The magical decade known as the 1990s was a great time for car buyers. Manufacturers were throwing out every zany, half-baked ideas in the hopes that they would stick like spaghetti to a wall. One of the more insane offerings made by any automaker was the 3000GT VR4 Spyder, a car that didn’t need to exist, but I’m so…
Two crossovers, an aging sedan, a fairly abysmal subcompact that feels like it’s meant only for third world countries, and a legendary rally car now living on borrowed time. That’s how things are for Mitsubishi these days. But it wasn’t always this way.
If Raphael were here, he’d ask: Many cars were made in the ‘90s. But what ‘90s car is the most ‘90s?
Much as I love delicate, small, nervous sports cars, there's something to be said for a big coupe that bludgeons the road into submission.
I love Ferraris. And I also love DSMs, especially the 3000GT, that under-appreciated beast of a car that was king of all the Mitsu-Chrysler collaborations back in the 90s. So it follows that if you put the two together somehow, the end product will be amazing, right?
We've been quite shocked by how utterly, horribly terrible Mitsubishis have been in the 24 Hours Of LeMons. Eclipse, 3000GT, Talon, Colt, whatever, it's spent more time in the pits than on the track. Won't someone find a reliable Starion and race it? We totally want to see a Starion take the overall win!
Japanese cars made up nearly half the entries at the Gator-O-Rama, with 44 out of 95 vehicles coming from the Co-Prosperity Sphere. Miatas, Celicas, and RX-7s galore, of course, but that wasn't all.
