Here we go again - Rossymond’s SW20
My eyes lit up with excitement and I honestly couldn’t believe my luck.
My heart had bought it before my brain had thought about it and the wife’s exact words were “here we go again, it best sound as good as the others did”
The story starts in 2005, my first SW20 was purchased after spotting one at a meet in the UK on a gloomy winters morning.
Since then there’s been over 10 in various guises the most noteworthy being a zircon blue rev2 turbo I bought as a hulk and resurrected.
Unfortunately the love story came to an end in 2009 with the GFC claiming everything I had my wife and I started a family. We moved to Australia for a fresh start and well here we are.
10 odd years later, 3 kids and a lot patience I saw a blue mr2 on Facebook in a bit of a sorry state and instantly I messaged the owner and organised to view it.
With a seized engine but a spare forged motor from WTF and a bunch of spares, I’ve taken the plunge and as I type this I’m prepping to collect it.
I’m lucky to own a mechanical shop and a detailing and protection studio in Brisbane and I guess here begins my journey (again).
The goals are 400whp, as stock as possible to look at (except wheels and the essentials), as original as practical and mint.
Paintwork and interior will be repairs and perfected by my team and then treated to a full body PPF kit, with the goal to keep this one forever (or until a white tbar rev5 turbo comes up 🤷🤣)
Look forward to chatting with you all, using a forum feels very 00’s again!
