After finishing the missions "No.1" and "Smackdown", you will get a call from Brucie and he will tell you that his friend Stevie is looking for some cars. Shortly after, Stevie will send you his first text message with a picture and the approximate location of a car that he wants you to get. You're supposed to find it with the aid of the picture. Here's a link to a map that will make it easier:

Once you have got the car, you have to drive it to a garage in South Bohan, close to your second safehouse. The garage is marked as a car on your in-game map. Your payoff will depend on the constitution of the car. Here is a list of the maximum payoffs for each car:

Turismo 36,300$
Cavalcade 23,100$
Cognoscenti 29,700$
Sentinel 7,750$
Rancher 8,250$
Sultan 11,550$

Dukes 7,260$
NRG 900 8,250$
Banshee 26,400$
Comet 19,800$
Rebla 11,550$
Coquette 13,530$
Faggio 2,130$
Super GT 36,300$
PMP 600 10,560$
Patriot 16,500$

Moonbeam 7,260$
Washington 7,260$
Contender 8,250$
Voodoo 6,600$
Sabre GT 8,250$
Dilettante 6,600$
Manana 3,960$
Freeway 6,600$
Bobcat 8,250$
Intruder 8,550$
Infernus 33,000$
DF8-90 5,940$

If you damage your car on the way, you can have it repaired at a Pay'N'Spray to still get the maximum payment.
Be prepared for cops when you break into a car, especially if it has an alarm.
DON'T TRY TO KEEP A CAR THAT YOU LIKE!!! I did this once on my first playthrough back when I played this game on the Xbox because I thought the car would respawn, but I can assure you, IT WILL NOT.
There tend to be longer gaps between texts the more cars you have delivered. It usually takes around 6-10 in-game hours until you get the next text.
If a car is not there, drive around a little and then go back to see if it has spawned. What I noticed is that if you come by cab, which I did a lot, and you set the marker directly onto the car, it sometimes won't show.

Last but not least, I recommend doing this in between other stuff and not leaving it as your last chore because that way there will be less waiting. I personally did this along with the pigeons and the stunt jumps because that way you won't have to wait and it also saves you game, whereas the pigeons don't, so you won't have to save the pigeons manually.

Once all vehicles are delivered, you will get 2% towards your 100%, you will unlock this achievement and Stevie will accept any vehicle at his South Bohan garage in exchange for cash.
