Wife needed an economical driver, her Expedition was sucking gas on the 2 hour round trip to work, so I ran across a 2000 Toyota MR2 Spyder with a blown engine for $3500, and she liked it. When I towed it home she says. "You didn't buy this for me, you got it for you!"
Looked for an engine and found a guy in PA on a Spyder forum with a 29k mile engine for $800, good deal but I had to wait for him to pull it, this was end of July. It's finally on the way supposed to get it Friday so this weekend I hope I end up with a running car and very few busted knuckles, having that anticipation, can't wait feeling.
I may try to talk her into taking it out to an autocross some weekend and see how many traffic cones I can hit. I will get to drive it to work in the mornings, I come home at lunch and she works 2nd, bring it home and ride my Goldwing back to work, fun fun.
