Mitsubishi GTO Archetypal 1990's Japanese Supercar

And in the beginning...

There was a 1993 Mitsubishi 3000GT VR-4...... and it was good.

This is the continuing saga of the Mitsubishi - that has forced me to buy my 2nd GTO in 15 years....

My first awakening was in 1996, when I bought a 1993 Mitsubishi 3000GT VR-4 in the USA for (I think it was) $18,000 This was a bargain as I had just bought a car with 30,000 on the clock which was like new and less than 1/2 of the new price...

This is what paid for the beast....

What a beauty!!!

It was a truly awesome vehicle. Totally reliable, very powerful (2 tickets to prove that!), and comfortable for those long journeys I was doing.

I put 30,000 miles on the car in the 3 years I owned her, and enjoyed every minute.

Had to trade her in though, as stealer quoted me $3,000 for the 60k service and new clutch, and another $3000 for a new set of tyres. So time to try something else....
