My Stupid Cheap Mitsubishi 3000GT VR4 Is Way Worse Than I Thought

Bargain hunting is fun. It’s the act of finding something that someone has apparently undervalued and using it for its original purpose, but for a fraction of its original price. However, as is the case with my criminally cheap Mitsubishi 3000GT VR4, sometimes one man’s junk is just junk, no matter how much you convince yourself that treasure is one vacuum and polish away.


Recently, I posted my purchase and tow home of what I thought was the worst Mitsubishi 3000GT VR4 in the world.


Fortunately for my ego and unfortunately for my wallet, I was right on the money with my assessment. The car was a bone stock 1991 model that had sat for four years, had one resilient mouse live its entire adult life in the engine bay, and had an insanely unsafe fuel pump modification installed by a previous prospective buyer. The seats were ripped, the fuel was beyond varnished, and there was a bit of mold coming out of the vents. The phrase “total loss” would have been several steps up from the condition of this purple pile of crap.

Now, through the wonderful medium known as video, I get to walk you around the car and explain how this might just be my most insane project to date, detailing exactly how close this car was to blowing the fuck up. Spoiler alert: very.
