Unlike the other [[Mule]] based vans, the Mr. Wongs in GTA III and GTA Liberty City Stories are front wheel drive. The Mr. Wongs may also achieve very high speed despite it's bad handling due likely to it's heavy weight. Aside from the drivetrain, it is basically identical to the [[Triad Fish Van]], right down to the horn. Like the Mule and Triad Fish Van, the Mr. Wongs is also available in a variety of body colors.

The Mr. Wongs (also known as the Wong) is a vehicle featured in Grand Theft Auto III, Grand Theft Auto Advance and Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories.

DescriptionEdit

Grand Theft Auto III & Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories Edit

The Mr. Wongs is a Mule-based laundry van, evidently named after the company that uses these, Mr. Wong's Laundrette. It is basically identical to the Triad Fish Van, a truck also based on a Mule. Like the Mule and the Triad Fish Van, the Mr. Wongs is also available in a variety of body colors.

When entered by the player, the truck is referred to as "Mr Wong's" (without a period in the end of "Mr" and an apostrophe before the "s"), but the period is present on the company graphics of the truck, and both the period and the apostrophe appear on the logo on the window of the store. Much like the launderette itself, the van also features the slogans: "Liberty's First Choice For All It's Dirty Laundry" and "If It Ain't Wong, It Ain't White" (a pun on the phrase "If it ain't wrong, it ain't right").

Grand Theft Auto AdvanceEdit

In Grand Theft Auto Advance, the vehicle, which name is shortened to be known simply as the "Wong", is the gang car of the Triads, substituting the role of the Triad Fish Van, known in the game as the Belly. It is now depicted more like a truck instead of a cargo van, but it is effectively the largest truck in the game.
