -Unlocked after Smackdown ======================================================== *3* PROOFED VEHICLES ======================================================== These vehicles all have a special proofing, granting them immunity from one or more forms of damage. AS OF YET, NO OBTAINABLE PROOFED VEHICLES HAVE BEEN FOUND. ======================================================== *4* UNIQUE VEHICLES ======================================================== These vehicles only appear during story missions, and once the game is completed, cannot be acquired without cheating. --------- 4.1 - Laundromat --------- Mission: Hung Out to Dry (Vlad Glebov) Difficulty: * Required: Mission failure Discovered by: Lancet Jades Strategy: Instead of going to the front of the Laundromat, go around back first. The Laundromat van will be sitting there. Break in and jack it. Be warned, however, that this will fail the mission, but is the only way to obtain this vehicle. Formulated by: Lancet Jades NOTE: This vehicle comes in a variety of colors. NOTE 2: I've heard that this vehicle randomly appears on the streets (of Algonquin, to be specific). If anyone else who sees one can report to me, I'll remove it from this list. --------- 4.2 - Police Stockade (1st of 2) --------- Mission: Three Leaf Clover (Patrick McReary) Diffculty: Impossible Required: Mission failure, a heavy vehicle, and huge cojones Discovered by: Helped by Metzger0528 Strategy: Two of these barricade the streets after you escape the bank. The problem is they are unjackable entirely. Even if you fail the mission, they will be unjackable. The only alternative is to push them to a parking spot afterwards. The problem? You keep that 5-star wanted level after failing the mission, so you'd have to push it with 5 stars. It's technically doable (hence why it's in this section), but don't count on succeeding. Just grab the next one available. The major kicker is, you can't escape the 5-star level first, otherwise the trucks will vanish when you return to push it back. Formulated by: Lancet Jades --------- 4.3 - Police Stockade (2nd of 2) --------- Mission: Tunnel of Death (Derrick McReary) Diffculty: ** Required: Mission failure Discovered by: Chris Allen Strategy: This truck is transporting Aiden. Proceed to the point where you drive the van, and after losing the wanted level, drive to a parking spot instead of to the destination, then shoot Packie to fail the mission. If you wait until you reach the car, the van will now be UJ, and thus unobtainable. It may be possible to push ot back to the parking spot using a heavy vehicle (or vehicles), while keeping the car close enough not to fail, if failure means that much to you. Formulated by: Lancet Jades with help from Ket Halpak --------- 4.4 - Romero's Hearse --------- Mission: Undertaker (Francis McReary) Diffculty: *** Required: A gun Discovered by: Neo Strategy: This vehicle first appears at the start of the mission as the Hearse parked outside the church. It is UJ at this point though. You can either go after it and jack it after finishing the mission, or if you don't want to bother and don't mind failing, drive it to a parking spot when you get to drive it, and then shoot Packie. If you choose to try and wrest it from the driver post-mission, shoot at the vehicle. There's a good chance the driver will get scared and abandon the vehicle, leaving you free to take it (the other cars seem to be UJ after the mission, at least before they're spooked). Watch out for cops when getting it, though. Formulated by: Neo NOTE: This vehicle can appear randomly on the streets, but ONLY if you are driving one yourself. It is thus still unique, as unless you obtain it in the mission, you won't see one elsewhere. ======================================================== *5* SPECIALLY COLORED/FEATURED VEHICLES ======================================================== These vehicles all have some special color of feature that the vehicle usually does not have. --------- 5.1 - Beige Willard (1st of 2) --------- Mission: It's Your Call (Roman Bellic) Difficulty: * Required: Mission failure Discovered by: Lancet Jades Strategy: This is the car the Albanian loan sharks drive, and is UJ. Smash the window or otherwise attack the loan sharks to fail the mission, then simply drive it back to your apartment's parking space, as it loses UJ after the mission has been failed. Formulated by: Lancet Jades --------- 5.2 - Beige Willard (2nd of 2) --------- Mission: Bleed Out (Roman Bellic) Difficulty: * Required: Nothing Discovered by: Lancet Jades Strategy: Again, the Albanians use this car. Dardan drives off in this, but once killed you can claim the vehicle yourself. You'll have to drive it and Roman's Taxi back and forth from wherever you claim it to your safehouse if you want to pass the mission, however. It is UJ before the chase, so you can't jack it then. Formulated by: Lancet Jades --------- 5.3 - Black and Red Zombie (1st of 2) --------- Mission: No Love Lost (Mikhail Faustin) Difficulty: * Required: Nothing Discovered by: Jesse Giramma Strategy: These are the bikes used by the gang in this mission. The Lost's trademark motorcycle, a red and black Zombie. Simply pick one up after finishing the mission. Formulated by: Lancet Jades --------- 5.4 - Maroon Flatbed --------- Mission: Rigged to Blow (Mikhail Faustin) Difficulty: * Required: Mission failure Discovered by: Lancet Jades Strategy: This is the truck with the bomb. To save it, park it at your safehouse parking spot and shoot at it until it blows up (it should only take 3-4 shots maximum). Quickly go save the game, then reload. The truck should be waiting for you, all shiny and new (even though it was dirty in the mission). Formulated by: Lancet Jades --------- 5.5 - Rich Yellow Comet --------- Mission: No. 1 (Brucie Kibbutz) Difficulty: * Required: Nothing Discovered by: Lancet Jades Strategy: This car is used in the street race. It is the same car as the DP Comet, so obtaining it is the same: simply keep it after the mission. --------- 5.6 - Black Schafter w/ Silver Grill (1st of 2) --------- Mission: The Maste and the Molotov (Mikhail Faustin) Difficulty: * Required: Nothing Discovered by: Lancet Jades w/ help from Coyote Strategy: This is Mikhail's car. Normally Black Schafters with black rims only have a black grill, but this one is silver. Drive it from the club back to a parking spot, then return and finish the mission. Formulated by: Lancet Jades --------- 5.7 - Black Stallion --------- Mission: Escuela of the Streets (Manny Escuela) Difficulty: * Required: Mission failure Discovered by: Lancet Jades Strategy: The dealers drive this vehicle during the following scene. After they arrive at the warehouse, get in and drive off. This disappears after finishing the mission, so failing is required to keep it. Formulated by: Lancet Jades --------- 5.8 - Yellow Patriot (1st of 3) --------- Mission: Blow Your Cover (Elizabeta Torres) Difficulty: * Required: Nothing Discovered by: Lancet Jades Strategy: This vehicle is provided for you parked outside as soon as the mission begins. Simply park it in a parking spot and proceed with the mission as you please. --------- 5.9 - Yellow Patriot (2nd of 3) --------- Mission: Deconstruction for Beginners (Playboy X) Difficulty: * Required: Nothing Discovered by: Lancet Jades Strategy: This vehicle is provided for you parked outside as soon as the mission begins. It is even parked in Playboy X's parking spot, so just leave it and it'll stay there. NOTE: It will ONLY appear if the west half of the parking spot is clear. --------- 5.10 - Cavalcade w/ Black Wheels --------- Mission: Deconstruction for Beginners (Playboy X) Difficulty: * Required: Nothing Discovered by: -Morbid- Strategy: This vehicle is the one Playboy X has the weapons stocked in. After getting in and retrieving the weapons, get back in and drive it to a parking spot, then proceed with the mission. Formulated by: -Morbid- NOTE: This vehicle has varying colors (I've seen blue, red, and green). None of these colors are special, however. It DOES seem to be limited to ONLY these dark-tinted color varities, though. --------- 5.11 - Yellow Patriot (3rd of 3) --------- Mission: Photo Shoot (Playboy X) Difficulty: * Required: Nothing Discovered by: Lancet Jades Strategy: This vehicle is provided for you parked outside as soon as the mission begins. It is even parked in Playboy X's parking spot, so just leave it and it'll stay there. NOTE: It will ONLY appear if the west half of the parking spot is clear. --------- 5.12 - Cherry Red Hellfury --------- Mission: Ruff Rider (Dwayne Forge) Difficulty: ** Required: Drive-by weapon Discovered by: Jesse Giramma Strategy: This vehicle is driven by Jayvon in this mission. Shoot him off of it and collect it, then park it after the mission. Formulated by: Jesse Giramma --------- 5.13 - Gray Banshee w/ Black Stripe --------- Mission: Meltdown (Ray Boccino) Difficulty: ** Required: Nothing Discovered by: Brendan Mills / Jesse Giramma Strategy: Niko automatically jacks this vehicle after the cutscene at the first destination. Simply drive it to a parking spot when you are supposed to meet Ray at the bridge - no mission failure necessary. Just make sure to reach that point with it intact. Formulated by: Brendan Mills / Jesse Giramma --------- 5.14 - Black and Red Zombie (2nd of 2) --------- Mission: No Way on the Subway (Ray Boccino) Difficulty: ** Required: Vehicle-capable weapon (pistol, SMG) Discovered by: Dan Malick Strategy: These are the bikes used by the gang in this mission. The Lost's trademark motorcycle, a red and black Zombie. Shoot one of the bikers off of the bike during the chase, then pick it up. Formulated by: Dan Malick --------- 5.15 - Pink Feltzer --------- Mission: ...I'll Take Her (Gerald McReary) Difficulty: *** Required: A gun Discovered by: guitarmasterpwn Strategy: You drive this car during the mission. While you can always fail the mission by shooting the girl and drive it to a parking spot, you can also shoot the guy after the mission and claim the car yourself that way. Formulated by: guitarmasterpwn --------- 5.16 - Orange PMP 600 --------- Mission: Dining Out (Gambetti) Difficulty: ** Required: Nothing in particular Discovered by: Lancet Jades Strategy: The target uses this to escape the restaurant. Take him out somehow and claim it for yourself. Remember to aim for the driver, not the gunner. Formulated by: Lancet Jades --------- 5.17 - Black Schafter w/ Silver Grill (2nd of 2) --------- Mission: A Revenger's Tragedy (Roman Bellic - Deal) Difficulty: ** Required: Nothing Discovered by: Lancet Jades Strategy: A few of these are in the compound you assault after the chase. Drive one to a parking spot, then resume the mission. Just be careful not to destroy it during the firefight. It is the same as Mikhail's car from The Master and the Molotov. Formulated by: Lancet Jades --------- 5.18 - Red or Green Luster PMP 600 w/ spoiler --------- Mission: Out of Comission (Roman Bellic - Revenge) Difficulty: ** Required: Nothing Discovered by: Lancet Jades Strategy: A few of these are in the compound you assault after the chase. Drive one to a parking spot, then resume the mission. Just be careful not to destroy it during the firefight. Whether you get red, green, or both varieties seems random. Formulated by: Lancet Jades --------- 5.19 - Gold Infernus --------- Mission: Free roam Difficulty: * Required: Nothing Discovered by: PyRiAx Edwardo Strategy: This car is given to you by Bernie after a certain point in the story (need clarification on when). Just drive it to a parking spot. ======================================================== *6* UNOBTAINABLE SPECIAL VEHICLES ======================================================== These vehicles are unobtainable for whatever reason is listed. This can include any vehicle type from the previous three sections, but as they cannot be acquired permanently, there is no need to put them in those sections. --------- 6.1 - CP Beige Willard --------- Mission: Bleed Out (Roman Bellic) Discovered by: Lancet Jades Strategy: This is the car before the chase with Dardan is triggered. Attacking it will cause Bledar and Kalem to attack you immediately, but it cannot be damaged before the chase. Unobtainable: Before the chase, it is unjackable, and afterwards it loses its properties. --------- 6.2 - CP Ruiner --------- Mission: Ivan the Not So Terrible (Vlad Glebov) Discovered by: Lancet Jades Strategy: This is the car Ivan drives during the chase. As his can accelerate far beyond you to keep ahead of you, there is no way to actually claim the car. Unobtainable: It loses its property when he crashes at the construction site. --------- 6.3 - CP Marbelle --------- Mission: Uncle Vlad (Roman Bellic) Discovered by: Lancet Jades Strategy: This is the car Vlad drives during the chase. As his can accelerate far beyond you to keep ahead of you, there is no way to actually claim the car. Unobtainable: It loses its property when he crashes at the riverside dock. --------- 6.4 - CP Black and Red Zombie (1st of 2) --------- Mission: No Love Lost (Mikhail Faustin) Discoverd by: Lancet Jades Strategy: This is the bike driven by the target up until the rest of the gang joins the fight. Unobtainable: Cannot jack it, and it loses its property after the gang shows up. --------- 6.5 - CP NRG 900 --------- Mission: I Need Your Clothes, Your Boots, and Your Motorcycle (Gerry) Discovered by: Lancet Jades Strategy: The motorcycle driven by the target in this mission. It is CP for a large portion of the chase. Unobtainable: No way to obtain it during the chase, and afterwards it loses its properties. --------- 6.6 - CP Black and Red Zombie (2nd of 2) --------- Mission: No Way on the Subway (Ray Boccino) Discoverd by: Lancet Jades Strategy: This is the bike driven by the targets up until they break through the subway fence. Unobtainable: No way to obtain it before the bikers breach the subway's fence. The rear biker's Zombie loses its CP as soon as they begin moving into the subway, and the main biker loses CP as soon as he gets off of the train tracks in Broker. --------- 6.7 - CP Intruder --------- Mission: Truck Stop (Phil Bell) Discoverd by: Jesse Giramma Strategy: This is the car that Ray drives off in at the start of the mission. Unobtainable: Ray drives off too fast for you to jack it, and it vanishes as soon as he rounds the corner near your position. He cannot be sniped out, and your car is too slow at accelerating (especially given you have to go the opposite direction it starts facing) to keep up and prevent him from vanishing, assuming he wouldn't still vanish. NOTE: This is probably the CP vehicle with the most potential to obtain! So for all of you who want a CP car to call your own, work at trying to obtain this somehow!!! --------- 6.8 - CP SuperGT --------- Mission: Union Drive (Bernie Crane) Discoverd by: Lancet Jades Strategy: This is the car the blackmailer's goons use Unobtainable: The car cannot be caught until the chase is over, and then it loses its proofing. ======================================================== *7* RARE VEHICLES ======================================================== These vehicles aren't anything inherently special, but are nonetheless unique for various reasons, often requiring completion of a mission or side mission to unlock. These can all be obtained at the end of the game without any problem --------- 7.1 - NOOSE Cruiser --------- Unlocked: Not unlocked, just very rare Found: Shows up randomly at 4+ stars. This car has a different paintjob than normal Police Cruisers, and the row of siren lights are a flat, small row, as opposed to the more prominent v-shaped row of normal cars. Missions the car may also be found in: Three Leaf Clover --------- 7.2 - Roman's Taxi --------- Unlocked: When Roman's Respect stat reaches 100% (Special Ability). Found: Call Roman for a free taxi and it will appear. Missions the car may also be found in: The Cousins Bellic, It's Your Call, Bleed Out, Easy Fare, Jamaican Heat, Roman's Sorrow ======================================================== *8* UNCONFIRMED VEHICLES ======================================================== These are vehicles that are as of yet unconfirmed. They are thought to exist with whatever special properties they are mentioned, but whether they can be obtained as such, or even CAN possess said properties is unknown. Credit will go to whomever can provide evidence they exist. FOR THE MOMENT, ALL VEHICLES IN THIS GUIDE ARE CONSIDERED UNCONFIRMED. CONFIRMING THAT THE VEHICLES LISTED ARE IN FACT UNIQUE AND SPECIAL IS TOP PRIORITY. ======================================================== *9* MISSION LIST ======================================================== A list of all missions in the game, along with what vehicles are available in those missions.

A: Email me, and let me know. You will receive full credit for it. Q: [Insert vehicle] doesn't possess a property you said it did! A: Most likely, you did not follow the precise strategy. If you did, and it does not retain its property, contact me and say so, although I personally check each and every vehicle. Q: [Insert vehicle] isn't special, but you still have it listed here! A: Send me the info on where it can be found at any time (especially the end of the game), and I'll adjust or remove it from this guide accordingly. Q: One of the vehicles you listed is one I discovered first, and here's proof! Thief! A: If you have proof you discovered a vehicle first, show it to me and if I determine you really did discover it first, credit will be given. Q: You missed the DP Yellow Comet in Brucie's "No. 1" mission! A: The car is not damage-proof. It has a rear engine, so bashing around the front of the car doesn't damage it as easily as front-engine vehicles. Q: There's this car, the Sultan RS, that's special! A: NO IT ISN'T. It is not special because it's available infinitely. PLEASE stop IMing/emailing me about this. It constitutes about 75% of the total emails/IMs I get about this game. ======================================================== *11* CONTACT INFORMATION ======================================================= THERE WILL BE A LOT OF INFO I NEED, THINGS TESTED, VEHICLES DISCOVERED, AND SO ON. DO NOT HESITATE TO EITHER EMAIL ME OR POST A MESSAGE ON THE GTA4 360 FORUM (NOT PS3). My screenname is LancetJades on GameFAQs. Feel free to IM me on AIM as well. If I don't respond, I'm not ignoring you, I just tend to wander away from my computer at times. If you wish to contact me, just email me: lancet jades at g mail dot com (remove the spaces, obviously, and replace the at with the proper sign) Alternatively, IM me at: AIM: Lancet Jades YIM: lancetjades (not on often) MSN: email@example.com (rarely on) I never check my @hotmail.com address, so don't send mail to it. I don't mind being contacted about this game, so don't hesitate if you have a question or comment. But if you're gonna flame me, it won't work (I'll just have a good laugh and ignore you). I also don't check my yahoo email address, so don't bother sending any mail there either. I'm a perfectionist, so if you have anything to contribute or correct, please do so. You'll receive full credit (credit goes to the screenname you talk to me from, so if you want another name, you have to specify it). Even if you're pointing out a spelling or grammatical mistake, please do so, no matter how small. Note however, I live in the U.S., and as such, spelling it "color" instead of "colour" is NOT a mistake. If you wish to use this guide on your site, aside from asking my permission, I require you in question to automatically fetch any updates I make from GameFAQs.com yourselves. I only update to GameFAQs.com and if I discover other sites carrying my guides have out-of-date versions, I will ask that it be removed. ======================================================== *12* CREDITS ======================================================== Brendan Mills ~Info on the PCJ 600 in "I Need Your Clothes[etc]" even though it was proven not to be special, as well as the gray/black Banshee in Meltdown.
