A chap on the JNC forums recently shared this find and purchase with the forums.

A rare Mitsubishi, in Oregon!?

How cool is that?  Not only is the Debonair a rare car, even in Japan, but it’s also one of the coolest looking cars ever built and most certainly one of the coolest cars that Mitsubishi ever made.  How odd for one to be kicking about (albeit in tatty condition) in the United States.  I can only imagine the excitement that ‘city hunter‘ had when tracking it down was similar to mine when I found my S21 locally.

I know I’ll be keeping a close eye on it.


Browsing of the forums has once more netted some amazing photos of vehicles, this time around it’s from Swedish member “Hot Rod Nisse”.  I’ll let the pictures do the talking as they’re beyond description.

Opel "Rat"

Probably my favourite of all the cars shown in the photos is this early 4th Generation Opel Kapitän.  Beautiful.  I would go so far as to say I would even take one over a 1949 Mercury Eight.  Which for me, is a pretty huge thing as the Mercury Eight is one of my most adored cars of all time.

Simple yet evocative.

Ken, Mary and the Holy Ghost?

But wait, there’s more!
