My knowledge of 1990s Japanese cars is based on playing Gran Turismo on the Playstation 2.  While everyone recommended starting with an MX5 or a Mitsubishi FTO to win some rookie races, I got myself a Mitsubishi GTO on the grounds that 3 litres must be better than 1.8

 

This one is a 4x4 for maximum Japanese weird points, manual gearbox too

Later GTOs like this one got twin turbos.

However I'm not sure the number of turbochargers should be your top priority with this particular example

Currently cheap Mexican Beetle, typically the owner has spent money on custom wheels, stupid rear lights and a poxy Monza 4-tip exhaust instead of making the bloody thing run properly.

New Beetles of course are a bargain compared to the aircooled ones, I think this is the speediest type - a V5 which makes 170bhp

All GTOs were 4x4, and possibily 4 wheel steer I can't recall. Only the Yankee Dodge Stealths were available with FWD. Turbos were also available from the start. Despite the NA being fairly pointless, I like this drug dealer example;

-These look quite useful for someone (like me) who tends to carry tools but not any kind of bulky materials (they get delivered to site by the wholesalers). Wouldn't be leaving those tools in there overnight obviously.

That 1.3 CDTi motor gives me the FEAR though.....

I really like those wheels, one of the best alloys this century IMHO.
And the V5 must be worth a shot. Not so much a V engine as a squeezed-up inline, but unique and unlikely ever to be copied. More of a Lancia V4 plus one than a V6 less one.
But fark me, the rest of these New Beetles is too like the grim old mk4 Golf.....and I don't want to go there. Again.

One of the few alloy wheel designs that aspire to look like Halfords worst plastic wheel trims. Good effort.

Given that the golf, beetle and TT share common platforms would a 3.2 V6 fit in a beetle? That would be interesting

I hate those GTO's. They remind me of a time ~20 years ago when any 22 yr-old dickhead who could get a bank loan, bought an 8-10 yr old grey import one and got about 8 months use out of it before it found itself parked up behind a local garage with a popped turbo or clutch that their warehouse operative/plasterers assistant wage had no chance of clearing

Thats not quite right. The 3000GT/GTO was available with fwd on the base models, which was the case for the Stealth as well. 4WS was an option on higher spec models of the Mitsubishi, I dont think it was available on the Stealth. All years were available as Twin Turbo, I want one with a manual before they become unaffordable.

Presumably have to be chained to the roof from the wheels, a !400kg plastic car with a huge front clamshell, a targa roof and fairly large glass rear hatch isn't going to be easy.


I’m not sure its upside down, but hoisted up to the top of the container on wires to fit something below it.

I've never seen a FWD Mitsubishi specially. Was there a specific below SR? Just interested as it's always fun discovering odd ball versions of old cars.

The TV adverts show that if you've got an 8 year old child they want you to buy a new car that does self parking or opens the garage door on its own or some such bollocks.

 

When my kids were 8 they bundled half a dozen mates into the back seats of my Land Rover 110 and laughed for the whole journey, laughing even more when we parked and they jumped out from the great height.  If I'd have had something like this they'd have been the most popular kids in school
