This vehicle is currently located in CALIFORNIA, but is currently registered in Colorado Pueblo. The reason I am sellingis because I need a bigger vehicle, currently purchasing some property, and the mr2 is not an ideal mover's car. Also I believeI'm in no position to hold on to it as an only car, it is very difficult to keep a 28 year old car in good condition without havingany down time.

I bought this car back in October 2014 in New Mexico for my graduation gift to myself since it was one of my dream cars. I guess you can consider this car a barn find but it wasn't kept inside one unfortunately, that is why thepaint is not in the best condition,


Mechanically and electrically this car is great. Its been daily driven since i had it. There are only two electrical problems on this car. 1. The instrument panel background lighting when you turn on the lights can not be illuminated. They work, but something keeps shortening out the head light switch which I replaced twice. 2. The driver side window switch does not work going down, but the autodown switch works great to lower it. Thats about it. I maintained this car because I bought it as a graduation gift to me. But I need something much larger and convenient.
The damage on the left rear corner was caused by the last owner and someone backing into it.
I'm in the process of buying a home, so I need a car that can haul a little more than one container. And something to play with later on.
This car had a lot work done to make it good canyon/track ready car. Its highly modifiedand that scares people, but I havedone my research to modifieditwhile keeping it reliable. At the same timewhile performing beyond other compact cars.Believe me when I say this car is quickoff the line. Just to compare performance I have taken this car to the track after all the mods were done. Let's say SRT8 jeeps, Mustangs 5.0, andSS Camero's could not catch thislittle car until about 80 mph. (3rd gear is a bit long)

Modifications/OEM/Aftermarket parts


Lots of work has been done to the car to make it really quick. Everything listed below was done under my ownership since October 2014. Also all original parts and authentic aftermarket parts and wheels come with the car including a car cover.

About 15,000 or so back, the headgasket went out along with the clutch. While using genuine Toyota gaskets and parts I decided to do a little extra while the engine was out.
