Saw my project car get hauled away last night to be scrapped. Good clean, rust free 1997 Mitsubishi Mirage. Originally a 1.8 liter manual trans econo sedan. But I don't care. I loved it. It is my 4th or 5th fifth generation sedan. They are light, nimble, and fun to drive.

It was a candidate for a 6A13TT engine swap. But I lost "umph" once I pulled the 4g93 out of it. Drove it for about a summer, and loved it.

I was going to have someone else take over the project for me. But he could not get down here before we moved to pick it up. I had no way to move it to the new house since it was missing rear trailing arms and suspension.

I was a little upset. But I'll get over it. It was just a car...right?
