Just wondering how many Mr2s folks are still around the Bay Area? I still have my 2 but no longer running.

Jump in here and say HI if you are alive!!!

Why is it not running?
The Turbo was burning oil and I stopped driving it. Now its sitting in my garage waiting. It has been at least 10+ years. I hope to get it running someday for sure since I cant see myself selling it.

What's stopping you from replacing the turbo? Is it the stock ct26?

Letting the car sit 10 years has made some work for you, you could have at least driven it occasionally for short trips checking the oil each time before you drive.

Hey, I am from bay area, still running mr2 daily. Have a spare CT20B turbo too, if you need one ;-)

Not sure if "still around" counts -- I've only had my sw20 for a year and a half, and only 6 months of that actually running :)

It's a trailer queen too -- registered PNO -- so no chance to make it to a meet.

But it's here... And massive fun to toss around a track:

Hey, did you buy Gen2 Head with cams from the guy in Dublin, CA? Just curious :)

Yes, totally agreed!

Life got busy and it slowly just got away from me. Now being almost 40, I might have to give this car a awaking!!

Since we are on this topic, any local SF/San Mateo shops you all recommend to take my car too??

I really wish SU was still around.

I have an AW11 in San Jose that currently doesn't run. Maybe next week.

I also know of three other AWs in South Bay, and one in Hayward.
