My Story:

1994 Mitsubishi 3000GT VR4 / GTO TT

I dont even know where to start. I always wanted a 3000GT VR4. Ever since I can remember. I first got my change to drive one in Gran Turismo; LOL like many other members, and been hooked ever since. LOL

On my last year of college, I had saved up the money to get the car of my dreams, ok not really cuz thats still a Jaguar XJ220 hahaha, the second... ok fifth car of my dreams lol, and I when on a long long search for the right car. After many pieces of junk, I finally found her... a 1994 VR4 (20K asking price). it was BPU and I must say, the Volk AV3s sold me... hahaha. I told the guy I would give him 17K right there and there... but he said no and told me he had other people coming to see her... I sadly when back home... A month later... The phone rings and its the guy wanting to know if I still wanted the car. He still wanted 20, but i told him for 18 I would be there tomorrow... hahaha and so thats how I came to have my car... (short, short version)

Anyway, I been on 3SI since 2002, but I dont think I had register until later on... Sorry I lost too much time on 3kGT.com hahaha. But ever since the switch, i never been happier. Over the years I have meet so many great people... many, which I can prodly called them friends.

My car is a working progress, like many of yours... And it has seem many hard times, from my engine rebuild (blown pistons), to dead turbos, accidents, and even a break-in that cost me about 5 thousand dollars worth of parts and tools. Ever since then, I been trying to bring back my baby to its glory... 437 awhp and 464 ft-tq. Its getting there but with the purchase of my new home, its been a little harder. Anyway, I hope to make it into the ride of the month... It would be a great honor for myself and my car... Thanks in advance for your votes.

-D.
