- "Now that we have things in the Row under control we can get back to the plan. I had that truck you jacked fixed up good as new. Load it up with a crew and drive it right into the Carnales production plant. When you get inside, hop out and take the place over."
- — Dex to The Protagonist, outside Samson's garage.
Troy and Dex, outside Samson's garage, discuss the plan of attack on the Carnales' main drug plant. The truck that Troy and The Protagonist stole will be used as a Trojan Horse to ambush the Carnales and take the plant over. As The Protagonist leaves, Dex reminds them not to destroy the lab itself, as Dex wants to use it to deal drugs himself. The Protagonist then leaves in the truck with some 3rd Street Saints, heading to the Pilsen neighborhood.
With help from the 3rd Street Saints in the truck, The Protagonist manages to secure the Carnales' drug plant. At the Lopez Mansion, Manuel Orejuela notes his concern to Hector Lopez, who attempts to cover what has actually happened, stating he is still in control.
- "What about this gang from Saint's Row? [...] Your father would have killed them all by now."
- — Manuel Orejuela
The following text has been transcribed verbatim from the game files, and can be read in-game upon completion of the mission. To do this, pause the game at any time during gameplay, go to the 'INFO' tab, and select 'Story'.
With the Row back under control, Dex explained his bold plan to infiltrate and capture the Carnales' drug production plant. You took the stolen delivery truck, now repaired and filled with Saints, to the Carnales plant. Once inside, you and the Saints emerged from the truck and took the Carnales by surprise, securing the plant as property of the Saints and crippling Los Carnales in the process.
This mission is generally easy in terms of gameplay, featuring weapon combat on foot. The player is automatically assigned some homies upon reaching their destination if they have none. While the mission is straight-forward, players should keep an eye on their health and keep it high with food, as players can easily die from fires and stray explosives, like Pipe Bombs, Molotov Cocktails and explosive barrels.
The explosive barrels found littered around outside the plant can be shot, destroying the flooring some enemies are using above, thus killing them easily. Despite what Dex says in the opening of the mission, the player may destroy anything in and around the drug plant without consequence. Upon completing the mission, the player is awarded the Pilsen neighborhood in the Factories District, where the plant is located in.

"The Classics Never Die" cutscene Edit
Dex: "Shit Troy..."
Dex: "If you wanted to know, all you had to do was ask."
Troy: "I did."
Dex: "Well, I guess you did, ain't that a bitch. Now that we have things in the Row under control we can get back to the plan. I had that truck you jacked fixed up good as new. Load it up with a crew and drive it right into the Carnales production plant. When you get inside, hop out and take the place over."
Troy: "Not exactly the most original plan..."
Dex: "There's something to be said about the classics. Remember what I said. Take the place over, don't blow it to hell. The more shit you blow up, the more shit we have to replace once we're running it."

Manuel Orejuela: "That one of your drug labs was shut down."
Hector Lopez: "One of our couriers thought he could cut the shit out of his deliveries. It looked like we were missing a lot of product, it really was just this pendejo. Angelo took care of him."
Manuel Orejuela: "And the drugs?"
Hector Lopez: "Found."
Manuel Orejuela: "What about this gang from Saint's Row?"
Hector Lopez: "A bunch of mulas, a nuisance, nothing more."
