Hello everyone,

My name is Larry Richardson and I'm a proud owner of a minty 1988 Toyota MR2 Supercharged which I imported back in 2003 from California to Winnipeg.  It has approximately 73k original miles and no rust anywhere, even underneath (took several months to find a minty rust free southern MR2 SC).  This winter I went ahead with a head gasket replacement which has since turned into an engine rebuild/refresh due to some corrosion pitting on the block deck from failed HG.  Oh well, just an excuse to upgrade the oem 4AGZE pistons from 8.1:0 CR to 8.9:1 and throw in a set of Cat Cams and a Fidanza flywheel to give the car a little more pep.  I'm a little tied up with the engine rebuild but hope to be on here checking out other local cars and maybe selling/buying a few items in the near future (always looking for a mint HKS oversize 4AGZE crank pulley).  Anyways, hope you enjoy my photos and I'll try and check in on this website occasionally to see whats happening in the local car scene.  :chooch:

                  Flickr works well, but you can also upload more than one attachment by clicking "more attachments"
