My name is Mark Andrews and I am de-noobing myself finally. I purchased a red 92 Miata late August of this year from a guy named Joe Perez. I think he is on the forum here
Anyways about myself, I am a 30yr old married guy working as a web designer for Johnson & Johnson. My first car was an 88' Monte Carlo SS with a +400hp 383 stroker motor in it. My family has always been into cars, but I have mostly grown up around the muscle scene.
Come this past summer, my dad in his 08' Z06, uncle in his 65' VW VR6 Notchback and cousin in his 02' S4 all decided to start a summer track day weekend at Watkins Glen. With all the fun they had, I could not sit around and just watch... I had to get a car for next summer.
Which led me to the miata scene. I was looking for a budget racer that already had a nice build with suspension and light performance. Reading as much information as I could, I was sold on the miata. Though my family was making fun of me for wanting such a vehicle, I pushed ahead with trying to find the right car. And then I saw Joe's 92 Mazda Miata up for grabs on ebay. In the end, Joe let me buy such Miata off of him. Though there was a ton of craziness with the damn transport company Joe kept his cool and it all seemed to work out. *BTW don't ever use AUSA Logistics, not only shitty service but they double charged me and it took 3 months to get a refund of the fraudulent second check.
The car was immediately washed the next day due to the nasty travels from California to Michigan and tucked into the garage.
End novel.. signing books at the local closed Borders.
Next steps are to get it ready for next summer's track days. Rollbar, brakes and of course a nice set of wheels and tires for it. Being new to the miata scene and even turbo scene, I will be stalking the forums. Thank you for reading.
