Mitsubishi Expo LRV commercial is terrible and wonderful

When I tell people my first car was a 1992 Mitsubishi Expo LRV, they usually nod their head. But, frankly, most people don't have a clue as to what they were unless they either owned one or read my Nostalgic Subcompact article on them.

The Expo and it's near identical Eagle Summit Wagon and Plymouth Colt Vista twins weren't hot sellers, and I don't think this terrible commercial filmed in 1991 (according to the YouTube video) probably didn't help, either. Regardless, it's wonderful to see some of the obscure marketing material about this often-forgetten DSM vehicle.

And the Expo LRV was indeed more than a four door. It was a two door with a sliding side door and a hatchback ... and I still want to get another one and put a 4G63T swap in it. Then it really will be more than a four door.
