Yes, the first wash of a Mitsubishi Starion in 26 years will excite you (+ video)

I have always said it, and I always will say it. All those who say that cars are just “a jumble of iron” do not understand or share our passion. Every petrolhead knows that our bond with that machine and the memories we associate with it, can be as lasting and real as the best personal relationship. And that is why videos like this one will move you: on paper, it is just the first wash in 26 years of a beautiful Mitsubishi Starion. In practice, it is the return to life of a loved one – a real torrent of emotions.

This Starion began to have heating problems in 1996, due to a design flaw in its cylinder heads. Its first and current owner, 26 years later, he has decided that it is time for him to return to the streets. In addition to repairing his mechanics, he has decided to have Larry Kosilla, one of the best detailers in the world, work his magic. The car was really dirty and dusty, but after several washes – both pressure and hand – and a two-stage polish, its unlacquered paint is as bright and shiny as a mirror.

If someone tells you “it’s just a car”, show them the end of this video.

His rims were repainted and refinished by a specialist company, and in the meantime, Larry got to work on his interior. An interior not only dirty, but moldy. The combination of an APC cleaner (all-purpose cleaner, multi-purpose cleaner) and a steam cleaner took care of leaving the interior like the jets of gold – in addition to moisturizing and protecting the plastics. But The best thing about the video is not the final result, it is seeing the reaction and the glazed eyes of the owner seeing the car again in such immaculate condition.

“Better than when I picked it up from the dealer,” in his own words.
