    Whatever happened to the.....

    Mitsubishi Shogun "Pinin" ?

    Iknow it was made and sold, but Idont ever see any

    Anyone seen one around where they live? Its a little version of a Shogun, redisgined in mini-replication...by Pininfarina.

    Thought it would have done well...and I don't know WHY I just thought of it, but there's none to be seen

    Sad really....any new on it guys?

    I still see a few, I knew a guy who had one a few years ago. They're dumpy, clumsy little thinks if you ask me, like a Ford Ka that's been soundly thrashed with the ugly stick. Give me a Suzuki Samurai anyday.

    Edit: Or a double cab pickup of some description.

    yeah there's a few of them round here, but they're all shopping trolleys Most of the mud-pluggers over here tend to go for Suzuki SJ's, Datty 410's or Landys...

    you'd be suprised........I was....I was taken to hating them, cos they suck as road cars....should have guessed.

    Tumble brought his vid camera to mine last year and I watched his 4x4 mates giving it death.....well....giving it muddy death

    And the little SJ rollover beasts seem very popular

    Wierd huh? I'd always choose a Lada tho...Ilove Lada....and Niva's are HARD (tm)
