1997 Mitsubishi Eclipse GST Spyder

Here is something of the past, a 1997 Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder GST. I had this car many years ago, around 2000-2001 if I recall right. It was a car I still miss today, I had a lot of fun with it. It was never a real audio car, I had a pretty simple system in it. A Pioneer head unit along with some Alpine 6.5″ DDrive components with a small amp. I had another small amp and a JL audio 10″ sub at some point as well but that is about it.
