1.2 - Introduction

This FAQ was made to help the frequent number of questions about where to
find which car where, and how to find it.  I have gone to the liberty to help
you find the cars to as little extent as possible.  If you find a problem in
this faq or have a better or different way of finding a car feel free to send
me an email.

I'm also surprised on how many people think you can do import/export list or
street races without owning Sunshine Autos, you have to own it to do both of
those things so please stop asking how to find them.

2.1 - What is Sunshine Autos?

Sunshine Autos is a Business in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City which you can
purchase for $50,000 which you need to finish the game.  Sunshine Autos is
a Car Dealership which you can make a total up to $9,000 per day.
Also you can get 4 rare cars which you cant find anywhere else.
This is the best real estate to buy as you pay a low amount to buy it yet you
get the second most daily revenue amount of money for any ownership.

- $500 per car delivered to Import/Export Garage
- $20,000 per Import/Export list completed

2.2 - Where is Sunshine Autos?

Sunshine Autos is located on the second island almost near the bottom,
the easiest way to find it, is to look at your map the came with the game.
Sunshine Autos is located directly east of the airport.
To get there from the main island go to Vice Port and stay on the Main
Highway, once your in Vice Port take your first right, then at the
intersection take another right, to your right there should be a empty
grassy field and right smack dab in the middle is Sunshine Autos.

Also the Import/Export Garage, Pay'n'Go, and the 3 garages are
located behind the main building, take the ramp to reach them.

2.3 - What can you do at Sunshine Autos?

At Sunshine Autos you can do a few different things, which is great for the low
price of the business.  You can:
-Do any of the following 4 Import/Export lists made up of 6 cars per list
-You can illegally street race 6 different circuits to win money
-You can repair/repaint your car
-Store around 6 cars in the 4 garages

2.4 - Basic Information on Finding Cars

There are some basic guidelines on finding these cars,  the cars usally
spawn in there families of similar cars,  like you wouldn't see some a lot
of really poor cars right next to a lot of sport cars, it just doesn't
work that way.  This is why usally when you find a really rare car theres
a lot of them around you.  Occasionally a car will spawn out of its
designated spawning area.  I've seen a semi on the first island once, but
that was once, I've never seen it again.  Some car have a set fixed
location, like it will almost be there a 100% of the time, and if its not
you can take a trip around the block it will be there, you can jack it and
it will come back too, thats the way it works.  Basic cars like Police,
Taxi, and Ambulance will pretty much spawn anywhere, while some cars will
only stay in one area, you should know where to look for cars by the area
you are in.
For example, you should look for a Stallion in a poorer area
because it isn't that nice of a car, or you should look for a Cuban Hermes
around the area where you do the cuban missions, makes sense right?
Another thing is that cars will spawn accordingly to what your driving, if
your driving a motorcycle, you're gonna see a whole lot of motorcycles
near by, this is why it sometimes helps to walk on foot, so you dont get
crazy high numbers of one vechile.  Sometime you should travel in car,
becuase it will be more likely to spawn.
The main thing to use is your common sense, because your never gonna see a
Ferrari go through the ghetto, so why would an Infernus go through the
trailer park?

When you do find a car your looking for take it easy, try not to get any
stars what so ever, and if you do try and get to a police badge or
Pay'n'Go as fast a possible, you don't want a car you've been looking
for, for over an hour to just flip cause you were careless.  Try to
maintain a decent speed, or go off any jumps, remember theres no time
limit so theres no need to rush to get it into the garage.    If you're
too far from either a Pay'n'Go, or a Police Badge and you got 2+ stars,
get to your nearest garage, put it in and save, then reload your game.  If
worst comes to worst and you not even close to a garage, get out of the
car, this is the most dire thing, the chances of the car not being there
when you come back are high, but ive gone all of the island and came back
to the same car I had ditched on the side of the road.  But you wanna
focus on getting out of the car and getting into another one, and making
you way towards a Pay'n'Go, not a garage.  You will want to get there
as soon a possible to avoid all the police vechlies to take up all the
RAM, deleting your rare car.  After you get to the Pay'n'Go, make your
way back to your car and hope to god that its still there.  Why you don't
want to drive to the Pay'n'Go in your rare vechle, they are usally
slower and less duriable than a normal car, so your car would probably get
blown up by the time you start to make your way to the Pay'n'Go.  If
you have a better rare car go for it, but don't go for it if your driving
a golf cart or something.

There is a sentienel usally inside Sunshine Autos use it to get to different
locations to find your car, as you earn more cars for your showroom you can use
them to get to an area to find a car.

Use the fixed locations part to make this as quick and easy as possible, some
cars don't have any at all, if you have one that I don't have email me it
please.  Also if I have a incorrect fixed location, email me that too.  Fixed
Locations usally have a spawn point for a certain car, sometimes its just one
car that will spawn there, sometimes its a few different cars, its varies.  One
also thing to note is that the cars will always not be there, if there not just
drive around, go inside buildings, or do a mission, then come back and check if
it's there, if it's still not there just repeat till it apears.

3.1 - First List (Lower-class list)

INFO:  This is probably one of the hardest list you will have to do,
 but some of the cars can be found fast, other are harder.

CARS:  All of these cars are lower to middle class cars

Location:  Usally found in the areas of Downtown and Northpoint, also sometimes
found in Vice Point.

Fixed Locations:

- Dirtbike Track(Downtown)
Get to the stadium and keep on the road closest to the stadium and start
heading north, right after the bend you should see a dirt road heading north,
follow this road around till you reach a Dirt Track, you'll know when your
there because of the hills and what not, towards the the east of the track
there's a Landstalker and a Sanchez, get in the Landstalker, a mission will
start up but ignore it, just drive away and back to Sunshine Autos to deliver
the car.

- Starfish Island: Northwest House
Comming out of Diaz's Estate, take a left, you should be heading west, as you
come towards the next T-Intersection take a right, you should be heading north,
then at the next intersection take a left, hold down R2 and stay on the road
till you see an open gate, then go into the lot and steal the car and drive it


Usally in the area of Little Haiti, Little Havana, and Downtown.  I often find
it right outside of the hospital in Little Havana right after I die.

- FBI Method
Get full armor and health, and get near a pay'n'go, get four stars and stay
there till the police comes, you should see some Black Ranchers pull up, kill
the FBI agents or just steal the SUV, then drive it into the Pay'n'Go, then
drive around till you find a normal Rancher, don't take the FBI rancher to
Sunshine Autos, they wont accept it.

Blista Compact-

The car is usally found in Washington beach, Little Havana, Ocean Beach, and
pretty much everywhere, I've had the best luck finding this car on foot.

longest time then show up in groups of them.

CARS:  All these cars are middle class cars like sedans, the only exception is
the limo.

Here are the secret cars you only find at the showroom, you can find them in
certain mission or places, but they will always be here.
The first two cars are located on the main floor, the last two are located on
the second floor.

To get the cars out, try shooting out the glass first then driving out,
especially when taking one of the cars on the second level, if you don't go
fast enough, the car will flip, so get some speed so you can land the drop,
even if you did damage your car bad there's a Pay'n'Go near.

Import/Export list.

5.1 - Street Racing

Found right next to the Import/Export Garage is the Street Racing entry
map, you'll see it due to the pink maker which you need to step on to
enter the races.  There are six circuits each harder than the other one
and requiring more money.  All the races require an entry fee to join,
then you go to the starting location and begin the race.  The thing is
that, say if you enter a race were the entry fee is $1,000 you will put it
in a pot with the other racers, so it means that they all put in the same
amount.  For example, with that $1,000 entry there is four people per
race, three computers, and you, if you won you would collect $4,000
because everyone chipped in a $1,000 leading to you getting a profit of
$3,000.  If you still don't understand it, just read the profit margin
on the circuits section.(5.2)

Interesting Find - At the top of the map for selecting your race, it says,"Earn
Cash, not Kudos", this is obviously a joke directed towards MSR(Dreamcast), or
Project Gotham Racing(Xbox), where you have to race for style points, also know
as kudos.

5.3 - Tips
5.3.0 - General tips
Here are some tips for specific circuits or in general:

General Tips:

- When approting the marked starting location, get a good distance behind your
oppenents and get to a good speed, then drive right next to your oppenent and
tap him with the side of your car, the race starts if you hit another car, and
if your already at top speed and there still acclerating you can get a good
head start
- Try to cut corners to get in front of your oppenents
- Try to get to know the track, the better you know the area, the easier it
will be
- I can't stress this enough, but watch for incoming traffic, one bad collision
could lose you the race and your money.
- This ones pretty obvious but get a fast car, you'll want acceleration over
top speed on some races, and vice-versa on other races.
- Always use a fast car, here are the three fastest cars in the game:
Hotring Racer
- Overall I usally pick the cheetah since its fast and has good acceleration,
though you should pick which car you most confortable with
- If you need more info on cars, see RedjackeTs "Car Database"
- Never use a motorcycle in a street race, you may think their better due to
there small size, but infact you'll probably get knocked off
your bike from the other wreckless oppenents, or you'll hit a wall or crash
into a car.  Sticking to a car is best for street racing.

Some people would consider this cheating and wouldn't want to do this but if
you like finding shortcuts in games this is one of them.

Chris616263 informed me of this on AOL.

Use the bazooka you find on the way to sunshine autos, and blow up all the cars
before the race starts! In fact, if you hit the right car, all three blow up,
and you can take as much time as you want.

I'll tell ya how to blow up the cars right, too. ya know how they're liked up


You hit the middle one, I underlined it.

    CAR CAR <------ Hit the car on the right

Then the other 2 get blown up by the blast, hehe.

To find the Rocket Launcher get 70 Hidden Packages or there is one just south
of Sunshine Autos.  Head south from Sunshine Autos and take a right at the
intersection, you should be heading west, on your left you should see a Hotel
with a road going through it, follow this road and inside the swimming pool is
a Rocket Launcher, beware, don't drive your car into the pool, you won't be
able to get it out again.

Then take the Rocket Launcher and start the race, blow up the cars shown above,
then take all the time you want to finish up the race.

Here's a tip from TeamXUSA@aol.com:

My advice on how to beat the SunShine auto races easily, without having to
actually out perform the other drivers:

First of all, it's not illegal to destroy the other racers vechiles once they
have started the race. With this in mind, to win the races easily, simply get a
tank by collecting 90 hidden packages, using a gameshark, or entering the in
game code (Rhino: Cirlce, Circle, L1, Circle (3x), L1, L2, R1, Triangle,
CIrcle, Triangle), and head to the starting line on a 45 degree angle or so
that will run over all the cars quickly, but have the tanks shaft pointed ahead
where the races will be heading (to hit anyone that you might not get right
away with your tank treds), then when the race starts, pull forward quickly
taking out all the racer cars with your tank treds which instantly explodes all
cars that touch them, and fire the tanks cannon or whatever at any cars that
still manage to pull away, but if a car by chance still manages to excape your
attack, they will probably have taken to much damage (in all the near by
explosions) to finish the race in one peice, but for the perfectionists, you
can wait back awhile at the finish line to kill them (with the tank cannon) as
they come in for the win if they even survive the race that long. Then jump in
a smaller faster car to finish the race at your leisure since you are now the
only racer left. See how easy it can be. This is a quick way to $40,000 also if
you need money fast, just do this when ever on the last race.

5.3.5 - Circuit Tips
I need tips for this section, if you have any contact me please.

Race #1

- This circuit is in a small area with lots of turns and lots of traffic, I
recommend using a cheetah or a Hotring Racer if you have one.
- Apparently if you have a motorbike you can ride the walls around the
underground roads, this can give you a nice lead.
Race #6

- You can make some really easy money on this race, if you win you can get
$40,000 in a couple minutes.(credit - CoMPuTer MAsSteR)
- Make sure you get a good lead ahead of the oppenents, since the track mainly
sticks to the highways, theres lots of room for passing and putting your
oppenents off course.
- You'll want a car with a really high top speed since most of this course is

If you have any tips, email me please.

6.1 - Garages

There are four garages at Sunshine Autos that can hold around 8 cars.  This
isn't the most conveinant place for them, but they work well.


You can fit almost double the amount of cars in each garage if you keep the
door open by walking up to it while out of your car, wait till its fully open
and then get in the car and drive in fast.

This method was posted by "MisticalPoet" :
If you pull one all the way up to the door, then get out and let it open and
run around behind your car and push in forward, it will block the door, then
just get in and drive it in

What to do if your car gets eatten?

I have looked into this as it has happen to me, even when not going over the
max limit, this usally happens in certain garages, mainly the Hyman Condo Ones,
and the Starfish Island ones,  you come to your garage and what!!??? The cars
missing!!!  Your car could be gone for good, but try saving it first at least.
Sometimes one car will be gone but the other will still remain, or there both
gone or just one of thems gone, first thing go around the islands and load up
as much stuff as possible then come back, if there still not there, reload your
game, I did this and it seems to work every time, sometime I would have to
reload it 3 or 4 times before it would come back, but it did in the end.  So
try that.  If anyone has a better method of getting your cars back, contact me

6.2 - Pay'n'Go

The Pay'n'Go here is pretty useless here since it is kinda off the road, but
it does all the same things as the other Pay'n'Gos,  if you want to make all
your cars a certain color or just see what different colors there are this is
the place, It is the only one which can fit a helicopter in also, but when i
got mine in, it caught on fire and exploded so I'm not sure if you can change
the color or repair it.
Also after some dicussion, the Pay'n'Go at Sunshine Autos isn't free even when
you own it, it stills costs $100 to get the whole car repaired.  Though I have
found out that if your car is not damaged one bit you can go back in and get
the color changed for free, so if your looking for a paticular color it doesn't
really cost anything.

Interesting Find-
"Ravenhunter" pointed this out to me,
he got the helicopter into the Pay'n'Go at Sunshine Autos, he claims it
repaired his helicopter and changed the color, he also said that his helicopter
got car wheels on it, aparently they have no function but he says they work as
shocks for landing the helicopter.

"Gwommy" took a picture of this interesting find and let me link it, here it
