Yep, I guess the time came to get rid of it. I want a lower mileage one. A 93+ one, I want a different color than red.

I dont really want to talk about it much, it kinda makes me sad, but I figured you all have a right to know the MR2 is going away and it is probably going to be at least a year or more before I get another one.

I sold it for 3 grand. The reason why so low is it has about 2 grand worth of body damage from when it was hit by the trailer. Im selling it as is, complete with the Gen3 EFI system on it, etc. The only thing Im pulling out of it is the head unit.

I has a sad.

I totally would have bought that shit, fixed the body damage, and painted it.
MR2s around here are expensive.

You bastard. I dare you sell my engine without consulting me first. I really could have used your 3rd gen electronics. Sell it for less and I'll make up the difference if you sell me the conversion kit.

Its pretty much a done deal Joel.

Im sorry man, I need the money now, and Ill buy another MR2 later. Im not taking anything off the car.

Why don't you buy a real car like a 5th gen this time :hehe:

























j/k. If I could do it all over again I would have gotten an mr2 from the start.

Its all good man. Sometimes you just gotta do it. I'm actually tempted to sell the Alltrac. Tell you what you better take something off of it. That spider better end up on your new one.

You'll feel better in a couple of years when you are driving that 93+

What color you want? SMG FTW.

Awe, that sucks. I think if I ever replaced my 165, I would find a clean/rust free US or Jap body, then tear it down to the bone and do it the way I want, now that I have learned so much with the car. I'd really consider a Jap one, they are just insanely rare at this point. Maybe you should keep on the lookout for a clean shell for relatively cheap, then build it up over time....that's what I'd prob do..

I'm a firm believer in things working out for themselves and/or things happening for a reason.You'll have something come along that will make you not regret selling it.

Somebody stole the spider Joel. Its gone.

And Larry, yeah, SMG is one of the colors Im looking for. But Id also take a nice Yellow one too.

Right on. My ideal 2gen deuce is an SMG 93+. Be very picky and wait for the perfect one! :biggthumpup:

Oh and its official. I signed the title away and handed homeboy the key today. Its gone. I got a check for 3k in my pocket.

He did exactly what he needed to do for now.
Later, he will be fully able to get what he wants.:)

It was the right decision.
I'll miss it too, because it has always been "your car".
Also that was the first Mr2 i have driven that made me grin from ear to ear as it made me one with the seat under acceleration! :D

You will find your perfect 2 when you're ready for it bro.

I've never seen a yellow one is it bright yellow? I'd take a spyder in that color but not a MK2.

My favorite colors for mk2s are black and SMG, of course white which looks good on ANY gen mr2. Hell white looks good on just about any car.

You selling a complete turbo car for 3k has really got me considering the cost effectiveness of doing the mk1.5. I could get probably 1500 for my 20v swap and buy a beams or a 3sgte.

I'd probably kill myself in a car with power though maybe I should just do a 20v 7age.

Yeah, he drives a girls car. We had to pull his man card when he got rid of his MR2 cause he don't own a manly car any more.

good luck towing your boat to the lake with that tho.


speaking of that.. some kid in a turbo duce was trying to race me tonight.. he got a mean jump on me.. but i kept right on his ass

If he doesn't need to tow a boat, I'm pretty sure that's irrelevant ;)

Bullshit Jason.

The Supra wouldn't need to tow the damn boat.
It would accelerate SO hard that the boat would be pulled into the resulting gravity well and follow it to the lake/

Says the guy who drives the RSX? RSX, 7th gen Celica, and Scion TC all fall into the chick category. You see more women driving them than anything. Funny thing is that goes for the MR-S too just usually with them it's OLD women.

Oh, and ya homeboy got a steal. 2k in damage? Bulllshit. I paid like 650/750 or something insanely cheap for my damage on my old NA, and that was 10x worse than yours. Yours is a simple easy fix.

Regardless this money will help you tons, and you have 2 very capable MR2's that you can pretty much drive whenever (BB's, and mine). Isn't like you're MR2-less really. You just don't have one in your garage.

Blackcloud
05-17-2010, 02:22 PM
lol. gravity well

honestly i think you need a car and a truck.. there is lots of shit i like to do that you need a truck for.. but i love the handling and fuel mileage of cars

I still have my MR2, which is what saves me from that category. Papabear don't have one no more, so he falls in that category now.

Insurance quoted 2k in damage. Thats what it would have cost to have a collision center repair that. Not saying you couldnt find it cheaper, but market asessment on the damage was in the 2k realm

Jason. I have a truck. 3 of them. Jeremy has a Dodge Ram 5 speed V8, Emily has a Dakota V6 Magnum, and Jeremy has a Ford F150 as well.

I want her to get her Dodge paid down and get a Tundra or something. But I have access to trucks for my quad riding habit and shizz.

always have at least one truck. theres an old toyota pickup in my future. but for now i borrow my dads tacoma.

News flash: I'm pretty sure an mr2 is a girls car too.

Luni
05-17-2010, 06:58 PM
An MR2 Turbo with my modlist was hardly a girls car.

Most girls would kill themselves if they tried driving that car fast.

But see the tundra's interior was made for manly men who do contractor type work and frequently wear thick gloves. That's why all the buttons, controls and door handle are freaking enourmous and cheapish. The GM and Ford trucks are for guys who get other guys with tundras to do the manly work around the house while they're out getting mani-pedis.


(Lol jk, I'm a silverado guy. But that first part about the tundra was part of the reasoning for the interior design)

05-18-2010, 03:49 PM
Fords trucks rule! I hate GM's :) sorry Blackcloud. (my personal preference)

My dad has a 2008 GM, I just drove them last week to the airport in it and drove it home, it started to rain/snow and It took more than 5 minutes to find the damn wiper control, I didn't even bother with the radio as that made no common sense either.

Luni
05-18-2010, 04:40 PM
I hate GMs interiors, the gauges, etc.

I was just driving around in a tundra down in the ATL cause Cappy has one. That truck is a nice fucking truck. I like it.

T-spoon
05-18-2010, 05:17 PM
Uh, what's supposed to look better about the Ford and GM interior? The faux wood panels which I don't like? I liked the tundras we test drove when they brought them around to the dealerships to be test driven on courses before launching in 07 and thought the interior felt and looked cleaner and more finished than the dodge, GMs, Fords and Nissans.

Blackcloud
05-19-2010, 01:01 AM
you guys must be smoking crack.. the tundras are cheap as fuck looking inside. and their layout is not driver friendly. i get to play in these things all day long. Personally i kinda like the new dodge and ford interiors. waiting for the 11' GM to come out

oh and soda.. gms make more HP then fords do. i got the one in my siggy beat, on fuel alone and spraying. he is running a lift pump and more nitrous and i still own him

sodap0p
05-19-2010, 01:46 AM
yeah, I saw the cool post with the dyno photos and stuff, I still like Ford better :)

to each is own though :)

And at the drag strip, Im pretty sure it was the GM truck that was smoking the other GM truck and the Dodge over and over on Friday night, I think ChrisD and RyanD can confirm this. No Toyota, or Nissan trucks in sight, I dont think there was a Ford either though other than that Ranger, but they arent real trucks. Its cool watching trucks giddy up down the track. I just feel sorry for anyone who races after them...thick white and black smoke...
