    Long story short I got extremely lucky. I had purchased this 2011 Miata with just 22k miles in January. Obviously I couldn’t drive it at that time and the mirage got wrecked late that month. But with Spring I’ve been driving it, and modding it extensively.
    My buddy happened to be selling the 1993 Eclipse you see above with some issues, but cheap. With the Mirage paid off before the accident, insurance money purchased the Eclipse and got it sorted for me to DD.
    I still think of buying another Mirage, but I bought the eclipse to avoid a car payment.


    2017 Mirage - track project and DD
    1990 Talon TSi - E3 16G turbo, FIC 980s, 27psi, DSMlink, tons of mods. The heartbreaker.

    I see I see. That is too bad what happened.

    But honestly I like both those cars you have now. In Canada they sold Eclipses like you have, only as the Plymouth Laser, or the Eagle Talon. People love Eagle Talons. I think it's partly because they never sold new Mitsubishis in Canada until around 2005.

    So you had to get the Chrysler clone version to get the Mitsubishi brand car. Add to that that most Eagle Talons are long gone from weather and age. So you just don't see many Eagle Talons or Plymouth Lasers on the road.

    Correction: our bars is 18mm. Just installed the prothane bushings on the stock sway bar and it fits very well.
