had these images for a while. I do like to shrink an image to the pixely little sprite the game uses for comparisons.



And for anybody who is interested a kind of toy database so far. tho its real slow going. gathering the best top down images I can too.

pastebin.com/qkKQVAxv

The biggest struggle so far is the firetruck. can't seem to find a long nose truck like that, that was around in the 90s in toy form. I thought it was the hotwheels one but that only came out recently. strange how they are making modern toys in 90s trucks cars vans etc all of a sudden

Image seems to be broken,
Got it on my list as most likely Matchbox 83 corvette. I should really get back to finishing that list :|

Fun fact pretty much every car here is basically a bird's eye view of a Hot Wheels car, so you could have a collection of GTA cars

Going to throw in another weird opinion based on looking at toys again. Usually I would stick to games set in America having American cars but due to some of the other weirdness.

Most likely corgi, Seems mostly GTA was made from.. whatever ways laying around at the time. Still I would have at least tried to find a chevy van or something.

Well, Transit seems to be a better match :think:

Same type of car, different diecast model. Strange choice to base this on I feel.
Chrome interior can still be seen if you look at the taxi sprite now you know what you are looking for.

Never would have figured.
I was sitting here thinking it was a ford for many years But Skid, you got it right on there.

I found this, so the color scheme did exist in Hotwheels.


Turns out the 29 special is a 30s car. I would never have guessed this was a Bugatti. Good work.

Kind of funny how they just mirrored the E without removing it or changing it.
Also the symbol in the center of the lights I always thought was some part of the lights. Looks like they just made them wider and square.

Here I come years later.

Yep The old GTA cars were originally just pictures of toys that were edited and such. I find this a good way to find out what the old GTA cars are.
even tho I am usually met with fierce arguments because they decided to call A Corvette Thunderhead, and a Camaro Stallion.

Nice find, I had not seen that Chevrolet yet but I can bet it is the one used, Seen a pink one that was pretty close I guess you will not see this by now because I am years late but yep :B

I was actually just browsing through the Midnight Club II page and was giving some of the playable cars a GTA manufacturer. For instance, the 1971 Bestia now becomes the 1971 Imponte Bestia. It'll get kinda confusing though, especially since there was a Grotti Bestia added in a GTA Online update... maybe there'll be a Maibatsu Bestia added as well! :lol:

Why? It doesn't make any sense to give manufacturer names to cars in GTA before GTA IV (not talking about a few exceptions of cars which appeared in commercials). Giving manufacturer names to cars in other Rockstar games is even more pointless.
