I've tested this a few times, and haven't seen it mentioned anywhere
else, so:

If you get a Bullet and take it to the Wheel Arch Angels shop in San
Fierro, there's an alleyway behind the shop. Halfway along the alleyway
there's a small alcove in which sits a locked car. I'm sure that the car
is one that exists elsewhere in the game (I stick to Banshees, Bullets
and bikes for the most part so I'm probably just not recognising it) but
I just thought it was strange that it only appeared for me with a Bullet
(rarely found in SF) and not an Elegy or Banshee (the other cars I tried).

Anyone able to test this and see if I just got a coincidence? I saw it
twice, and only when driving a Bullet.

The car is a jester and I'll stick my neck out in saying I think it
becomes unlocked when you steal it for wang cars. All the other cars
you steal become available inside the showroom, but the jester
doesn't. I know I have actually driven the one behind wheel arches so
I may test this next time I have completed the mission where you steal
the jester from the dock cranes

I think you're referring to the Jester, it's a permanent spawn. If you
find it locked, drive a few blocks away and come back (Or better still,
blow it up) and it should eventually spawn with the doors unlocked.

Bizarrely, the Packer in north-eastern LV near the military fuel dump
is always locked when driving certain vehicles. Approach it in any
small car and it's unlocked, anything larger (4-door saloons, vans,
trucks) and it will lock itself.

It's also one of the very few vehicles I've found that sound the
car-alarm everytime too.


Cheers,
Rob
