My New Car!

After searching for a 2nd gen 3.5 liter for some time i came across this, A 1988 Mitsubishi Starion. Its in mint condition. Its a 2.6 liter turbo 5 spd. Pretty quick little car. It has a totally rebuilt engine with 15k on it. Cant tell you how many looks i get in it. But here are some pics of her and tell me what u guys think. Enjoy.

I thought it was an rx-7 at first. Damn for being that old, the exterior is in perfect shape. So shiny!!! Good luck with it - You can handle anything with a turbo.

Wow. Very nice find. Those aren't too common in the US...especially in such good condition.

wow that really looks like the 2nd gen Rx-7, or even a Porsche 944. Nice find, that thing is in gourgeous condition.

Is that RWD? I think of the Chrysler Conquest when I see those pictures. That is why I ask.

They are the same car, just with body panel differences. I think the starion is more rare in the US.

Yes the starions are really rare in the u.s. Thats why when i saw this thing i had to pick it up especially for how good of shape its in. And the reason i got rid of the trep was just due to the fact that i wanted to start a new project and make something faster.Im still looking for a 2nd gen 3.5 for cheap but i guess only time will tell.
