Way Back In time there was an Hollywood car chase simulator called Driver. Then came Driver 2, adding the ability to clamber out of your car and run around the city as a stickman.

Driv3r was atrocious. Its least offense was persevering with the hideously implemented GTA3-style on-foot gunfights which hadn't worked in the previous game. Two years later, Parallel Lines tried to make amends.

This is essentially Grand Theft Auto 3 Lite. While it casts you as a criminal rising to power, a decent plot set in 1978 and 2004, car chases, and gunfights, it lacked GTA's open world.

That said, it packs a decent driving model for an arcade racer, and has over 80 vehicles that can be customised - you can pick paint jobs, tune suspension, or tweak engines. But just about every mission can be completed with a freshly stolen car, making customisation totally unnecessary.

While Parallel Lines was overpriced on release, Steam's price is reasonable. Yet, it's the same price as GTA3, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, and ToCA Race Driver 3. If you want to go on a crime spree, or go for a race, you're better off with one of those.
