Hey man! Thnx for the message, actually i haven't got PS3 or XBOX360... but i hope GTA V will exit for PC, then maybe i'll play it, the vehicles well i really like them and i am very pleased to edit car pages and help there :)Youandagif (talk) 09:08, September 11, 2013 (UTC)


Hahahaha, thank you, JB! :D

So, what cars are you longing to drive for, in GTA V? "Dayum", I gotta say, the Cheetah is looking really good!

Mikey Klebbitz (talk) 10:41, September 11, 2013 (UTC)

I'm also looking forward to drive the Tornado...does that car bring good memories from good ol' San Andreas...

Now out of the realm of land vehicles in GTA V, I'm worried about the spoilers about the storyline...I just hope I don't read the final forehand like I did with GTA IV, and it did completely ruin the surprise...

Amanda De Santa

Hello, and thanks for your welcome. I was just wondering can you unlock the Amanda De Santa page, or at the very least make a small edit? It says on the page that Franklin chases her lover out the window, but after watching the Michael trailer many, many times, it is clearly Michael who does it, not Franklin. Throughout all the trailers shown so far, Franklin and Amanda have had no interaction whatsoever. I would edit it myself, but as stated, the page is locked to me for some reason. Many thanks.

Dream GTA Radio Station Playlist?

Hey there JBanton,

So like you guys, we’re all pretty pumped for GTAV here at Wikia, and we wanted to do something fun in anticipation. The idea is that everyone makes their own dream GTA radio station by creating a 10 song playlist on Spotify, then we all share the playlists/radio station ideas on a blog post I’m putting up on Friday. A bunch of us from the game team are going to make some, but I think it would be way better to feature you and the other GTA admins since the editors on the Wiki are way more familiar with you guys than us. And hey, you're the GTA experts after all!

I understand if you’re too busy with work/school or you’d just rather not, but if you can find the time please email me your playlist ( and I’ll be sure to include it.

GTA V Book of Vehicles

Hi JBanton, it is Smashbro8. A user has uploaded pictures from a whole book of nearly all the vehicles appearing in Grand Theft Auto V. You and I should check these out, for some of these pictures show the vehicles' true names and what they look like/how they perform! Please get back to me! Smashbro8 (talk) 16:27, September 12, 2013 (UTC)Smashbro8

New Vehicle Pages

JBanton! It is Smashbro8! I can't create new pages for the new GTA V vehicles! Everytime I press paste, it comes up with some warning telling me I cannot paste it. What should I do? Smashbro8 (talk) 20:07, September 12, 2013 (UTC)Smashbro8

Legendary Motor

Hey, J. Just if you're interested: Legendary Motorsport. -- ILan (XDEditsHome ) 07:47, September 13, 2013 (UTC)

Well, I also found this: LS Customs. -- ILan (XDEditsHome ) 07:56, September 13, 2013 (UTC)

Hey! Thanks for the heads-up. You are also doing a great job. :)


Oh, just the usual 'things' happening. Not a great deal tho. I'm working on updating the rest of the vehicle now. Instulent (talk) 16:16, September 13, 2013 (UTC)

Also, could you unlock the 'Vehicle Brand in the HD Universe' template please. Thanks Instulent (talk) 16:42, September 13, 2013 (UTC)


So, I am watching GTA V gameplay live stream and I've noticed that now instead of displaying "Oracle", it says "Ubermacht Oracle, Sports". Same for other vehicles like Caddy (Caddy, Utility) (There is also a roofless Caddy). So I was thinking, should the "Class" section be added on the Vehicle Infoboxes?

If you want I can link you the stream or take a screen when it displays after entering a vehicle.

According to an edit from Dodo8 [1], you've posted pictures from an illegally leaked strategy guide from GTA5. I announced in User_blog:McJeff/GTAWiki_News:_Leaked_information_ban that leaks were not to be published on this wiki. As an administrator, you should be helping purge the wiki of illegally leaked information and warning new editors who post it, not helping spread it. Jeff (talk|stalk) 21:46, September 13, 2013 (UTC)

Aren't the guides an official product? JBanton (Talk | Contribs) 21:51, September 13, 2013 (UTC)


Would you mind not deleting the photos I'm uploadinmg to the wiki? It's not leaked content it's from a new video Rockstar has on the GTA V website[2]Boomer8 (talk) 22:28, September 13, 2013 (UTC)


Hi JB. Before I ask you for something, I need to know if you can see this link

I can see that's it's a leaked video, so I'm not going to watch it. JBanton (Talk | Contribs) 08:52, September 14, 2013 (UTC)


Hey Jonny, can you please rename this page to = Mount Chiliad (GTA V) ? Thanks :) --Thomas0802 • (talkedits) 09:03, September 14, 2013 (UTC)

It has been done; "Mount Chilliad (HD Universe)". JBanton (Talk | Contribs) 09:10, September 14, 2013 (UTC)
  • Ok, so this page to Mount Chiliad (3D Universe) ? --Thomas0802 • (talkedits) 09:19, September 14, 2013 (UTC)

Need Help?

Hey, J. I was asking if you need a second comrade to help out on the vehicle pages. I'm not frequent on the sports/super/hyper cars as much as my interests on American vintage automobiles. I'm trying to stay on top of them, but I'm not active as much because of school starting four weeks ago. As of right now, I'm mostly reading about Ferrari-produced vehicles, Jaguars and and other overseas vehicle manufacturers.

--Tony1998 (Talker * Blogger * Stalker)-- 19:47, September 14, 2013 (UTC)

Inactivity notice

I just wanted to let you know, school starts on 16 September. Here, at the end of the year we will have to pass 2 exams with a grade as high as possible, this will decide our future. The higher the grade, the better the high school. Due to this I'll have to learn a lot and do a lot of homework, so I will become inactive. I'll try to check the wiki as much as possible, maybe even daily, but I won't edit that much. Cheers! Dodo8 Talk


Hi J, I have a few questions for you, but would prefer to handle them in private. Is this possible? Maybe private chat?Thanks!

Koala415 (talk) 17:57, September 17, 2013 (UTC) 

Sure thing, I'll be in the chat for a few hours. JBanton (Talk | Contribs) 18:44, September 17, 2013 (UTC)


Told you it handled like a phone box..

Have you tried the Tailgater or the BeeJay X? Both good vehicles Instulent (talk) 18:53, September 17, 2013 (UTC)

Customized car

Hey JBanton. I got GTA V working and I see you have customized a car. Looks nice, but wait till I retrieve my beautiful red Baller from the impound. Customize her and she's gonna roll! HA!!! Smashbro8 (talk) 20:05, September 19, 2013 (UTC)Smashbro8

Vehicle list addition


Hi, I don't know if this is the right area to put this but I noticed the Ripley was not on the vehicle list. The Ripley can be found at Los Santos International Airport, both parked and driving around. I would edit it myself but I can't find an edit button. If it is there and I have missed it then ignore me :-).


Jmnumber (talk) 10:35, September 20, 2013 (UTC)

Where to post?

Hi, if I see things on this wiki that need editing or if I think things need adding and the page in question is locked, where do I post it? Currently its mainly vehicles for the table but it would be good to know for future reference. Thanks, Jmnumber

Jmnumber (talk) 23:23, September 20, 2013 (UTC)

Broken Links

Hi, I changed some details on the GTA V vehicle page (thanks for unlocking it!) However when I changed the Speedophile 2000 to Sea Shark (cos that's it actual name in-game) I think I might have broken the hyperlink. Not sure what to do so could you take a look at some point when you're free. I also added the buccaneer to the muscle car list, added Jet to the aircraft list and changed submarine to submersible in case they have problems.

Thanks, Jmnumber

Jmnumber (talk) 22:58, September 21, 2013 (UTC)


Fixed :) -- ILan (XDEditsHome ) 19:13, September 23, 2013 (UTC)

No problem. Near the "Add Summary" section, there are "Minor Edit" and "Commenting", be sure to keep the "Commenting" marked. -- ILan (XDEditsHome ) 19:21, September 23, 2013 (UTC)

Customized Dominator

Sup JBanton. Nice Dominator! I love its color. But you should check out the pictures of my cars on my user page. I took pictures of all my cars except my Police Cruiser, Police Bike, Felon GT, Sentinel (if it is still there and not lost), and sport bike. Smashbro8 (talk) 19:28, September 23, 2013 (UTC)Smashbro8

GTA V Vehicle Images

Hi, I was nosing around the web to find some more info about gta v vehicles and I came across a website with modern pics of all the vehicles in gta v. Its a website called igtav (first or second option if googling "vehicles in gta v"). Apparently the pics are from rockstar so I assume we can use them however we want. I haven't used any yet cos I thought I would speak to you first. Have alook when you're free, Jmnumber

--J-- </span></p>

Edit Request


Is there any chance you can add my review to your external links on the GTAV page please. The link is

Thank you.

GTA V Police Buffalo

JBanton! I just found a Police Buffalo in single player! I'm not kidding! I've taken photos of it but I was wondering if they'd be good enough to upload. A good image name is needed! Please help! Smashbro8 (talk) 18:27, September 26, 2013 (UTC)Smashbro8

Police Buffalo GTA V

I still am confused with the image policy thing. Is it okay if you give me your email so that I can send you the pictures? They just need renaming so that they can be uploaded without violating the image policy. Be careful though, the car is a tiny bit damaged because I had to evade a two star-wanted level. Smashbro8 (talk) 18:41, September 26, 2013 (UTC)Smashbro8

Police Buffalo GTA V

Hi JBanton! What do you think about the pictures I posted for the Police Buffalo? If you want me to, now that I have the car repaired by saving it in Michael's garage, I can take and upload better photos of the car. Smashbro8 (talk) 19:14, September 26, 2013 (UTC)Smashbro8

Entity XF

Please explain why you deleted the image that I uploaded? James1579 (talk) 20:35, September 26, 2013 (UTC)


Hey Bro. I've just noticed something peculiar on the back of the Surfer. It says "Bürgerfahrung", my German's kinda rusty but I'm pretty sure it translates to something like "The Citizen's Vehicle"... Sounds kinda familiar to an other real life car brand eh? TheDeaconBosco (talk) 21:17, September 26, 2013 (UTC)


Hey, bro, how are you?

Some guys on IGN made a list of every vehicle you can find in the game, including stats.

Enjoy! -- ILan (XDEditsHome ) 15:24, September 28, 2013 (UTC)

I guess so.
One thing that really pisses me off are those two Buzzard model. Just... why? -- ILan (XDEditsHome ) 15:30, September 28, 2013 (UTC)

GTA V Police Buffalo

Ay JBanton?! Did you check out the pictures of the Police Buffalo I found? Just wondering....Smashbro8 (talk) 15:35, September 28, 2013 (UTC)Smashbro8

FIB Buffalo

Yea I'm quite lucky to find a Police Buffalo but have you found a Monroe, Asea, Unmarked Cruiser or FIB Buffalo? I have not yet found those anywhere. Smashbro8 (talk) 15:43, September 28, 2013 (UTC)Smashbro8

GTA V Monroe

JBanton! What mission did you find the Monroe in? I hope I didn't do the mission already!Smashbro8 (talk) 16:28, September 28, 2013 (UTC)Smashbro8

Prairie GTA V

Hey JBanton, do you think the rear of the Prairie in GTA V resembles this Honda Civic? Please get back at me. Smashbro8 (talk) 19:07, September 29, 2013 (UTC)Smashbro8

Prairie in GTA V

Yea it's not a bad car. I wish the rear looked like the real Tiburon instead of the front. I love the rear of a Tiburon! But yea the Prairie is not bad and I love to find a bright orange one! That's the best! And look at you, you've encountered the Monroe, Cheetah, Dominator, etc. Some of these cars I never saw or only saw once in the game. Hey JBanton, what do you think about the Car Spawning system and Wanted Level system of GTA V? Smashbro8 (talk) 19:14, September 29, 2013 (UTC)Smashbro8


Yea the Car Spawning system to me spawns the same cars too often. I see Beejay XLs all over the place and it annoys me sometimes. And where does the Adder spawn, I'd like to see one!! 

BTW what do you think about GTA V's wanted level system? Smashbro8 (talk) 19:31, September 29, 2013 (UTC)Smashbro8

GTA V Police

Yea the police in GTA V are very harsh, especially on three stars. I want a Police Transporter but because the cops are so strong, I always die, while I'm trying to obtain the van at three stars. The cops also take too long on their search before the star (s) goes away. Some searches last minutes. Imagine staying for minutes hiding from the cops who are coming towards your location while searching, or imagine driving wrecklessly trying to avoid oncoming cops for minutes just to lose a star? However, I'm glad that the cops do not patrol the streets in GTA V, it makes it a bit easier to do nonsense without worrying about getting a one star. I still hate GTA V's wanted level system and it's only a bit better than IV's Smashbro8 (talk) 19:52, September 29, 2013 (UTC)Smashbro8

GTA Online First Race

Hey JBanton! I was wondering if you have ever gotten past the first race in GTA Online right after you get off the plane? I am asking this because everytime I play GTA Online my character walks to the race and it always says launching session. Ten minutes will pass and the race has not even launched yet. This happens even after I go back to xbox dashboard and try again! Like I can't get past the race cause it never loads! If I play Solo on Online, it tells me to go to the race, which isn't actually there in solo mode. Anyway, I was wondering if you were experiencing this problem or knew anyone who had the problem and got past it, cause I am sick and tired of waiting on the first race of Online that never actually loads and comes to life. Oh and btw, I too lost my first female character I made so I had to start over with a new one. Smashbro8 (talk) 12:40, October 4, 2013 (UTC)Smashbro8

GTA Online First Race

Hey JBanton. Yea, I was saying that you cannot get to any missions or anything until you do the first race in GTA Online, as for as soon as your character lands on the plane and is dropped off by Lamar, he/she automatically walks into the marker for the race. So you had to do the race already. This is where I'm stuck cause this race always says launching session and even after ten minutes, hasn't launched fully yet. Smashbro8 (talk) 16:51, October 4, 2013 (UTC)Smashbro8

Principe Nemesis motorbike

Hey JB! How are you finding the vehicles in LS? I'm finding them AWESOME!

So, I found this bike yesterday while playing as Trevor, near Vespucci Beach. It's an off-road bike, kinda like the Sanchez but with a different side design.

I'd upload the image, but transferring th image from my new phone to my PC is way too complicated, and I can't find it when I link them with the USB cable. When I get the oppurtunity of WI-Fi internet, I'll try to upload it here, directly from my phone.

Keep riding.

Wiki Awards

Hey there JBanton,

So seeing as GTA V has been out for a little bit now, I just wanted to reach out to you and the other GTA Wiki admins about doing a Wiki Awards page/blog post for GTA V. What the heck is a Wiki Awards? It's basically a poll for the users that lets them pick out their favorite parts of the game. Here's a good example.

We generally like to get the admins of each Wiki to suggest the candidates and topics for the awards, so if you guys have any you'd like to suggest, that'd be perfect. Please let me know if you're interested in contributing, and as always thanks for all your hard work keeping the GTA Wiki going!

RE: Images

Alright, thanks for the post! Switch101 (talk) 15:47, October 9, 2013 (UTC)


There are far too many vehicle categories. We're trying to remove to pointless ones. Tom Talk 18:17, October 12, 2013 (UTC)

Would those be the "executive vehicles" and "luxury vehicles" categories? Tom Talk 18:20, October 12, 2013 (UTC)
Don't assume that everybody's as passionate about cars as you are, I doubt that we get a significant amount of people coming on here and thinking like that. If people visit us looking for vehicle info, they'll most likely go to the vehicle articles, such as Vehicles in GTA V, and see a list of vehicles which are all categorised in a table - granted those articles do need some work. Tom Talk 18:49, October 12, 2013 (UTC)
The plan is to categorise them in that style, hence why we kept "Sports cars", but it's a big job and we haven't completed it yet. Feel free to help out. Tom Talk 19:00, October 12, 2013 (UTC)
Also, since vehicles are your thing, we could really do with sorting the Vehicles in GTA V page out, if you have the time to do it. Tom Talk 19:05, October 12, 2013 (UTC)
I meant categories like "Sports cars in GTA V". That's the goal anyway, but like I said, it's a big job. Tom Talk 19:12, October 12, 2013 (UTC)

I get your point. I don't think you get mine. I'm trying to redo the entire category system this Wiki has adopted through the Staff - me included - completely neglecting it. For example, I want a "Sports cars" category, this will contain a bunch of subcategories such as "Sports cars in GTA V". I think this will make it easier to find articles. Tom Talk 19:34, October 12, 2013 (UTC)

The categories are too big a mess to organise, I underestimated the size of the job. You can recreate some of the categories, but last time they were all used on the same articles, defeating the purpose you claimed they had, so be wary of that. Also, I'm not sure if it was you or not but categories like "British vehicles" should not be recreated. Tom Talk 15:48, October 13, 2013 (UTC)

GTA IV - Minor Characters

Do you think we should include the names of the models used by minor characters in GTA IV? (Carmen, Alex, Jill Von Crastenburg, Cloe Parker, etc.) I mean these also appear as regular pedestrians. --XSuperGamerTalk 22:19, November 11, 2013 (UTC)
