I love my Laser!!!!!!

After nominating the Laser as the worst car I've ever owned, I just want to let you know how much I LOVE it!!! It's the total opposite car of the Intrepid, sometimes you need a bit of a change. 2 Door, 5-speed, hatchback, 4 cylinder, turbocharged, old, lots of mileage. Lots of minor stuff wrong with it........and it's gonna be a lot of fun to get it into good shape again. I painted the bumpers today and I'm painting the wiper arms tomorrow. Gotta make a trip or 2 to the junkyards too for various parts and a trip to the Mitsu dealership to get a new key cut.

I've gotten into 3 short 0-45MPH races in 3 days (none of which I initiated) in this thing whereas the Intrepid gets into one less than once a month. I haven't lost in the Laser yet (killed a Honda Prelude BAD).......it's quite a bit quicker than the Intrepid.

P.S. This is my 6000th post!!!

Those Laser turbos are pretty quick. I almost got one a few years back. They have killer torque steer though. Make sure you have some sticky tires!

Nice! And in pull-me-over red, too ...
Is the Laser really quicker or does it just look that way since you're sitting on the ground?

HEH, yeah, I like to call it: pull me over PLEASE red. You DO sit on the ground in this thing........it's fast.......but when the turbo fully kicks in around 3500RPM, normally it's time to wave to the other driver ;)

Congrats! The 1st generation dsms are really nice cars. If nobody has metioned it to you yet, you should definitely check out the various dsm boards. Tons of information. My roommate had an eclipse, but unfortunately it crankwalked in the winter before he could finish building it for the spring autox season. They are fast as hell for very little money. Until they start breaking. Have fun with the repairs
