There is a late 90's or 2000's model that I pass by regularly that appears to be at a place that no-one lives in, it has no plate, and has not moved for a long time.
Thought about investigating it more as a potential buy.
Anything problematic with these?

There really isn't anything you need to be overly concerned about other than it being a very old vehicle that has sat not running for an unknown amount of time.

This.  

I see them in racing a lot.   They tend to do well in the autocross circuit.   I prefer the late model MR2 to a similar Miata.   Much more interior space in the MR2.  Frequently have cooling issues in racing forcing some drivers to build obnoxious looking air ducts to keep engine temps down.

like said above pretty bullet proof drivetrain, I have owned multiple MR2's (all 2nd gen's) and they are very fun cars, burping the coolant is a PITA sometimes that will cause over heating issues if not done properly.
