Kevin Roy’s Galant VR4 – Part 1
6th generation Galant VR4s are a special breed. Limited edition (in North America), WRC homologated sleepers which paved the way for the world renowned Lancer Evolution you just don’t see every day. I used to own a couple – and that’s as Banovsky would say, a story for another day – but neither was as clean as Kevin’s.
[bd] Introductions. Who are you, where are you, and what do you do for a living?
[kr] My name is Kevin Roy and I live in Orlando, Florida. I work for Wells Fargo as a banker.
[bd] Now, the cars. I know you have a couple Galant VR4s. How did you get into these machines? Have you always been a Mitsubishi/turbo/AWD fan?
[kr] I actually have 1 Galant VR4. I used to go to local Orlando DSM meets in my 1995 Galant back in the day and hang out with the guys with 1G and 2G DSMs. Then one day this guy named Fabio came to a meet in his 91 Summit White GVR4 and I was totally intrigued by it. At this time I didn’t know Galants came AWD with a 4G63T.
Fabio was one of the very 1st to have an Evo 3 Big 16G installed, which was the turbo upgrade craze at the time. Spending time observing and learning about the car and seeing it leave the meet doing an AWD launch… I was certain one day I would own one.
I was originally into domestics until I went to the Philippines to visit family, where most of them owned Turbo Pajeros, Delicas, Galants and Lancer Evo 2s & 4s, and I was instantly hooked on the Mitsubishi brand.
