also there is more to the mystery you left out there is a x above the writing for some reason and after the writing there is 5 xs that has to mean something also

also the docks just cost 250k so that cant be it and that mission just pops up after i bought the docks with trevor after i had beat the game mostly and on mike and frank i am pretty sure both stranger missions popped right away so it didnt take the 500k to get those strangers im almost 100% sure.

Isn’t this where you push the car off the cliff in the final storyline mission? Maybe it has something to do with that?
