Thoughts on my next car..

I think my text fun car will be a Mitsubishi 3000GT I really like the look of this car.
Low to the ground wide stance and curvy. There's a trim called VR4 it's AWD, 4 wheel steering and twin turbo.. How could you go wrong with that? Perfect wintertime car in Alaska

Re: Thoughts on my next car..

Just be forewarned...VR4's are EXPENSIVE as hell to work on. And they generally require a very specific area of expertise. Also, parts are hard to come by.

People are gonna shoot us for talking about imports on here lol. But I have always and will always be a die hard supra enthusiast. So my suggestion would be to buy a supra tt instead. IMO they look far better and have enormous amounts of potential performance wise and cosmetically

Dyno queens. They make ridiculous power; however, they drive like tanks. Supra's don't put the power to the ground very well & they handle like crap.

Re: Thoughts on my next car..

Steer clear of the VR4's. as stated above they are a pain in the backside to find parts for, and they are notorious for shatty motors. If you are looking for a fun AWD car look at the following two vehicles.

MazdaSpeed 6
white

white and blck leather interior... mmmmm


Audi TT 220

Supras are amazing cars, my buddy bought an eclipse GSX and it's pretty sweet.. But for a tuner I really like the appearance of the 3000GT VR4 or not. Something about it appeals to me. Of course not as much as a mustang but I've already got one of those I gotta mix it up a-little and I'd rather not risk the stang in the snow and a tuner haha if you ruin it.. Its not a big deal haha but working on it would be a Bi**h

Yeah inline 4 is what I thought literally the best engine you can get more intense force induction our muscle cars don't handle forced air induction too greatly it wears our engines much faster.. Or so I've been told
