Being of a certain age, inclination and situation I felt the "need" for a small sports car. After trawling various websites for information and considering various other Japanese, UK and European small sports cars the Toyota MR2 seemed to fit the bill and an old 'un would suit my budget. I acquired a 2002 model in June 2011 and it has been fun every time I have driven it, always in the sunshine with the top down. Still trawling for information yesterday I again visited the TOC and found that I have a problem and have been driving with my "ears" sticking out! The "ears" are the corners of the soft top/ hood that protrude if not tucked in when opening it. From the TOC I not only found the problem but also the solution - the correct fitment of a strap inside the roof lining of the hood, this serves to pull the "ears" in when opening the hood. Now I know what the "spare" strap is in the glove box and will be able to drive with my ears neatly tucked in when the MR2 emeges from its SORN hibernation. With such useful information freely available I joined the TOC last evening to say thank you and hopefully continue to gleen and perhaps pass on information as time goes by.
