Hey, and welcome to my third FAQ for Gamefaqs! This time, it's for, possibly
one of the biggest games to hit the gaming generation, Grand Theft Auto: San
Andreas. This guide is for Importing, and Exporting cars at the Easter Basin
docks after finishing all of your Garage missions in San Fierro. It will
include the Basic Exporting and Importing lists, where to find the cars,
how to export & import and much more. You will need to finish the mission
'Customs Fast Track' to open Importing and Exporting, so I have included
a small walkthrough of that mission. Good luck, and have fun!

Q: How do I unlock Importing and Exporting?
A: You must finish Driving school. Jethro gives you a call about Wang Cars
   coming up for sale. Purchase it for $50,000. You will now do some more
   missions for the garage, that includes stealing cars. Finish the mission:
   Customs fast track, and you will unlock Exporting & Importing.

Q: What do I get from Exporting?
A: Money. Lots of money. If you find an Infernus, it sells for $95,000. Plus,
   you can Import rare cars, such as the Monster truck, Banditos, Turismos, 
   etc.

Q: How do I know if I can Export a certain car?
A: If you can Export the car, when you enter it, you get a message saying
   'This car can be Exported over at the Easter Basin docks.'

Q: How do I use the Crane?
A: Go into the Red Marker and press Triangle. Square raises the Magnet, X
   lowers it. Circle releases the car. The left analog stick moves the Crane.

Q: How do I Import?
A: Go to the Chalk board, and press Triangle. Go to the day that you are on,
   and press X. It will then show a list of cars available for Importing on
   that day. 

Q: How do I claim my rewards?
A: As soon as you put the car in the red marker, they will give you the money.

Q: I can't use this darn crane! Can I move cars another way?
A: Sure. You can drive up and down the ramp that is on the ship, but be
   careful, the ramp can sometimes be hard to get about on.

Q: Where is ---- car?
A: Check the Vehicle location section. It has the locations for 95% of the
   cars you need. (I'm still looking for a couple).

Q: Is Importing & Exporting required for 100%?
A: Yep. You need to finish all 3 lists to get a shot at 100%.

Q: Do I need to complete Exporting and Importing mission strand to finish the
   storyline?
A: Nope, you can still complete the story without it, but you do get a nice
   amount of cash to help you along in the later parts of the game.

Q: Where is the chalk board that has the cars for Exporting and Importing?
A: It's by the crane, close to the water. Can't miss it.

You'll need to complete this mission to unlock Importing & Exporting, so here
is a small guide on how to get through this mission.


Carl and Kendl talk about Sweet's situation, while Cesar gets a hint about
a car at the docks that is in a crate. The annonymous man says that he has
marked the crate with some paint. 


When you're in Cesar's lowrider, they discuss on who's doing what. Cesar is
afraid of heights, so you'll have to operate the Crane, while he checks the
Crates for the Car. When you reach the yellow blip on your map(Go down the
train tracks), enter the Crane. 

You find out that there is no marked crate, so you decide to search them all.
Use the Square button to raise the magnet, and X to lower it, and the left
analog stick to move the Crane about. Once you have a crate, move it off
the ship, and put it on the floor. Don't just drop it from high up though,
as it will explode, thus causing the mission failed. Once you find the
right crate, Cesar gets in the car, but some men drive up and ambush you.

Exit the Crane, and fill the three men with bullets. A few more guys arive
at the scene, destroy these fools aswell. Now another 2 guys run up, kill
them, and you're done. Drive back to the garage, and voila! Collect your
$10,000 and start exporting some cars!

Here is a few descriptions of the cars you can Import:


Monster - Huge 4 wheel off-road truck. Durable and can bowl over most cars.
          My personal favourite car.

Windsor - Fast Sports car, but handles like a brick. Feels heavy when driving,
          and has bad handling. Not recommended.

Bandito - Off-road Dune buggy. Fast, and handles pretty well. Can't endure
          much damage though. Fun car to drive.

Turismo - One of the, if not the fastest car in the game. Has a big spoiler
          on the back, and has a long front. 2 doors.

Vortex - Our good old Hovercraft. Drives on land, flows through sea, and
         flies through the air. Has a big fan on the back.

Bullet - Most likely the fastest car in the game. Has a huge stripe down
         its front that runs down to the back. Has a very low ground
         clearance, so it doesn't tip over easily. Very fast.

the State of San Andreas, here is a list of the Locations of the cars you'll
need to Export.

______
Patriot - Usually spawns at the Easter bay chemicals parking lot in San
          Fierro. Also in Area 69, watch for the instant 5 star wanted level,
          though. Easier if you have the Airstrip to park it in the garage
          and save.

Sanchez - On the farm, a little West of Leafy Hollow, also can be acquired
          in the mission 'Explosive situation' for the casino. The Sanchez
          is always parked at the Quarry after that mission, too.

Stretch - A lot are seen driving around Hashbury, can also be found behind
          Wang Cars in Doherty.

Feltzer - Start a Valet mission, most of the cars are Feltzers, also can
          be acquired in the mission 'Fender Ketchup' for the Casino, kill
          the guy on the hood to get Mission failed, then take the car.

Remington - By Unity station, in Los Santos.

Buffalo - Fern ridge, next to Catalina's cabin.


Sentinel(Listed) - 

1. Movie studio parking lot in Vinewood, Los Santos. Doors can be locked
   sometimes, so blow it up, go around the block, and it should be 
   unlocked. 

2. Can also be seen driving around the studio aswell, if you can't find
   the parked one. 

3. May also be found at Jizzy's Pleasure Domes club, in San Fierro.

4. Usually spawns around Roca Escalante in Las Venturas by the VRock hotel.

5. Can be found in the Underground Car Park, in Financial in San Fierro,
   where you do the Valet missions.

6. Seen driving around in Commerce in Los Santos, no matter what car you drive.

_______
List 2
_______

                 also found cruising around in Cranberry Station, Doherty.
                 Spawns at Wang Cars after the mssion 'Zeroing in'.

Stafford - In Queens, parked by the $50,000

Sabre - These are everywhere. Wait on the roads, just outside of the Exporting
        place. You will find one easily.

FCR 900 - Just above Greenglass college in Las Venturas, Parked with another
          lot of vehicles. Also spawns by the driving school if you get at
          least all silvers at the Bike school.

Cheetah - Leftmost of Prickle Pine, by a House.

Rancher - Usually parked by the Lil' Probe inn, just North of Fort Carson.

Stallion - Juniper Hill, North of where you find the Stafford.

Tanker - These are all over the countryside & the desert. Just cruise 
         around, and you'll find one.

Comet - West of the Avispa country club. There is a window shaped, yellow
        building on your map. It should be around there.


______
List 3
______
Blade - Same as the Sabre. They're found all around San Fierro.

Freeway - Hashbury, parked by the curvey road.

Mesa - At the Base of Mount Chiliad, if you finish the 'Chiliad Challenge' on
       the Mountain Bike at the top of the Mountain, the Mesa is next to the
       finish point.

ZR 350 - Parked a little North of Caligula's Casino in Las Venturas.

Euros - Under the Sphinx's head at the Camel's toe in Las Venturas.

Banshee - Parked right next to the Dojo's gym .

Super GT - Get at least all Bronze in the Driving school, and it will be parked
           outside. You will need to get at least all Bronze to unlock
           Inporting and Exporting anyway. Can also be found if you hop
           the fence into an airport, and drive the baggage truck, the
           Super GT may appear.

Journey - On the top of Mount Chiliad. Also in the movie studio in Vinewood,
          LS. Not closer, but probably easier to get if you hate Mt. Chiliad.

Huntley - Appears at the driving school sometimes instead of the Hotknife if
          you get Gold in all driving school tests. Can sometimes spawn
          there if you get all Silver, and if you complete the first Export
          list. Also seen driving around in Prickle Pine.

BF Injection - On the Beach, near the Avispa Country Club. Also in the eastern
               corner of Santa Maria Beach in Los Santos, by the gym equipment.
               If it does not appear, just circle the block until it does.


As you can see, it takes quite a trip to get all of the cars, but it is worth
it. You get a $215,000 bonus for completing the lists!

Here is a small tips section to help you get the most out of Exporting your
cars...

(Thanks to Stuart for the following 4 tips:)
-If you're moving cars a long distance, it's worth driving them on the train
 tracks. The tracks lead straight to the docks, there's rarely a train on
 them, so you stand far more chance of getting the car there damage free.

-If your car is damaged by the time you get to the docks, stick it in one of
 your garages, or get it to a Pay n' spray. The car will be as good as new,
 and you will get the right amount of money.

-If you ever find a car while playing the game that's on a future list(list 3
 while you're only doing list 1) stick it in a garage for later. It could
 save you loads of time and money.

-There are 16 different classes of vehicle in the game, including aircrafts,
 bikes, and boats. If you're driving a vehicle from one class, it increases
 the chance of other vehicles in that class spawning. You'll notice that if
 you drive a 'rare' car all the way from Los Santos to the docks, you'll
 see 3 of them lined up at a traffic light in Doherty. So, if you're after a
 Tanker, drive anything like a tanker, such as a Linerunner, or if you want
 a Huntley, try driving a Rancher or Landstalker. The spawning of cars is
 also area based. You'refar more likely to see an expensive sports car driving
 through Rodeo than Ganton.

(Thanks to Pogo for the following 2 tips:)
-Tankers, Freeways, Journeys, Sanchez, and Ranchers can all be found cruising
 around the Countryside.

-Stallions, Feltzers, Remingtons, Sabres, and Stretchs can mostly be found
 driving around the Easter Basin in Doherty, San Fierro.

-Some Garages eat cars, especially the San Fierro garage that you start San
 Fierro with. Try not to stuff garages full with cars (4 or more) or you
 run a high risk of one of them dissappearing. There have also been reports
 of custom paintjobs being deleted, and replaced by plain white paint. I
 can confirm this through my Stratum's paintjob being deleted(Grr). If
 this is about to happen, your garage may lock, and will not let you in
 for a while. Try not to put 2 or more cars with custom paintjobs in the
 same garage to prevent this.
