I received a huge stack of Mitsubishi brochures, and this time they come from the Dutch dealerships!
Unboxing Dutch Mitsubishi brochures from the 80s and 90s!

Most of the brochures are from the 80s and early 90s, including the Cordia and the Starion. But I also couldn’t resist getting that late 90s Galant that I love soooooo much. Watch the unboxing below: Read the rest of this entry →

Family Album Treasures: Mitsubishi Cordia on vacation

February 11, 2015 in Family Album Treasures

I scanned this photo from my fathers family album, so it is literally a Family Album Treasure. 😉
The photo features my father and my brother standing in front of a Mitsubishi Cordia at our first stop somewhere in Belgium:
Family Album Treasures: my father with a Mitsubishi Cordia
As the driver side door is open you may think the Cordia is actually my father’s, but then you were tricked by the photo. The car in front of it (a white Peugeot 304 station) and its trailer both are actually my father’s. You can also find a Mazda 323 (Familia) sedan in the background and behind that something that resembles the rear end of a Toyota Celica TA40.

My father sold the Peugeot in the winter of 1985 and traded it in for a 1984 Toyota Carina wagon. I think this photo was taken in the summer of 1985 when we traveled to France with the Peugeot and the trailer. Presumably I took the photo as only the three of us went on holiday. So this really is a family album treasure. 😉

For the non-Dutchies: it states the car has been in a barn for 28 years and now after 29 years and 5 months it had 2 MOTs and 3500 kilometers on the odometer! Yes, that’s for real!

This is what the car looks like: Read the rest of this entry →
