My story:

My 3000GT/Stealth experience began back in 2002. That was the year I purchased my first 3/S, a pearl blue 1994 Dodge Stealth. It was a base model, automatic with a SOHC. I joined 3Si November 2002, as StealthxStyle. I began learning all about the cars. I now had my eyes on owning a Twin Turbo model 3/S.

After a year of owning the base model, I decided it was time for an upgrade. After months of searching I was able to find my next project, A Sandstone Grey Mitsubishi 3000GT VR-4. I knew from the start that this was the one. When I bought the car it had a few upgrades (mainly ATR exhaust and intake) but since then I have added a few more. I have big plans for the car this year (mainly turbos, fuel & supporting mods). In my opinion, a car is never complete because there is always room for improvement and more modification.

I love everything about the 3/S platform and it's enthusiasts. 3/S owners are truely passionate about what they drive, we respect our cars and represent what they are all about. I don't think I'll ever find another platform that I like as much as the 3000GT/Stealth.

Thanks, and enjoy the pics.
