YAK Car Pic of the Day

Filed under: You Auto Know

'81 Mitsubishi L300

Imagine driving this 1981 Mitsubishi L300 van and having to make a panic stop. I’m picturing your brake foot coming through the front of the van and resting on the bumper. I’m also picturing horrible images of one of these things in a head-on collision with anything larger than a shrubbery. They were interesting-looking though; equipped with rear-wheel drive, and mid-engined, I’ll bet they handled well. They also look easy to park. Which is probably the safest thing to do with one of these — park it.

    Like piloting a VW Microbus, you’d need nerves of steel to drive this one.
