History
When it came time for my first car, I knew exactly what i wanted. I waited 2 extra years and pushed a piece of wood around for transportation while i saved up enough money to buy my dream car. I really wanted a VR4 but had a very hard time finding one that had decently low miles and was local enough to be practical. One day i was looking on craigslist and i saw a small thumbnail that stood out because of the vibrant green paint. I fell in love right away. It was a 97' SL being sold by the 1st owner (a man about 50 years old) with 83k original miles, a clean title, original factory paint in pristine condition, and a price tag of $7500. When i went to check it out, tears filled my eyes as i turned the corner and saw the pearl green paint and the chrome exhaust tips glimmering in the sunlight . And the rest is history.... :)

Modifications

Drivetrain
All stock other than a K&N intake and a full 3" Thermal Exhaust
Interior
No interior mods here yet, although i plan on getting a racing wheel, racing seats, and taking my back seats out.
Exterior
No exterior mods needed for these gorgeous cars other than maybe a lip kit and rear diffuser. Currently mine is all original, just the way it was when it rolled out of the Mitsubishi dealership in 1997 :)

Currently I have all original Bose Premium Speakers and a 12" Serwin Vega Sub in a Bazooka tube in the trunk running on an ancient amp (so old i dont even know what brand or model) and interfaced via a Pioneer touch screen stereo :)

Unfortunately still on original stock suspension
