MR2 3rd Gen 2002 Thoughts and Advice

Hi All,
I don't own a MR2 but am going to be looking at one soon and test driving perhaps even purchasing. It's a 2002 model with the manual transmission which doesn't have a clutch (very strange) I have never driven a car with this transmission so have no idea what to expect or if I will even like it.
Can other members who have a similar car let me know what their experiences are using this system? 
The car I'm looking at is listed on Carsales in Hobart very low kms, one owner asking $22000. is this a reasonable price if it really is in excellent condition? If not what would be a fair price?
Looking forward to your help and advice.

    It's an automatic, it can just be sequentially shifted.

    If you've ever played an arcade racing game you'll know how it works

    You should definitely test drive a local MR2 before you commit, the gearbox is an acquired taste.  It's not a conventional auto in that it has no torque converter and cannot shift gears automatically (the driver must always tell the gearbox when to change gears).  I find it slow and clumsy so I'm not a fan but there are some people who really like it.
