In my 7 years of owning my MR2 i have gone through
5 different exhaust systems
2 After Market seats (now back to stock)
3 sets of wheels ( from 16s to 17s and now 18s)
2 motors (NA to Turbo)
2 body kits (Border Racing then Toyota Racing Development Widebodykit)
1 accident (in the canyons, wasn’t my fault. On coming truck was riding the middle lane)
Countless tickets and headaches but i will never let the police stop me from doing what I love.
Only 1 speeding ticket I received for going 60 on a 50. -___-
Anyway just thought i’d share real quick what a real car enthusiast is all about.. I’ve gone through a lot with my MR2. I’ve done a lot of good things and bad things. Made many smart and stupid decisions, not only with regards to my car, but with life as well. There were many times where I have almost sold or traded it for another because of so many things that has gone wrong. But i think a real car enthusiast never gives up on what they have. I see so many kids buying already fixed up cars then crashing it because they don’t really know it’s limit, capability, and potential. I believe when you build your own car from scratch, you’ll learn to appreciate it even more and will know when you can and can’t take that hard turn. It’s kinda like life. What makes a good person/car is: patience, persistence, love, integrity, moral values, spirituality, forgiving, humble, inner intelligent and HEART!
