Hello all! Proud new owner of 32/1000 (pics here and here) After having three 1g DSM's in Colorado and an EVO IV for two of my six years in Japan, the bug bit me when I was looking at coming back to the states. I've been looking at GVR4's for about the last year or so, getting a feel for what is out there and what I'm looking for. Then I finally got a date and location for my return. It was time to start the search!

I found the great candidate in KG which I realllllly wanted but the problem was that it was in WI. So, since the military was paying for me to drive from Seattle to Texas, I made the *slight* detour through WI got some GREAT coffee from Joe and his wife and then 3,000 total miles later I arrived in San Antonio with probably the only GVR4 in the whole city. I've been driving around the last few weeks and I couldn't be happier to be back in a turbo Mitu and so much happier that it's a GVR4. This car isn't going anywhere any time soon!!

Are you the same 'Hotrod' who wrote most of the wikipedia page on E85?

I drove my GVR4 back from San Antonio to CO in 2010.

And you drove the G from WI to TX?

Welcome aboard and thanks for serving! I remember seeing that car in the classifieds, it was definitely a great deal. I'm glad to see it went to a good home.

I was thinking about the drive if it came down to it, but I ended up using a trailer. Where did you go to in CO? I spent almost 6 years at Buckley AFB in south Denver.

I like to think it went to a good home. One thing is for sure...it went to a home where it will continue to be appreciated and will hopefully be on the road for many years to come. There are a few changes that I would like to make to the car. Though, that's part of the fun of these cars isn't it?

I've had quite a few compliments on the car already One of the admirers told me, "That's one of the nicest Sentra's I've seen." lol

Mod away. Although these cars are rare, no one leaves them stock. You're right, that's no fun.

There is a resemblance to the early 90's Sentras. There is a nice 2 dr Sentra of that vintage in my neighborhood, makes me wish Mitsu made a 2dr GVR4.

A 2 door 6g Galant makes about as much sense as a 2 door '93 honda accord, or a volvo 780... all the weight and shape of a giant brick, no weight advantage whatsoever. I'm happy Mitsubishi never created such an abomination.

Yeah I really like the valve shut off haha

I have a dry erase board from my old work coming with my household goods that I'm going to use to keep track of the changes I want/need to make. Only problem is that I don't think it's big enough. I need a marker with a smaller tip lol. I'm a nitpicker. Now to just find the time!
