Mike Desmond one of the top designers at Mitsubishi's California-based design center and his two brothers Pete and Joe made this car together....They build it as he was still working at the Japanese builder center, it took three weeks to redo the body and paint, the paint is a silver hue called Dimont BC 151. They did it at lunch and at night with the help of the Mitsu guys...
