Alright got a few request for more pictures of my car. So I thought might as well start a thread instead of polluting others so here we go:

This is my first car and the reason I found myself really taking a liking to photography. Since owning the car I've done some work to it: larger turbo, installed lowering springs, opened up the exhaust, upgraded the radiator+fans, and few other misc things to the interior. Big plans are in store for her...and please bare with me the car is more then 25 years old so it has its imperfections. As do my photogenic skills. Anyway enough talk onto some of my favorite self taken photos.

Cool ride... a buddy of mine had one in High School... we spent a LOT of time working on that thing into all hours of the night.... it's amazingly easy to get a bit more boost out of that puppy.... modding the airbox was a pretty popular thing to do as well... basically just cutting a big hole in it... we ended up putting a Jasper crate motor in it because it kept dropping lifters, but it ended up being a nice car...

Good pictures too! I like the last one best.

Yea that trick is still pretty popular. I have a few little holes in mine. Haven't really touched on the motor to much as it only has 93k plus she's getting multi port injection so I'm happy with a reliable more stock then modded car for now, since it is my daily driver. As for the lifters yeah its been misconstrued that a car makes the most power at redline but for these redline should be at 5k anymore and bye bye. Got to love truck motors lol. Torque over top end.

And thank you, I think that's my favorite as of right now also. Just a little different then the average.

I had one of those a long, long time ago; late ''80s I think.
It was such a great car and I was sorry when rust finally defeated it. I think mine was about 140K on the clock by the end but it was so reliable, fast and luxurious that it was a hard thing to let go. I do remember it had a turbo lag that caught me by surprise quite a few times early on!

It's very good so see one again in such amazing condition.

Yeah these are quite unique, I appreciate your words but she does need some tlc it really isn't as mint as the pictures reveal lol.

That's a clean looking car! What motor is in it? Looks very similar to my 86 d50 I had (made by Mitsubishi) with a 2.6L 4 cylinder carbureted . 4g54b I think is the engine model.

Thanks. Its a G54B(T). I know the mighty max used it. D50 must be a variation then as well because it's a 2.6l just turbocharged with throttle body injectors.

Thanks for the continued support. ! Yes, potential certainly lies within. Especially going the route I am. Opens a whole new window for opportunity.

P.s. More photos being processed. Hope to finish them by today.

Such an awesome car. Starion = Dodge Conquest. My cousin had one when I was about 6yrs old and back then I thought it was the best car around. Nice shots.
