Still catches my eye

2000 Mitsubishi Eclipse GT 2dr Hatchback


This is a great looking, great
sounding, pretty fun to drive car.
When I brought it home the first day,
my brother asked me if it came with a
speeding ticket. It just looks like
you should be driving it hard.

I mostly use it on weekends, but
occasionally drive it to work on snowy
days. It handles surprisingly well in
the snow.

My only doubt in buying this car is
whether it would hold up over the long
run. After almost five years, it's
still doing everything that I expect.
It's nice to have a car that still
catches my eye and makes me glad to
own it two years after it was paid for!
