incorrect unlock data Edit

The Kent is unlocked for doing the 2nd list, not the 3rd. The "Chop Shop" customization item is unlocked on the 3rd, not the 5th. 452 16:30, February 5, 2011 (UTC)

What is a Chop Shop customization item? The article states '3 lists: "Chop Shop" customization item (unknown)'. I got no notification of any reward after completing the 3rd list:

Miguel is the name of "The Wheel Man", I've confirmed that information in the strings file for SR1. The problem is... that's not where the information on the wiki came from. The name was first added to the wiki by User:Sfroggy1 on 2008-05-28 on a page he created called Characters met during "Activities", which I renamed to Minor Characters in 2011, before splitting the information, added the name to the Chop Shop page on 2011-08-30, deleting the page in 2011-10-27.

While it's not out of the question that Sfroggy1 also extracted the strings file, Miguel was the only not-spoken-in-game name Sfroggy1, and he got another name completely wrong, so it seems doubtful he had access to the strings file himself.

I just checked in-game, and Miguel's name isn't on the building. Perhaps a random civilian mentioned Miguel and a wheelchair and Sfroggy1 put 2 and 2 together, but other than that, it seems so bizarre that the correct information was here years before any of the other unknown SR1 character names were added.

If there is an in-game source for the name, it needs to be added to the article. -452 05:14, January 27, 2018 (UTC)

Oh, the information most likely came from the long-defunct The wayback machine only goes back to 2008-07-14, but the information then was the same as it was years later. This is also where the old incorrect Los Carnales nicknames originally came from. Apparently there was a lot of copyright infringement of Wikipedia back in the day. -452 05:37, January 27, 2018 (UTC)
