    Hmm one of my neighbour has two in his yard. One of them is a daily driver. I don't think I've seen any others around outside of wreckers for 5+ years.

    I just google imaged the Starion and some of the better examples look great. Seems like a perfect project car for someone into the older vehicles.

Still have one that I drive every now and then. Can also attest to the puzzled looks from onlookers when they try to work out what it is. Had mine out today and had a cople of guys taking pics and asking questions.

    Can't wait for Aaron to represent at the drag strip with his JA. I have no doubt that it will run the numbers he wants.

    Yeah, as soon as one came up I jumped on it. It is already full manual/reverse pattern but Waiting on parts from Cope Racing Transmission to give it a freshen up.

    Used to have a shorty '85 Pajero with a G63B in it. Came that way, not sure how that happened? Had unending problems with the two injectors. Was gaids.

    Ended up sending to the wreckers as it blew an oil seal on the turbo, injectors died and body was full of rust...

    Thought I had better do an update, been flatout with work & andra shit. But Engine is in & ready for fab work around it.

    Did a test fit of the Magnus Manifold & Fuel Rail.

    The manifold will be shipped back to the USA soon to be plumbed with hard lines etc by Nitrous Express for a 4cyl direct port system.

    I learnt to drive in my Dads 82 station. I think it was $27000 back then, so not cheap. It felt so space age at the time and he used to play some crazy synthesiser music in the tape deck.I vaguely remember him occasionally racing a green Rx 7 when he would drive us to school. He blew the motor and it sat for a long time in the dealers until they got a engine in. Was super quick in comparison to my mates cars in 1989.

    Would love to see a well sorted one now days. Keep posting!

    That is very nice work
    an easy fix is get a mate to drive in front of you at 60 then 80 then 100 and mark in on your speedo with some liquid paper.

    Try Dave Cox at "Garage Redzone" at Maroochydore He has a website if ytou google . He looks after a lot of Starions for those still involved with them. Mostly though, once the throttle body and/or ECU start to play up guys are converting to MPI and an aftermarket ECU for better results and easier maintenance.
