    Unusual cross shopping

    This fellow compares an older model Space-Star to a different vehicle class entirely. He declares the space star the looser of the match, but I thought it did well, and at an unbeatable price.

    "Bit of water splash, beautiful" Gotta love the English. The old old space star came to Canada as either a Plymouth or a Chrysler I think, the funny door small minivan in the 80s. I think.

    There are some Mitsubishis that came over as Dodge clones, others didn't make it overseas. Even some Chryslers are half Mercedes at one point. Car industry is a funny thing.

    Plymouth Vista was another clone van from Mitsubishi, took some searching they were common in Europe when I visited relatives in the late 90s.

    He got this for only $247 and now it's an off-roading rig. Wow!
