Hello from the UK
I'm Neil and I'm from the UK. I live near Birmingham, England and I have 2 Miata's (or MX5's as they're known here)
I've had a range of cars over the years but only got around to owning my first MX5 2 years ago. I bought a black Mk1 1993 S Special Eunos imported from Japan in 2008. It had a few nice additions like Gaz Gold coilovers, roll bar, harness eyes, braided brake lines, Team Dynamics Pro Race 1 wheels and a momo steering wheel so I guessed it's seen a track at some point . After a little research I learnt that the roll bar is from an M2 1001 - bonus!
I joined the MX5Nutz and phoenixfives.org forums/clubs in the UK and became more aware of "Flyin Miata's". After a few rides in turbo'd and supercharged cars at club meets I was determined to own one for myself. After months of searching and waiting for the right one to come along I spotted this

I bought it 12 months ago and it's my track weapon now! Absolutely love it so I've joined you guys to help me learn how to look after it, more than add power. It's plenty quick enough for our roads and I can outgun some expensive machinery on track!
