    How many of us still have/drive a 7G? What do you have and hows it holding up?

    The 7G forum is almost like a ghost town so I was wondering how many of us still have/drive a 7G? What do you have and hows it holding up?
    I still have my 94ES that I bought new, a 94GS that I picked up for $200 after its engine blew a rod thru the block (I replaced the engine with another DOHC and had the trans take a dump so I replaced the trans) a 96ES that I got for $200 after the auto died (did a 5 speed swap) and a 98ES that I bought new. All still run. The 94 is my winter car because it has studded snow tires. It is becoming a beater due clear coat letting go, cracked dash and minor hit in the rear. The 98 is my warm weather car and other than the paint is in very good condition. The other two are my spares waiting their turn to become daily drivers.

    I daily drive my 94GS. Still gets great mpg and treats me great as long as i treat her right.
    Other than the typical dsm passenger airbag cover warping and the headliner fabric peeling the interior is in fantasic shape. Exterior is great too for a 20+ year car. Minor dings and minimal surface rust aside still looks great!

    I also had a 94LS that was a fantastic car, had around 280k on it and the tranny started to get slow to accelerate until past 35ish mph. It got parked and never started up again for a few years. I stripped it this past winter and scrapped it though. But it was a fine car only parked due to acquiring a new family vehicle.

    There are a few for sale locally that im considering buying to keep em alive. Love these cars. Im also currently saving to import one in the next few years when they are legal.

    I want a legitimate GS, not a swapped one lol. I may br a trim below but it's not the same. I could probably remove the viento badge and put the GS one on but it won't be as cool haha

    Yeah in the past year I have seen one 6g on the road that i always see an old man drives to the post office in it by my house a lot haha. And i have only seen two 7gs one was is decent shape was a 94-96 and the other was a ragged out 97-98 that had a nasty water pump whine as it drove by lol
    I see 8gs and 9gs all day everyday.

    Every car meet I go to everyone is so curious about my car lol its funny and sad at the same time.

    I'm the same with the meet thing. Everyone is more interested in the Rhd car on the other side of the lot haha

    Yeah r32s everywhere last meet I went to had 4. I was only slightly jealous of one of em Lol

    We'll always be the only 7gs at meets I bet, except a galant only meet or MOD but even then chances are slim. Sad but true.

    32s, some 33s, alot of Rhd nissans basically and a couple of toyotas. The only mitsus at my meets are lancers to evos and a small group of 1Gs or 2Gs but I'm not a true dsm. I have dsm badges but I'm not one lol

    Yeah there are some 33s and 34s here but i dont like 34s and i just dont acknowledge them since they are grey market and illegal as fuuu. There was a nice silvia at cars and coffee last month. Never any 1gs here and only the one 2g in my local club go to meets here. Evos everywhere here though.

    As far as not being a dsm im not gonna get into that argument right now lol

    You know whats here. 94 ES i bought for 1k, me and Bronxbomr did a 5spd swap back in the day. Then i turboed it, dohc-ed it and rebuilt it with forged internals. it went thru many paint jobs to end up in green color. I bought the 94 gs in 2012 from Chris (Galanttuner10) w/o engine or trans. I went full retard as i AWD swapped it. it has been my daily since then.
    God created turbo lag to give the v8's a brief moment of hope.

    I wish I still had mine...would be a great commuter. My new-ish G is thirsty! If I can find a clean VR4 I might import one since they are so cheap
