    The original Mitsubishi Mirage was monumentally boring, but it was a much better vehicle than the current Mirage in just about every way possible; This is a 2000 model...

    This is a Mitsubishi Lancer Evo FQ400; Unfortunately, it was never available in America because of Federal/EPA emissions bullshit...

    The "FQ" in the car's name is an abbreviation for "Fucking Quick". No, I am not kidding!

    The Lancer Sportback; Not a bad-looking vehicle, but it didn't sell particularly well...

    I specifically discussed the 2002-2003 Lancer OZ Rally in the previous Mitsubishi thread that accidentally got merged with my MegaThread...

    Even though it looked cool, the coolness ended there! The car came with special OZ Rally wheels from the factory, as the name implied, and I do believe that it also came with a factory-installed aftermarket head unit and upgraded speakers; However, it did not have anything from the fabled Evo! Under the hood of this "All Show, No Go" car was the same 120hp 4-banger found in regular Lancers, and most had automatic transmissions...

    A few publications criticized the original Mitsubishi Outlander (sold in North America from 2003 to 2006) for being underpowered, among other things...

    However, a lot of people I know who own them absolutely love them!

    I had a 1st gen Montero. Loved that truck, but V6 sucked, and it was slow AF.

    I'll own another some day, but it would need a V8 and an SAS.

    The North American version of the Delica was just called the Mitsubishi Van; They were not available with 4WD or AWD, but I still love 'em!

    I love old Monteros! I agree with you about the V6...

    Is that actually yours in the picture? And are those 1st Gen Tundy or 2001-2004 Tacoma wheels?

    This was apparently photographed in LA, though it looks like it could be in a foreign country...
