Vehicles with special qualities can be found all over San Andreas. Most of these appear during specific missions and have qualities such as being resistant to certain types of attack up to being completely indestructible. Saving a special vehicle like this in your garage can significantly help you with later missions. Here is a list of vehicles with unique qualities, which mission they can be found in, and how they can be saved in your garage.

Please note that during certain missions, vehicles may "seem" bullet, fire, or explosion proof. However, they are not. During certain missions, vehicles may have up to 500% more health than a normal vehicle. However, they'll lose that quality when saved in a garage.

(note: This guide was written by CoyoteMystro exclusively for the GTA Network. If you have any comments or additions, contact him at his yahoo.com email address. This guide is also available in its original format.)

Damage and Health Proof (DHP)
Vehicle is invincible to physical damage. Vehicle is invincible to any type of health damaging attack.

Vehicle
Sabre
Mission
Tanker Commander
First purchase the safe house in Dillimore. Then run through the mission marker to meet Catalina. She'll inform you of four various locations as which to which you can rob, one being the gas station in Dillimore. Head to the gas station and drive/walk into the mission marker. After the cut-scene, Cataline gets into the passengers seat of the Tanker. Go ahead and get in the Tanker but DO NOT attach the Tanker Trailer. Instead, go to the north end of the gas station. You'll notice a Sabre, in a random color. Push it with the Tanker to your Dillimore garage. Once it's in the garage, get out of the Tanker and stand beside the Sabre in the garage, shoot Catalina so that the mission will fail, then simply walk out of the garage, letting it save your DHP Sabre, one of only three DHP vehicles in the entire game that are obtainable.

Vehicle
Glendale
Mission
Los Desperados
Purchase the safe house in El Corona before you start this mission and stow a Tow Truck or Tractor in it. Then start the mission. Work your way through until you reach the alley where one of your members blows up a vehicle with a rocket launcher. Run to the garage and get the Tow Truck or Tractor, then go back to the alley. Kill Cesar then the remaining gang members. Then tow the Glendale to your garage and save.

Vehicle
Admiral
Mission
Los Sepulcros
During the mission, there is a light blue Admiral parked near the south-eastern corner of the cemetary. Once the mission starts, drive Sweet and your gang to the mission marker outside the cemetary. Once there, retrieve a Tractor or Tow Truck from your garage. Drive it to where the Admiral is parked, than using a weapon such as the AK-47, shoot the gang members over by the tombstones. The mission will fail, and you'll now be able to tow the DHP Admiral to your garage.


Damage Proof (DP)
Vehicle is invincible to physical damage.

Vehicle
Greenwood
Mission
End Of The Line
During this mission, the vehicle doesn't take physical damage. Kill Sweet and store it in a garage and save. Unconfirmed as to whether it stays Damage Proof.

Bullet Proof (BP)
Vehicle is invincible to gunfire.

Vehicle
Forklift
Mission
Robbing Uncle Sam
Follow through the mission until you open the warehouse revealing the forklift. Kill Ryder, then store it your garage and save.
or
Follow through the mission until you open the warehouse revealing the forklift, use it to put all the crates in the back of Ryder's truck, then drive the Forklift to your Ganton garage. Then head back to Ryder and complete the mission then head back to your Ganton garage to ensure the BP Forklift saves.
Vehicle
Tanker
Mission
Tanker Commander
First purchase the safe house in El Corona. Then run through the mission marker to meet Catalina. She'll inform you of four various locations as which to which you can rob, one being the gas station in Dillimore. Head to the gas station and drive/walk into the mission marker. After the cut-scene, Cataline gets into the passengers seat of the Tanker. Go ahead and get in the Tanker but DO NOT attach the Tanker Trailer. Drive the Tanker to your El Corona garage, then shoot Catalina to fail the mission and let the garage door shut, saving the BP Tanker.
Vehicle
Tanker Trailer
Mission
Tanker Commander
Not that it really matters, because at this point in the game there is no garage large enough nor purchasable to which to contain this Tanker Trailer. The only garages that could hold this trailer are the Vehicle and Aircraft garage at the Abandoned Airfield, and possibly the safe houses in Doherty and Hashury. But as stated, those properties are unreachable and/or unpurchable, so this is one BP vehicle you CANNOT obtain.

Bullet and Fire Proof (BFP)
Vehicle is invincible to both gunfire and fire/flames.

Vehicle
Tahoma
Mission
House Party
Complete the mission, the two BP/FP Tahoma's will be located under the Ganton bridge. They're locked, so push them to your Ganton garage and save. If you get beyond about three car lengths from them, they'll disappear, so be careful.

Bullet, Fire and Explosion Proof (BFEP)
Vehicle is invincible to gunire, fire/flames, explosions.

Vehicle
Savanna
Mission
High Stakes, Low Rider
There are two knowns ways of obtaining this vehicle.
  1. Start the mission then play the race as normal, but once you get to the finish line, stop and wait for the other drivers to catch-up. When yuh see them and/or Cesar's Savanna, pull into the finish marker to win. The other drivers may turn around and drive away or they make park. DON'T SHOOT WEAPONS, as it spooks the drivers and they drive off in franic. Instead, once you win the race and they're parked there, hit Cesar's Savanna with your car. He'll come out and attack you, simply kill him. The vehicle is locked unfortunately, so now you must push the vehicle back to your garage with another vehicle. Push the vehicle into a garage, the doors will unlock, then save.
  2. Get a Tow-Truck. Drive to where the mission start marker is. Park your truck a few car lengths back, steal the Voodoo beside one of the homes. Drive into the mission marker with it. Once the cut-scene ends, use the Tow Truck to tow your low-rider to the starting line. Once there, park your truck at the intersection behind the starting line then drive your lowrider into the starting marker. As soon as the count down ends, quickly get out of your lowrider and back into the Tow Truck. Quickly chase them down as you only have 20 seconds before mission failure. The mission will fail, but if you catch-up with them and stay with them, they'll stop at an intersection where the second check-point was to be located. Simply hit Cesar's Savanna with your Tow Truck to make him exit his car, then tow it back to your garage and save.
Vehicle
Fortune
Mission
Wu Zi Mu
There are prolly a few different ways to obtain this, but my favorite is to get a vehicle that accelerates faster then the Fortune. Start the mission, as soon as the race begins, swing to the right and force the Pink Fortune into a shed. There's only one way into this shed. Block the entrance with your car then exit. Let the 25 second count down fail the mission then use your vehicle to hit the Pink Fortune, forcing the driver out. Now, the "fun" part is that you'll need to push this vehicle to a garage. You can push it to either the safe-house in Dillimore or the safe-house in Palimino Creek.

An alternative method is to push the vehicle off the cliff into the water. Use the right analog to let the camera see the car sink in the water, wait till it sinks, then pan the camera back to track. The vehicle should reappear on the road but not drive because the driver technically has "drowned". Exit your vehicle and let the 25 second count down fail the mission. Then hit his vehicle with yours to make him exit, then push it to your Dillimore or Palimino Creek garage.
Vehicle
Eligy
Mission
Farewell My Love...
In the U-Turns of the Panopticon, push the Eligy off the cliff into the water and use the analog camera to watch it hit the water, keep watching it until it sinks, then move the cam back to the view of the road, the Eligy will reappear but won't drive anywhere because the driver has technically "drowned". Exit your car so the 25 second count down will fail the mission, then hit the Eligy with your car to make Woozie exit. Kill him, then push his car to a garage. If you push the vehicle to the east side of Blueberry Acres, there's a Tractor parked, you can use it to tow the vehicle to the garage, which could save alot of time.
Vehicle
Patriot
Mission
Phone call from Cesar in San Fierro/Big Smoke's Cash
Once Cesar phones you, a red blip will appear on your radar. This blip is a Patriot with cases in it's truck-bed. Head to Whetstone and steal a Tow Truck. Then chase after the Patriot, but don't threaten it. Just follow, it'll drive from Smoke's home to the west side of down-town San Fierro, near that building with a clock tower.

Once it arrives there you'll fail the mission. Use the Tow Truck to tow the Patriot back to your Doherty garage.

Special Note: The Patriot comes in three variations in San Andreas. Truck, Truck with cover over bed, Truck with Cloth Camper over bed.

Vehicle
Stallion
Mission
Wu Zi Mu
Easiest way to obtain this vehicle is to trap it in the loading-bay of a trucking depot after check-point 10. Once you hit checkpoint 9, you'll go over a bridge, then hit checkpoint 10 and do a quick left then right then left again. In this area you'll notice a high cement wall with two opened gates. This is the area you'll want to trap the vehicle, because if they get in there, they'll almost never escape due to the gates being opened inwards and the other gates being farther down the cement wall, therefore trapping them. Exit your vehicle and let the 25 second count down fail the mission, then hit their car with yours too make them exit. Then simply push the car to a garage.

An alternative method is to push the vehicle off the cliff into the water. Use the right analog to let the camera see the car sink in the water, wait till it sinks, then pan the camera back to track. The vehicle should reappear on the road but not drive because the driver technically has "drowned". Exit your vehicle and let the 25 second count down fail the mission. Then hit his vehicle with yours to make him exit, then push it to your Dillimore or Palimino Creek garage.

Special note. The Stallion comes in three variations in San Andreas. Convertible with its top up, Convertible with its down, and Hardtop.

Error: For some reason, garages will NOT open for this vehicle.

In the U-Turns of the Panopticon, push the Sultan off the cliff into the water and use the analog camera to watch it hit the water, keep watching it until it sinks, then move the cam back to the view of the road, the Sultan will reappear but won't drive anywhere because the driver has technically "drowned". Exit your car so the 25 second count down will fail the mission, then hit the Sultan with your car to make the driver exit. Kill him, then push his car to a garage.

Mission
Jizzy
After you drop off one of Jizzy's whores, you'll eventually have to "save" her again from a preacher. He's driving a two-toned Stretch. The Stretch can only be painted in one tone in Transfenders, so this vehicle is special in that the top half is white, and the bottom half is black. However, this vehicle is practically unobtainable. Only way to obtain this vehicle is to follow them, and destory the Stretch hopefully near your garage, then push the wreckage into it, then let the garage door close, letting it regenerate the vehicle.

Special Note: You can obtain and all Black Stretch later in the game that if you take to PayNSpray or Transfenders and repaint, the bottom half will stay black. Easier way to obtain a vehicle like this.
