What year is that? My dad's '88 has different looking vents on the passenger side, and he had different OEM wheels too. What swap are you doing?

It amazes me how many people want this car. People are always coming up to him and asking him if he wants to sell it.

Wow, that's a nice engine. That car's going to fly. :cool:

My dad's looking for a beater right now so that he can preserve the MR2. It has like 210,000 miles on it and he's the original owner. He just slapped some 16's on it recently and it looks way better than before. It's the perfect size for that small of a car.

yeah i agree. i had some 16 inch konig holes on mine for a while but i gave them to my dad for his accent cause they where just rotting away on my two, and yeah the thought of how fast the car will be gets me all exited.

Nice 2 tone, i still prefer the yellow on any mr2, but it looks good. i had the yellow on my old 88 sc. It was in 87 the mr2 got visual upgrades, with a front lip, different tails, different side vent, t-tops on some, and again in 88 with the sc engine lid. Yours looks good so far, and with what you have planned it will definetly be fast, good luck.
