Default Efini disappoints again: Tubro NB Ghettocet or Supah Cheap TTE Build

So...

I bought a thing:







What's that you say? Another crappy miata?


You bet:









Sorry for crappy potato pics, my iPhone sucks so hard in my garage, but it's just too much work to grab a proper camera.


Here's the CL ad for the car:













Initial plan was to buy said POS, sell off all the good body panels, and build a Ghettocet. Now I'm having second thoughts because the car is actually pretty clean, minus the botched interior shenanigans, awful exhaust fab work, and generally poor paint. That said...it would be pretty easy to build this into a super cheap TTE car. Really it just needs a roll bar, hard top, MS2, and a DIY bilstein setup and I could be having fun screwing around in TTE.


Decisions, decisions, decisions.


More proper content to come....sometime.

BUT...it's damn tempting.
