Both were the same from day one in 1983 to 1989 I swapped parts from both cars and they all said dymler chrysler with mitsu in the bottom. You can debadge the chrysler and swap tail lights and make it look like a chrysler that was the only difference between both the tail lights

Wierdly enough the car i would like to have back would be my 87 Honda Civic Wagon, it's also the most similar to the xB but a little smaller. I think it has a lot to do with it being my first new car and the one I had through my senior year of high school.

Definitely gotta be my old 1971 Camaro, the experience of the build, crushing cars out on the street that cost more than 10x what I spent on it, pure American muscle. Economy hit me hard, and had to sell it before I got a chance to complete it. Now that I think about it, I'm pretty much one of the most unusual people to own an xB, let alone this is my 2nd one lol.

This thread got me running my Miata again. Now, I've resolved most of the issues. What's left is more cosmetic stuff. Not cheap, but cosmetic.

I had a 79 Hurst olds that I really loved then I parked it in the garage for a while and everything just started falling apart. It was the black and gold model with his and hers shifter. I should have kept it.

I had a '92 Corolla GTi hatchback. 4AGE motor with full exhaust and intake. I did wheels, suspension, custom installed alpine stereo with 2 12" subs in the trunk, a couple of other interior mods. It was my first bought car (my first car was a 1977 corolla wagon from my grandfather) and I had it for 7 years and it went hard with no problems. I gave it to my brother when I moved to the US. He dropped me at the airport and on his way home, got sandwiched between two trucks. It was a sad day.

My first car, it was a 1970 Chevelle with the 396...way too much car for a 16 year old to appreciate.

Wow! Lots of Get Up & Go...

My brother wanted the 396 with 4-speed manual but had to settle for a 350 with 3-speed auto. It was a great cruising car (2.56 read end IIRC) but a bit slow off the line.

My 2004 Toyota Matrix XRS.



CF hood, TRD Celica Front bodykit, Megan Coilovers, full magnaflow catback exhaust, HPE headers, Injen CAI, SS, ES motor mounts, full sounds, custom painted roof. Sportmax (now XXR) 002 16x8 +0 on 195/45s. Enjoyed putting it in LIFT so much that I blew to top half of the motor. Expired warranty, had to pay $10k outta pocket to fix. Sold it for super cheap because LIFT wasn't the same after the repair.
