In the Weeds: 1982 Mitsubishi Starion (Series 1 JA) - 4G54 2.6l

December 13, 2014

I spotted this Series 1 JA Mitsubishi Starion when I was visiting my family back in Australia in 2013. Such a great car to randomly spot, but the owner had plenty more automotive surprised locked away in his garage.

The A18 Series Starion was built from May 1982 to Dec 1990. This Starion Coupe was built in 1982. It has a 2,600cc inline 4 engine.

How does winning stuff sound?

I've set myself an ambitious target, and that is to unearth all of Japan's rusting, nostalgic gems. It's not going to be easy. They're shy creatures and prefer to remain hidden. And, limited time and funds mean they're likely to stay that way, which would be not cool! <More>
