Possible new easter egg.

I haven't looked around on the web for this, but here goes. On middle island, there is a car shop called 'Grotti'. It is around the corner from your safehouse on Albaney Ave. The name 'Grotti' is the last name of a New York mob boss named John Grotti. He was arrested in '93 or '94 I think for charges like murder and racketeering. I'd like to thank the National Geographic Channel for helping me out with this. They had a documentary about him and his crime family. I'm pretty sure this was the person R* was referring to.

Edit: The mobster's name was 'Gotti' not 'Grotti', but this is most likely who R* was referring to.

Sorry but everyone knows about the grotti showroom, but still interesting to know where they might have got the name from.

Correction, the former mafia leader of the Gambino Family was named John Gotti. I can understand your interpretation with R* adding an R to it.

I corrected myself above in the edit Anywho, the reason I think this is who R* is talking about is because they did this sort of thing in the past. They like to flip around names and stuff. As most of you might know, Ray Liotta was the voice of Tommy Vercetti and in Vice City Stories, you can find a billboard that advertises something called Ray the otter, a cartoon character or something. See what i'm saying.

sweepcat9 is an unknown quantity at this point
It's just a play on the English word 'Grotty' meaning shoddy or poor. It's a sarcastic play on words as obviously the cars are meant to be top quality
