Has anyone gotten it to spawn or found a spawning point? If you've completed the mission "Minor Turbulence", you'll know the vehicle I'm talking about.

I beat that mission but I don't really remember it. Are you taking about the Jeep?

Yeah, there's a jacked up off road version of it.

You can steal them in missions where you are fighting the mercenaries from Meriweather. There are 3 missions that I can think of. 2 are Michael missions and the 3rd involves all 3 characters. in the 3rd you will need to take the vehicle and drive away and fail the mission.

For those who haven't finished the game, you *might* be able to grab one by keeping an empty space in Michael's house garage before starting the mission 'Meltdown', about 80% through the main storyline. Without giving anything away, you'll find at least two of these trucks parked in front of Michael's garage at one point. Just get out of your car, and drive one into the garage.

 

I've never tried this because I never really wanted it, but I can't see any reason it wouldn't work. You do have to do this pretty quickly though, but you can always fail the mission, don't retry it, and it should still be in your garage at that point.

It does. I did this to save a second one that I transferred over to Trevor and saved in the Sandy Shores garage (since the Sandking is too big to fit in it) to be my immediate access off-road "fun truck".

Maybe it's just me, I kinda thought the Sandking shoulda been Trevor's personal vehicle... or at least have him switch to it when he started makin' good money.

 

A step further, would have also liked to have been able to set a purchased vehicle as their personal, since personals are really the only vehicles that can't get lost...but I digress, as to not turn this into one of "those" kinds of threads. :)

I was generally satisfied with the personal vehicle selections, but yeah, the ability to choose would have been nice. I had thought with all this talk of "car insurance", Rockstar had finally dealt with the issue of losing custom or unique vehicles so easily, but no, one of the best features of the game's free roam aspect ended up being exclusive to GTA Online. :thumbsdown:

 

Seriously, guys, THQ solved this problem with their very first GTA clone in Saints Row by making it so you have to actually choose to remove vehicles permanently from your garage, so it's about time GTA follows suit with this. Not saying SR is better or anything, so no need to jump down my throat about that, but come on. :bashhead:

^ Yeah, I agree with the insurance thing. So far I've kind of had more fun on single player anyway. Did you finally get the lifted Mesa btw? It's pretty awesome.

Yeah, I have two of them. One (with a roof) in Michael's garage and one (without a roof) in Trevor's trailer garage and painted to match his Bodhi.

Still got less then 30 percent on the mission side, but I've concentrated more on that, I still get sidetracked soaking everything in though, it's how I've always played GTA loving the atmosphere more then the story particulars. However, some of the story I find rather disturbing, more on that later in a topic more suited.

 

As for rare vehicles though, I got a comment on GTAC as I recall, about the Sabre Turbo from past GTA San Andreas, I found one, it does seem pretty rare, it showed up at an intersection near the dry SA riverbed on the Los Santos East Side, I think it was near where there's a police station with armor in a driveway on the East side (of the building) I doubt there's a spawn point, but like many GTAs in the past, pick different vehicles to aid in the spawning of others.

Actually, the Sabre Turbo was unique to Vice City, the one in SA being just a normal Sabre. But yeah, the Sabre Turbo seems to be one of the rarest vehicles in the game. I've only seen it spawn during a couple of missions. But it's no matter to me, I've come to prefer this beast.

If anyone knows how to make a Sabre spawn, though, I'm all ears.

That's cool then, I parked mine as the first car in the garage (outside the home Safehouse), I was thinking that nice bulletproof police van used in road blocks is also one to covet

Not really, if I'm expecting trouble I just head over to LS Customs and armor up a Gauntlet. It can run like a sports car and take bullets like a tank.

On the PS3, I was tooling around the army airfield base and one of the personal transport trucks showed up, I knabbed it successfully but after parking just outside Franklin's garage when I'd eluded police and went to do some other task, I came back to find it had vanished. DAMMIT! Too hard to park in the driveway garage, but perhaps in the off-site storage.

 

Speaking of the police van, it's not gonna cost you to just get one of them during an extended police chase. I crashed mine in a ditch, and though I was stuck, until I got out of the van, no one could shoot me, a cop was getting close to my door, but he didn't attempt to pull me out, so who knows how long you can maintain that, but the van seems to take enough hits that it just goes slower and slower... before I actually got stuck
