"Let me guess, Sweet - senseless killing right, but a boyfriend from the Southside, wrong?"
Kendl Johnson

Cesar Vialpando is a mission in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas given to protagonist Carl Johnson by Grove Street Families leader and brother Sweet from his home in the Grove Street cul-de-sac in Ganton.


Carl drops by Sweet's house, only to find Sweet and Kendl arguing because of Kendl's relationship with Cesar Vialpando, the leader of the Varrios Los Aztecas. After a while, Kendl leaves, and Sweet furiously orders CJ to go and watch over Kendl in case anything dangerous occurs.

Carl goes to the Loco Low Co. garage in Willowfield. Once there, he is given a Savanna by a worker who says that owed Sweet from way back. Carl modifies the car and then goes to the meet in Unity Station, where Kendl and Cesar are going to be. Upon arriving, he competes against a Varrios Los Aztecas gang member in a lowrider competition. After getting more points on bouncing his lowrider's hydraulics, Carl wins the wager he earlier made.

Kendl happily celebrates and hugs Carl, just as Cesar shows up and shakes hands. All of a sudden, a verbal argument ensues and one of Cesar's friends attempts starting a fight with Carl. Cesar, however, manages to stop it. Things calm down, and Cesar explains that Carl has to accept that he treats Kendl well, and is her boyfriend. Cesar and Carl then introduce themselves to one other, and head their separate ways.

Mission objectives

In order to complete the mission the player must:

  • Go to the garage in Willowfield.
  • Back up the lowrider into the mod garage.
  • Get to the lowrider meeting.
  • Use the suspension controls to bounce in time with the music.


Carl Johnson enters Sweet's House to find Sweet Johnson and Kendl Johnson arguing over her dating Cesar Vialpando.
Sweet I'm tired of you not listening to me, girl!
Kendl And I'm tired of you acting like you own me! I can see who I wanna see.
Sweet I just think this ain't right you seeing some Cholo motherfucker!
Kendl Oh, what, a no good, narrow minded, hypocrite gang banger telling me what is right and what is wrong? Let me guess, Sweet, senseless killing right? But a boyfriend from the South-side wrong?
Sweet Some things ain't just fit to happen. I mean, what if you have kids, Leroy Hernandez? That don't sound good.
Kendl His name ain't Hernandez.
Sweet Well, Leroy Lopez then.
Kendl Or Lopez either you racist fuck, that ain't how moms raised us.
Sweet Well, I ain't racist, I just know how they feel about you. I mean look at you, dressed like a hooker.
Kendl Oh, and I guess you two would know what a hooker looks like, huh?
CJ You say it like it's a bad thing.
Sweet & Kendl Shutup, Carl!
Sweet I'm just trying to protect you.
Kendl For what? So I can date one of your mindless friends? I don't think so.
Sweet Don't say a word, Carl. Just follow your sister before you see another dead sibling, then you see exactly what my problem is. She's meeting him at some Cholo car club.
CJ drives to a TransFender in Willowfield to get a custom Lowrider for the Cholo car club.
TransFender Owner So you must be Sweet's bro, huh? He phoned ahead, said you might be looking for a car that bounces. Well I owe him big from way back, so here, this should do the trick. Custom springs should see you hopping all of the way home. Try her out, very popular with the Es'ays. They compete in these things. You can usually find them over by Unity Station. If you ever wanna mod your ride come back any time, man.
CJ customizes the car and heads to Unity Station to compete in the Lowrider Challenge.
Gangster Alright homie, let's see if you've got what it takes.
CJ completes the Lowrider challenge.
Gangster I've seen worse, but you did okay.
Kendl That shit was alright! So since when has my brother been a low rider?
CJ Since Sweet told me to keep an eye on you, make sure that whatever you're dating don't get you in trouble.
Cesar Nice heartbeat homes!
Kendl Well you just shook that whatever's hand.
CJ Ey, get your dirty hands off my sister!
Kendl Carl, what is wrong with you!
Cesar You're acting like she's your woman, ey. She's with me, cabron, so chill the fuck out. I treat her good.
Kendl Listen, you don't start no shit, don't make it worse.
Bald Gangster Who's this pendico?
Kendl What? Dickhead, this dickhead is my brother!
Cesar Easy, homes, he ain't from no where. He's cool.
Bald Gangster But I say he ain't cool. I say he thinks he's gangster and I don't like it. So you know what you can do for me, man? You can fuck off, pendico, and then, maybe we cool.
CJ You fuck off, I'm talking to my sister!
Kendl CARL!
Cesar Hose, come on, homes, I can handle this, this is important to me.
Bald Gangster Hey, pendico, you lucky. That's right, you lucky Cesar has spoken for you. Vaminos muchachos. Let's get some fucking beer, huh? I'm...thirsty.
CJ Carl! What the hell were you thinking?
Cesar Look baby, go get in the car, okay? I'ma speak to Carl. Look homes, I love your sister. I honor her, she's my girl for life, this is why I stopped you from being skinned just then. You got a problem with me then fine, we don't have to be friends. But Kendl, she's happy with me.
CJ Yeah, okay. I guess we cool, for now.
Cesar Cesar Vialpando.
CJ Carl Johnson. CJ.
Cesar Cabron, you got a nice car there, homes! Maybe we'll get to kick it again soon, eh?
CJ Yeah. Maybe.

The reward for completing this mission is double the amount of money chosen for the wager. The mission High Stakes, Low Rider is unlocked, as well as the Lowrider Challenge side mission. The Loco Low Co. and TransFender mod garages are also unlocked, where the player can modify his vehicle.


  • Kendl can be seen taking a pink jar of Slick-O-Greese Sex Lard with her at the beginning of the mission before she goes to see Cesar.
  • When CJ is confronted by Cesar's gang members, the one speaking uses the same model as the snitch seen in The Introduction.
  • The higher the stake in the Lowrider Challenge, the more difficult it is.
  • An added challenge in this mission is to keep the low-rider you receive from being heavily damaged or destroyed by gang members shooting at it, or collisions, especially after paying for it to be modified (at least until the mission is complete). Pay 'n' Sprays can be utilized to repair damage (without drastically changing the vehicle's look), which is important for later low-rider challenges.
  • Should the original Savanna be lost, you may often find one parked in the strip mall parking lot directly south of the Johnson House in Ganton.
  • The mission complete song will not play after successfully completing this mission.
  • The music that is heard when Kendl introduces CJ to Cesar is "Cypress Hill: How I could just kill a man". It can also be heard on Radio Los Santos.
  • In the PC version, a glitch might occur, where no matter how well timed, it will never accept bouncing up or down, calling it the wrong move. This is because the keys for up and down are reversed, so if one presses down when it displays up, it will register.
