Hi! I'm Mark and I'm originally from the UK, but am studying in Fujiwara Japan as a student.

Over the past year or so, I've been saving up money for a car. Overall, I've saved to a grand total of 20,000v$.

With this money, I plan on buying a daily car, as cycling to school everyday is not the most fun thing to do at 6:00am.

I have been looking on AutoTrader for the last few days, and I saw someone called Fićo (juicybrate) selling a newly done-up Ar11 MR2. The asking price was 4500v$, but that was a bit too steep for me, so we decided on 4100v$

Here it is:





Cya Guys!

What is your plan to mods on MR2?

Not too much really, want to keep it daily-ish. However I am looking at some 14" rims and low coilovers.

Hey guys.

I've been mostly cleaning the MR2 today. I bought some aluminium piping from Halfords earlier on, and I've made a make-shift cage. There are no safety benifits from it, however. Just for looks!


^^New 'rollcage'


^^Bumpers sprayed with Halford's own gloss black^^


In other news, I realised I didn't want to do too much to my MR2, therefore I'd be getting bored soon; because of this, I've bought a project car: a Ford Focus ST!

^^After Purchase^^

^^...But it's had better days^^

^^At 10pm, I decided to take off the wrecked bumper and quarterpanel.^^

I have also ordered a new muffler, should arrive this week!



That's all from me for now!

It was imported by a previous owner, who had a whole collection of LHD Fords. Unfortunately he died recently :(

Hi guys,

So a big, and rather sad update today. I'd just received my Ebay muffler, and it sounded amazing. A little raspy, but I knew I could fix that with some new O-rings. However, when I went out to test the sound around Fujiwara, a drunk driver drove down the wrong way, and smashed right into the front of the Focus!

Here's some pics from after the crash:




The Focus will be on the Used Car Shop sometime today.

I did, but as the other driver had no insurance, I got no compensation! How unfair is that!

Hi guys!

New progress on the MR2. Painted the rollbars two days ago:
And the wheels!

Today I took her out for a spin around the local mountains. She did quite well:



That's all for now!

What a nice MK1 man ! I had MR2 Spyder RHD when I was 18, was a blast, never had opportunity to drive or even sit in one of these MK1's as yours, goodluck with your build and also sad to see your Focus go, setback is a setup for comeback ! :)

I'd rather it look good than be functional. Worst of all, I'll have to buy a new plate. No big deal. Form > Function

Thanks mate! Always loved the Mk2's. Where are you? Maybe we could arrange you to drive it at some point.
