The Mitsubishi GTO (sold as the Mitsubishi 3000GT and Dodge Stealth on this side of the Pacific) was built in Aichi Prefecture, Japan, and was one of the more interesting sports cars of the 1990s.

Here’s a 1995 Stealth R/T, photographed in a San Francisco Bay Area self-service wrecking yard.

This one is an example of the mid-priced Stealth.

I see plenty of 3000GTs and Stealths during my junkyard journeys, but few of them have manual transmissions (strangely, the only one I had photographed prior to today’s Junkyard Find was in a Reykjavik junkyard). I’ll need to document more of these cars, since I think they’re interesting.

The narrator pretty much spits on the ground when he utters the words “Nissan 300ZX Turbo.”
