Love At First Sight — I have owned my 1989 Toyota MR2 since it was brand new. It has ran like a little top from day one. I still LOVE it! No problems with the exception of the paint job. I have had such good luck with it, that despite the $2,000 - $2,875 supposed value of it in today's market, I'm getting ready to get a new $1,000 paint job and $300 worth of new stylish rims. Why not? She's been good to me, why shouldn't I be good to her? Right?

Sw20 Turbo, Closest You Can Get To A Ferrari For Pocket Change — One of the cheapest sports cars you can buy and often the cheapest way in to performance car ownership. Early chassis can be hard to control on the limit but very few reward as well as this does, add that to being able to remove the T Bars for summer time this really is a nice summer car

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Masses of tuning parts

Cons: The image often attached to it.
