    So, question for you guys, has anyone owned a Toyota MR2 here?

    Followup; Do you like the 80's one:

    Or the 00s one:


    better? Personally I like the 80s models, but they are considerably harder to find.
    I own a 91 Mr2. It's a pretty fun car. I like the older ones better though, I'm not sure why though.

    This one. I want it. I've decided I want a GT/CS mustang. Rare, stands out and awesome.

    Oh and isnt an auto better for drag racing? I need to know if I want manual or not.

    Well it is. Unless you really know how to shift automatic would be better.

    Dual clutch automatic with a ratchet shifter is the way to go. You can smoke the manual guys off the line and up to the eighth mile but after that they have a little advantage on you.

    Speaking of noises and shit with steering parts. Our Lancer has been doing this for a while, while on a rough road it makes metal clinking noises. The noises sound like they're originating from the steering column. It doesn't feel any different from before, no play or anything.

    It's like this, but more of a metallic sound than a plastic one.

    My truck was doing this when I first bought it - it's actually incredibly common in my truck though (05 Silverado 2500).

    In my truck, the steering shaft goes from the steering wheel down to a universal joint type deal and then out through the firewall horizontally, I guess so that the steering column can collapse in an accident so that the energy can transfer that way instead of back through your body.

    Anyways, in the 2500 and 3500 Chevys, it is awful common that play develops in the universal joint (and in a bushing nearby, as well). GM's fix has been releasing "new designs" that work for a while, or alternatively injecting some really tacky lube into the joint to take up the space so that it can't rattle, which, again, fixes it for a short time.

    I can't say for sure that it's the same issue, but it was the intermediate steering shaft and that bushing in the steering column making a clunk noise when i hit bumps in my truck. There's no safety concern, play or anything else in the wheel, it's just an annoying noise.

    Yes except the average person doesn't paint right. I wouldn't trust myself with a spray can. I don't have a drive-way to work with, I need my vehicle regularly, and I don't have very steady hands.

    Not to mention, the quality of Spray Can paint is awfully low.

    There were two more FC's like mine but one left before i could get a picture and the other i had to give a ride over because it blew a coolant seal and wouldn't start. Such is life with a rotary i suppose. I passed the Supra on the way over to his house, too.

    I think I'm gonna spray paint my Golf black when the summer comes.
    The paint on it hasn't been touched since 1983 and it's in veeeeery poor condition.

    The black one without the hood and the white one with the wide body kit parked behind it were both LS swaps, 5.7 Lr V8 Corvette engines. Blue/Green pearlecent looking one in the driveway is the hosts. Little bit of background i guess. The stock silver FD is...well, stock. I still prefer the look of the FC's but that's just me.

    Edited:

    Justin is the spray paint wizzard. I still really want to see how the rest of the car looks painted black.
    Maybe I'll get in there with a nice sander and get that bondo fixed and paint the rest some time. It just takes a lot of work to do.

    Edited:

    Found a picture someone else took that shows there actually were more FC's:

    That does seem pretty pricey, is your car newer than 2001?

    Bonus for older cars they fall into two brackets... Under 1.6 and over 1.6 so mine is only 118 for 6 months, if it were in the modern tax brackets I dread to think how much it would cost.

    Don't you just love good design decisions?

    My car battery is under the passenger seat. Result? Nice shiny terminals, not a single bit of corrosion or rust.

    Could this



    Be the cause of my steering-wheel shaking? Its the only damage I could find on any of the car. Or, as I think, its something more.
