Another one of the fleet.
Mitsi Libero manual, 1500, Momo steering wheels and I fitted the mags.
:) Just a good, basic car for the family.
I bought it over 5 years ago with 58kms on it and its now at 126?
In that time all I've done to it is oil/filter changes (got it down to 13minutes) and I did the cambelt (4 hours? First of that model I've done) at 110kms.

I realise some Mitsis have reliability problems (electrics, fuel injection etc) but not ours.
Generally the older and the smaller/simpler (like any car really) the Mitsi is the better.
I had two Mirage Spacewagons before this (one very high mileage) and they were both perfectly reliable (although the high mileage ones g/box crapped :( out about 2 months after I swapped it for a friend's Subaru I did some work on and sold for a profit the moning I put it at the side of the road with For Sale on it :) )

I read about a certain model of 4wd Mirage that evo bits bolted up to perfectly. Now that would be a sleeper.

Who says the Japanese don't have a sense of humour?

I tried to change a cambelt once. Couldn't get the crank pulley bolt off. It took the garage awhile even with a rattle gun!

Yeah, doing work on cars is not short of annoyances. I've got an air ratchet (and compressor etc) but not a rattle gun so I took it to my mechanic(I just bludge off him and get wofs now :blush: ) to have him rattle it off - but it wasn't particularly tight and I could've done it at home anyway.
Re EVO The first Mirage Turbo was a really quick car for the 80s. Very light too but bad torque steer for the power so probably a few left the road.
A Libero or Lancer with EVO power but without the boyracer add ons would be a good sleeper alright.

I think one of the earlier mirages (the ugly boxy ones) had a "Cyborg" varient that was 4wd with a Stock 4g61 and I'm sure that it wouldn't have been too hard to fit the 4g63 evo motor and related bits, it would be lighter than the evo shell too!

That was the one, there was a link to a write up on nzhondas awhile back.

This is not very practical for carrying the bike. In fact I've yet to see if it is possible to get the bike in. The boot is big enough for a sandwich and not much else.

Alfa's would be fantastic if they didn't keep increasing the power through the front wheels..
