No knocking, no ticking, no smoking, no leaking.
The car drives and handles great.
All four tires are close to new and are matching.
The car has an aftermarket Sony CD player that sounds good.
This car is a great parts car or project car.
THE BAD NEWS:
KNOWN ISSUES WITH THE CAR:
1. BAD NOISE coming from transmission and/or clutch.
Clutch kit is brand new from O'reilly auto parts, and it has a lifetime warranty.
Receipt for clutch kit is included, so it can be swapped out for a new clutch kit.
The noise is present at all times when the engine is running,
but goes away when you push in the clutch pedal. Comes back when you let pedal out.
I think its possible the new throwout bearing is bad, or the input shaft bearing on the transmission is bad.
It may be something else, I dont know. Im not a transmission expert.
The transmission shifts fine through all gears.
2. NO AC BELT- this likely means that AC compressor is bad.
3. DRIVERS DOOR WINDOW IS BUSTED OUT- Replacement (used) door glass included but not installed.
4. Interior is pretty dirty. Needs a thoroughly vaccuuming, and plastic/vinyl surfaces need cleaned.
Small tear in drivers seat upholstery.
5. Some dents/dings on body. Theres a ding where the front emblem is,
also a ding on rear of decklid, and a pretty good dent/scrape on drivers fender and door.
Some cracks in front bumper cover. See pics.
6. Fuel filler neck was rusted through, and has a piece of plumbing pipe spliced in.
It serves its purpose and does not leak.
DUE TO THE UNKNOWN CLUTCH/ TRANSMISSION NOISE

If you're keen to get a closer look at the upcoming Mitsubishi Attrage global sedan, we've got good news for you. A handful of brochure images have made their way to the web courtesy of IndianAutosBlog.com, complete with driveline details. The compact car looks to have its teeth set on taking a chunk out of the Nissan Versa. The Attrage will launch in Thailand with a 1.2-liter three-cylinder engine good for 76 horsepower coupled to either a five-speed manual transmission or a continuously variable transmission. The combination should yield a range of around 570 miles with an 11 gallon tank. We'll save you the math: that's over 50 miles per gallon, though we wouldn't be surprised to see a more powerful, less efficient engine show up on the US-spec model. Buyers can also enjoy snazzy 15-inch alloy wheels.

Expect to find a rearview camera, push-button start, Bluetooth audio and automatic climate control indoors. This information gives us a pretty good idea of what we can expect from the car once it touches down here in the US, though final details - including powertrain - remain likely to change somewhat.
The '80s is just far enough away now that it no longer seems like an era defined by Reagonomics and neon clothing. Filmmaker Matt Clark has embraced the look of the music videos of the decade in his new short film titled Orange Orchid, set in 1987 in Chiba and Yokohama, Japan. The video features some great sports coupes of the time and is set to the song I Know There's Something Going On from Abba-alum Frida (along with drumming and backup vocals from Phil Collins).

Clark really embraces the pop-culture look of the era's videos with big hair, a healthy dash of neon, inexplicable smoky rooms and big, over-wrought movements. However, the real stars for us are the pair of '80s sports coupes that also kind of personify the main characters. Nijo in her denim jacket has a modded Camaro Z/28 with huge, dished wheels sticking way out past the fenders. Naturally, the Chevy also features some great butterscotch paint and a car phone inside. Alex, the guy pursuing her, forgoes any obvious upgrades in favor a clean, all-white Mitsubishi Starion to go along with his tailored suit and giant cell phone.
We wish this video featured the cars a bit more prominently, but that drumbeat from Collins on this forgotten 80s gem is pretty fantastic, too. Give it a listen in the video.
Quick Corners And Long Goodbyes
Editor's Note: While driving the Mitsubishi Evolution in the slush and snow of a Michigan winter is a fine enterprise, photographing it in such conditions is usually not fruitful. That's why you'll notice a slight disparity between our wintry text and sunny, California-based photographs of the subject car. Rest assured, both the review vehicle and the photo car are of the same basic Evo GSR flavor.
It was a dreary, gray, barely sufferable winter morning in Ann Arbor, MI. Temperatures hovering just over 30 degrees allowed for snow or rain or some combination thereof at a moment's notice, and the thickly clouded sky hinted at dark secrets while promising nothing. I've never been a rally driver but I couldn't help but feel that this murky, imprecise day was good winter rally weather. I'll admit: I don't usually wake up and look out the window to judge which kind of racing would be best just then, but the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X GSR delivered to my house the day before was coloring the mood of the hour; most of my thoughts ran to where I was going to drive it, when, and how fast.
