Hadn't seen a single MR2 since we've arrived but yesterday I saw a minty red MK2 turbo driving south on Scottsdale Road!

Is the scene small down here or is everyone hiding?

Seems like its pretty hard to get all of us in one place and time. something always comes up ya know? like a month back we met at the scottsdale pavilions and there were about 10 mr2s. Thats the most I've seen in this area.

MR2 spottings other then my own and another project, seem to be like unicorn spottings, very rare. Least that's how it is for me.

Actually I do occasionally see. white MKI at the offices at Mountainview Rd and 90th St. Don't think its a board member though

My MKI is my daily driver and I barely see any more as well. I do know that there are a lot of em here and from what I gather, most are MKII. They are a rare sight but I do see some every once in a while! I also see a white MKI thats usually parked at the Red Mountain Tire place just down the street from me. I think the guy works there.

Hoping to get my MR2 down here someday to rejoin the community. Maybe I'll find a beater AW/SW to tide me over soon down the road :)

I do see MR2's every once in awhile on the north side. I'm assuming none of them are on the board or concerned with the mr2 scene. Always give the "what's up" wave...no response.

I'm tempted to bring my MK1.5 up there one of these days. I know of an old school import crew here in Tucson that plans on going to the pavs this coming weekend. If I make it back from Cali I'll see about bringing it up

MKI and MKII cars are RARE to see these days.

MKIII are still uncommon, but most the owners aren't enthusiasts like us. :thumbdown

That's how it was back in New England but I figured with the lack of rust down here I'd see MR2's everywhere! haha

I see MK3's all the time. Most have no clue about other MR2's

ZOMG! Just saw a red MK2 pulled over on the 202 freeway near kyrene.

Hope you got your car running, wish I would have been in the right hand lane would have stopped :(

Spotted a Red Mk2 MR2 in Scottsdale on the freeway this afternoon with a MR2OC decal in the window.

I just got a black supercharged MK1. I'll put it on the road after I sell off an AE86.

I drive 100 miles a day from North Peoria to Chandler, every day and I think I've seen 4-6 SW20s in like 5 years. Pretty rare sightings indeed.
