In GTA 2, the showroom appears in the Residential District and offers a side quest, which requires the player to find eight GT-A1 cars. Upon entering the cars, the player will respawn at the showroom. Completing the side quest unlocks an Armed Land Roamer, a Fire Truck with a flamethrower, instead of a water cannon, three Furore GT with either a machine gun, oil slick, or vehicle mine, and a Special Agent Car with a machine gun. These vehicles will spawn in the parking lot.

GTA San Andreas

In GTA San Andreas, the showroom is located in Downtown San Fierro, San Andreas. It is just up the street from Carl Johnson's Doherty Garage. Randomly spawning cars are parked in the street-side outdoor lot that the player may access. The showroom is available for purchase after completing the mission Back to School. After purchase, missions for the showroom will appear at the Doherty garage. Completion of the missions will reward the player with new vehicle spawns in the showroom and the business as an asset will generate a maximum of $8,000 per pick-up.

Events of GTA San Andreas

When he arrives in San Fierro, Carl Johnson realizes he has been tricked into accepting an abandoned garage in the industrial neighborhood of Doherty as his prize for beating Claude and Catalina in a street race. But before he can slip into self-pity, his sister Kendl and his closest ally from Los Santos, Cesar Vialpando, urge Carl to turn the garage into a successful chop-shop. Carl's new friend, The Truth, mentions a few local friends of his, Dwaine, Jethro, and Zero, that would be willing to work in the garage, and the two men set off to locate them.

Later, as Carl's new business is expanding, he decides that setting up a legitimate front in San Fierro would offset the illegal activities of the Doherty garage. The perfect opportunity is just up the street from the garage: the Wang Cars dealership in Downtown. Carl and Cesar set off to steal cars to put on display in the showroom in order to maintain the appearance of legitimacy. After populating the showroom's floors, Carl then begins a lucrative automobile import/export exchange at the nearby Easter Basin docks. With all of his automotive "businesses" in place, Carl begins to rake in the profits, thereby establishing himself as an entrepreneurial force in San Fierro.

Trivia

  • The name "Wang Cars," if spoken fast, will become "Wankers". This is one of many sexual references Rockstar places in the Grand Theft Auto games.
  • In GTA San Andreas, after completing the mission Customs Fast Track, which involves stealing a Jester from East basin import ship, the showroom will spawn a Savanna instead of a Jester.
