    Today is a little emotional for me, because I just found my old dream car, a rare 1999 Mitsubishi 3000GT VR4, rotting away in a garage in Texas. Will it run? Can it be built? Have I lost my mind?

                    This feels like the start of a computer game. Getting your old car back, taking it to a garage that doesn’t look like it’s been used in years. The story would be like you got sent to prison and now you’re finally out and it’s time to pick up where you left off... one race at a time.

                      4 years is nothing compared to my dad’s story. He had his dream car about 40 years ago and had to sell it. We serendipitously go on holiday 20 years later and at the motel reception, on the wall, is a photo of my dad’s car. The motel owner had just sold it to a girl so dad didn’t get to see it but the chances of finding its last owner by absolute chance, several hours from where he sold it, in a place we had never been before, before the internet was commonplace, is insane.

                                The thing that gets me about this is the gas station part. Like, he owned this car and forgot what side is for fill up?? After maybe a a few months to half a year with a car trips to the gas station isn't just auto-pilot, its muscle memory.

                                            I'm sure you probably know, and if you didn't then I'm sure you know now...but just a helpful tip for viewersas well...if you look at the gas gauge where the fuel symbol is, there's an arrow on one side of the symbol as well. This tells you which side the gas door is on. I know my mind was blown when I found out. Hopefully it does the same for someone else lol.

My 3rd was a 2016 Fiesta SE, hated it. And now I have a Kia Stinger GT, love it, will never sell it. It's like a modern 3000GT which I listed after as a child.

He's always finding some kind of way to not actually be seen on camera fixing anything really at all... Also all the videos say I'm rebuilding this rebuilding that and all that gets done is them tearing stuff apart and then abandoning the project. Basically I thibk he's a poser and king of clickbait.. I def dont like haters or hateing on people and tried to not hate on this dude but I can't ignore it.

I have the vin number and pictures of the car when we still owned it. We are the original owners and had the car for 7 years. It holds a lot of good memories even tho it’s not really anything special. Traded it in for a 14 Toyota Avalon back in 2014 and the past year or so I’ve been trying to track it down but no luck at all.

I got rid of it cause at the time i didnt know much about cars. I guess that would be my dream car cause i really would try to get another.

I'd have brought it back on a trailer. Then when I had it in my shop gone over every inch of it changed oil, gas. And all other fulids.

I've driven the VR4 a few times it was a serious car. I got to drive a brand new one and yank out the stock sound system and put much better stuff in it.
                                                                                            Yes the VR4 is a collector's car. Fast fun to drive did I say fast?
                                                                                            The first one version of that car was the stealth sould under dodges name plate. The VR4 took that a step futher.
                                                                                            I worked on the Stelth brand new also.
