I purchased my 86 MR 2 in 1989. I was working as a Toyota Technician for my local dealer and this one came in from auction one day it had 49k miles on it at the time, I was smitten by the MR 2 bug already since my older sister purchased a 85 model a few years before. After putting on another 180k miles thru 27 years it has become a old friend. My 2nd MR 2 was purchased as a blown up transmission basket case on e-bay I noticed it was a very early production model and felt the urge to preserve it. After nursing it back to roadworthy condition it still serves as my daily driver. I have a soft spot for vintage Honda's too but since my 5 years as a Toyota wrench I seem to gravitate to these models since they are so familiar to me.
