The first generation Toyota MR2 (short for Mid-engine Run-about 2-seater) was a lightweight 2-seater built from 1984 to 1989, powered by a small inline-4 engine. You can pickup a used MR2 for next to nothing, but it might wiser to pickup the best example you can find because when these appreciate, the nicest ones will see the biggest gains. Find this 1989 Toyota MR2 offered for $7,500 in Lynn, MA.
This MR2 has only 32,367 miles on the odometer according to the seller, and is probably the nicest first generation MR2 you will find for sale. The seller describes it as in "amazingly excellent condition."
Inside you will see a 5 speed "manuel" shifter mated to a mid-mounted 4A-GE 1.6 liter inline-4 borrowed from the Toyota Corolla.
