    I recently made a thread about Mitsubishi Motors, specifically detailing how cool some of the older vehicles were, and how mediocre the current vehicles are. One of the mods was helping me merge some of my threads into one big mega-thread, and the "Mitsubishi/Shitsubishi" thread got caught up; Now it is merged with my MegaThread and I don't feel like tracking down all of the original posts and having them merged back into this one...

    Among other things, I talked about many Mitsubishi dealers across the country have become little more than glorified oversized Buy Here Pay Here lots, and how they put obnoxious commercials on local radio stations; One dealership in my area, is offering up to $30,000 credit approval on as little as $350 per week annual income, with just one dime down!

    :facepalm:

    I also talked about how truly great I thought certain Mitsubishi vehicles were, like the 3000GT, Eclipse, Mighty Max, the Montereo, and even certain variants of the Diamante and Galant. I shared some pictures that I found online as well...

    So, this my new Mitsubishi thread! Enjoy!

    This 1982 "Dodge Challenger" is actually a Mitsubishi; This model was also sold as the Plymouth Sapporo...

    Mitsubishi today can be summed up in a GIF taken from one of my favorite childhood cartoons...

    @ColoradoTJ

    Remember how I accidentally lumped the original Mitsubishi thread in with the "to be merged" threads? Well, I couldn't resist...

    I started a new one!
