Import/Export Garage and EV Crane FAQ by INoble
GTA3 Import/Export Garage and EV Crane FAQ Posted by Iain Noble (firstname.lastname@example.org) Additions and corrections welcome. Stupid questions ignored. Many of the messages posted on the GTA3 board at http://www.gamefaqs.com are about the location of the two import/export garages, what cars are required by them and how to obtain them. This very short FAQ attempts to answer these questions. You are told about these garages and the EV crane on your pager at certain points in the game but you can start depositing vehicles there at any time. There are 2 import/export garages. One is located in Portland at the Docks. Drive through the main dock gates and go to the end. Turn left and then left again. The garage is on your right in a building with large two toned blue doors. There is a list of the vehicles required on the wall immediately to the left of the door. The list is as follows: 1 Securicar 1 Moonbeam 1 Coach 1 Flatbed 1 Linerunner 1 Trashmaster 1 Patriot 1 Mr. Whoopee 1 Blista 1 Mule 1 Yankee 1 Bobcat 1 Dodo 1 Bus 1 Rumpo 1 Pony As you deliver each car you get $15,000 and it is ticked off the list. If you deliver them all you will get: $200,000.00 and 16 GTA pickups, allowing you to get a vehicle of your choice for free. Read the descriptions of the cars in the FAQ/Walkthough files at http://www.gamefaqs.com Remember that if you need a particular type of vehicle, if you drive a vehicle of the same 'class' - sports car, van, lorry etc. then other vehicles in the same 'class' are much more likely to appear on the streets. Some of the vehicles required will not appear until later in the game when you get access to the other islands. The vehicles that seem to cause the most problems are: 1. The Mr. Whoopee Ice Cream Truck. If you start the firefighting missions in Portland, then one of the burning vehicles you encounter is an ice cream van. Extinguish the flames and drive it to the garage. 2. The Securicar. When you are on Staunton Island, one of Donald Love's missions (Decoy) has you driving a securicar. After the mission is over drive the securicar to the garage. 3. The Dodo. This is a small aircraft with cut-off wings and it can be found at the airport on Shoreside. Despite many postings about how to fly this plane, your best bet is to drive it back to the garage using the bridges. The second import/export garage is located in Shoreside. There is no garage in Staunton. It's in the northeast corner of the section with the Hospital and the Police Station. You can get 'wasted' to get to the Hospital or 'busted' to get to the Police Station or you can check your map and go there, check the list next to the garage and get these cars. The garage will not open for a car that is not on the list or has already been collected. 1 Sentinel 1 Cheetah 1 Banshee 1 Stinger 1 Infernus 1 Esperanto 1 Kuruma 1 Stretch 1 Perennial 1 Landstalker 1 Manana 1 Idaho 1 Stallion 1 Taxi 1 Cabbie 1 BF Injection Collect them all and you will get: $200,000.00 and 16 GTA pickups, allowing you to get a vehicle of your choice for free. The BF injection is a sort of beach buggy that you can fnd next to Misty's apartment block on Portland in the evenings once you have finished the missions for the Mafia on that island. In Portland docks there is also an EV crane that will accept various emergency vehicles for cash. Once again go through the main dock gates and along to the end. Turn left and then bear right to see an area of ground marked with diagonal stripes. Park the vehicle in this area and get out so that the crane can pick up the vehicle and load it onto the ship. There is no list posted of the vehicles required so here they are: 1 Police Car 1 Ambulance 1 Fire Truck 1 Barracks OL 1 FBI Car 1 Enforcer 1 Tank (Rhino) You will get the following: $1500.00 per vehicle, as well as a bonus of $200,000.00 for all the vehicles, and seven GTA pick-ups, allowing you to order the vehicle of your choice (out of the emergency vehicles) from the crane. You will find the police car, ambulance and fire truck at the police station, hospital or fire station on any island. The barracks OL is at the army surplus base on Staunton island. Good luck getting an FBI car as you have to have a very high wanted level before they appear! The enforcer can be found in the police station yard on Staunton island. The tank only becomes available after you finish the final mission on Shoreside. If you go to the army surplus base afte this mission the tank there is unlocked. Otherwise you need to have the highest wanted level to hijack a tank. Read the Rhino Tank FAQ at http://www.gamefaqs.com for more help here.
