This tutorial will teach you how to manually install cars into GTA: VICE CITY using GGMM program.
First step is download a car from the internet, i used this
neuralite as an example.
download and unpack the car archive (may be zip or rar)
go to ggmm in your game's directory, click on the manual car installer
open the car's readme file and search for text lines that are supposed to go into "default.ide", "handling.cfg" or "carcols.dat":
copy & paste them into right places in the car installer:
go to the folder where you extracted and drag dff, txd and col files into their places in the window:
alright, we are ready to go, click install and watch the installer do all the work for you.
oh no, we're not yet there, an error! we must install
dmagic1 wheelmod first! do it right away, you are given all instructions where to get it.
now go and see the new car you just installed:

now we can see the car properly in ggmm and we avoided any possible errors if gta wouldn't like the mixed-format txd, you can also preview different color versions of the car:
And here is the car, finally in your ingame:
