In the game, there is a variant of the Glendale car, called "glenshit" in the game's internal files. This vehicle differs from the normal Glendale because all of its body panels and doors are dented. Its damages cannot be repaired by cheats or by visiting a Pay 'N' Spray. Several of these Beater Glendales spawn in the woods of Back O' Beyond, south of the two horseshoe-shaped rocks. However, they spawn on the side of a steep hill, which makes them slide to the bottom of the hill as soon as they spawn, making it appear as if they are driving by themselves. This phenomenon can be witnessed at any time in the location in Back O' Beyond; It is unknown if this is a glitch, or if game developers implemented this on purpose.
Many fan-made videos show the cars whirring to life with their lights turning on and attempting to run down the player. While this happens, the car is immune to damage, and will not stop unless the player is killed, or the car is somehow damaged beyond drivability. No evidence that supports these videos has ever been found.
There is a glitch on some PS2 versions of the game where the ghost car that 'rolls' down the hill spawns incorrectly, right through a tree. If this occurs, the driving wheels can be witnessed spinning on the ground silently, while the car remains stuck.
In GTA IVIn Multiplayer (unknown in Single Player), some cars have no driver, and are unobtainable, but they're driving around like there is someone in them. They can be stolen if the driver-side window is shot out. Some cannot even be obtained by this means. They appear after someone has obtained a 3-5 star wanted level, usually. Some pop up at random. They can be seen (listed from most sightings to least) in and around the Dukes area, Bohan and northern Algonquin. They have no driver and you shoot them, they don't speed away.
They appear randomly and can be stolen. They can randomly disappear too, and can appear if a player lags out. The lagging out, or purchase of a vehicle replacing the personal vehicle, creates a car that is unobtainable, even if the windows are shot out.
- The Glendale isn't the only vehicle that has a beater variant. The Sadler, a pickup truck, also has a beater version, and it spawns in various locations around San Andreas, but it's spawns without a back liscense plate on the mobile version.
