In GTA Vice City Stories, circa 1984, Sunshine Autos is a small dealership located next to the Vice City Trailer Park, with a new showroom under construction next to it. Construction of the new dealership was done by T.U.M.E. Construction.
By 1986, the new showroom has been completed, with the old dealership demolished and being replaced by a vacant lot with the trailer park also being cleared and turned into a vacant lot. The dealership is bought by retired footballer BJ Smith and renamed BJ's Used Autos. However, Smith quickly runs into financial difficulties and the police begin to monitor his activities, so Smith sells the dealership to Tommy Vercetti for $50,000. Once purchased by Vercetti, the dealership reverts to its original name. Vercetti uses the showroom to sell stolen cars from four lists. Once all the requested vehicles have been retrieved, the business generates an income of $9,000.
In 1986, Sunshine Autos features a modern two-floor showroom. Outside the showroom, a ramp leads down to four two-car garages, an import garage and a Spray'n'go shop (the only such establishment in the city). Next to the import garage is a map detailing street races located across the city.
The showroom site crosses the border of two districts. The showroom itself is in Viceport but the garages are located in Little Havana.

Hi, I'm BJ Smith, tight-end for the Vice City Mambas and proud proprietor of BJ's Used Autos. Cars from all over America come to find a new home in Florida, just like you. I moved here after the draft, football, not Vietnam, even though they do have a lot in common. I noticed there was one thing missing from this great town - a celebrity endorsed used car shop. That's why I founded BJ's Used Autos. Every one of these beauties is freshly painted, they look brand new. We have new models coming in every morning, usually around 2 AM. We can get you anything, and if you see the car of your dreams, tell us - we can acquire it for you! I've taken the skills I've learned as a pro football player to the used car business: smash, grab and ride out! BJ's Used Autos - I'm tackling low prices with hot cars!
No, I'm just coming out of retirement, and preparing for my future comeback. The business wasn't too strong, and my staff took it upon themselves to get a bit more creative with the generation of wealth.
