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 →

Picture of the week: Mitsubishi Lancer Turbo cutaway drawing

August 7, 2014 in picture of the week

If I had to choose one single Mitsubishi from their entire lineup as my favorite I would definitely answer the Mitsubishi Lancer Turbo. Today I got reminded of this awesome car and thought it would be nice to share a cutaway drawing of it:

Input needed: tough choice to make

September 3, 2013 in choices

It has been a while since I posted on the blog. First there was my vacation that came in between (yes I still have a shitload of pictures to post!) and then I had to catch up with various things at my work and finally this weekend it was my son’s birthday celebration that came up. So finally I have some time again to post stuff here.

First of all my latest struggle is to replace my current daily driver with somewhat more decent car. In the very rare occasion I would buy a new car, which one would be the best choice of these two?

Honda Civic 2013
2013 Honda Civic Sport (so not the Type R displayed here!)

or…

Mitsubishi Lancer Sportback 2013
2013 Mitsubishi Lancer Sportsback (so no EVO either!)

The Lancer is a lot cheaper than the Civic but decreases in price a lot earlier. Lancer is a lot bigger (and roomier) while the Civic is more agile. Also the model of the Lancer is already six years old while the Civic has only been one and a half year on the market. If I sit in the Civic and Lancer and compare the two I have the feeling there is a gap of 8 years between them.

So…can you help me out with this tough choice so I can free my mind and start posting stuff again! 😉
And no: I can’t buy both of them!

A bit different this time is that I actually managed to embed the video: Read the rest of this entry →

Wrecked: ducktaped Lancer Turbo

June 21, 2012 in wrecked

In contrary of the previous wrecked Skyline GTS-t HCR32 this owner is actually quite sad about his loss… Obviously he only acts like that. 😉

It doesn’t state how it happened, but it mentioned it happened somewhere April 2006

Japanse Autosport Festival: the classics

May 4, 2012 in jaf2012

I think many of you have waited for this: the classics at the Japanse Autosport Festival!

The best classic on the terrain was this original Dutch 1977 Honda Civic SB parked in the parkinglot:

As you can see it is in perfect condition and I could not find a spec of rust on it. It also has been fitted with a set of periodically correct vintage alloys.

The only comment I can give is that it was missing one small thing: Read the rest of this entry →
