The most interesting thing about the Irish car scene is the little niches that lurk in every corner of the country, friends and family which are all tied together by a model of a car or a manufacturer. Many people religiously stick to a company with the same type of passion a person would have for a hurling or football team. One of those people is a friend called Rob, he builds but mostly breaks Mitsubishi’s. He has always been telling me that there isn’t enough Mitsubishi’s on Juicebox.
While this is true, I said I would start to make up for it by tagging along to one of those niche’s in the car scene, a collection of Mitsubishi Evo owners from Various parts of the country and on different websites got together to Chat and hit the port tunnel in Dublin to have a bit of fun. Its pretty obvious that most of the Evo series look amazing right out of the box, possibly one of the best series of car’s to ever come out of a company. Something that never gets old is the Iconic wing as you can see above across all generations.
We met in Dublin, and headed up to the meet in Rob’s recently aquired Evo 5. Check that badass rear end!
Sitting comfortably on some Evo 9 wheels with some tasty blue Brembo 4 pots peeping out.
Gangster rare seats… Anyone else remember Tommy Makinen for the Playstation one?
The 5 can look pretty evil in all black.
Speaking of black this Evo 6 Makinen edition was almost like new, it was insane… more on this car real soon.
This 5 was super clean, and was wearing some big brakes behind those Evo 8 shoes.
Some AP racing 4 pots with grooved discs were lurking in the background.
This Evo 6 was looking mighty fine on bronze Rays.
This is proof that sometimes all you need is a set of T7′s. Probably the best wheel ever made, it manages to work almost every time.
This Evo 9 was packing some heat under the bonnet…
Oh look an impressive looking 4G63 lurks under the hood.You can be sure that there’s nothing standard going on here….
Even a clean Evo 3 came. These cars are awesome, there’s just something so right about how they look with that wing especially in black! Good to see one make an appearance.
I’n a type of Japanese Wangan meets Dublin scene we set off for a run through the tunnel, listening to a gathering of 4G63′s grunting inside the port tunnel at a quicker then your average speed limit is something I wont be forgetting anytime soon!
