Thiswasntme submitted: Taken by a friend of mine (c)Marlon Taz Dacumos during a race, this is my 1987 Toyota MR2. Being something that’s been in our family for 19 years, it’s been driven daily to high school and college by two of my brothers and has now been with me for four years.
It’s been handed down to me at around 133000+ miles on its 3rd engine swap, but in the time that I’ve owned it, it has never failed me. Even though it’s boosted with a t3/t4, tuned with a first gen Link ECU, running on modified AE101 coilovers, along with many other modifications, the age and usage has taken its toll through rust and trim that’s been falling apart over time.
It can probably never go back to the way it used to be (especially the T-Bar seals, god.), it’s one of the most amazing cars to drive and learn on; even though it’s a bit of a pain to work through its small following (in the Philippines) and the scarcity in parts.
Kudos to you for keeping this car going as long as you have, and since it is kind of falling apart, you should just run it as hard as you can until the end. Gotta love little mid-engine cars though. I’m sure it’s a blast on and off the track. Thanks for submitting it and good luck keeping it going!
