The first Driven DSM Video was filmed in 2002 as a way to explore video production further. This eventually led to Driven 2 and more videos. Included in the Driven DSM videos are the nicest Eclipses, Talons, Lasers and Galant VR4s that the Northwest had to offer with other quick vehicles joining in.

The Story of my DSM
Just a quick story of my DSM, and also the first time ive ever tried making a movie.

DSM (Doesn't Start Monthly)
*I know, I said 2 cylinders in the video. My mistake. I meant 2 liter. There's going to be some hate on me for this, but they know it's true. DSM (Diamond Star Motors) are very capable cars and can be made fast easy, but one thing about DSM is that it has no reliability at all. Parts just seem to quit on a daily basis. The car would run one day and the next day it will just not start. Parts die suddenly for no apparent reason. I've heard the horror stories with DSM, but now I finally got to experience the frustration of owning one. I have no doubt that the car can be made fast. I have seen fast DSM's at the track. There is great potential for this platform. DSM is more for those wanting a project car and don't mind shelling out money into it then taking it out to the drag strip once or twice a year and running 9 second passes. If you want anything otherwise, you won't enjoy it. If you enjoy your DSM, you are lucky and should be glad. For many of us who hate dealing with broken parts all the time and the car not starting all the time, we just want it gone. So I'm letting it go to another owner who will spend more time with it.
