How about some pictures of that '03 with the Maggiolina somewhere exciting?Here is my old 2003
03 was a unique year as it was the only time here in the states you could get the NP (3.8L, updated drivetrain, ect...) model in the XLS trim. Pretty bare bones inside for a modern rig.
Sold it, but just picked up another low mile 2003 XLS in black.
When I head out for an excursion I take off the running boards and throw the maggiolina on top. Works great.
Thanks for the props. I really liked that one as well. The biggest difference from Betsy III to versions IV and V was that they went back to daily driver duty, since I sold my car (also a Mitsu) when I got the diesels. Since my commute is 160kms/day, I needed to make certain concessions in terms of trailability...rattle, i am a big fan of Betsy III. actually, i enjoy most first gen montys
Very nice. Thanks for sharing. I'm digging the Montero love around here lately.Here you go, this was before the lift, bumper, and tires. Fish lake valley, NV. Hidden little hot spring on the South side of the valley, no roads to it.
I was really close to pulling the trigger on a '95 Montero SR last year. Wound up with a Landcruiser instead. However I had saved from the 'net, a few nice photos of built Mitsus. Not my photos, but maybe will give you some inspiration. Good luck on your hunt!Was wondering what they can look like with a little work.
