Yesterday I was driving and pulled up next to a early 90's turbo MR2 (im assuming 91, im not sure if any of the other years were 16v twin turbo as was the 1991).. Anyway, it wasnt in "spectacular" condition, but it wasnt TOO banged up, had a "used car dealer" licensed plate on it. But as i inched up next to him.. i noticed he was right next to me..lol it was a right hand drive... and like I said it wasnt all done out or anything, so im assuming this came over as such?? I was just stunned because normally someone in the US driving a right drive "sports" car, its very clean, or all worked out..this was a plain MR2 turbo, scratched up paint job, with nothing aftermarket that i noticed other than an exhaust.. there is really no point to this post, just an interesting find i thought while out cruising.

maybe it was a sleeper. Or maybe he just got it, i mean, you noted it had dealer plates, maybe he just got it, and is gonna trick it out soon.

yah cheaper to buy a pos if your gonna do a ton of body work anyways...maybey he's thinkin full carbon fiber lol ;D and then he's prolly gonna build the engine so why bother to get one with no miles on it when it'll be new anyways :) but yah that is very interesting. I have yet to see a right hand drive car yet and I think that would be sweet to see. I would even like to sit in it just to see how it feels.

i agree, i think sitting in one alone would be wierd... i been driving for 10 yrs since i was 16..and i just cant imagine getting a car in a split second and crap is all backwards..loll plus my negotiation of turns would be off for a the first while im sure... and this is my first right hand drive car encounter as well... other than at like SEMA , but on the street, first one ive seen. other than the mail mans jeep..lol

wow, nice find! i agree, it would be weird to sit in a right-hand drive car. personally, i don't htink i could ever drive one, everything would be off and i would get very frustrated.

I saw a right hand drive skyline on campus last year, but therewas a chick driving it too! Ive been overseas where they drive on the opposite us, its def weird! My dad drove (he was there for work and we all went to visit him) and he said the first time he went for the blinker the windshield wipers came on lol
