|Watson||Nomad lifepath only. Make progress in the Main Job “Ghost Town”|
You must have selected the Nomad lifepath during character creation to get this quest.
During the Main Job Ghost Town you’ll have to strike a deal with Rogue, after which you’ll be instructed to call and meet up with Panam. After progressing [Ghost Town] to this point you should eventually get a message from “Thorton Galena 80845” - your old ride from before you first entered Night City.
Finding an Old Friend
After getting the aforementioned message, track this quest and follow the quest trail to a junkyard in the Badlands just outside of Night City. Scan your car, then go check under the hood and examine your baby until some deranged woman shows up and yells at you. This woman, Lana, found your old discarded steed and her care and attention have brought it back from the brink. Guess it’s fate that her tinkering repaired the car to the point where its GPS could come back online. You’ve got a few options here:
- “They’re my wheels. That’s that.”: Threatens Lana into leaving, you reclaim your car.
- “You can keep the car.”: Allows Lana to keep the car.
- €$100 “Buy the car off you.”: Pays Lana pittance, you reclaim your car.
€$100 is a trivial amount to pay for some wheels, and probably less than Lana deserves for the work she’s done. She doesn’t seem to mind, and if you let her keep the car or pay her for it, she seems happy enough. Not that it matters if you bully your way back into ownership - she’s out of her depth and there’s no long term consequences. Ideally you’ll walk away from this Side Job with the Galena “Rattler” at your disposal.
Once the situation with Lana is resolved one way or another, this Side Job will end.
