Movies and TV Series with Mitsubishi vehicles

by ruinunotuner | created - 26 Dec 2012 | updated - 27 Dec 2012 | Public

I'm a Mitsubishi model collector and I like to sometimes make my own reproductions of non-existent models. There are some Mitsubishi cars who really made an impression in some movies, and this is a list with those movies. In some of these movies, some of you probably didn't pay attention to the car, but car fans sure know what I'm talking about. It's always nice to see cars that we like on the screen.
