There isn't a single high-glamour part on Brad Bedell's MR2. The body is basically stock, the interior is basically stock, the stock suspension geometry is in place, the brakes are dang near stock and the engine is out of a Camry. Come on, is there anything more run of the mill than a Camry?
The second-gen MR2 Turbo's (1991 to '96) looks have withstood the test of time.
