What did you drive before your EVO?

Just trying to see what people graduated from... what other car were you considering at the time? What sold you on the EVO?

In order....

POS 1978 Ford LTD with (RWD 351 V-8) This was in 1990 BTW first car and cost me $200.00
Not so POS 1984 Mercury Grand Marquis (RWD 302 V-8)
1994 Eclipse (FWD non-turbo 1.8)
1996 3000 GT VR-4 (AWD turbo 3.0)
1992 Galant VR-4 (AWD turbo 2.0)
1997 Eclipse spyder (FWD non turbo 2.4)
2003 Evolution (AWD turbo 2.0)

I got the EVO because I loved the "sleeper" effect of my Galant VR-4 and wanted to have that again. I have removed the giant CF wing and switched to JDM EVO7 red tail lights to make the car more of a sleeper.

Mando, my under cover brother.

I came from a 97 Eclipse GS-T that i love and miss very much. It was modded and tuned just right. I had that thing pulling like a raped ape. Man I love that car! I had to sell it though to make room for the Evo, but for a period of two months I was in heaven driving both every other day.

That's all I've ever owned.

Bought my first car in '99 when I moved out here, a '99 Civic sedan (Value Package) :yawn:. Paid it off 2 years later, decided I was bored with it, sold it and bought an '01 Eclipse GT. I was pretty happy with that until I started autocrossing when I found out that the 3G Eclipse, well, sucked. Luckily around the same time the Evo had hit the market and I traded in the Eclipse. Don't think I'll ever sell my Evo though; eventually it will end its days as a track-only or rally car; I'm already starting to think as to what I'll want as a daily driver a couple years from now.

Stradling Both Sides of the Fence

I'm driving both an Evo MR and a 2002 WRX (mild mods). My other cars have included a European Ford Escort Turbo (while in the military), '86 Acura Integra, '81 Datsun 280Z, and various other cars not worth mentioning.
