I had an 88 supercharged MR2 from brand new to selling it just last year, and was one of the original members of the MR2 online forum. What made that car exciting was the real possibility of death at any moment. I once hit a deep puddle on the 280 and did at least two full revolutions before getting control going backwards. If you aren't crapping your pants, you aren't having fun.


Somewhere, some place, someone is adding nitrous to a Hellcat. Because more power = bigger johnson.

I liked my ES Spyder more than the STX Twin. It was more involving to drive and it required a certain type of driving style that was just plain fun. It's why I have more interest in getting a Cayman at this point since it's an adult MR2.

The Twins are very balanced and very easy to drive, and probably point/transition better than most cars. But they, much like the S2000, feel like a precision tool rather than a fun car with some character.

My car lives outside and I hadn't washed it in over a year, so yesterday I spent some time washing, claying, and waxing it.

I actually made an audible groan of pleasure when I saw the interior:

Ya, wasn't sure if it was just me, but brown makes for a very tasteful interior color I think. Love how they kept the 80's aesthetic of the gauges and console as well, just with upgraded switch gear. I have no idea what that rocket button does, but I want one in my car lol






Also, love those wheels. Kinda wished my OZs we more like that, with the thinner spokes and slightly smaller center "dish"

I distinctly ordered the Antarctic Blue Super Sports Wagon with the C.B. and optional rally fun pack.

WTB: CRX or Civic Hatch (4th/5th gen), streetable high priority, autox/track capable as secondary

Brother needs a new car and I'm getting far too hyped about a ~2,000 lb car to drive.
