TriviaEdit

  • In Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories, the store (visited in Cipriani's Chauffeur) is present, but the windows all blocked by wood, however, the interior still exists from GTA III. If the player stands on an ambulance, and uses the manual aim and aim the camera to the right, the interior can be seen with lights, washing machines and dryers, and even the print on the windows inside. Strangely, a baseball bat can be seen on the floor in the middle, this wasn't present in GTA III. However, Toni in the mission can be seen with a bat, but the texture of the bats don't match. It is unknown why the bat is there.
