Eben, don't know how old you are but 30 years ago, I bought an '86 Jade Green 5-speed MR2...BEST car I have EVER had! Talk about fun. I was working in downtown Chicago and remember driving in on the Eisenhower and noticed people were turning and looking at the car as they passed me. It was a differently styled car for its time. It wasn't fast but it was quick. Just point and shoot and the car responded. One day after work, I removed the sunroof, put it in the trunk, got in the 2 and headed home. As I got to Lake street (hooker heaven back then), a lady of the evening was at the corner where I was going to turn. She asked me 'Can I get a ride in a cute car with a cute guy'? All I could do was smile and go on my way. I wish I could tell more stories, but what happens in an MR2, stays in an MR2.

Sorry for late reply. Don't I wish I had that kind of fortune lol! Honestly the car scares me. Drove in wet weather and slid instantly. I'm working on dialing in the suspension. I want to put on all the T3 bits but read that kind of thing for a daily is a no no and causes stress cracks on mounting points. Trying to get a confirmation on this. Other than that, I'm liking it. Going to do my best to preserve it.
