     Hi, thanks for reading this far, but before you start to read the real FAQ, 
    can I just say a few things, this FAQ, is meant to be helpful, so if you find 
    it unhelpful, please let me know. The reason for writing a FAQ for a game that
    is several years old, is that since the launch of "Grand Theft Auto 3" on the 
    Playstation 2, there has been a slight if not noticeable revival in peoples 
    interest in the original game, "Grand Theft Auto," also this game doe's not 
    have a In-Depth FAQ for this area - an important area as the title suggests.

    -------------------[ 2.2 - Vehicle Information/Discription ]------------------
    
     The following are in-depth, more detailed sections on the different vehicles
    in GTA. You can see I did'nt bother adding a profile for the two types of
    squad cars, buses etc., they are quite similier other than value so there 
    was'nt a need to. Also I hav'nt bothered giving the tank a profile because its
    main features are too obvious.
    
    Speed: - means how fast a vehicle can go. 
    Damage: - means how easy a vehicle is to damage.
    Driveability: - means how easy a vehicle is to steer/drive/use.
    Usual Colour: - means the typical colour of a vehicle
    Availablity: - means how easy a vehicle is to find; how common it is.
    Info: - Just a bit about the car
    
    -=29 Special=- 
    
    Speed: 97% - Almost as fast as the squad car.

                  while if kept away from fire, water and baozokas!
    Driveability: 98% - Incredable for such a fast car, it will turn just like 
                        that, great for skids.

    -=Ambulance=-
    
    Speed: 38% - Slow despite being an emergency vehicle.
    Damage: 96% - A strong, well beaten ambulance is as  good as any real car any
                  day.
    Driveability: 75% - Watch out for the odd corner, but don't lose sleep over 
                        it.
