Whereas assembling my web site pages with hyperlinks to each Eagle and Mitsubishi car I’ve ever photographed in wrecking yards, I discovered one thing troubling: I had by no means shot an Eagle Talon. Positive, there was this Plymouth Laser Turbo and this a lot by no means Mitsubishi Eclipse, however no examples of the Eagle Division’s most beloved — properly, solely— sports activities coupe.
I resolved that I’d shoot the subsequent Talon I noticed in a wrecking yard; that car turned out to be this one in Denver, from the ultimate mannequin yr of Eagle.
It’s a entrance-wheel-drive, naturally-aspirated mannequin, however at the very least there’s no slushbox to spoil all of the enjoyable.
164,899 miles is a suitable ultimate determine for a Nineteen Nineties Mitsubishi product. The interior is tough and the exterior has suffered from a key-scratching assault, so beauty points might have doomed this car.
Even with the home windows open on a cool Denver day, the musty interior odor was robust. A half-dozen Vanillaroma Automotive-Freshner Little Timber couldn’t disguise the odor. So it’s attainable, even possible, that this Talon was a runner when it took its last experience to the car graveyard.
I checked the VIN and it was born a Talon. Perhaps somebody glued a Mitsubishi badge right here, or maybe some physique elements have been transplanted. Both means, this is among the final automobiles to bear the Eagle identify; if we’re to consider Wikipedia, solely four,308 Talons have been bought in 1998.
The turbocharged all-wheel-drive Talons actually might haul the mail, whereas this model was extra of a zippy-wanting commuter. With one hundred forty horses and a 5-velocity, although, it didn’t crush drivers’ spirits in Tercel-ish style.
Chrysler had such optimism for the Eagle model at first.
