Hi, NOOB in Northern Virginia, looking to buy a miata.
*UPDATE - I bought a 96 PEP with hardtop on Friday - for pictures scroll below
My name is Mike and I am here seeking knowledge for a turbo build. First I have to find a miata. But after seeing one, a built car for sale, I am on the fence about doing a build or buying turnkey.
I'll be 40 this year and this would be my third miata, once I find it. This will be my first "toy". I'm finally to the point where I can get a second car just for fun, start doing SCCA events and heading out to Summit Point for track day events.
My goal was to start out with a good base model. Since I have not been having much luck in Virginia I though I would buy from Meadow Lake Motors in Texas so I can get a rust free car. This would be followed up with my focus starting on suspension and chassis. After I learn more about motor builds then I would focus on that.
Right now I am trying to find the build-up threads so the "search" will be my best friend.
