Unfortunately this one is a auto with paddle shifters (which is fine in a way). I'd prefer a manual but with only 1000 made in the world I couldn't be too choosy.

Lol... I rarely use Wikipedia for that reason alone. Maybe the yellow one was a 15 model (or earlier year)?

The RS 2.0 was a limited edition and a last hurrah for this body style (and for Scion as a whole). With only 1000 made worldwide you shouldn't see yourself coming and going. For the 17 they changed up the body slightly and boosted the engine by 5hp (big dealRolleyes ). Some say the car needs more than 200hp and I'd agree to an extent. The thing is, this car wasn't made for pure straight line speed. Not that it's slow by any means but you won't see me line up against a Corvette. But it's a nice all around package and I love the way it handles. If you put much more hp into it I fear that would upset the balance the car has.

I get to decide what my life looks like, not the other way around.

Indeed, it strikes me as being more akin to two of my personal favorite sports cars, the Honda S2000 and the Datsun 240Z. Small, light, RWD cars that punch way above their price bracket. Wouldn't want to put either up against a Corvette in a quarter mile, but I'd take both in a heartbeat for an autocross.

You'll see quite a few of these (modified to a certain extent) at autocross events. Though I figure a well put together Miata will still win most of the time. I agree the S2000 was a wonderful car and from what I hear, they might be bringing it back. We can only hope.

RE: What's your wheels?
The obsession grows.

We just got Saturn #12 home...

We've got 6 driveable and several for parts.

The new one is a 1998 SL2, a twin cam engine 4 door, auto transmission.

It's the third one I've bought with a thrown connecting rod. It' S not a design problem. It's dumb owner. Driving at highway speeds in 2nd or 3rd gear. The oil boils.

So bad - it needs an engine.

Good - the body is pretty rust free - and somebody had just put on all new exhaust, and a new driveline subframe. About $1000 worth of parts.

I paid $200.

The Miata with a 5 liter engine sounds fun.

Sorta like the guys who use d to take a TR7 and wedge in a Chevy smalblock....

RE: What's your wheels?
Just stopped and looked at a 72 MB 230 ( Hardtop) the same color as that, two weekends ago.....


The SO said she wouldn't mind driving it...

$2500.

I doubt it's still there...

I miss my old 300d...
