Awesome it worked. Thanks

The GTO 2000GS, as a teenager it was on the short list of cars my mates and I wanted. One of the 'cool dudes' in the neighbourhood had one in blue with the rego GS2000. Curiously that rego is linked to a 2000 Land Cruiser today.

Agree a cool car, even today

Forgot, my old '61 Pontiac - looked like this* but rather rougher, tan over chocolate colour and 8x15 American Racing wheels with 255/60-15 Goodyear Wingfoot (later NCT) tyres. Repowered it with a mild Chev' 350 and, IIRC, blew the clutch twice, broke the gearbox six times, the diff twice and split the rear axle once, and it had huge drum brakes that faded badly under even mild (ab)use. For all that, loved the old banger.

These are my thoughts and opinions - sometimes I'm wrong, but not often ;-)

ALL of THEM .....

A few mostly for the nostalgia drive around the park,   >:D

but all the rest would have pride of place in my mates backyard, till I found a factory for storage ...   8)

Love/loved every single one of my cars (30 +) and miss my STUDEBAKER truck (Charlie) even more ...  :'(

nice !
did you add the flares ?
iirc the hot jdms had bolt-on flares (and exterior side mirrors on the front guards)

Yep added the flares. I had this car for years, was blue when i bought it and first thing I did was add eagers and hotwires .  As you see it there it had candy apple paint, 3 peice ROH wheels, and a 4G63 turbo engine.  Only reason I sold it was to buy a house

This thread is making me want to buy another Mitsi... I've never had a GTO - but I have had a Galant 1850 don't laugh), a 2L Celeste (I said doooooon't laugh)... a VR LE manual Magna (the best/quickest/understatedsleeprest FWD I've ever had)... and a beast of a Starion... I do miss the 80's and 90's.

And I am likely to buy another car for "me" in the next couple of months... hmmmmm...

continuing the mitsi theme ...

we had an 85 sigma turbo too ... very fast in a straightline but watchout for corners, the superlight power steering and over-servo'd brakes reminded me of an old chrysler valiant...
