Well here it is, my 'better late than never' intro thread. My first car was a 2001 Honda Civic. Hind sight is 20/20 and I really wish I had never bought that slow econobox, but so goes life. Here it is a while back with my wife's recently purchased 91 NA peaking through in the background. I had the civic turboed, full suspension etc. etc. and that slow 1.6 miata was 10x more fun to drive. So began my migration down the hallowed path of mazda.
I parted out the turbo kit, sold the car and bought a cheap b16 del sol as a daily driver that's a little more fun to drive than the civic and began my search for a project mx-5.
On foothills parkway up near the dragon.
I happened across a poor soul who could no longer afford his own project miata and relieved him of it. It's a 94 M edition that I bought for $800. It was sadly abused with body damage and a 'rod knocking' motor. The original plan was to swap all the goodies to the wife's NA, but that changed and another miata chassis is being saved. Here it is shortly after I started working on it. The original pictures died along with a camera that had an unfortunate incident with a toilette.

After some work with a wire wheel and a fixed rusty rocker.
The build is well under way and hopefully will be running again in the next week. Lots of goodies and a turbo in the future, but all that will go in the build thread that will also be up in a 'better late than never' fashion.
I'm not a total noob to the turbo game, I know how to read stickies, my grammar is hopefully passable.... now I guess we'll see how thick my flame suit needs to be.
