Hi guys, my name is Dave, and i'm a long time lover of jap rockets, and old yank tanks aswell actually! Elky has been on at me to join here for a while, finally got round to it! I own a japanese import Mitsubishi Starion 2600 GSR-VR, an australian delivered JB Starion (2LT), an australian delivered Holden/Isuzu Gemini coupe, and lastly an aussie delivered TG Gemini sedan that i recently bought from my parents. Oh and a 51 Chev thats been sitting since 1996 while i got sidetracked with my gem coupe..

here are some pics:

GSR-VR:

Hi-Po jap cars run in the family, my brother peter has an ST185 Celica GT-Four group A Carlos Sainz edition:

Sweet Dave, it should be good, I've haven't seen a nice Starion for a while now. Had one about 8 years ago now, a JB as well, a really fun car.

wicked! they're super awesome cars. kevin bartlett rates them as one of the best chassis he's ever driven. i can see why. i've owned 13 now, i actually have another one but it is a parts car. i have a business on the sunshine coast that specialises in starions, i also wreck them and send parts all over the world..

also, here's a video of me racing the widebody at gatton street sprints a couple of months ago:

there is also a video of the celica running at the same event:
