So 80’s…

Ever since Sport Compact Car got the axe, the only magazines that I feel are of high enough quality to grace the tank lid of my toilet bowl are Japanese Nostalgic Car and 0-60.  Both magazines have great content, amazing photography and are well written.

I found these pictures of a gorgeous, stock example of the Mitsubishi Starion in the 0-60 magazine archives.  This car is the epitome of an 80’s car.  The body lines and dashboard arrangement screams Knight Rider and I am in LOVE with the seat belts.  Just imagine those “Turbo” belts strapped across your Member’s Only jacket, while jamming out to “Livin’ On A Prayer” on cassette.

*Bonus fact*  According to Wikipedia, Mitsubishi claims the name “Starion” is a contraction of “The Star of Orion”.  However, others claim that the car was supposed to be named “Stallion” and it got the “Engrish” treatment during translation.
