New to the boards and Mitsubishi. Long history of Nissan and Subaru road race cars, HPDE driving and instructing.

Imported this 1991 Galant VR4 from Japan a few month ago after winning an online auction back in June.

Water Pump replaced
Tensioner replaced

Mind sharing what you paid and how you went about getting it over here? Also you can upload pics directly to the forum, it's super easy.

Nice Evo 0, It really is the way to go if you can.
I have the same car in White and "Fuel" on this board has a black one just like yours.

What are your plans for the car?

Nice, however some people here think is crazy to own a JDM model in the states, and that they are better suited to deliver mail.

I have the same floor mats, I guess the Japanese love checker board stuff.

Warning, you will get some crazy looks from people when you drive it around town and am sure someone will call it a Skyline, Camry, Accord, Stanza,or even a BMW. LOL.

Yours is identical to mine right down to year, colour, options and is only a few hundred numbers away on the VIN number.

So my plan was to try and daily the car but I live in Baltimore and commute to DC for work. That commute has not been fun being that I use a Parkin garage everyday where I get a ticket and pay as I leave. So DD commuter isn't going to work out.

This is the second car I have imported, the first being a 1990 Nissan Skyline GTS4 (GTR AWD w/ slow 2.0T engine) and I sold that to a friend that made me a great offer after I did a bunch of interior and general maintenance work.

My brother andI took the car on a 1600 mile road trip 2 weeks ago, car cruised great the whole time. It's a super close ratio transmission tho so at about 120kph (75mph) we were at 4200rpm. The car is still quiet so it wasn't screaming and we averaged 22mpg in the hilly areas and 24mpg on the flat, managed 300miles to a tank at one point.

Yep, the 3.909 driveline ratio makes highway cruising a pain. When I rebuild one of my tranny's a longer 5th would be great. From what I hear they are getting hard to come by these days.

the pics were on my phone from during the maintenance service time, so its several things arnt right in the engine photo, just thrown together for a decent picture.

I had planned to take it to a more local C&C in Beltsville this coming weekend. What is the best time to arrive at the Annapolis one?

If you want parking on the dock, you'll need to be there around 8 A.M.

Well my situation has changed as of Thursday, an old lady pulled out in front of me in my daily Subaru and more then likely is totaled. So I need to sell the VR4 so I can get another daily driver since insurance may not be quick to help me out.

Going to advertise for $9500, will negotiate from there. A lot of maintenance done to the car, not the traditional buy and flip the importers do.

Why just get something cheap to hold you over? Or Daily the VR4 until insurance pays up?

I live in South Baltimore and work in downtown DC. Using toll booths and parking garage ticket machines are a total pain in the ass, not to mention the city drives on coilovers is brutal. This is just easier in the end and makes more sense.
