Name : Daniel
Nick : GormzZ, Gormy
Age : 20
Location : Australia, Queensland
Car/s : 82/83 Maroon JA Starion (Project), 96' Honda Prelude H22 VTEC (Project), 93' Honda CB7 Accord (Daily)
Mods : Aftermarket Al Radiator, Relatively stock when bought.
Other : Am a apprentice ford technician by trade, its a bit odd to see me now own a mitsubishi as i've always been a honda/toyota/nissan person personally, can never get over the difference of hondas.. and then i love turbo 4's and 6's. Impulse buy saw me get this new starion of mine.. and to be honest i haven't regretted one moment yet! The starion seems to have high k's but i found out the other day in the owners manual that it has been basically rebuilt twice nearly! Meaning 70,000k's on the clock aint to bad and explains this great pickup! Anyway.. Have joined the website for help and aid as my knowledge for mitsu's isn't the greatest, so bare with me! :P. Hope to meet some fellow qld starion owners and eventually do a engine swap for a twin cam setup, so i will need all the help i can get :D.

Hey,

I'm new to the starion world.
Thanks to my boyfriend, I bought Spuds old car when my faithful excel gave up on life.
So now I have pretty blue ja, a car that can actually go up hills without dropping back to first!

Age: Old enough to avoid publishing that on an open forum...
Location: Garage Redzone, Queensland
Car: Ja... it's a pretty shade of blue..
Mods: Custom seat covers? <--- does that count?
Other: I'm getting really good at removing and reinstalling door trims to fix minor issues behind them!
Opinion Poll: Does anyone think carbon fibre print scoop and door handles will look a bit ostentatious on a dark blue/purple-ish starion? :P

I've seen the TURBO decal in the nostrills of the scoop that looked OK. I don't know about highlighting the whole scoop or side vents??
You can always look out for some original TURBO door handles that are pretty funky! Or place a small turbo decal on them!

Your user name is interesting! Kind of reminds me of 'Lucy in the sky (with diamonds)' ie., LSD! :P
