whoever is selling you this "muscle car" is obviously playing with you, and they know you dont know anything about cars, a lot of those parts are pointless body kits, turbo timers and speakers and stuff anyway

Wow, like 10 replies and no help. I guess I'll try. To learn about turbochargers, or cars in general, go to www.howstuffworks.com. That car is not a "musclecar" by any means, although it may be quick, it's a front wheel drive 4 cylinder Mitsubishi.

It sounds like he's saying Mitsubishi only made 8 turbocharged Galants, which I can't tell you if it's true or not, but I'd be skepticle. Unless this is indeed some super rare Galant, his price is super high. Usually modifications to a car don't increase the value, and often decrease the value of the car. I won't break down every modification, but the majority of them don't make the car any faster. Most of it is stereo/apperance stuff.

A word of advice, if you know nothing about cars it's a bad idea to go jumping into something like this. It's been modified, which means it was driven with some "spirit" no matter what the owner says.

No do not buy it

Ok here is my advice.

The Mitsubishi Galant are not very good cars to start with. They are not roomy inside and the engines are not that great. Plus the car is not worth that much to start with. You are only paying for inflated aftermarket parts, that are really worthless for this car in particular, unless you are interetsed in looks.

My advice is if you are looking for a muscle car, think of Mustang or Supra, or 300ZX. Those are muscle sport cars, and if you can afford a porche than go for it. Otherwise a Galant is not even worth it.

Wouldn't you consider the Mustang a muscle car? Back in the day it was just a reference to American made V8 cars that were quick, would smoke the tires and looked good doin it.
