    Hello all from the Isle of Skye

    Hello to all, from a windy yet warm and biblically rain-lashed Isle of Skye

    Am looking forward to getting my new 1987 Mk1b, which will be my third mr2 mk1. It's being fully restored by user gafr21, hello Dafydd, diolch yn fawr iawn.

    Had a brand new mk1a in 1986, gorgeous. Then in 1998 I got myself a rusting 1989 mk1b in pink, which rotted away to its death in 2001.

    Mr2s aside, I've been driving various Subarus in recent years, most recently a savage 3.0L flat six Legacy Spec B, which is up for sale right now because got to make room for the new mr2, so it's yours if you're interested.

    Have also got another Subaru (Forester diesel) and a ten year old Landy with big tyres on it, which is fun.

    And...
    Confession: Am currently getting used to my first 997 gen ii C2S as well, traumatised by this experience.

    Three is a good number, I am on my third!

    Welcome to the club!

    I quite fancy a legacy but a) you are long way and b) my OH would go loopy if I bought another car at the moment.

    The 245 bhp, N/A, flat-six Legacy 3.0 is near Derby at the moment, so as to be nearer civilisation just for this very reason. PM me if you'd like to take a no-obligation look. But can't do anything about OH. Selling it because I just don't drive it enough now.[[endff-topicness. ]]

    My OH it is that bought me the latest mr2.
