Hi all. Just purchased the MR2 recently during a bad fit of nostalgia (my previous 2 was totaled about 10 years ago). I also just moved to the area and am looking forward to meeting some of you folks.
Cheers.

PS - this website appears to be a fantastic resource. Glad it exists.

I bought my MR2 so that I would have a dedicated track car. I've started doing less autocrosses with it this year so that I can take it out for track days. Fantastic car on all fronts. Sadly because of my racing schedule, I rarely make it to MR2 events.

Hi everyone, I've had my MR2 for about 5 years now and have finally gotten around to giving it the attention it deserves. It currently has 70k original miles and is completely stock minus an intake and updated suspension bushings, tierods, ball joints, etc.

The past few years I've kept my MR2 in storage back in Asheville while going to college at NC State (if anyone sees this who goes to state and is interested in a car club lmk). My Ion Redline has been my daily and track car, I've drag raced, autocrossed and done a few Driftwater track events up in Moyock, NC.

I recently bought a wrecked '89 s/c to sell off body and interior parts, but will keep the 4agze/transmission and will be performing a light rebuild and performance build on it. I may either sell it then or drop it into an aw11 roller or ae86. It will be my first time tearing an engine apart but with my big green book and this forum I fell confident doing the job.

Can't wait to meet some of you in the future, silverbullet pointed me towards this forum about a month ago so thanks to him a lot!

Here are some pics of my cars:

Just Moved to NC

Name: Bob Lieberman

Residence: Mooresville, NC

Just moved to NC from Connecticut. Was a member of the New England MOC for many years. Have owned a 91 SW20 for about 9 years. Pretty much bone stock except for 17" Toyo proxies with Montegi rims that I put on about 6 years ago. Nice not to have to put my car to sleep for the winter months any more!

Let me know when things start up again in the spring. Looking forward to seeing new cars and faces.

UPDATE:

Ryan Wyke
Age: 27
Occupation: Sales
I live in Winston Salem, NC.
I'm also a motorcycle enthusiast who currently soaks up the road on a Vstrom.
I've owned a few other 2nd Gens, but just recently found an all original 94 NA in red.
I'll be doing some general maintenance and trying to stay away from the Parts For Sale section while being more active around these parts again.
