Two much of a good thing.

is one of the biggest parts of car culture; sure that any of us can think and remember the first time we bonded with a friend or member over the joy of machines. The together of like-minded individuals is what makes the entire exist at all, be it the world of car shows, or just cruising the with your buddies on a night. This mentality is the behind any car club, big or small, and as a at large of a tightly knit car myself, I know how deep roots run.

When we met Gerard Del Dios and Johne we knew these guys serious about their for cars, namely the two street-sweeping we have before us here, coming together for a feature in Tuner . While these two share many similarities, the two men the builds each have stories that brought together as brothers from mothers sharing the love of funky early ’90s

In the teal corner, meet Hailing from Glendora CA, 27-year-old nurse first his search for a clean MR2 about years ago. Gerard has plenty of other cars in his including a ’89 Corolla, a a Lexus G300, and a Yamaha R6 but none of those really to his personal style and taste the MR2. Ever since I remember I wanted to have and an MR2, Gerard says. up with an older brother who was into the car scene, namely Toyotas, shaped Gerard’s from a young age. enough, it was Gerard’s brother who first located this car for on Craigslist, and although the teal was not his first choice, Gerard have been happier to see the car in his own a mere matter of hours

Gerard’s MR2 has come quite a way since he first picked it up a mismatched set of wheels and minor and tear. Today, the car is damn spotless inside and out. The Gerard has gone with for styling is subtle and based on a of OEM+ mantra; the car almost (aside from the wheels) it could have rolled out of the this way, with its aero choices and choice JDM The MadPSI front lip adds a touch to the original front end with amber front signals, and that’s pretty the extent of the work on the body up Gerard isn’t going for crazy here, just a and simple look. The subtle continues in back by a ’94-spec wing and JDM Kouki taillights. the most substantial modification to the are the pulled fenders on all four helping make room for the Sprint Hart CPR

wheels Gerard has had custom for this application. Originally 17 in diameter, these CPRs been re-barreled with a lip, coming out to a final of 18×9.5 +12mm up front and +15mm in the rear. In person, wheels look straight-up They are huge, but somehow look just right on the a street car perspective, that is. is quick to admit that he track this car, and nothing wrong with at all. The suspension has been to fit the large wheels and lower the height massively, thanks to a set of Flex coilovers.

Even though the MR2 is not a racetrack-shredding it has plenty of getup to blast the roads. Gerard has gone a KO Racing Street Brawler turbo kit with the usual mods (boost controller, system upgrades) to give him a bit of kick. This upgrade is a modest one but good for about 260 according to the manufacturer (with mods), so Gerard’s MR2 is not exactly a

The interior cabin of the lean-mean-sea-foam-green is not heavily modified, although the bits have been where needed. The factory tan seats remain, which is quite refreshing. The contrast is with the black dash, and the color looks very when paired with the paint color. Two-tone is not to pull off, but it works A few small gauges and a Personal wheel are expectantly in place, but the is very low impact and modest. drives this car a lot, so he to keep it comfortable.
