It's not that way now, no, not at all. But the MR2 does give a "purer" driving experience which is the supposed cause for all of the Beetle buying hysteria.

I wouldn't rule it out.

People are stupid + will do whatever the auto shitbloggers say.

Man, I should have bought my ex's 2004 GTO and put that bitch in a bubble. They only made that model for ONE YEAR. So rare. Gotta be a 6 figure car soon

Nissan only made the 260Z in 1974, but it was such a flaming turd that nobody wants 'em now.

the chain is new, but has surface rust
sprocket is upsized, lower top speed more tq
he has the lower fairings, but he hadn't put them back on.






exhaust clip, and housemate telling me 600cc is too small an engine for my first bike (uwotm8) but he might have been saying that the fact it's short wheelbase makes it a poor choice?

I am really tempted

the money would either be spent on this, fun, fast alternate transportation, plus lane splitting... or a semi reliable beater Passat that I can drive into the earth

got a ride in pal's Stewart & Stevenson M1078.. it is a lot of fun. It really just feels like a big bus or tow truck, even though it weighs so goddamn much. Very solid feeling, composed, not a lot of rattling or clanking like I was expecting. And it's pretty quick!

also spotted this ferrari, 1.6 mil if I've ID'ed it correctly...

I have finally seen Ghetto's Little Red Rocket. I can now die a happy man inside Irma's twisting spiral of doom. Thank you. Thank all of you for making this happen.

thirdhand, "first generation" KO Racing engine lid fan shroud, ~450ish new, I got it for $135 delivered. Put another coat of gloss black on it (then fingerprinted it up,) bought some wire, shrink tubing, relay and a switch and put it on.

Debatable whether there is any real benefit, purists say that it was designed properly from the factory, just this little 5x5" slot for ventilation, rest of it covered w/ metal... but I know from experience that underhood temps w/ stock hood cover in california heat get WAYYYY out of control. Turbo all crammed back there against the firewall...

I'm guaranteeing you will see an improvement in underhood temps. Those look like they move some serious CFM. They just single-speed? Or could you set up a stepped voltage 3-speed config?

Single speed, really moves a lot of air but sounds like a garbage truck when I am idling through traffic. Adjustability would be nice to have, I will have to look into that.

There is definitely a noticeable improvement, no doubt.

People just question whether or not it's actually needed, MR2's super long cooling loop does a great job of keeping the engine cool, that all you're really cooling off w/ these fans are vac hoses and IC couplers.

At $385+ship I can see there being a need to debate it but... For what I paid I think it's well worth it.
