    Background:
    In highschool, my girlfriend and I owned two DSM's. I had a 1996 GST and she had the 98 GSX. As both our careers started to take off in 2008, we realized we needed reliable transportation. I sold my GST and bought a 2007 Chevy Impala. We kept my girlfriends GSX and she bought a 2007 Nissan Altima. The GSX has been stored away all these years with the hopes of making it a beast again one day. Our automotive shop is well established and we are financially stable so we decided to start working on the GSX. This car is meant to be a fun vehicle to Autocross, Drag, Cruise, Show off, whatever we want. If we break something, so be it. That just means we have a reason to upgrade it. The GSX is extremely clean with any rust seen being surface rust and can easily be sanded and cleaned up. Plan is to get the vehicle running again and slowly continue improving the vehicle. Following almost all Mitsubishi's the clear coat has faded and the vehicle needs a paint job. The car is also almost 20 years old and many bushings are worn. Time will tell and hopefully I'll remember to take pictures along the way.
