Famous Cars In Grand Theft Auto 5 (GTA 5/Online)


Looking for something new to do in GTA 5? How about tv/movie car collecting? Believe it or not without modding you can find some really cool on screen cars in GTA 5 and GTA 5 Online. Amazing how even the cars themselves are named in relation to what tv/movie car they go with. Often video game companies have not paid for the licencing to use the official names. For example the 69' Dodge Charger is called Dukes. Very obvious what they were thinking there. But this car could easily be painted/skinned and configured to look like a 68' Charger from Fast and the Furious. Just use your imagination and the sky is limitless. There's been a ton of videos (one below) on this. But I thought I would show some of highlights and give you some links for more information. Happy collecting!

Battle of the Roadmasters


Recently on Jay Leno's Garage, Jay and Dax Shepard pit two classic Buick Roadmasters head to head. Setting the stage at Irwindale Drag Strip in sunny southern California. The two set out to see who has the baddest Roadmaster. In one corner, Jay's 1955 Buick Roadmaster, rocking a 572 Cubic Inch V8 Chevrolet Big Block crate. While in the other corner, Dax's 1994 Buick Roadmaster Wagon with a 700+ horse LSA Smallblock performance crate motor. Folks this could be a close one. Crate motor vs crate motor, Buick vs Buick. How did it end? Well you'll just have to see for yourself in the clip below. Till then let's talk about the cars.

Jay's 1955 Buick Roadmaster has made it's rounds on various car shows over the years. Below you can see the My Classic Car guy, Dennis Gage giving it the work over. From my research, Jay bought the car in 1973 for $350. Shortly after he first moved to LA. What a steal! The car was originally black and white. He later switch the white out with silver. Jay and his wife had their first date in the car. He even drove to his first television appearances in this car. He nick named the car "Rosebud." For over 16 years the car sat in his mother-in-law's driveway. Sometime around 2002 Jay decided to do an all out restoration. The front and rear suspension completely replaced with a C5/C4 Corvette suspension (front/back). Gone is the Buick Nailhead V8 and replaced with a 572 cubic inch Big Block GM Crate motor pushing over 600 horsepower. This thing is a monster. Stock in appearance, but anything but stock. Custom aluminum wheels with stock looking covers. Amazing work.

Dax's 1994 Buick Roadmaster wagon more than likely began it's life as a family hauler. Today it's still serving the purpose. Dax bought the car soon after he found he's was going to be a dad. He wasn't ready for the minivan. I can't say I could ever picture him behind the wheel of one. This Roadmaster is also special to Dax. He went on to say he often got to drive this model during his first job. Personally, I think they're one of the most underrated cars of the 90's. Originally these cars would have had a LT1 V8 plant. Dax did away with that, replacing it with a GM Performance LSA crate motor. Putting 700+ horse power at demand. If that doesn't get the groceries home, I don't know what will. Car has a laundry list of add-ons from rollcage to BBS Wheels. Again, nearly stock in appearance, but not stock in performance.

Show time! Specs wise it's a close match. You might be surprised.

What I find amazing about these two cars. Their owners have the means to buy pretty much any vehicle. But they prize these cars the most. They take pride in showing them off. They have memories and sentimental value. That's what makes classic cars special. Till next time, keep on haul'n.

Holy Smokes Batman, It's The Original Bat Cave!


Batcave. Batcave. Batcaveee. Ever wonder where the site of the original Batcave is? I came across a video by Youtuber: Spa Guy that solves that riddle. According to the video the cave is located in Hollywood California, not far form the famous sign overlooking the city. Not a big surprise given most of the show was shot in the Hollywood area. After doing some research, I've discovered the cave is actually a man made tunnel. The Bronson Cave tunnel as it's refereed to now was dug by the Union Rock Company in the early 1900s. Despite it's appearance on screen, it's only about 50ft long and barely wide enough for a car. Clever use of props and camera angles gave viewers the illusion the cave was much bigger than it is. Looking at some of the pictures now. It's hard to imagine that the big honking Ford Futura made it through! I would have been a nervous George Barris, watching my creation squeeze it's way out. If you would like more information on how to get to the cave or the park check out Hikespeak. Sounds like a fun hike and adventure. See you next time, same bat channel, same bat time!
