Happy Pi Day to all the true Pi-day adherents, I won’t get started on those wacky Pi-approximatists who celebrate on July 22 (heathens & heretics the lot of them!!), but I will explain what this next car has to do with 3.14. There is an expression about being American as apple pie, so I have to assume that there is an equivalent expression about something being as Japanese as a pie. Probably not apple pie, in fact the pie is probably fish flavored or one of those delicious okonomiyaki pancakes…so this next car is as Japanese as okonomiyaki. Which is essentially pie…a synonym for pi…wait I don’t have to justify myself to you non-pi day plebeians…I’m going to go eat some pi…or…err…pie now.

If this next car is leaving you confused..don’t fret…because if you weren’t a die-hard Gran Turismo video game fan or a JDM-savant, you might never have heard of the Mitsubishi FTO. The FTO was only built in right-hand-drive, so we never got them in North America, but the 2.0 liter MIVEC 24 valve V6 pushed 197 horsepower into the front wheels for a driving experience similar to the Eclipse. But the styling…oh, that was so much better in the FTO. ‘Tis a shame this one has the auto gearbox. Find this 1995 Mitsubishi FTO GPX offered for $10,990 in Burlington, WA via craigslist.
