Man, I love Grand Theft Auto "Vice City". I wanted its sequel "San Andreas" for some time now but just haven't gotten to it. That was until I saw Wal-Mart had it for $9.95! Check it out, its freakin' awesome!


BTW, for those that have never played "Vice City", there is a C4 in it that you can cruise around in. For legal purposes, I am sure, they couldn't call it that and it only has two taillights, but it is way obvious that its a vette.

Which system are you playing it on? I have Vice City for PS2. I haven't played it in a LONG time though. My wife doesn't appreciate me blowing stuff up in front of the kids....

I don't remember a C4 in the game... I may have to pull it out again some evening!

I play everything on PC....never owned a PS. The C4 in Vice City was called a "banshee" i believe..could be wrong.

Well, that name sounds familiar. Hopefully I can find some time to check it out. Thanks for the heads-up.

I'm still enjoying the Grand Turismo series. The vettes aren't too good in it though. Saddly mis-programmed. Odd choices too, an L48?The "Corvette" video game that came out a few years ago was horrrible. Sure it was all vettes, but the gameplay and graphics sucked. Gave my copy to my nephew. He doesn't care yet, too young.

Johnny, have you ever played Driver 3? Coz when I first read the original post, I was thinking the same thing. But then I remembered in Driver 3 there is a car that looks like a C3, but only has two tail lights.

I have to agree about the Corvette video game. Bad, bad, BAD! I sure do hope that GT5 has at least a ZR1 in it. I am betting that they will also release downloadable packs of vehicles later that are not included in the original game.

Rockband for PS3 offers new songs for download that are not on the original game disc. It's pretty cool.

I've already posted pix of "My Car" from GT4, but what the hell.....

Thanks. I really dig the Z06 wheels on mine.

This car has treated me incredibly well so far. It would be hard for me to part with it. But if I came across a Ruby Z that I could actually afford.....

You would be correct Casey, for some reason I had in my brain that the last year for that belt line was '91. Thanks!

My apologies for the size of those pix. And my thanks to whoever resized them. I forgot about the problems some members were having. :silent:
