The Missions are listed in the order the bonus cars have in the Free Ride
Prototype list.

Sniper Mission - Manta Prototype

This mission involves a Manta Prototype that is parked on the front steps of a
building in the center of downtown. There is a sniper rifle next to it and 3
enemy snipers who start shooting as soon as you take the mission. Run towards
the cars right side jumping as you go. Pick up the rifle and head back towards
the building, go around the left to the back of the building. You must jump
when you're moving as the snipers are very good. Continue around the back of
the building. As you do you will notice a sniper across the street from the
drivers side of the Manta. He is up high on the building. Kill him and continue
around the building. The second sniper is directly across the street from the
front of the Manta halfway up the center of the building. The last sniper is
across the street from the passenger side of the Manta. He is on the short
black building by it's sign.

Invisible Man Mission - Bolt Thrower

This mission starts by Morello's Bar. It involves following an invisible man
who is relatively difficult to see as he tries to escape. Although he can run
a little faster than you he pauses frequently. The easiest place to lose him is
as he gets on the elevated train. It is best to do this mission first if you
are trying to save all the cars in the Extreme Free Ride Home gamesave. It
seems that if the invisible man can see a dead body somewhere on the map he
will stop moving at certain points.

Sea Monster Mission - Hotrod

This mission starts in the north west corner of the square in Chinatown. You
are given a SW Model 27 with six rounds of ammo. You must rescue a fair damsel
chained to the rocks on the beach in south west Downtown before she is devoured
by a sea monster. This location is where Paulie had his gun jam in the Morello
assasination attempt. It helps to use a fast bonus car for this mission such as
the Flamer as you are not given much time. Take the Terranova bridge and go
past the armory, turn right and go south by the most direct route to the beach.
When you get to the parking lot get out of the car and go left by way of the
rocks to get above the fair damsel. Shoot off the lock to free her.

Gangster Killing Mission - Black Dragon 4WD

This mission starts in the Works Quarter in front of the "agreed upon place"
from the Cigar Heist Mission. Upon excepting the challenge dive for the
Thompson machine gun in front of you and then proceed to kill about 8 gangsters
placed strategically around the balconies of the yard and alley in this area.

UFO Chase Mission - Mutagen FWD

This mission starts at the "T" dead end in the center of the Works Quarter. You
must follow a UFO. Drive over by the alien and the UFO will make it's first
move. The UFO moves to a new location each time you go under it and then waits
until you get under it again. It is easy to lose sight of the UFO however it
makes a sound you can hear when you are close to it. It goes through Little
Italy then to Central Island over the Central Island Tunnel. It crosses from
Central Island to a point due west of the one way street by the Downtown Church.
It goes straight over the Oakwood Church to the front of Oakwood Junior High
School. It then goes to its last stop at the Lighthouse. You are given a large
amount of time to complete the mission.

Flame Spear Circuit Mission - Flame Spear 4WD & Flamer

The Flame Spear 4WD is located in the same alley that you boosted the truck for
the Cigar Mission. This involves following a timed course defined by magenta
smoke pots. The mission ends at the south side of the Municpal Building. If you
make it you also get the Flamer, a nice little Celeste based hotrod. As far as
I can tell if you want to put the Flame Spear 4WD someplace in your Extreme
Free Ride Home gamesave, do not get out of the car after you win the mission.
You can not get back in the car after you exit. I put mine by a filling station
as a display piece.

Timed Explosive Truck Mission - Masseur 

The start point for this mission is in a parking lot north of the Hoboken
entrance to Oak Hill. You must drive the Truck that is loaded with explosives
to a location in the Works Quarter. It is a timed mission, you really have to
hustle and by all means be careful as a collision will result in the truck
exploding. The best route is a follows, turn left, go to end of the street and
turn left, go straight to the end and turn left. Make the right hand corner and
follow the street over the Guilliano Bridge. Make the turns to go over the West
Marshall Bridge. Go straight to the end of the street and then go left then
right down the alley shortcut. Go straight out the alley and where the street
ends go through the loose doors to the next alley shortcut (if you haven't
knocked them down prior to this). Be careful in the dirt part of the alley. As
you come to the end of the alley you will see the Massuer across the street on
your right.

Speed Explosive Truck Mission - Masseur Taxi

This mission starts in the parking lot where Paulie had his gun jam in the
Morello assassination attempt. You must drive the truck loaded with explosives
to a location in the Works Quarter. You have a limited time to attain 30mph and
after that you have to keep it above 34mph or the truck will explode. Although
there are many routes you can take I will give you the most direct possible
route. Get in the truck and accelerate towards the East Marshall bridge. Turn
on the speed limiter. Go over the bridge and then turn right (turn the speed
limiter off before you go over the bridge and let the speed build to 50 mph,
then when you are on the bridge turn it back on). Remember to make wide turns
and not to hit anything. Next turn left and go west on the divided street. A
block before you have to turn right and go north, turn the speed limiter off
again. This is to carry enough speed while going over the West Marshall Bridge.
When you're on the bridge turn the limiter back on. Take the 3rd left after the
bridge and then the next right. You are going to a location just past the sheds
that are west of the concrete mixing towers. This is one of the toughest missions
to beat.

Airplane Chase Mission - Demoniac

This mission starts from the small dirt road in easternmost Hoboken. You must
drive a Celeste Marquee 500 that has a bomb in it. The bomb goes off if you get
more than 200 meters from the airplane that is passing over. To win this
mission it is essential to drive as fast as possible and be sure of where you
are going. Take the road in front of you straight out until it ends and go left.
Take this road over the Giuliano Bridge. Take the first right, then go left
through the alley under the el train. Turn right and go through the Central
Island Tunnel. Go straight down this road and as it turns left. Make the next
right (it helps to cut the corner) and then it is a straight shot to the end.

Vision Distortion Race Car Mission - Crazy Horse

You must drive a Trautenberg Racing from the start point in the alley west of
Yellow Pete's, through a series of points to the finish location in front of
the Police Station. This is a timed mission and your vision is distorted by
speed. The trick is avoiding collisions and watching the map for your turns.

Bomb Defusing Mission - Bob Mylan 4WD

This mission starts in the easternmost area of Oak Hill. There is a black Thor
812 at the start point that can be used for the mission. The mission consists
of defusing dynamite bombs in a limited amount of time. The first bomb is by
the gate of the house behind the start point. The next bomb is in the middle of
the traffic circle in Oakwood. Then on to Downtown to the bomb at the front door
of the Church. Then go across the East Marshall Bridge to the bomb at the front
door of the Gallery. The next bomb is across the West Marshall Bridge at the
front door of the Railroad Station. The next bomb is at the front door of the
Fire Service Pumping Station. The next bomb is at the top of the stairway inside
Ralph's garage behind Saliere's Bar. Then go across the Terranova Bridge to the
bomb at the front door of the armory. The last bomb is a very large one behind
the building across from the Hoboken entrance to Oak Hill. You will spot the
bonus car as you come up the street.

Exploding Car Mission - Disorder 4WD

In this mission you must drive the white Celeste from the start point by the
westernmost parking lot in the Works Quarter to the parking lot on Central
Island that was in the "Great Deal" mission. You must start out as fast as
possible and maintain a great deal of speed to keep the explosions behind you. I
did this by using the manual transmission and carefully planning a route with as
wide of turns as possible. This is one of the hardest missions. I wish I could
tell you how fast you actually have to go, but I was so busy driving I didn't
have time to look. It's got to be close to 50. Mess up and lose your speed and
it's all over.

Gas Guzzling Trautenberg J Mission - Speedee 4WD

In this mission you have to drive a gas guzzling Trautenberg J from the start
location in East Hoboken to the Fire Service Pumping Station. You must practice
fuel management and stop at each gas station along the way to refuel. Keep
gathering speed and then putting the car in neutral to coast. You can also use
the down hill portions to gather some speed not using the gas. The first station
is easy to get to. Go straight down the street you're pointed at and go through
the area where there is no fence (there is a drop) and make a right on the main
street that goes to the station. I generally give it enough gas to hit about
40mph and then pop it into neutral. Refuel at the first station. Go out of the
station up the hill and make the first right. Remember to cut over the sidewalks
and make wide gentle turns. you then make a left then a quick right, and then
you're going down a slight down slope (if you've done this right you have hit
the gas twice so far). Hit the gas again to make the left to the street to the
bridge and coast to the bridge (by the way I generally do not let the car get
below 10mph). Then you accelerate up the bridge and then coast down. You will
carry a lot of speed down the bridge. As you are going down make a right by the
parking lot and go left down the alley that goes under the el train. Go left
then right to get to the gas station.  Make a u-turn just past the gas station
to come in the right way. Believe it or not I was doing the mission over for a
new profile and forgot about the third gas station and made it from the second.
It took me 4 tries and is close to impossible I must have got lucky. Anyway use
the same tactics to get to the third station and then to the Fire Service Pumping

Telephone Mission - Luciferon FWD

This mission starts across the street from the location that you took your last
passenger before being beat on by Morello's goons. Or as the passenger described
it the car lot by the department store. You answer the telephone at the start
point. As you get near a phone booth you can hear the phone ringing. You are
then directed to a phone booth in Chinatown. It is in an alley off the east
entrance to the square. The next phone booth is by the Central Island
Tunnel exit on Central Island. Coming from Chinatown go through the tunnel and
make the first right and then the next right, the phone booth will be on your
right. The next phone is at the Central Island harbor. It is behind a building
just south of where the paddle wheeler was tied up. The next phone booth is next
to the north east building in the park by the Terranova bridge. The last phone
booth is in the cemetery on the north side of the Oakwood Church. It is a VERY
SMALL phone booth. You will hear it ringing, look down.

Bridge Bombing Zeppelin Mission - Black Metal 4WD

This mission starts in front of the Hospital. You must drive the Bolt Ace across
the Terranova Bridge to a location behind the first building on the right after
the bridge. As you go under the Zeppelin it drops bombs on the bridge. One thing
you must do is use the speed limiter as the vehicle cuts out if you go much
above 40mph. This mission seems to involve a lot of luck. I've won by driving on
the extreme left side of the bridge, but it took a few tries. Alternately you
can push the vehicle across the bridge with another car before you start the
mission, then use a faster sturdier car to drive to the car, get in and finish
the mission. The Black Metal 4wd is bulletproof and is very good at ramming
other vehicles. It is on the other hand very slow.

Carry the Box Mission - Hillbilly 5.1 FWD

This mission starts in the parking lot on the Central Island side of Giuliano
Bridge. Perform some simple out of car tasks. Do not drop the box with the drop
items key, use the action key. Dropping the box in the wrong place will fail the
mission. The box goes in front of the other box, not on top or alongside by the
wall. Watch for the exclamation point to appear, then you know you have the
right location.

Kill Speedy Gonzalez Mission - Flower Power

This mission starts at a location just south of your house and can be seen from
your front door. Take a fast car with you and run down Speedy Gonzalez. He's
fast, if you dog him sometimes a street car will get him. He's easiest to run
down on the Gulliano Bridge. There are quite a few ways to kill Speedy. You can
block his doorway with a car and then shoot him. If you watch him he initially
runs up the street and pauses at the corner. If you have the sniper rifle you
can shoot him from a distance. You can also go around the block the opposite way
and run him down while he stands on the corner.

Taxi Time Bomb Mission - Manta Prototype Taxi

This mission starts by the waterfront in New Ark. There are a number of Taxis
with time bombs that are defused by dumping them in the water. It helps to set
up for this mission before hand. Take a Thor (any model will do) and leave it
next to the first Taxi. Steal another Thor and take it to the harbor on the
South West of Central Island. Leave this Thor by the water. Steal another Thor
and go over the West Marshall Bridge towards the Works Quarter. Take the first
left and then the next left. As you go down this road you will see an alley that
goes to the right. Go down the left side of the alley and leave the Thor just
past where you can get out of the car. This leaves some room so you can drive
the Taxi you will get past the Thor. OK, steal one more Thor and go back to the
start point. Get into the taxi and drive it up to the water and leave it in
neutral. Get into the Thor you left previously and knock it into the water. You
will then be shown the location of the second Taxi. Go up the ramp, turn
right, just before you go under the bridge turn down the alley and go East. The
alley comes straight out onto the Road go East and make the fourth right. Go
left just past the fence and you will see a large building project. The second
taxi is on the East side of the Westernmost building. Take the Taxi back the
same way you came. When you get to the ramp going down to the water, stop, put
it in neutral and get out. It should go in the water on its own. Get into the
Thor and go over the Giuliano Bridge to Central Island. Go down the road past
the Theater, turn left and you will see the second Taxi in an alley on your
left. Park on the sidewalk on the right side of the Taxi pointing towards the
water. Get in the Taxi and move it by the water where the wall is lowest and
leave it in neutral. Get back in the Thor and push the Taxi in the water. The
fourth Taxi is on the South side of the State Capital. Take that taxi to the
harbor where you left the Thor and dump it in the water. The fifth Taxi is in
the Port of Lost Heaven parking lot. When you get there take the Taxi on the
left (standing in front of them) the other Taxi does not have a bomb. Take the
Taxi down to where you left the Thor and dump it in the water.

Race Car Exchange Mission - Caeser 8C Mostro

This timed mission starts at the Hoboken entrance to Oak Hill. You must exchange
race cars onto transporters in a certain order. First take the Caeser 8C 2000 to
the transporter located next to the Old Prison, exchange it for the Carozella
C-Otto 4WD. Take the Carozella to the transporter located in the Harbor area
close to the West Marshall Bridge. Exchange the Carozella for the Brubaker 4WD.
Take the Brubaker back to the mission start point and put it on the transporter.
You really have to hustle on this mission. It is also very tricky to get the
smaller race cars on the transporters. Success unlocks the Caeser 80 Mostro and
all the race cars from the racing mission in single player. This mission also
seems to unlock the Trautenberg J. If you want to place the Brubaker somewhere
in your Extreme Free Ride Home gamesave do not get out of the car when the
mission ends. Once you get out of the car you can not drive it again.

Secret Car

There is a secret car hidden in the southwest building of the building project
west of Yellow Pete's. You will see it in your car radar when you are close to
it. Just walk thru the large wooden door. Caution, take a look at this car from
Extreme Free Ride as the effect that the car gives does not go away. You might
not want to be this way for your Extreme Free Ride Home gamesave. I've been told
the effect can be canceled by kneeling, but I haven't tried it yet.

Sinister Face Cave

There is a sinister face on the cliff next to the railroad tunnel in East
Hoboken. If you get close to it you will notice the mouth opening seems to go
back into the cliff for quite a distance. Being of a curious nature I took a
Bolt Truck and ran backwards at full speed into the raised ground in front of
the face. I then drove the truck under the mouth of the face. By climbing up
the cliff next to the face I was able to jump on the truck and then climb into
the mouth. It has very sharp teeth. A cave continues on behind the face for
quite a distance. There is a small tunnel with timbers that goes off to the
left and down from the cave. It ends at a non-textured door that can't be
opened. The non-textured door can also be seen in the railway tunnel a short
distance from the entrance.


Free Ride Unique Cars

While driving around in Free Ride (city daytime) I've found two unique vehicles.
There is a red Bruno Speedster parked in an alley near the center of Central
Island. There is a Bolt Truck with Atlantic Import markings parked on a loading
dock in the south west corner of the Works Quarter. While not unique there are
some other cars parked at various locations:
Silver Fletcher - By the Lighthouse keeper's house.
Lassiter Appolyon - In the alley south east of the Hotel Corleone
Lassiter V16 Roadster - On top of the parking structure next to the guy who had
the white Celeste exploding car mission.
