Had a quick fling with the Ralliart Colt when I worked for Mitsubishi - lots of laughs, not surprised you miss it. Knew a couple of blokes in Brisbane with LJ50 2-stroke Stockmans that were worked off their head, you could watch people scratch their head and look for a dirt-bike everytime they screamed (and I mean screamed) past - fantastic little weapons.First car is a Suzuki Sierra "Stockman" ute, learnt to drive in it around the farm when I was 8.
First road legal car was a stock 2001 Mitsubishi Lancer GLi in white
Second car was a 1996 Mitsubishi FTO GPX in Midnight Blue:

Sierra is a fantastic car, we actually still have it on the farm it's still going strong. I "rolled" it (put it on it's roof) at about 40km/h when I was 13 and some bloke with a hammer panel beat the fuck out of the roof and it was fine, it was fully upside down but it was strong enough that it was just the top panel that got damaged, I have a photo of it I can scan and post here if anyone's interested.Had a quick fling with the Ralliart Colt when I worked for Mitsubishi - lots of laughs, not surprised you miss it.

Performance at a late age? 35!!!Nothing major for me - I only passed my test in 2006 when I was 27 so cars before that were my wife’s.
2001 Vauxhall Corsa (just a 1 litre I think, did the job)
2002 Peugeot 206cc (1.6. We though we were so cool with this car. To be fair, it was pretty awesome at the time)
2005 Honda Civic Sport (great looking car and still my favourite iteration of the Civic)
2006 BMW 3 series 318ES (my wife always wanted a BMW - nice car, Japan Red, think I was driving at this point)
2006 Citroen C4 (automatic - practical etc, we were skint at this point so downsizing etc)
2002 Skoda Fabia (this was MY car - an absolute tank. Never broke down. 60mpg and a clutch that was ‘on it’s way out’ for about 3 years!!)
2011 Citroen C1 (what was I thinking? Kept for 6 months, tin can. Avoid)
2012 New Honda Civic Sport.(again, thought we were cool. Looked lovely I must admit but this car would not pull you out of bed, so under powered it wasn’t funny, lots of trips back to the garage as well, wife ended up hating this car)
2014 Kia Pro Ceed GT (this car got me into performance at a late age - very underrated and a fantastic first effort from Kia. First car ive ever really cared about)
