Lemon Meringue: 1994 Mitsubishi 3000GT VR4

It is Pi-day today, time to enjoy a slice of lemon meringue. Tipper SecondMouse sent in the following car with some commments: Back in the day, this car, which Road and Track called "...too far ahead of its time.", was forced to stand in the shade of the Toyota Supra. The Mitsu 3000 was a technological tour de force for it's time, perhaps too much so for buyers in that era. If you have priced a running 90's- era Supra lately, you might be thinking that a car like this VR4 is a buy at this price point. You might be right, banana yellow and all. Find this 1994 Mitsubishi 3000gt VR4 offered for $7900 in Houston, TX via craigslist.

  1. Always a plus to use a pic of the vehicle you're trying to sell while it's on a jack stand.

    1. That means the floor isn't rusted out, right?

    2. The missing oil filler cap is enticing as well!

  2. Considering the fact that, pretty much every car I have ever gone to look at has looked better in the pictures than it does in person, I'm thinking this car is going to look pretty bleak. That is a lot of miles on that old tech.

  3. Looking at the air filter is totally confusing. How does air get there?

  4. It looks interesting, I think I’m about to try and play this game

  5. Dang, didn’t think my for sale ad would end up on a thread lol. Anyways, I decided to keep the car and restore it and tastefully mod it. Look for it on my IG @pikmasta
