How goes it everybody, My name's Alex. I'm 20 living in Northeast PA, Milford precisely (unfortunately). I've been a Mitsubishi and BMW fan for quite some time. As far as Mitsubishi was concerned I really liked the 3kGT, up until the times I drove them when I went to buy my car. Though they were quite stylist, they were simply just heavy as hell....Had a bit of power but lacked appeal to me, as well as the fact they would own my insurance monthly. So in December 09 in Central Jersey I had found a great clean 95 Galant. Original owners that had kept it in the family and kept every single receipt for the car, which my dad had somehow lost in the getting of the car from Jersey to PA...but eh. Since buying the car being that it was my first quite a bit of maintanence and different things have been taught to me. (Struts, Battery, Water Pump, Radiator, Wheels, and even a Fast and the furious style 900 degree spin last winter that definitely could've killed me.

When an accord in a decent amount of snow and ice came at me Chicken style at around 3am, and me having the balls to go head to head and making him dip out of my lane and kept driving. stupidly I had touched the accelerator and hit a patch of black ice and the car just violently spun 2 complete 360s and a 180 into a ditch, only managing to pop my driver side tires. When it was all said and done, at the point where I realized what had just happened, I gt out of the car and looked for damage. None, then was like wait...and said aloud something along the lines of"Am i okay? WTFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF" at the time nothing was wrong so i kept driving and then the next morning going to work realized my tires were shot.

Anyway, I'm here now and I have a sick story to show for it. There's a lot I want to do to my car, but for lack of money(7.25 an hr sucks) can't be done til around xmas time when I can get ridiculous overtime, so for the time being, came to look around, get some ideas, learn a bit, and meet some good people.

Welcome to GT...happy to have you part of this community. Glad to see another 7th gen owner too.

Awsome story about your 7g...its always cool to read some history about a owner and their car.

The car looks great...got eventual goals with the galant?

Well originally I wanted to do the 4g swap, 5speed swap, some nice nice rims with a lip , lower it, etc, etc, but when my sister turns 16 in a year and a half i already had promised it to my sister so maybe I'll save some money and invest in a 7g thats already a 5speed...or just get an evo..preferrably the viii. regardless when she gets a job i'll steer her in the right direction and maybe we could hit up shows together lol make it a family thing  8)

Nice!

Evos are nice and great vehicles out of the box...problem is with a person like me, i like to have something different. Thats what is awsome about a 7g...its a overlooked car with tons of potential.

Its up to you really...hope you find a 5speed 7g though. :)

Agreed, I feel the same!  That's why I didn't just decide to keep the gsx for myself.  Everyone mods eclipses.
