I bought a Lexus GX470 for overlanding last year. I wanted one that had "patina" and boy does it have it: Big scratches on the side, paint fade, and some actual patina on one door. It has no rust but one back fender around to the door has lots of bondo (magnets don't hold for quite a bit). I love it. There is something truly freeing about driving a car you don't car to get nicked. I have been looking at newer sports cars but maybe I should come back and get a junky MR2? There is a youtube series on lifting and offroading an mr2. Might be interesting.

Love this thread.

Pictures don’t do justice to my paint. Chips and dents everywhere. No clear coat. It feels like a chalk board. The bumpers are bent with cracks all over.

gotta see it in person tho.
The lack of clear coat is a good thing (to some extent). These cars have one stage paint and it can be buffed to a beautiful shine anytime. It is actually quite remarkable.

Now as for the dents and chips...
