Blue 2

After Lawrie's first MR2 met it's untimely end, he went for no less than 48 hours before the replacement was acquired. This car was, and remains a project, and which has never been 'quite right', but it very much for fills Lawrie's love of Pop ups. 

Current Status - MOT Expired, requires replacement sills 

History

She is a 1993 SW-20 Rev 3, armed with a 4 cylinder 2 litre 3S-GE mounted behind the two seats, The MR2 has a fearsome reputation for snap understeer, but when set up right, handles amazingly. It also has pop up headlights. Which are the coolest feature ever added to a car. 

Purchased as a project, which was missing key parts that could be salvaged from Lawrie's first MR2, including, but not limited to Driver's door, the entire interior and dash, rear bumper, lights, bonnet, wing, and various other bits of trim. On a return the road, the car always sounded bad, something which was originally accredited to the engine being at some 230,000 miles, but eventually turned out to be an ill fitting exhaust manifold and downpipe, which has proven time and time again to be a pain in the backside. The exhaust leak ruins the sound and enjoyment of driving the car, and as a result, Lawrie is yet to rack up a large mileage in it. That said, it remains at the top of Lawrie's list of all time favourite and best cars.
Due to the amount of parts that have come from other cars, it's frequently referred to as Frankentwo.  
Currently, the exhaust woes have been silenced, but on investigation before going in for MOT the Sils were found to need replacement, and arch repair is also required.
