Real Vehicle Names XBOX derived from xbox version of american.gxt
This is a mod similar to Stpk4's pc version. Its not a conversion of that version, but instead from scratch derived from the xbox version of the american.gxt file.
Changes also include: it has boats, planes, helicopters, motorcycles, and ALL domestic vehicles, (cars, trucks, suv's) with make/model/year ie. '77 Lincoln Mark 5. Also included offroad, industrial/heavy duty and military/law enforcment vehicles.
Created this because the pc version gave me draw issues and blurriness, and a few other pc related things that didnt fit with xbox, certain button sequences were displayed wrong. Best of my knowledge closest match theory on them. I found a couple sources of car comparisons and did the rest googling and comparing extensively, a little bit of my mechanic background aided. Left out faggio and the other humorous rides like mr whoopee .
Current version V2.1: All vehicles complete. Might be a couple stragglers. Feel free to let me know. Works nicely with tonysharkey's car colors mod.
Simply replace american.gxt in your GTA San Andreas/text/ folder. Be sure to backup the original.

Oringal realcars for pc version by: Stpk4
To guticb: The Hydra's body DOES look like the AV-8B Harrier II (Code to spawn it, JUMPJET, says the same as Jumpjet is a nickname for Harriers), but it has some traces from an F-16.
It's still a Harrier to me.
