And some odd taillights I've never seen before.  

Well I can't read anything but that's cool looking thru the pictures of the various listings.

You have to use Stallion to find anything there

I search gsr-vr then copy/pasted into good translate and removed characters til I was left with Mitsubishi stallion.

200,000 YEN for those louvers.

That translates to $1880 USD according to google....

Someone actually paid that? It says 1 bid...

Wow.  From my past experiences.   I've sold side sets for $400 and as for the rear I've sold 2 for $100 and $200.  

A full set should be worth $600-$800 depending on condition. Now some people may value their parts more than me.  Or some people may be willing to pay more.   But this is my experience.
