Hey guys! I recently picked up a Miata and I have joined a few Miata forums so I will just copy my intro from one of them!
I am a FWD Honda kid coming into the Mazda world, I have previously owned a 91 Acura integra, and I currently own 3 Honda Accord CD chassis, two 94's and one 96. I have always been a honda kid at heart but for some reason I was always attracted to the NA Miata chassis. Ever since I had first seen them as a kid, I just knew there was some fun to be had in them and I never knew why, Until I managed to get my hands on one.
Browsing the local classified I spotted a 91 mazda Miata, Smurf Blue. The owner wanted $2200 and I booked a time to view the vehicle. I took the thing out for a drive and I came back grinning ear to ear, it was probably the most fun I had in any vehicle. I shot back and forth with the owner and managed to pick the thing up for $1700. It needed a bit of work which I promptly got onto
And boy RWD is so much easier to work on! So much room!
The clutch master and slave
Reverse switch(reverse lights where broken)
Front swaybar end links
And I also:
Re-duct taped the rear window on the roof (hehehe)
De-blacked out the ricey signals/sidemarkers
Gave her a nice ol wash and a wax
The car drove great until I blew out the 1.6L diff so I'm currently trying to source a new 1.8L diff or another 1.6 to hold me off for a while.
Here's a photo of me and my Toy the day I got her
I currently have my eyes on a Set of Pirelli P-slots for my wheels, here's a photo of them, although mine are coming with center caps!
Thanks for reading!
