Have you driven a 1998 Mitsubishi 3000 GT VR4 lately

1998 Mitsubishi

If you would like to know how the 1998 Mitsubishi 3000 operated and what was going on inside…..

GT VR4 and you’ll get a lot of reactions like that. That one came from a fellow who waved us down at a gas station outside Baltimore just to look at the car, but we heard the same thing from teenagers in Virginia, businesspeople crossing a downtown D.C. street – in fact, everywhere we went in the VR4. Some want to know what it is; those who know ask, “Do the chrome wheels come on that?” or declare, “I love your car. I love your car!”
