Car show


We displayed the MR2 at a car show today sponsored by the Topsail Wrestling team. There were over 60 cars there from 1937 to 2010...of course we were the only electric car so there were plenty of questions. Thanks to Brady, Adam, Marissa and also Rob from last year for showing up to help answer the tough questions!
Next week we show the car at the Wilmington men's club.

New steering wheel

Thanks to an 18 year old recall, the MR2 now has a brand new steering wheel! I had noticed on the MR2OC message board that there was a recall on the MR2 steering wheel dating way back to 1991 and there may be a chance my car would benefit. I do not know why they had the recall, but our wheel was showing the effects of age and ozone degradation on the foam padding. A quick check with the dealer showed our car was eligible! We went with black even though our interior is blue because we plan on changing the interior color soon.
