The Glendale is a four-door sedan featured in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories.

Description

Design

Designed as a 1950s/1960s sedan, the Glendale appears to be the result of joining two halves of two different real-life cars; the front resembles a 1955 Buick Special while the back and sides (including the roof) resemble a 1961 Dodge Polara. While commonly featuring a two tone paint scheme (the roof being white), a Glendale in GTA San Andreas has a color variation that is totally red though. The roof color can also be modified in GTA San Andreas via TransFender.

Along with the Broadway, Hustler, Tornado, and the Voodoo, the Glendale in GTA San Andreas does not appear to have fuel caps but will explode if shot on the back license plate, perhaps indicating that the car's fuel cap is behind the license plate like some cars in real-life.

Performance

In terms of performance, the car is only average, with an average top speed, mediocre acceleration, moderate endurance and average cornering. The vehicle's power-to-weight ratio may be a contributing factor to its below-average acceleration, as the car is heavy but posses a weak engine, and as a result, is also a poor hill climber.

Prominent uses

The Glendale is a common gang car, predominantly in GTA San Andreas (the Varrios Los Aztecas); where it is common to see this car and its occupants taking part in a drive-by shooting. In addition, Big Smoke drives a Glendale with a blue body and a white roof, which plays a small role in several missions (mostly as transportation from his home to the mission location).

Variants

"Beater" Glendale

The beater variant of the Glendale in GTA San Andreas, with damaged body parts and a different wheel design.

The "Ghost" Glendale (internally named the "GLENSHIT") is a GTA San Andreas variation of the Glendale which features damaged body parts and a different wheel design. Similar to the beater Sadler, the internal workings of the car are actually normal, but features body damage that cannot be repaired at a spray shop beyond the state when it spawned; other aspects of the car, including the engine, tires, windscreen and headlights, can be repaired otherwise. GLENSHIT Glendales commonly spawn in isolated parts of San Andreas, especially between the two horseshoe shaped rocks in Back o' Beyond, presumably as a last-measure mode of transportation if the player loses a vehicle in the middle of nowhere.

The "GLENSHIT" is central to the "ghost car" myth.

Bloodring Banger

The Bloodring Banger featured in GTA Vice City and GTA San Andreas adapts the Glendale into a demolition derby car outfitted with various modifications for such competitions. While the Glendale is one of two models the Bloodring Banger is based on in GTA Vice City (alongside the Oceanic), only the Glendale-based Bloodring Banger remains in GTA San Andreas.
