    Some pics for the 80's Mitsubishi fans

    Hi guys,

    A few years back a bunch of us got together and had a Sigma day ( galant for the overseas market ). Was a great day and here are some pics of the cars that cruised with us.





    Unfortunately this one didn't have the original Astron - it had a 13B turbo rotary in it!!




    Hope ya like em

    Great pics! Do you have any closeups of that light blue one on the left and the hi-roof wagon in the back? I have a soft spot for wagons. And emus!

    Sometimes I find myself wondering how much it would cost to import a cool non-US car into the country. Those old lancers are one that often crosses my mind! Different than anything available here but mechanically similar enough to a Starion/Conquest to maintain with out to much difficulty!

    Awesome pics! :shock: I was kind of hoping to see some Starions in the pics though.

    Wish I could have come, there aren't many RWD Sigma/Galants in the UK, leaving me to potter around in mine alone (looking conspicous).



    What are the wheels on the yellow one?

    The day was set up as a Sigma day so unfortunately no Starions attended. There aren't alot of them getting around here these days. Both the wagon and blue GJ/GK Sigma were people who rocked up on the day because we advertised on the net so unfortunately I didn't get any more pics of them. Now that I'm on this site and I know there is an interest in them, I'll keep an eye out at car shows etc. The 80's Mitsubishis are ridiculously common here as until only last week, we had a Mitsubishi factory 30 minutes away!

    In terms of wheels, not sure what the Yellow one has . The ones on my white wagon were Standard GH Turbo Rims made by Globe wheels. As only 500 GH Turbos were ever made, the wheels themselves have a bit of a cult following. Lucky for me I still have a spare set

    Yeah I have a buddy over in OZ used to own a Starion, he even said they're pretty rare.
