I’m in Danville, but I heard there’s like 2 other white MR2s in the area. I have a white 91 Turbo but mine isn’t running currently. I got it from a tow yard but trying to restore it. If anyone has an extra motor laying around I’ll be interested in purchasing one.

91’ Steel Mist Gray Turbo in San Jose.
Got it $900 few years back from an estate sale. Registration hadn’t been paid for about 10-12yrs when I got it. All it needed was a new battery and a fuel pump(guessing this is why it say there), oh and a Better owner that wouldn’t just let it sit there and rot. Que in me.

Runs good as a daily now. After 2 weeks 1st getting it on the road, the Hose from Hell gave out on me 7AM on the freeway on my way home from a graveyard shift. About to do body when summer starts.

I had a total of 3 mr2s since 2006. I've spent many many hours on here but I hardly come on anymore. I just have my 93 teal turbo now but I have it as PNO. I think I need to replace some ignition components since it starts to break up with more than half throttle pressed. Been thinking of parting it out for the past 3 years lol.

I've since gotten a 2018 Porsche 911, 2020 jeep rubicon, and a 2016 Harley. So my time is spent mostly driving/riding these now.

Just got my first 91 turbo yesterday. Looking to make friends with anyone in the east bay who wants to give a hand in the restoration project. It's all stock and I just drove it from Vacaville to Pleasanton with no problems. But since it's been sitting in driveway for years only driven to preserve the battery, I have to replace all of the fluids, belts and weather stripping (if not more). Oh yeah, needs a serious paint job.

Been an owner of an 86 NA in the Southbay for 20+ years but it hasn't seen the road towards the back end of my ownership in the last 3 years. Before I let that one go I added an 87 Supercharged to my garage about 4 years back but I'm struggling to get it on the road also, I need a good machine shop to restore the 30+ year old block.

Any suggestions anyone? (I have a separate thread asking the same thing)
