Somewhat a resto-mod project, I don't have a huge plan for this car as of yet, but I'm definitely going to continually add to this thread as I add to the car :) 

So a little bit about this MR2. I bought it in Stanley, Victoria, over 3 hours away from where I live, and it was owned by a older gentleman named Robb who had a nice stable of cars. This MR2 was a replacement for his previous SW20 which he unfortunately crashed, and before that SW20 he had an AW11 MR2 which he also regrets selling. I managed to find the owner of this car before Robb, and found out that the engine had been swapped around 2009. It's still at 3SGE but a fresher unit than what was originally in this car. Mileage on the engine is somewhat unknown, but the chassis has 313,xxx Kms on it.
