Hello, I am 30 year old from Arkansas, who is active duty Air Force C-130 engine mechanic, who gets to come home from Iraq in 2 weeks.
I have been Married for 2 years, no kids, 1 dog, and 3 cats.
The car that got me into cars was 96 Miata, that I totaled in a ice storm in around 2000, (who knew summer tires didn't like ice) with FMII kit on order. This was back when FM was supplied by BEGI and Corky took 3+ months to ship a kit... Well in my case after many excuses 6 months. The kit came in right after I totaled out the car. I did quick local search and picked up 97 to put my pile of parts in.
I loved this car and for whatever reason decided to tear it down and go bigger and badder, though I got orders to Iceland at the time and lost interest in the car and never put it back together.
I messed around with RX-7s, RX-8, and Evos since then. Just last year I traded my RX-8 in on a Evo X. Which was a huge mistake, I find the Evo X a very boring car in hind sight and really miss the much slower RX-8.
But the car I miss more than anything is my 97, So I bought a 94 Miata that is semi local to me sight unseen while I am over here in Iraq. Its 94 Red PEP, nearly stock except for few mild suspension mods and HDHC roll bar. My goal with this car is a full build up, that will be near 100% fabricated by me, shooting for the low mid 300s, and just to have fun with the car. I will keep extensive build log with this car as it goes along.
This does seem to be much better community that what we had 7-8 years ago and I am looking forward to trying contribute here. Just need to sell my Evo X before I can go stupid with mods on the car.
