hello! st165 rally car/mr2

Post by 3-S-G-T-E » 12/07/18 11:14

Hi! i am returning to this site after not owning an mr2 for about 7 years! :yahoo:

In about 12 to 18 months it is currently my intention to look around for a special mr2 to complete my garage! although i may have to be patient for the sort of 'keeper' i am after.

I am also currently sympathetically restoring another 3sgte engined car, an ex-works supported ST165 rally car i got from a barn in ireland 6 years ago, ongoing project pics here for those that are interested!

Wow! that St165 is awsome! I love that oldschool rally details. Looks really good and it has to be pure joy. Thanks for posting so many pics, I can see a lot of work done. Also I love the gear knob and.. would you sell that pair of Tom's-OZ wheels laying over there? hah.

What gen is the MR2 you're willing to buy?

Regards!

Hi and thanks! it is a labour of love! The Toms wheels are an interesting story - £75 for three wheels off ebay! the seller didnt really know what they were; he got them from a garage clearance. I'm still looking for a 4th wheel however! :)

TBH i am after a trd2000gt.... i am aware i may have a long wait and an empty wallet though :p

hi and welcome
TRD proper or replica?

if replica then get one built, panels available (Patrick - headcase on here does some).
if a proper recorded original TRD..... think you just joined a long line of people.

I just joined a long line of people! :laughing

But i have a realistic budget and no time frame so we'll see... My st165 rally car is one of six so the trd's are relatively common.... :) (tongue in cheek, sort of!!).

I know it will not be easy/quick/cheap but nothing worth doing is easy, right?! ;)
