Post Lancer Evo V sighting in 604 area

Hi guys....In Walk Turtle was lucky to have a year 2000 Lancer Evo V parked next to his car near Bipa on Alexandra road earlier this week.
I was lucky to see it in person with Rudypoo last night near Yummy. I took some pictures but not enough cause In Walk Turtle's camera ran out of film. And now the pictures are with WillC he will post it soon.

I've seen two fake ones around, the white one being the best. Took me a few looks to figure out it was a fake.
Nobody in their right mind would take the rear discs off an EVO and put drums on instead. I think the exhaust is on the wrong side too.

Ehehe..yea...would be cool if there were real EVOs..

And no Ashton, it is illegal to have your fogs on in the city period. Unless its really foggy or nasty. But who cares? I just turn mine off when I'm downtown, cause the cops there are anal.

They don't really care about the fog light.
But headlight, they are nuts. Few night ago, I've got ticketed about the "WHITE" headlight, even I let them know that they are the DOT PIAA, they still insist give me the ticket, and said they saw the bulb is blue (they've got a really good eyes if so).
No doubt, the very last sentence that I talked to them was "Good night and see you in court sometimes next year!!"

I seen an Evo with Washington plates 2 weekends ago, Saturday in downtown Vancouver. It was around 1030pm and they were pulled over by the cops. I didn't have a chance to look at the car too closely as the cops were looking at me also... (are you allowed to have fogs on all the time???)

I think the white EVO replica that you guys are talking about is from Sattle. I know the owner of that car and it is for SALE now. I think he is asking for 24,000 US dollars. That car is turboed by Minnum. Do you know why he is selling his car?? He bought the GTR!! That is the REAL ONE.
