Well, not literally, but my actions will cause the death of an MR2 down the road.

I showed the worst driver I know what a *real* car is capable of, and now he wants to buy one ;(. He invited me over to his house, said he wanted to show me some parts he was putting on his cavalier. The guy is a HUGE ricer, learned how to race from watching fast and furious a million times. I was polite and came. He was telling me how he was gonna slap an ebay bodykit on his car, and invest 10,000 into the motor and I kept saying little comments like "You know, the 3sgte, you dont have to invest 5000 into strengthening its bottom end, its built for boost and can handle 450whp on stock internals from the factory." OR I said "My transmission was used for WRC in celica's. Its a strong transmission, and I dont have to put in all new gears just to be able to drag race it, 500whp mr2's have used these trannys without them breaking before" And unfortunately, he paid attention and now he wants an MR2 Turbo.

I drove with him in his turd cavalier, and he nearly killed me! He swore he was Paul Walker from the fast and the furious, and tried the dumbest ____ I have ever seen any1 do in a car. He revved his little ricer pos cav up to its redline and bounced off the rev limiter, its primered grey with a magnaflow exhaust just to let me know he was out side when i first met him. Huge Ricer way to say hello. Then he proceeded to show me how he drove this car around town. Lets see, he revved at a woman in her v6 eclipse, he would try racing dodge avengers and v6 mustangs. He tried passing a car on a single lane bridge at 90 mph in his cavalier, by hugging up against the bridge rail REALLY close. I swore I was going to die. Like I said, he is a real life version of Paul Walker from the fast and the furious. He even told me he wants to own an orange supra with a bodykit hjust like in fast and furious.

Now he wants to trade in his cavalier, for an MR2 Turbo. He totaled his last cavalier and bought an appropriate 500 dollar replacement. This is the kind of guy that drives his cars really hard, and totals them, and replaces them with another. I imagine he might burn through 3 or 4 dueces before he gets bored of them. He is the worst driver, he can barely handle a 100hp cavalier, and now I got him hooked on looking for 300whp mr2 turbos, and I do not think he can handle one. I think the man is going to kill himself, possibly some other people, and an already rare MR2 Turbo, I feel guilty.

Ive seen how his friends drive too. He is friends with a group of NA DSM ricers called cams and gears. There president was this kid named Harley I met one time. Hes quite well known with the local street racers around here, because he drives like a maniac. He would floor it through movie theatres, and pull the ebrake on his RS eclipse and do donuts. He died at the beginning of the year, less than a mile from my house, he was driving too fast in the rain at 2am, and came upon the turn and flipped it, was ejected because he wasnt wearing a seatbelt and got hit by another car, body unrecognizable. Everyone that knew him, all the street racers, not to talk bad on him, came to the conclusion that Natural Selection was the actual cause of death.

Jerry hangs out with this cams and gears clubs, and there all about cutting people off and driving like maniacs. THeyll change lanes really fast to make them look cool, and pull the ebrake while driving there cavaliers, civics and NA DSM's to get the back ends to drift out, in crowded traffic on fast roads. ANd now Jerry is getting an MR2 Turbo because of me, definitly the wrong person to possess this wonderful car.

Hes told me what his plans are for the car. Fiberglass the interior, neon underglows, an ebay bodykit, a FMIC (You read that right). The kid doesnt know ANYTHING about cars, let alone turbo cars. He treats all his cars like sh**.

Can anyone give me some insight or comments to not make me feel as bad about losing a duece to a kid who cant drive? I wish I hadnt shown him the car.

I drove him home once from highschool. This was before I had the MR2 Turbo. He mows my neighbors lawn down the street, and he stopped me in the morning to ask me about my MR2. He called me and then he told me he wanted to show me some parts for his Cavalier, and I thought Id be polite and see what he was doing to his Cavalier, not that I had any interest. When I showed up in the MR2, he was more interested in that, than showing me his Cavalier.

Other than that, I never hang out with the kid, I think he and his friends are idiots when it comes to driving.

hahahaha :lol2: , dam that was a funny story. But WHAT DID YOU DO!! you basically told him to go out and buy an MR2. I can just imagine that guy, I wouldnt be able to stand around him for 5 minutes before i started laughing insanely. And are you serious about harley? thats kinda sad but very funny when you put it along with this story. You need to cut the kids brakelines on the cavalier before he hoes to buy the 2. Seriously, you need to stop him. Favorite story of all time, im gonna tell all my friends.

so you're saying there's no way you can discourage him from buying an mr2? or even talking to him about his driving habits?


maybe ask him for another joyride and let the police know where you'll be driving?

since he doesnt no anything about an mr2..... maybe you can show him a fiero and tell him that its a new generation of mr2?...... Or you can just report that he is driving recklessly in your neighborhood and just have the cop pay attention to him more and put him in jail overnight and he'll somewhat learn his lesson.

It's your duty as a fellow '2er to save another 3SGTE from destruction!!

1) Tell him how expensive the parts are or how hard they are to get.
2) Better yet, tell him that girls hate guys that own one, that might work. :p
3) Tell him it's a drag owning such an old, old car and you miss the prestige of a newer GM model.

Good luck!

Is there any way we can get the message out to all mr2 turbo owners, not to sell this kid an MR2? He doesnt have money for one right now, but there not incredibly expensive either. Right now he drives a pos 500 dollar cav, and has a 2.4L cav motor in the garage he was gonna drop into it. I imagine if he sold all the car parts in his garage and the car, he might come up with 2000 dollars, and thats almost halfway there.

Please, if a kid Named Jerry from St.Louis calls you up asking to buy your MR2, dont tell him I said this, but tell him your not interested or already sold it. I am afraid he is gonna kill himself if he gets one of these, after riding with him the one time, which was the last time.

By the way, he totaled his last car, a cavalier, topping it out doing 140 (or so he claims) Somehow managed to walk away from the crash. IS it just me, or do you have to be retarded to even go over 100mph in a cavalier, I mean some cars werent meant to be raced, and if hes doin 160 in a modified duece, theres no walking away from that crash.

call the cops next time they have a street racing match and show them who's boss :)

and paul walkers driving in fast and the furious was bad, but not horrible... i'm sure this kid is nothing like that movie, he just wants to think he is... half of that ____ in hte movie is digitally altered anyway...

what a dumb f&*K... i can't understand why people don't get that the street racer phase has been out the window for awhile...
