Toyota MR2 Mk1a AW11…my midship runabout

Say hello to my newest purchase, say hello to project “SuperMario”. It’s a 1986 MR2 Mk1a or AW11. Imported from the US in 1992 to Sweden, 20+years later to Germany and it now lives with me in Luxembourg 🙂

As it hasn’t seen any snow, ice and salt (yes, it’s winter here!) since many many years, I picked it up with my neighbor’s tow truck. Thanks Yann!

Update on my KE25 and GT86

As for the GT86, it’s sold. Got a new daily already, something more practical, a station waon, it isn’t jap though! So I don’t know if I’ll show it here.

As for the KE25, F I N A L L Y the new shoes are on. Took me 11 months from when I put my first order on yahoo japan untill I got them together and mounted. I’m so so happy with the outcome!

They are WEDS Racing Tri 6.5x14ET-5 and 7x14ET-1 wrapped in quite skinny 165/60/14 tires. For a non fender flared KE, I think it looks tits! Needs a tad more low in the front though. Will have my mate Pentti fab me some short strokes 😉
