That paint is astonishing for its age. Old reds are usually faded out pretty badly.

To be clear though, the paint is definitely not original.  I don't know the exact history, but I'd put it no older than 5 years old.  The paint job is pretty damn good though, with just some minor orange peel on one panel that I'll take care of and wet sand in the spring.  The facking front plate is going in the spring as well, can't f'ing stand it.

Are you gonna get seasonal plates?

Yep, that's the plan.  I've been able to get away with no front plate (non-seasonal) on the S2000 for the last 9 years, but the MR2 is too loud and stands out too much to get away with it.  So, I'll have the privilege of paying $$ just so I can have one less plate.  lol

Thoughts about throwing it on the dashboard?

I'd have to do my usual peeking through the legislation to see if there's a regulation citing where the plate must be mounted, but if it merely says "front and back" then it need not necessarily be mounted ;)

He's in NB. Easiest just to get a seasonal plate. He's not going to be driving the car in the middle of the winter anyway.

Doesn't say bumper, specifically. Just says it must be exposed and conspicuous in the front and rear.

I wanted one so badly back in the day.  Yours looks fantastic.  Well done.

I've seen a few driven like that on a regular basis. Usually on cars that look to be babied.

Just noticed this 93 on autotrader.  If they are asking $11,500 for a non turbo (albeit 2 years newer) but with more mileage than mine, I wonder what I could truly get for mine?  Absolutely not looking to sell though, more curious than anything.

Rather than start a new thread, I figured I would just post it here.  I plan on getting a personalized rear license plate for the MR2.  Just looking for some suggestions on what it should be.  :)

Definitely want to keep it to car type names and nothing brewery/beer related.  Not sure if Mister2 is taken, but I like that as well.
