1920s American luxury car. Now for something completely different, a 1980s Japanese compact turbocharged sport coupe. This is a 1983 Mitsubishi Starion.
This car hails from the first year the Starion was sold in the US. At first glance, approaching from behind, it looked relatively solid and original. The red paint is shiny in most places but fading in others. The front fascia is beat up and the hood appears to have red duct tape on the leading edge to hide rust. The grille insert is missing and the rear bumper is cracked from some long-ago impact. The side graphics match the factory style, but masking lines on the rubber weatherstripping around the windows tell me that this car has been repainted.
