If it's still living I'd say it's on club rego.
I hope someone has looked after it. Looks like a lovely ride.
I miss my MR2 everyday. God damn kids and that was the end of it. But then again the funds from that bought me my new toy. The boat!!!!!
My brother had an MR2 (single turbo) at one stage.. it was a little rocket!
yeah they are quick alright! they never came in twin turbo. single turbo (jdm) , n/a and supercharged (jdm) versions only.
mine was the turbo JDM model with almost everything in the engine bay modified to some point..

heres a few pics of mine, it had quite a few variations of itself in my ownership... its now somewhere in queensland :(

Dam Steve! You had a real beauty there...
yeah quite a lot of $$$ spent and quite a few extremely rare parts on that car like the exhaust which was the subject of a massive bidding war on a japanese auction site and was one of 3 in australia at the time and not made since the 1990s, the front lip which was imported in a group buy from the states, until then nobody had one in australia, the wheels which cost me an arm and a leg to get from japan because they are not made anymore and fetch quite a lot of money (2k plus) even today (if you can find a good set)
i spent a lot of time doing quite a lot of modifications to it myself, and i still do the same today except it is now to the boat :-D

i should have kept it and put it on club rego as of this year april the car would be 29 years old, dont think you would pick it if i didnt mention it

Nice car, looks just like my brothers one did - same colour and all just without the roof scoop (to the untrained eye anyway). I wasn’t sure if they came factory twin turbo as my brothers friend had a twin turbo (must’ve been aftermarket), even the single turbo had plenty of up n go. He always referred to it as the “poor mans ferrari”
