1999 Mitsubishi Lancer EVO VI

It has been rather hectic since the car arrived, so I thought I'd send you an email to say thank you for your work. The car arrived in Launceston back on the 10th, the day I flew to visit family for a few days. So I had to wait until the 15th before I could drive it! Then again, I had already waited 13 years, so an extra few days was nothing really! When I saw it for the first time, it looked right at home, parked between an XU1 Torana and a Andrew Miedecke's Ford Capri Perana Targa car out in the workshop yard!

I was very pleased to find the car literally exactly as described and as documented in your correspondence and pictures, right down to the smallest detail. I've had a lot of people ask me about my experience importing the Evo VI from Japan. Needless to say, I have no hesitation in saying my experience was an easy and hassle free one. Thanks for your fantastic communication, even though I was working inconsistent hours and was slow in replying, you were always on the ball, promptly and professionally.
