Toyota MR2 Rev 5: Reader's Car of the Week

While our weekly pick from Reader's Cars typically picks up on a new thread, sometimes it's nice to select something that's been pleasing a PHer for a little while - this MR2 is just such a thing.

Owned by PHer 'SonicShadow' since 2014 as a replacement for another MR2, this Revision 5 MR2 - a Japanese Domestic Market car, one of the last Mk2s - has been subject to a constant raft of upgrades and improvements over the past four years. So the rust has been sorted, the wheels and tyres swapped and suspension modified, in addition to the regular maintenance undertaken by SS himself.

Pleasingly the MR2 is getting plenty of use, too, the car now through 150,000 miles and driven on numerous track days and with fellow enthusiasts. It's even been to pick up a Christmas tree!

That continues right up until now in fact, the thread recently bumped thanks to the addition of new interior dash dials, more suspension work and a fresh MOT for another year of MR2 motoring. SonicShadow, we admire your commitment to the MR2 cause, and that's why it's Reader's Car of the Week - congrats!
