    Driving to the NG.

    So I am coming from Arizona to the NG and I know driving a nearly 20 year old car across country has its perils. Is there anything specific I should bring other then what I have listed below? Or any recommendations?

    Oil
    Coolant
    Tranny Oil
    Tools
    Spare Tire
    Your 1993 Mitsubishi 3000GT SL is one of 4310 that received VIN numbers. Based on the order of the serial numbers, your car was the 2685th out of the 4310 that were made that year.

    cI would bring a full size floor jack just in case, if you're already bringing tools.

    What part of AZ are you in? I'll be leaving SD on Sunday morning, driving out the 8 to Gila Bend, then the 85 up to the 10, through Phoenix and north on the 17 to Flagstaff, then west on the 40 into New Mexico. I plan on stopping somewhere east of Albuquerque the first night.
    I'm not carrying much in the way of tools with me since I don't have any trunk space, maybe a socket set and a bottle of oil. If I need anything else along the way, I'll just buy it. I made it to Memphis for the NG 2 years ago and my car was fine for the whole trip, other than my lifter tick at the end of the trip because I needed an oil change bad. I plan on changing the oil the day before I leave, so even that should be good for the whole trip.

    A little tape for the trip and you shouldn't have any problems.
