There are some vehicles that I know will get picked clean within days of showing up in a self-serve wrecking yard. For example, the Toyota Land Cruiser— say, this ’71 or even this ’85. Sixth-gen Honda Civics go the same way. But this 1996 Mitsubishi 3000GT? Apparently, the hunger for 3000GT/Stealth parts is high in the Denver area.
The instrument cluster had already been grabbed when I first saw this car in September, but otherwise the interior was fairly complete. A month later, not much remains.
Suspension, engine, bumper— all gone.
Even the very 1990s plastic cladding panels will live on in some other GTO.
