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

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]]===

The Glendale was re-introduced in the [[I'm Not a Hipster Update]] for GTA V. No longer an American vintage sedan, the new Glendale is now based on the [[wp:Mercedes-Benz W123|Mercedes-Benz W123]] (most likely the 300D, 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].

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.

=== Prominent uses ===

==Performance==
The Glendale is a common gang car, predominantly in GTA San Andreas (the [[Varrios Los Aztecas]]); where it spawns commonly and its occupants take 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).

  +
===HD Universe===
  +
The Glendale is powered by the same engine fitted to the [[Regina]] and [[Tornado]], being a single-overhead camshaft V8 fitted with a cylindrical air filter. 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. 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]].

=== Bloodring Banger ===
+
===[[Grand Theft Auto V]]===
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.

** [[Radio Los Santos]] in the standard Glendale in GTA San Andreas.

The "[[Beaters|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 cars|ghost car]].
** [[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 (a 1959-1968 Ford Anglia 105E) 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.
 
* 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.

"What's known in the trade as a 'drug dealers car'. 1990s luxury German four door sedan turned 2010s roving depot for stepped-on cocaine. Expect to get stopped by the cops and stuck up by junkies."
Southern San Andreas Super Autos description.

The Glendale is a four-door sedan featured in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories, Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online. It is manufactured by Benefactor in the HD Universe.

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. No longer an American vintage sedan, the new Glendale is now based on the Mercedes-Benz W123 (most likely the 300D, 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

The Glendale is powered by the same engine fitted to the Regina and Tornado, being a single-overhead camshaft V8 fitted with a cylindrical air filter. 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. Durability is average for most sedans, as the car can only take a few head-on collisions before its engine fails.

VariantsEdit

"Beater" GlendaleEdit

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

Main article: Bloodring Banger

The vehicle 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.
