Designed as a [[1950]]s/[[1960]]s sedan, the Glendale appears to be the result of joining two halves of two different real-life cars; the front resembles a [[wp:Buick Special|1955 Buick Special]], with the headlights and roof from a [[wp:Chevrolet Bel Air|1957 Chevrolet Bel Air]], while the back and sides resemble a [[wp:Dodge Polara|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]].
   
== Description ==
+
Along with the [[Broadway]], [[Hustler]], [[Savanna]], [[Tornado]], and the [[Voodoo]], the Glendale in GTA San Andreas doesn't 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.

===[[HD Universe]]===
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.

The Glendale was re-introduced in the [[I'm Not a Hipster Update]] for GTA V. The Glendale is now based on the [[wp:Mercedes-Benz W123|Mercedes-Benz W123]] (most likely the 280D, as the car has a diesel engine) with front fascia cues from the older [[wp:Mercedes-Benz W114|W114]] and a very similar design of the rear and the taillights like the full-size [[wp:Mercedes-Benz W108|Mercedes-Benz W108/109]]. With these design cues, it is probably the bulkier cousin of the [[3D Universe|GTA III-era]]'s [[Admiral]], which is based on the smaller [[wp:Mercedes-Benz W201|Mercedes-Benz 190 series]]. It also takes design cues, mostly at the rear fascia and taillight cluster, from the [http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-8CzCeRyYEBA/TViZZh5aYSI/AAAAAAAAGIc/sdFEb-onDPk/s1600/1973%2BBMW%2BBavaria%2BSedan.%2B-%2B2.jpg BMW E3 3.0Si/Bavaria].

=== Prominent uses ===
+
===HD Universe===
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).
+
[[File:Glendale-Benefactor-engine-front-gtav.jpg|thumb|Engine close up in GTA V.]]
  +
The Glendale is powered by a high-revving, diesel V6 coupled with a FR layout. The Glendale is a heavy car; The weight plus a soft suspension and the somewhat weak engine means the car understeers through corners despite heavy throttle work, often resulting in spin-outs due to its terrible handling. Poor weight distribution and body roll may result in the vehicle losing control easily, especially at high speeds. The car's acceleration is above average for the majority of the sedan class, but is still mediocre to other car classes in general. Despite these shortcomings, the Glendale has a good top speed which barely touches 200 mph, which is surprising for a vehicle of its age and class. Durability is average for most sedans, as the car can only take a few head-on collisions before its engine fails.

The "Beater" Glendale (internally named the "GLENSHIT") is a GTA San Andreas variation of the Glendale in which the car is damaged, cannot be fixed (you can fix the tires if you shoot them out), and cannot be modified. The "beater" variant has also different wheels and slightly different interior compared to normal Glendale. They have been seen spawning in several places in San Andreas, especially between the two horseshoe shaped rocks in [[Back o' Beyond]].

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.

The [[Bloodring Banger]] featured in [[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City|GTA Vice City]] and [[Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas|GTA San Andreas]] adapts the Glendale into a demolition derby car outfitted with various modifications for such competitions, such as metal bars on the exterior, for protection, and a much more capable engine. 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.

==Trivia==
+
===[[Grand Theft Auto V]]===
*The Glendale plays the following radio stations by default when entered:
+
Categories skipped/ignored: Lights, Horn, Plate, Respray, Wheels, Turbo. Stock options(i.e.: no spoiler) are not listed.
** [[Radio Los Santos]] in the standard Glendale in GTA San Andreas.
 
** [[Playback FM]] in the beater Glendale in GTA San Andreas.
 
* The Glendale could have a link to the city of Glendale, Arizona.
 
* The Beater Glendale is nicknamed the Ghost Car, due to the spawn point of several Glendales on the slope of a hill in [[Back o Beyond]]. The Beaters roll down the hill as soon as the player gets within spawning distance of them, making it appear as if they were driving by themselves.
 
* The Glendale bears a striking resemblance to the car driven by Harry and Ron in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, especially when made to fly using the cheat. Additionally, the Beater variant resembles the car later in the series after it spends some time in the Forbidden Forest.

==Trivia==
  +
===General===
  +
*[[wp:Glendale, California|Glendale]] is a city in the [[wp:Los Angeles County|Los Angeles County]].
  +
===3D Universe===
  +
*The Glendale plays the following radio stations by default when entered:
  +
**[[Radio Los Santos]] in the standard Glendale in GTA San Andreas.
  +
**[[Playback FM]] in the beater Glendale or stolen from the Aztecas in GTA San Andreas.
  +
**[[WorldWide FM]] in GTA V.
  +
*[[Big Smoke]]'s Glendale plays the radio station [[Bounce FM]] instead of [[Radio Los Santos]] when entered.
  +
*The Beater Glendale is nicknamed the Ghost Car, due to the spawn point of several Glendales on the slope of a hill in [[Back o Beyond|Back'o'Beyond]]. The Beaters roll down the hill as soon as the player gets within spawning distance of them, making it appear as if they were driving by themselves.
  +
*The Glendale bears a striking resemblance to the car (a [[wp:Ford Anglia|1959-1968 Ford Anglia 105E]]) driven by Harry and Ron in [[wp:Harry Potter: The Chamber of Secrets|Harry Potter: The Chamber of Secrets]], especially when made to fly using the cheat. In fact, its appearance in the deep woods of [[Back O' Beyond]] and the physical state of the Glendale may be a reference to the scene in Chamber of Secrets where the heavily damaged Ford Anglia is seen roaming the Forbidden Forest.
  +
*There is a glitch on some [[PlayStation 2|PS2]] versions of the game where the beater Glendale that 'rolls' down the hill spawns incorrectly, right through a tree. If this occurs, the driving wheels can be witnessed spinning on the ground silently, while the car remains stuck.
  +
===HD Universe===
  +
* In GTA V, it is stated that the Glendale is a "drug dealer's car". This may be a reference to the [[Admiral]] that appears in the [[Introduction (GTA VC)|introduction of GTA Vice City]], where it is used by [[Tommy Vercetti]] and [[Ken Rosenberg]] to arrange a deal between them and [[Lance Vance]]. In fact, Tommy and Ken are both drug dealers, further explaining this reference.
  +
** Additionally, in [[GTA San Andreas]], Big Smoke (who is also a drug dealer) owns a Glendale.
  +
* In [[GTA V]], this car is likely the predecessor of the [[Schafter|2nd-gen Schafter]] since it is based on the early [[1980]]s model, while the Schafter itself is based on the [[2009]]-present model.

Southernsanandreassuperautos.com description.

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

DesignEdit

3D UniverseEdit

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, with the headlights and roof from a 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air, while the back and sides 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, Savanna, Tornado, and the Voodoo, the Glendale in GTA San Andreas doesn't 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.

HD UniverseEdit

The Glendale was re-introduced in the I'm Not a Hipster Update for GTA V. The Glendale is now based on the Mercedes-Benz W123 (most likely the 280D, as the car has a diesel engine) with front fascia cues from the older W114 and a very similar design of the rear and the taillights like the full-size Mercedes-Benz W108/109. With these design cues, it is probably the bulkier cousin of the GTA III-era's Admiral, which is based on the smaller Mercedes-Benz 190 series. It also takes design cues, mostly at the rear fascia and taillight cluster, from the BMW E3 3.0Si/Bavaria.

PerformanceEdit

3D UniverseEdit

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 possesses a weak engine, and as a result, is also a poor hill climber.

HD UniverseEdit

Glendale-Benefactor-engine-front-gtav

Engine close up in GTA V.

The Glendale is powered by a high-revving, diesel V6 coupled with a FR layout. The Glendale is a heavy car; The weight plus a soft suspension and the somewhat weak engine means the car understeers through corners despite heavy throttle work, often resulting in spin-outs due to its terrible handling. Poor weight distribution and body roll may result in the vehicle losing control easily, especially at high speeds. The car's acceleration is above average for the majority of the sedan class, but is still mediocre to other car classes in general. Despite these shortcomings, the Glendale has a good top speed which barely touches 200 mph, which is surprising for a vehicle of its age and class. Durability is average for most sedans, as the car can only take a few head-on collisions before its engine fails. 

VariantsEdit

"Beater" GlendaleEdit

Glendale-GTASA-beater-front

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

The "Beater" Glendale (internally named the "GLENSHIT") is a GTA San Andreas variation of the Glendale in which the car is damaged, cannot be fixed (you can fix the tires if you shoot them out), and cannot be modified. The "beater" variant has also different wheels and slightly different interior compared to normal Glendale. They have been seen spawning in several places in San Andreas, especially between the two horseshoe shaped rocks in Back o' Beyond and is also said to be the ghost car.

Bloodring BangerEdit

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, such as metal bars on the exterior, for protection, and a much more capable engine. 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.

TriviaEdit

GeneralEdit

3D UniverseEdit

  • The Glendale plays the following radio stations by default when entered:
  • Big Smoke's Glendale plays the radio station Bounce FM instead of Radio Los Santos when entered.
  • The Beater Glendale is nicknamed the Ghost Car, due to the spawn point of several Glendales on the slope of a hill in Back'o'Beyond. The Beaters roll down the hill as soon as the player gets within spawning distance of them, making it appear as if they were driving by themselves.
  • The Glendale bears a striking resemblance to the car (a 1959-1968 Ford Anglia 105E) driven by Harry and Ron in Harry Potter: The Chamber of Secrets, especially when made to fly using the cheat. In fact, its appearance in the deep woods of Back O' Beyond and the physical state of the Glendale may be a reference to the scene in Chamber of Secrets where the heavily damaged Ford Anglia is seen roaming the Forbidden Forest.
  • There is a glitch on some PS2 versions of the game where the beater Glendale that 'rolls' down the hill spawns incorrectly, right through a tree. If this occurs, the driving wheels can be witnessed spinning on the ground silently, while the car remains stuck.

HD UniverseEdit

  • In GTA V, it is stated that the Glendale is a "drug dealer's car". This may be a reference to the Admiral that appears in the introduction of GTA Vice City, where it is used by Tommy Vercetti and Ken Rosenberg to arrange a deal between them and Lance Vance. In fact, Tommy and Ken are both drug dealers, further explaining this reference.
    • Additionally, in GTA San Andreas, Big Smoke (who is also a drug dealer) owns a Glendale.
  • In GTA V, this car is likely the predecessor of the 2nd-gen Schafter since it is based on the early 1980s model, while the Schafter itself is based on the 2009-present model.
  • Despite being a sedan, the Glendale has the typical engine sound of SUVs and pickup trucks, this is because it has a Diesel engine, despite most SUVs with this engine sound being powered by a gasoline engine, its engine noise is shared with the Granger, DubstaSadler, Bison and the Bodhi.
