    Yep, as far as I know I'm the only Evo that has shown up. It's usually a bunch of FRS/BRZ's, Miatas, and a couple WRX and STI's.

    2006 Evo IX MR 1st owner here..bought from HB Mitsu.. roughly 123k on Evo IX due to freeway miles to and from prior work. Now it is garaged and sees daylight once a week if that.

    Wassup Macky...long time man..You've seen my car, since then I've probably put on like 300 miles tops since the last time we had that Sunday meet years ago.

    Still in the air if I want to sell it. Paint and everything is well maintained but my DD now is a Prius. Gotta love that 87 octane pricing and MPG!!! lol

    Smog is due soon. How is everyone doing on that with the new regulations?

    I bought my 'o5 GSR just before Christmas 2004. I have just over 100k miles on it, it is currently getting a fresh engine rebuild and will more than likely be going up for sale in the very near future.

    Sup man! Yeah it's been a while. I need to set up a meet before MOD. Been hard especially with a new baby.


    I get crap since my X MR sees daylight once a week too. But that's only because I open the garage door. Truth be told it's still not broken in. 665 miles as of today. 2013 MR. I drive it long enough to heat the fluids and transmission/engine oils but other than that, its stays garaged.


    Don't sell it if you can help it man. Im keeping mine despite the baby. and my DD is a sportback ES. it doesnt get as good gas milage as a prius but its better than the Evo and Corvette combined LOL

    yep C7 Grand Sport. people think i am weird when i tell them it's my daily and my evo is my fun car. Corvette gets way better gas mileage than my evo. especially since the Evo is e-85 tuned. haha

    GG VIII MR, WW MR-T
    Talk about HB Mitsubishi. Was there last week driving my 05 GG MR helping my sister purchasing a new Hyundai Kona. All the memories surpassed; the evo meet happened there, the many evos with all kind of color... and the hassle of price negotiation when they were jacking up the evo price with a markup.... and watching my car going off from the showroom to the garage to prepare for delivery (to me, my 05 was in the show room and the dealer was trying to get me into a white MR on the parking lot but GG was a brand new color for evo back then and I loved it)....
    Now, all there are Hyundai.
