I have meet a couple of you already, but I would like have a formal greeting to everyone.
I have been a Miata owner since the late summer of 2005, when I bought my red '91. I made a few suspension upgrades (R-package bilstein and springs, RB sways with adjustable end links) I loved the car as a DD but as such, I couldn't spend more than a weekend tearing her down and putting her back together before I needed to use her again. So, I was looking for another car that I could have as a "spare". While one is being worked on...the other can be on the road.
Last month I came across this sweet deal in NJ. A 1991 BRG LE with 95,000 miles (and hardtop) for $1600.00. She had been sitting for a few years in the driveway and had paint issues. Apparently the previous owners wife hit a deer or two and when they repaired the body they used clear coat....well, the clear was flaking off now in spots. A spot of rocker rust, but other than that she runs good, borla exhaust. The shocks are shot and the springs are rusted through on both rears, so I am looking to get replacements. (Side note: Bought a replacement set of AGX from
...never got them, I was scammed) So the search goes on. I am getting a new set of calipers (big brakes in the front) and the valve cover powder coated this week, and I have to install the new brake booster, SS lines and new parking brake cables. I am replacing the a-arms with a fresh rust free, low mileage set with nice looking stock bushings.
Also, the deal came with a set of steel wheels, stock daisys, '95 BBS rims, 15x7 Panasport...for a total of $2300.00
