Greeting all,
Just picked up a 1987 MR2. I have wanted one since 1985 when the MR2 came out. In 1985, I worked at a 7-11 while in college. There was a Toyota Dealership across the street from the store and the salesmen couldn't take the MR2s out without having a customer to go on a test-drive. They would come in and tell me I had to come test drive the MR2... so I did, at least 15 times. I had a great time and so did the salesmen. Thirty six years later I finally got one!

I have only owned pickups and SUVs up to this point. I got into motorcycling and have had several. My current motorcycles are a 2012 Kawasaki Concours 14 and a 2018 BMW gs1200 Rallye. My current four wheel vehicle is a 1997 Isuzu Trooper with 352,000 miles on it. TBH, I spend more time in the bikes than I have on vehicles.MR2 and ripping up some of the roads in Oregon that I have reserved for the bikes.

Looking forward to learning more about the capabilities of the MR2

Congrats man, and welcome. I'm out on the coast just north of Tillamook with my 1986 that I've had for almost 13 years, which is my third. I bought my first one in 1997. My wife expects that I'll be buried in it when I'm old and gray, unless I can ever afford to move up to an Elise/Exige as I feel that's really the only car that could deliver the same feeling at the AW11.

There's a great shop in Oregon City called KO Racing, if you're close to that area. They tend to focus on the MK2 turbo more, but may be a good place to contact if you need any maintenance done. Not sure of any other shops in Oregon though. You'll enjoy the car, I promise.

Thanks for the tip. I try to make a trip out to Tillamook every couple months to hit up the Tillamook Smoker outlet store and get some squeaky cheese. Looking foward to running 22 from the casino to 101. I usually do it on motorcycle, will be fun to do it in the MR2.
