Thought I would introduce myself, I'm Jake and from chicago, was looking into miatas a couple of years ago but got caught up with other cars. Since I joined this site back in 2010 I've gone through a couple 240s, a sti swapped bugeye and an evo but never was able to get attached to them like I was with my P11. A couple weeks ago I contacted Pat about his NB and ended up having it shipped to chicago. I don't plan on keeping much of his current setup but only time can tell. Anyways once I get my motor back from the machine shop I'll make a build thread but in the mean time here are some pictures of the past hoopties.
First car - 99 G20
This was where it all started, did a built DET swap with a gt2860rs.
While I really loved the G20, this was the state that it was in most of the time, torn apart in the garage:
240 No. 1:
240 No. 2&3 and the subaru:
We don't talk about these cars, lesson learned here, don't buy modded subarus or old nissans.
Evo rocking some 285/30/18s and KWs:
Day I sold the evo to some 18 year old kid:
Sad to say I do miss my evo and never got any really good shots of it, I was always paranoid that it was going to get stolen so I sold it, maybe one day I'll get another.
Plans for the miata is just to make a fun street car, going with a ARTech top mount with a GT2860RS, upgrade to MS3x and add a dash of Tial. We shall see how it all comes out.
