    Linked to it on the front page, basic description of the Grand Marshal and the Ibishu Covet so far. The figures I've used are ingame values, although the horsepower and torque values may be a bit inaccurate.

    Thoughts?

    With the covet, you got the wheel pictures the wrong way around.

    Added placeholder content for the D15, H15 and Bolide. Content will be coming soon, page is still obviously WIP.

    If you have anything to add to the descriptions then do so, but don't edit/remove anything existing unless it's incorrect/bad.

    Make sure they're consistent, as in from the same angle/zoom and so on.

    - - - Updated - - -

    Changed the wiki page up drastically. The Vehicle List is now an index page containing the manufacturers, model names are underneath. Each model name is a hyperlink to its own page where I'll have more freedom to add images of the variants.

    Don't add a title to the page or it will show up unnecessarily in the TOC. Other pages in the wiki don't have titles either.

    I love the description of the two cars, very realistic and technical. It actually taught me about the cars-I never realized the Covet was so powerful or that it's suspension was actually any good. I just assumed every thing about the car to be sub-standard and poor. I hope the remaining pages are just as informative.

    My descriptions are basically just a mockup of what you'd see on a wiki page for a real car. The figures are from in game, and the info on the suspension is from a post gabester made about the Covet.

    Thanks for the comment though, I'll work on the others from tomorrow.

    Are you going to add pages for the mod cars as well?

    I'm not sure. On one side, things such as the 49 Cadillac are amazing quality, but on the other hand you'd never see something like a GTA Wiki having pages for car mods.

    I think I'm just going to keep it for official cars; when time goes on so many mods will come out that it's pointless keeping up with everything.

    - - - Updated - - -

    Added the full description and model imaged for the H15 Vanster, that'll be my last page edit for tonight.

    I've also added the only pictures we were missing so far, the alternative versions of each car like the Grand Marshal Police, Covet Rally, etc. I only just noticed that my screenshots don't have AO applied, so they look a bit inconsistent with metalmuncher's images. I've noted this, and I'll be replacing them tomorrow. However, they'll do just fine as placeholders for now.

    This is a really good idea (?) and I am looking forward to future updates.

    I'll be giving the rest of the vehicles complete descriptions later today so someone else will have to take care of the maps.

    I've added the torque/power curves to the Grand Marshal page. As it shares the engine with V8 H15 and D15, the same image can be used for them.

    Kind of left the descriptions a bit too long, started work on the D15 page. I've covered each variant in a decent amount of detail, but if anyone else wants to "pad it out" to have less whitespace somehow, be my guest. I've marked in bold an area where we need someone to provide the power and torque figures for it.

    Changed the pictures for each car that recieved a new colour in today's update.

    EDIT: Finished the page for the Bolide. Every current car is now finished in terms of their Wiki pages.
