You need to talk to my (4 miles away) neighbor.



That's 6 in the first shot, 1 in the 2nd. The red car in the 2nd shot is a beautiful red NB. Need to stop and chat with him sometime.

Why the hell have you not? That guy has some sweet rotaries and I'm sure he'd love to check out your miata(s).

To be honest, that guys house actually looks extremely inviting compared to most peoples yards around here

Cause we're generally celebrating getting one of our heaps running again, whizzing by his house sideways at 60. Who'd want to stop that to look at some broken rotories?

In for bending over, snapping, walking strangely, and chanting "Miata, Miata, Miata" under our breath. ie: jets vs. sharks.

One owner so I'm the second now. All oem. Down pipe is the only thing aftermarket on the car to reduce heat temps and the cd player. Came with all records of the car since the day it was bought.

Had all maintenance done and rebuilt motor with new housings etc. One year ago with 2k miles on it. Chassis has 125k. I plan on replacing all bushings endlinks and shocks in the next couple months if not sooner. The compression numbers came back amazing and just did an oil change today at the dealership.

Seriously, it's perfect. MAYBE some wheels/tires, and quality suspension/boltons eventually, but NO FLARES.

I won't stance it but I will be putting on coil overs like flex again. I will autocross it to get the bug out of me but that's down the road a ways. My goal right now is to get it reliable which it is but with advice to create longevity for the vehicle and motor. After that, restore the interior and paint.
