Got a 85 Toyota MR2 here, its one of the nicer ones left here in MN. Its light blue, obviously. and its a 5 speed too! I saved this car from a owner who didn't know what they were doing, I've thoroughly gone through the car and fixed everything that's needed to be fixed so it is reliable again, you can thank me later. Comes with original wheels, 2 boxes of all this really rad extra stuff and every part the previous owner deemed necessary to take off, except the timing belt cover, the gnomes took that one. This car is great! It gets awesome mileage, i deliver sandwiches part time and usually get 35-40 mpg, its also one of the best handling cars I've ever owned. Also this car pulls the ladies harder than Burt Reynolds in a DeLorean with Phil Collins in the tape deck, a few guys too if that's your thing, i wont discriminate, personally not my thing though.
The engine is a 4A-GE, same as AE86 Corolla and AE111 Corolla fame. I love this engine, it falls on its face under 4500rpm because Toyota decided to make the intake ports the size of baseballs so it ruins the flow of the head at low RPM but otherwise is a stellar engine especially for being designed in 1980, and is one of the best sounding 4 cylinder engines ever (second to the Honda B16B, and Subaru EJ257). If you're wondering where you've heard 4A-GE before its because Takumi Fujiwara in Initial D has that engine in his AE86 but he has the 20V from the 90s i just got the 16v from the 80s. pfft the 1980s were cooler anyway, AND this engine you can actually find parts for at Autozone, unlike that JDM 20v Crap. Speaking of such, parts for this are cheap as hell, alternator $80, water pump $30 i love it!
The exhaust on this sucks though, get a new one. I just was in a pinch and fabbed this up with a friend in like an hour.
I'm a semi motivated seller but I'm ready to sell it if anyone wants it. If you are out of state you are responsible for shipping and there is no warranty expressed or implied.

According to Consumer Reports, the automotive brands that stand out in the minds of car buyers are, in order: Toyota, Ford, Honda and Chevrolet. This news comes after the magazine polled its readers, asking them to take into account vehicle quality, safety, performance, value, fuel economy, design/style, and technology/innovation - which are the factors that car shoppers are most influenced by.

It's important to note that this award is only about perception. In other words, it's perceived quality, not actual quality. "Often, perception can be a trailing indicator, reflecting years of good or bad performance in a category, and it can also be influenced by headlines in the media," said Jeff Bartlett, Consumer Reports deputy automotive editor.
The brand that made the biggest jump in perception amongst Consumer Reports readers is Tesla, which posted an impressive 47-point gain to finish in fifth place. Subaru is also notable for finishing in the top 10, despite being one of the smaller manufacturers doing business in the US. Scroll down below for all the details from Consumer Reports, if you're so inclined.
Toyota's decision to move its US headquarters from its longtime home in Torrance, CA, to Plano, TX, was one of the biggest stories in the automotive industry this spring. With several months since the announcement, more details about the plan have leaked out. It seems that pulling up stakes could mean an even larger shakeup in the Toyota workforce than first thought.

According to Automotive News, Toyota intends to hang onto around 50 percent of its workforce in the move to the Lone Star State. However, even that figure might be optimistic. According to an unnamed insider speaking to AN, there is a fear the actual number could be closer to 30 percent. For comparison, Nissan retained about 42 percent of its workers in its move from California to Tennessee.
The actual percentage making the move is a mystery because Toyota is still rewriting its job descriptions under a single set of guidelines. The changes affect benefits, bonuses and the reporting structure, according to Automotive News, and employees' reactions could play a big role in who decides to go. According to an unnamed worker speaking to AN, the wait is hurting morale. Some people are even applying at the nearby Honda headquarters.
You'd be forgiven for thinking just because the Lexus LFA has ended its production run (it's been over a year now) that Toyota would have ceased its development. You'd be forgiven, but Gazoo Racing is here to tell you you'd still be wrong.
One of Toyota's many works racing teams, Gazoo is returning to the 24-hour endurance race at the Nürburgring this year with a trio of entries. One is based on the Toyota GT86 (which we know as the Scion FR-S), and one is essentially the same LFA that it's entered in years past. But the third vehicle is dubbed Code X.
It's also based on the LFA, but its 4.8-liter V10 engine has been bored out to 5.3 liters, raising its output to untold levels. It's got a full carbon-fiber chassis and a range of other enhancements that Gazoo isn't telling us about just yet, but they should turn the LFA Code X from a road-going supercar beyond a racecar and into a rolling research lab. Considering that Gazoo has been racing at the 'Ring since 2007 and fielding versions of the LFA there since 2008, it'll be interesting to see how the Code X version fares.
