Car deliveries are always from your personal garage, not the ones you stole. However, your personal cars can be taken to body shop and repainted, customized and upgraded (assuming you have the money).

It's not a physical garage any more than your delivery driver has a physical house. Would you prefer the term fleet? There are only a handful of cars you can unlock by stealing. The rest are earned by mission conditions. There are two ways to customize cars. One is to purchase upgrades at the arms dealer van. The other is to drive to a Big Rick's Custom Auto location. Rick's offers paint, decals, license plates, supercharger and exhaust customizations. Those last two sound like they'd improve performance, but they're purely cosmetic. Rick's will only customize cars in your fleet.

And don't forget, there are predefined setups that you can access that will modify a car for top-end speed or handling, which I've found to be useful to access for races.

Not done any customizing and no races. may try one but not my thing. I trade cars so much that customizing one would be a waste. Maybe one day. If I do Id probably customize the Vette or Camaro I started with. The little 240Z looking ones are fun but not powerful enough. Love their horns though. So European.

I think my game broke. Im at the big house with all the cult people. My sound is suddenly reversed so Im hearing people on my left when they are on my right. I hear them above me when they are below me. Im seeing gunfire whiz by me from behind and through walls but no one is in that direction. Its so messed up I just cant play it.

They've made it really difficult to get a screenshot from Steam to a webpage now days. ugh. I hate complications.

Anyways this is two of my cars. The black Camaro you start with modded some...new interior and supercharger and such...same with the Vette but I painted it red...little red corvette haha ohh.

Well I modded another car and took a pic but Ill be danged if I can remember how I posted the last one. I cant even find the screenshots. It used to be easy with Steam but they changed something and made it almost impossible.

EDIT: I just had to find it on disk then use Imgur...waste of effort really.

You should be able to link to a screenshot that you've uploaded to Steam. Starting from the Steam Screenshots UI, click on the image you want to link. That will pop up a window with a url that looks like //steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1234567890. Click on that image, and you'll get a different pop up window with a url that looks like //steamuserimages-a.akamaihd.net/ugc/812345678901234567/1234567890ABCDEF1234567890ABCDEF12345678/. You should be able to post a link to the image using the second url (note that I omitted https in the samples so that the bbs software wouldn't try to interpret them as actual links).

Was it a Steam screenshot or one that the game itself made? If you take a screenshot through Steam, upload it and make it public, it should work.

The only thing I can think of is that perhaps you didn't upload the screenshot to Steam. IIRC, the screenshot UI only shows the online library, not the local files on your computer. If that's not it, then ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I repaired Sammy's Bar first stage with all the fixins. Also customized me a Mustang looking car louvers and all. After I do some side missions I plan to get money for the next stage of Sammy's. I kinda dont concentrate on any one thing. That way I dont burn out. Im hoping Sammy's makes me some money. I really need to concentrate on getting $140k for Vitos so they will auto pick up my kickbacks...but thats a lot of scratch. For now its more murder and mayhem. Its fun to just jump someone on the sidewalk and headplant them. Then kill the next 12 witnesses as they head for the phone Im standing by hehehe.

Just completed a large side mission with my CIA contact Donovan on a separate map island to retrieve a certain weapon. Was like being in Cuba. A very fun one. Had a hint of Ghost, and Sniper Elite to it.

May have screwed up Sammy place. I was on a bounty hunting mission and I didn't know it was on a timer and they're like little instances. So I went to Sammy and upgraded upstairs and put in the pool hall and upgraded that. Id been wanting the pool hall a long time. But then the timer ran out on the bounty and it teleported me back to the bounty office. When I finally got back to Sammys the upstairs was not opened yet so I reopened it but it wont let me add the pool hall. It shows as being fully upgraded but when you go up there its an empty except for the static stock unused space area. Damn. Maybe if I exit the game and start again . Will see next go.

Nope the pool hall is fubar. It thinks its there but it isn't so I cant build it. Shrug.

Got me a new really fast great turning ride. Had to race a guy 1 lap. I was ahead then him. I took a shortcut on a turn and was ahead. Then 1 turn from the finish there was a bridge. He tried to pass me on the right and I crowded him out and slammed him into the bridge abutment. Free car and got to hire a bartender for the bar too. Was kinda hoping having a bar would bring in money. The more I upgrade the better the money. So far Ive not seen that happen.

Damn, I might have to reinstall this game and give it some more play. It was one of the few campaign games that I played all the way through.

I have a new contact who I can run bounties for. He also acts as a call in sniper.

He looks and acts like this guy from Life on Mars.

I don't remember that car from the game. Is it from one of the DLCs? One of my favourite things to do for a race is to put it in first-person. Also, you have a chance to change the car's setup depending to suit the type of race, ie speed vs acceleration vs handling.

Im not sure whats in this version. Its the M3 Definitive Edition. I thought it was the normal game just updated. But with you not seeing this car before and that side mission I just ran that was a full new map Im wondering if the DLC is included with it.

Ok I just looked. It does include it all. Had no idea.
Mafia III: Definitive Edition includes the main game, all Story DLC (Faster, Baby!, Stones Unturned, Sign of the Times) and Bonus Packs (Family Kick-Back Pack and Judge, Jury & Executioner Weapons Pack) bundled in one place for the first time.

There is a scary amount of citizens who want to jump right out in front of my car when I blow the horn. I mean 50/50 to jump the right way and they get the wrong direction an absurd amount of the time.
