I went to this Car Show, July 31st, 2004 and entered under the "Asian Import" class. Unfortunately, I didn't win..and there was only one winner per class..European Import, vintage, street rod, etc. I did answer a trivia question correctly and won a Meguire's Car care kit...and a free oil change, free tire rotation and wheel balance. This Delorean was there..Back to the Future trip. Cool cars and a good time was had by all. Wait 'till next year...
2006 Mitsubishi ECLIPSE:
Eclipse design engineers were charged with creating a vehicle with a smooth, organic feel, but with aggressive design cues that clearly identified it as a Mitsubishi product. The result is a muscular look that is sure to turn heads, exuding both attitude and sophistication. The underlying structure is shrink-wrapped with a clean tight skin, giving the Eclipse a distinctive athletic look. An arched roofline and flexed surfaces exude energy that just begs someone to drive the vehicle.
An integrated rear spoiler is standard on Eclipse GS and GT models and its wedged, teardrop shape gives the vehicle an even more aggressive look. Sporty air intakes and a single oversized, stainless steel tailpipe (GT) add more attitude. A split grille, techno head and tail lamps with chrome surfaces and clear lenses cap the vehicle�s sex appeal.
The new Eclipse features an exciting, modern exterior color palette aligned with Mitsubishi�s global color direction, in addition to feature colors designed to enhance the vehicle�s identity. These include UV Blue and Rotor-Glow Pearl.
POWER AND PERFORMANCE
The 2006 Eclipse enjoys several power and performance enhancements designed to raise the adrenaline levels of driver and passengers alike. The Eclipse GT features the most powerful V6 engine in its class, and both Eclipse GS and GT models feature MIVEC (Mitsubishi Innovative Variable timing and lift Electronic Control) engine technology. With the aid of variable valve timing, engine performance is optimized throughout the power band with improved low-speed torque and high-rev power. Emissions also were reduced as the Eclipse GS now is classified as an Ultra-Low Emissions Vehicle (ULEV). Both powerplants provide strong off-the-line acceleration and passing power, building driver confidence and boosting the fun-to-drive quotient.
The new Eclipse features a highly rigid body that for the first time implements a flat-shape, stamped cross member structure. Combined with a wider track, the rigid construction significantly improves handling and stability without sacrificing ride comfort. A front MacPherson strut and low-mount multilink rear suspension provide a flat ride with nimble and articulate handling, while an increased suspension stroke improves traction and reduces harshness on uneven road surfaces. Front and rear stabilizer bars are standard, helping keep all four corners fixed to the road and increasing feedback to the driver. Vented front and rear brakes (GT) allow for better heat dissipation. The Eclipse comes with standard 17-inch aluminum alloy wheels and seven-spoke, 18-inch premium wheels are available on the GT trim line. 4th gen.Eclipse GS/165 horsepower Eclipse GT/263 horsepower

Here are some still shots from the earliar Need For Speed video game series: NFS 3 Hot Pursuit & NFS 4 High Stakes. These 3G Eclipses are only playable on the PC/computer version of the games. Too bad you can't unlock them on Need For Speed: Underground, which is a totally kick ass game!
