Quoting Jason G.:

Nice find. I'd love to have that work space.




Thanks Jason, it's the garage that I had been planning and working toward for a long time.

Quoting Alpha Male:

Tom,

Looks like a few original owner cars popped up at once, I recently got my hands on a pair of them, you might enjoy the story: click

now someone needs to find a single owner, all stock kensington grey and we'll have an example of all four of the vr4's sold in america




Hi Joshua and thank you for that link. I'm not sure how I missed that thread, but I hadn't seen it and it was a great story. Most of all, congrats on the find! It's amazing to me that these cars are hiding out here and there in good, stock condition! I know I was shocked to find one.

I really wish I would've gotten a picture of my car with the original owners. It's still possible though, as they want to see the car when it's all cleaned up. I'll have to do that next time out. Good luck with your car!

Thank you for the kind words and sorry about that! GNs are such cool cars though, I never stopped wanting one ever since I saw it back in 87.

Yeah, I've caught a metric ton of crap for selling that car! Someday I'll build my V8 Miata, I'll just need more spare time for a project like that.

In other news, going to South Hills Village when I was a kid was a BIG DEAL! That was basically our family vacation.

Tom, you failed to mention your awesome Mazda van . I've enjoyed your videos for a while now and I look forward to this build. I know that no corners will be cut and it will get the love and attention that it deserves. Congrats on finding an even more rare one too, coming from the original owners.

I finally got some time on the racing simulator earlier today! Of course I took the Galant for a drive...


I love the detail in Forza. I sure hope the new Forza still has a Galant in there.

Hi Tom!

Discovered your YouTube channel through this thread, and i am enjoying the heck out of it. That RCLS bit...Awesome It inspired me to start a support group in my community. Really helped me make it through the grieving that came with the pedal assembly rebuild.

Hey TOM. I just wanted to say welcome to the forum, but most of all

FUCK.
YOU.
I hope you get killed by a thousand cockroaches crawling down your throat while you sleep. (ok, not really)


Having said that...

You've got a very nice looking 91. It looks like you got it 100% stock. It's got a sunroof, and it's white. It's clean, and I'm jealous. I post this on my "garage PC" as i'm standing next to my KG 92 that's waiting for the BC RM coilovers that are on the way as well as a new mani-turbo gasket and maybe a new oil feed line/filter. I look over and just wish it was a 91 and white with a sunroof... and without a somewhat crumpled spot in the floorboard (that nobody else can see or would know about) from some dickwad putting a jack in the wrong place at some point during the car's life. You've got a 1g Talon just like the one i wish i still had, and you had a turbo mirage like i've always wanted. You sir, can go fuck goats, because i am fully jealous of your shitty mitsubishi vehicles.

Very nice. Keep posting pictures. Good luck with the restoration/build, and if you ever want to sell either of those cars... just don't. You'd regret it.
