    Mitsubishi's sports cars (two big pictures)

    Taken at the All Mitsubishi Meet in Lawrenceville, GA today. Mitsubishi through the ages.





    Used Tilt Shift on them to get that cool focus effect.

    I'm a little surprised the American cars like the Eclipse aren't shunned by the diehard Mitsubishi guys... :P :P

    here is one for you. A friend in I decided to go down to the late night drags for some racing. We ended up finding all these guys who had the same idea down there I was the black one. I ran a 13.69 that night. The super clean red one was down around 12.9 the super clean yellow one was doing about 13.9, and it had mpi and a lot of things wrong lol.

    We took this pic in the drag staging lanes at closing time that night. I love the pic Thats my old matte black drifter dragger beater I think every car but one raced that night too.



    another pic, with a actual meet at PIR. Crappy pic


    Pic of my old 1jz car while it was snowing.

    the arrow and the starion look so much less alike sitting together.

    the pics you posted in the racing thread look sooo much like the rally starion it isn't even funny.


    CH.. funny how I have seen every one of those pics you posted.

    I'll post a few more pics.

    Here's a shot from the front.



    And from the rear.



    And from a quarter-angle.



    I also uploaded the undoctored pics, you can check those out here:

    Yeah Zukiru, up close the Starion and Lancer Celeste are wildly different. It's even more amazing when you keep in mind that the first Starion was released in '83 and the Celeste's last year was 1980, so there's just 3 years difference between the two models.

    That Eclipse in the picture looks like an abortion.

    For some reason the Arrow looks the most toy-like after the tilt-shift, but that's cool!

    Hi AJ,
    To my eyes the Tilt-Shift makes these look like one of the best sets of 1/24th scale models I have seen.
    Very interesting effects.
