How to open IMG file

This one file disc image file I have, apparently an IMG, which is a large package of cars.
I tried MagicISO, said the file wasn't a cd image. Tried, WinRAR, 7-zip, and they couldn't open it as archive. GTA IMGextreactor tool said it didn't have a directory. WinZip wanted to format it. Gizmo drive couldn't read it. Alcohol 52% couldn't properly mount it. Nothing will mount or read it in such a way for me to know what all is in it nor will any extract the info out. But there are some really nice cars on there that I'd like to work with. Anything I haven't tried?

(Its an IMG designed to mod GTA, SA I think, whether that makes a difference, I don't know.

The file didn't show up in daemon's file browser as a valid image file (I guess because allegedly they have models on them, not pictures).

I also tried G-IMG, and other GTA modding tools. G-IMG said the file was empty, even though its over 80,000Kb. Most of the other tools only work when GTA is installed (and btw, its actually for IV, not SA)

The IMG tool found here can open .img archives of San Andreas, Vice City and GTA 3. And I've used it a lot and it works pretty well.

I would...but it requires that I have GTA IV, which I don't.
