Looking for an MR2/Other sports car

Forum: Web OS and Palm OS - www.geekzone.co.nz
I've been looking for a daily driver for a while now.  Something cool, something fuel efficient and sporty, perhaps convertible for the coming summer and most importantly...Acceleration that gives you butterflies every time you hit second gear.

The MR2 Turbo fits all that criteria.  It's a two seater convertible that does 600KM to a tank that handles like crazy and goes like stink.  The trouble is, I can't find one that isn't totally abused or destroyed.

I have 6.5K to spend.  My mechanic suggested I got a cheap automatic shell that drives and then sourced a manual genII gearbox, gen3/gen4 forged motor, turbo, intercooler...etc.

I'm not sure I can be arsed, but it would be fun!  I just don't know anybody with the skills to help the project along and it would cost thousands to pay someone else to do it.

While MR2 feels perfect, my mechanic said there are plenty of other faster cars that will rip my face off much more than an MR2.  The Supra, Soarer, EVO, GTO T-T, WRX...etc either are too expensive, have lots of problems or get stolen every 10 minutes.

Any suggestions?  Anyone already doing an MR2 build I can tag along on before I embark on my own?  Does anyone have a forged 3SGTE running 20psi to show me what the fruits of my labor might feel like?

Cheers!
