All Mitsubishi Cookout and Car Show, 2000

This years Cookout was even bigger and better than last years.  We had 42 cars participate in the car show and a few others stopped by to check things out.  The cookout was held on August 26th, 2000 at Staring Lake Park in Eden Prairie.

There were three different categories of cars.  3/Ses, DSMs and other Mitsubishis.  Prizes were given out for several categories.   Here are the winners:
Best DSM:                     Keith Koch, 92 Talon TSi AWD
Best modified DSM:      Patrick Kromrey, 95 Eclipse GSX
Best 3/S:                        Derek Hayes, 93 base Stealth
Best modified 3/S:         Oskar Persson, 95 Stealth R/T TT
Best other:                     Russell Schwanke, 88 Conquest TSi
Best modified other:      Zaheer Khan, 00 Eclipse GS
Cleanest car overall:      Bev and Gene Helms, 96 Stealth R/T TT
Long Distance:               Patrick Kromrey, Texas

There was also a Mitsubishi trivia contest which was a lot of fun.  I had some tuff questions on there, but they all got answered.  Several door prizes were donated by Greg Sheely.  Overall the cookout and car show was a huge success.  Everyone I talked to had a blast.  Thanks to everyone that came out.  If you'd like to see the sign up list, go here:
