Miss my VR4

1991 Mitsubishi 3000GT VR-4 Turbo 2dr Coupe AWD
I owned this car for about 12 years. I recently traded this in with a heavy heart. No other car compares to this baby. I got a 7 series - but guess what - I miss my VR4. Imagine that. The 7 is sweet - but the VR4 is a BLAST! Handles like a dream - oh and I have had it on some very curvy roads in Missouri. Sticks to the road. And acceleration - you say jump and it flies. I have had my share of tickets - and sometimes the cops could not believe their eyes. Those were the days - that was THE CAR!
The handling, the acceleration, the looks. HEART THROB!!
The 91 came with an interference engine. That means, if your timing belt fails, your engine is shot. Make sure to replace the belt every 70k or so miles. Also, my gear box failed. Cost me 5k to replace it. Then I turned around and sold my car for $2.5k after a year. That was stupid on my part.
