what age are you? 10 Years ago Karma: 12
I realise this might be a bit of a swing and a miss post. Thought id throw it up anyway. We're all connected through a love of 20+ yr old sports cars and I thought it might be interesting to see the differences in age that Mr2 ownership attracts (+ I've always been intrigued to know how old some of you guys might be)

I'll start things off. Im (a young) 33

28. Pretty much full blown obsession with Japanese cars since fast and the furious. I love those cheesy ass movies.

39 same as Greg, a Toyota gene was identified in my blood at birth.

Only car without a Toyota badge I owned was a Mazda 323 at 15.

The Kawasaki AR-80, Kawasaki Ar-125, 1976 Yamaha RS 125, 1992 CBR400RR, 1998 CBR600F3, 1985 CBX750F, Racing sidecar with GSXR 1100 K series engine, and a ZZR 1100 engined one also.

I didn't step much away from the Toyota fold on four wheels.
Corrolla's, Celica's, Carina's, MR2's, Landcruisers, Hilux.

Aprillia RS125, Kawasaki ZXR 400, Honda VFR 400, Suzuki GSXR 600 srad, Yamaha R1 4xv, Suzuki GSXR 750 Slingshot, Yamaha R1 5jj, And the king of them all-a 1992 Honda Fireblade. Finally Mr2 MK2

If I could control myself on a bike I would be having one of those, but alas my next bike will be an unfaired machine as you can only go over 100 for so long before the wind tires you out.

Really cracking bike, beautiful too. Had a reputation for being a bit tank slapper happy cos of the 16inch front wheel but I never experienced that-had several of those on the more modern R1's though! A bit more upright than more modern sports bikes so easier to deal with over long distances as less stress on wrists and lower back. I took mine to the Assen GP in the Netherlands last year-greatest week of my life. Sold it in May as couldnt afford to keep car and bike Thankfully the Mr2 goes some of the way to scratching my motorbike itch!

Re: what age are you? 10 Years ago Karma: 62
I've heard people say that driving an MR2 is about as close as you can get to motorbike style handling. My uncle was a mad biker back in the 60's and 70's and he loved driving my mk2. I've never had a bike so wouldn't have a clue, what do ye reckon?

Anyway, back on topic, I'm 28, only driving since 24.

Had my MR2 for two and a half years now. Before that I had a Fiat Punto, a Volvo 480 and a Hyundai Accent was my first car.

I am 87 1/2 years old and I designed the MK1 MR2 when I retired from Ferrari with a crappy pension.

The only person older than me is RedMK1




Really 37 and owned 2xMK2 - 1xNA & 1xTurbo which is almost sold

Stopped counting after 40 but rumour has it i am 42

Have had MR2's for last 13 or so years - 91 G Limited and then 92 t-bar turbo, 93 red t-bar turbo (gen3) turbo and then NA SW20 Spider which turned into a Turbo Spider.

Spider is now the bane of my life but i could never see me parting with it. ON a nice day with the top down, (IMO) it is just plain hot !
