Noob to the Miata (oh god another one)
I dont own the car yet.
But I have built a few different cars
About Five dodge trucks (Because they are dirt cheap and every part for twenty years fits each other, I mean EVERY part.
Toyota 22r NA on an ugly *** brown toyota with Dodge (uh yea) cop wheels, a built engine with borla exhaust and aluminum flywheel that would stomp slow imports with 20,000 in show parts and a coffee can dragging behind. That truck was cool.
Mazda MX6 with a V6 and a five speed.. Well I didnt really do much to that one, because its already rather fast, and I had to sell it because I was younger and got too many tickets. And I got tired of the probe jokes.
After that, I dropped cars altogether. I just drove them till they broke and got another one. I got tired of mechanics at home since I am also a 15+ year mechanic at work.
But now I want another project. I looked at old muscle cars (cant get a car for under 8000 that will actually move forward, and most of the time doesnt even have an engine). Newer muscle cars like a mustang (too ordinary, and I really dont want to do a V8 anyway). Trucks, I have had enough of those.
Then I started thinking about roadsters. I was looking at older stuff like austin martins and triumphs. Thats when I found what I wanted in a miata. I read the history of its concept and found that all along I should have gotten one. Its a car that is capable of amazing performance and able to still be practical on the street.
Hope to be around for awhile.
