Very clean!!!!!!!! It will take a veryyy special buyer to get anywhere near north of half your asking price. GLWS.
Have seen this car in person a few times and have ridden in it once; if you want a turn key perfect MK1.5 this is the car (perfect power for having fun but not so much the chassis is overwhelmed). This is one of the few 1.5's I would gladly open my checkbook for; sadly the check would bounce. The car had working A/C when I rode in it and is obviously owned by a perfectionist as anyone who goes to look at it in person will immediately see. For what it is it just gets no better than this example! Owned by true enthusiast who paid for and only excepted the best for his MR2! The price may seem high but one ride and you'll understand.

My question for Mark is "what's next?"
Hey Mark! Consider a trade for a 600hp tundra? Lol.
Jon, Thanks for the kind words! Of course the A/C still works! Next???? Not sure, just think it is time for a possible change.

Armando, sure why not!:wink2:
Mark, you should call me... ;) not about a trade tho, you'd have to pry that truck out of my cold hands... but that mr2 would look mighty fine with indiana plates...
Don't have your #, shoot me an email markdehaan at
WOW. Car looks unbelievable in pictures...GLWS.
link to pics dont work
*cry face*
Armando, I never thought you would like a truck that much even if it does have the power to bend time and space.
and tow MK1.5's too...
