I wouldn’t say it’s a finished project as there is always something to be done on cars isn’t there!

Mitsubishi Evolution 8 GSR
My name is Danielle Coppin, 28 years old, from Goxhill, North Lincolnshire. I’m currently the General Manager of one of my dad’s businesses which is a fishery and we also rent out holiday cottages on site. I have been working for my dad for two years now but before that, I’ve worked with horses all my life since the age of 7. Horses are a great passion of mine but I couldn’t miss out on the opportunity that my dad was offering me, so here I am!
Growing up my dad has always been into his fast cars and has had a variety of them to which include: Supra, Cortina, Sierra but his most favourite car of all time was his Ford Granada 2.8i Sport. Although that was a long time ago, his flame still burns for high-performance cars, he currently has sat in our workshop a Mitsubishi Evolution X and a Mitsubishi GTO 3LTR Twin Turbo (Imported from Japan). So as you can probably guess, he is the one I get it from! Especially Mitsubishis! Being around my dad’s cars and being brought up around it all he is the reason I’m such a petrol head now! And for me, the end goal was to own a Mitsubishi Evolution!
My first car was a riced up Fiat Punto, it was the ugliest thing ever! But it never let me down bless it and was just a first car, but getting into the car scene a few years ago, ridiculous body kits etc was the in thing back then! So back then I thought it was cool, I wouldn’t be seen dead in something like that no though! Ha-ha! From then on I’ve always had nice cars/fast cars; you have to start from the bottom right? Well, I soon worked my way up. I’ve had a range of different cars growing up from Audis, BMWs, Trucks/4X4s, Abarth, but my personal all-time favourite has to be my Mitsubishi Colt CZT, I still regret selling that thing to this day.
Completely stripped out and running a stupid 200+ BHP it was an absolute little pocket rocket! I had so much fun in that car it was unreal, not to mention the memories made too, I used to take it everywhere. To all the car meets on the weekends or to the bigger events held at Cadwell Park etc. I also had it on track which was an amazing experience. Thanks to the MLR group which set up the event MOD (Mitsubishi Owners day 2017) we even came away with a little Show and Shine trophy! (TAKE ME BACK)
After I sold the Colt, I always said the end game was to own a Mitsubishi Evolution, so I worked hard, and saved up and ended up with my 8! Which is quite amusing really as I was originally set on importing a 5 or a 6! But going more into that side of things I was getting told different things and the import company I was dealing with at the time wasn’t really giving me the best customer service either so from then on I thought I would broaden my search for one and ended up stumbling across the 8 I currently have now! (Must have been fate lol!)
Focusing more on the Evo now, I actually purchased the car as it stands today! After seeing the photos of it and going to view it the next day how could I not! I was absolutely smitten with it! I love everything about it, mainly it’s colour! Yellow! It definitely stands out from the crowd! I wouldn’t say it’s a finished project as there is always something to be done on cars isn’t there! Whether it be big or small, but didn’t really buy it with the intention of it being a project either, so I currently have no plans for it, as it stands I’m just enjoying the car for what it is!
Currently running a safe 434bhp
