Jerry Martinez to Victor Vance

Truck Stop is a mission in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories given to protagonist Victor Vance by gun runner Phil Cassidy from Phil's Depot in Viceport, Vice City.


Victor drops by Phil's Depot to get some work but is encountered by Jerry Martinez, who reminds him of the pecking order. Phil and Victor leave to collect some guns being transported around Vice City, but first a paranoid Phil tells Victor to go to the Beachcomber Hotel to pick up some back up. At the Beachcomber Hotel two men enter the vehicle and they begin to close down on the truck.

When Victor gets close enough, the two men and Phil kill the three passengers on the back using their sub-machine guns. Victor pulls in front of the truck, blocking its path and allowing Phil to steal the truck. Phil decides to take the truck to his place, with Victor and the two men acting as protection. After three waves of attackers driving in Admirals, Phil manages to get the truck back to his place in one piece.

Victor Vance goes to see Phil Cassidy at his depot, where he finds Phil smoking with his former sergeant, Jerry Martinez.
Martinez: Hey, look who it is! Victor Vance! What's going on, amigo? You want some smoke?
Victor: Fuck you, Martinez.
Martinez: Relax, you're so fucking histrionic! It's like hanging out with a bitch on her period.
Victor: You want me to fuck you up?!
Martinez: Whatever, baby. The thing is, you work for Phil, and Phil - Phil works for me. Which makes you... my bitch's bitch. Figure that out.
Phil: (coughs) Man, that shit is heavy...
Martinez: So you had better play nice if you wanna get paid, huh? Because if you don't get paid, who's gonna look after your sick brother?
Victor: Fuck you.
Martinez: (chuckles) Ay, change the record, baby. "Fuck you, fuck you, fuck you!" What did you expect me to do, huh? I didn't screw you over for fun, I was saving myself, and you would do the same. And don't pretend otherwise.
Victor: I had a career!
Martinez: So what? You got kicked out of the army...big deal. Hey, I told Phil about some guns I can sell if you can get them, hm?
Martinez snatches a joint from Phil.
Martinez: Phil, don't smoke too much of this shit, huh? It'll make you trip out, get paranoid.
Phil: Sure, later Jerry.
Martinez leaves. Phil picks up his Micro SMG.
Phil: Come on, Vic. This should silence any asshole following me.
Phil and Vic head outside.
Phil: We're gonna need some backup, Vic. I know some guys that'll help.
Phil and Vic get into a Perennial and head to Beachcomber Hotel.
Phil: Are we being followed? We better not be being followed... I'll rip those bastards' livers right out of their sides.
Victor: Chill out, man. There ain't no one following us.
Phil and Vic arrive at the hotel. Two of Phil's friends get into the back seats of the Perennial.
Phil: Hey fellas, c'mon! We're gonna make some money. They're good guys, Vic: just always so quiet... (belch) maybe I shouldn't trust them.
Phil and Vic find the truck with guns, and Phil and his friends take out the armed passengers on the back before blocking the truck's path.
Phil: (belch) I'm gonna take the truck back to my place. Anyone follows me, you give 'em hell.
Phil drives the truck back to his depot as Vic and Phil's friends escort him, eliminating any enemies that come in Phil's way.

Video Walkthrough


  • The pink Perennial seems to be explosion proof as it is possible to remain close to the enemy vehicles when they explode and the car will not explode with them.
  • In the Spanish version of the game this mission is called "Chorizando a los Cholos" ("Chorizing the Cholos), despite the Cholos not appearing in this mission.
  • The enemies share their models with regular pedestrians (or more precisely, Street Criminals) found around Vice City. They also appear in some other missions, also as enemies because they are affiliated with Jerry Martinez, and for that reason, they are called Martinez' Crew.
