After much searching on ebay, craigslist, dsmtuners and a host of used car websites the past year I finally was able to find a 2G '98 GSX in good condition for a decent price. Honestly I should've bought one of these instead of buying 04MOJOGT's car last year but I was blinded by the fact I already had an SDS and rebuilt motor for the 3G plus my car knowledge wasn't where it is today.

The car was in Rochester, NY which is about a 6 hour drive one way from Queens, NYC. Needless to say a friend and I drove up there around 1:30am and brought the car back this afterrnoon arriving home at 4:30pm. This is the actual Craigslist ad for the vehicle: ** SOLD** 1998 Mitsubishi Eclipse GSX Turbo AWD The owner also owned a 3G before buying this car. She had this for a year and bought it from someone who owned it for 8 years. The car is in GREAT shape. She also threw in a good amount of mods for free. She is a real nice young woman who to my surprise was also really attractive. So anyway now I have a "winter vehicle" and a new project. Here are some quick pics I took of the vehicle before the the sunset.

A hassle free sale completed.












It's been a LONNNNNNNNG day and fatigue is now setting in.

Wow that looks nice. I could never buy a modded GSX/T because of what people have done to them. That looks very very nice though. Love the color. :yesway:

Very nice 2g. I never see any 2g's in that color around where I live, let alone a GSX. I would like to see where this is going. :)

Thanks! The only mods done were the Magnaflow exhaust, an AutoMeter boost gauge with pillar pod, B&M short shifter, HID kit, Tokiko suspension, Cams and Cam gears (I guess that is a lot). The other internals of the motor and tranny are still stock, but you know that's getting upgraded. Trust me, now seeing what Luke is going through right now with his 3G I was very weary of buying a modded vehicle but lots of the good stuff had yet to be installed. Check out the link I posted of the ad.

:lmfao: Technically I have 3 cars but the hardtop SDS I'm selling.

Well I never said "winter project" just that this will be my winter car. It will be a project in the future however. The roads are usually taken care of pretty quickly in the winter but my motivation for buying this car and 04MOJOGT's at the time was that I don't want to put my Spyder's roof through a winter beating. I've done that before and have learned a hard lesson from it. I wanted a hardtop during the cold winter season.

You're 100% right that's why I'm selling the entire car, whole or in parts. At the same time I'm not going to give the performance parts away. I'm not asking for top dollar. I'd like to think I'm reasonable when it comes to my prices for certain items.

The build that PharmEcis is doing on the Spyder is still ongoing. Nothing has changed about that. The Spyder is my true love! :wub: :lol:

Thanks! Are you familiar with Elmgrove Park? There's a collision shop which is the first building you see when you enter the complex. Like less than 2 miles from I-490 west. That's where the owner works at.
