I know that I passed a super-clean, first-gen Toyota MR2 this morning. But as he went by, I noticed two things: T-tops and some little script on the rub strip.

Supercharged MR2? If so, it was totally clean. Stock wheels, even.

A lot of them have T Tops. Not sure if there was a "Supercharged" notation on the rub strip. There's a pretty nice one in my neighborhood and the only marking I've noticed is on the rear.

In reply to JG Pasterjak:

Sorry, what I meant was a lot of MR2s - supercharged or not - had T Tops. So that's not really an identifying feature of the supercharged cars.

Yeah, T-tops were common from 87 on (I had an 87 with T-tops, not supercharged). I can't remember if it had any "supercharged" print on the side. I know the trunk lid had it. The trunk lid itself had a distinctive design for better airflow.
