Hello to all Miata freaks!
I'm a 25 year old graphic designer with a newly bought white 1990 Miata. I was in need of a car and searching around, when my girlfriend's mom told me she was selling her Miata. Never really got into cars, but driving this car around for a couple days sparked my interest to say the least. Then I started reading like mad and seeing all the cool things people have done to these cars, now im hooked!
Things done to the car so far:
-new ball joints
-timing belt (and everything that usually goes along with one)
-NGK plugs and wires
-pads and rotors
-Konig wheels with Kumho ast tires
-new thermostat (broke head off a seized bolt on the thermostat housing pipe neck, decided
to completely replace it so I basically learned how to do a timing belt.
*things to do in no particular order*
-upgrade diff (need to read up on this more)
-replace all bushings
My goal for the car is too expand on what the Miata already does best and focus on handling. Eventually adding some speed while still keeping it as a DD. 180-200whp sounds good for how little the car weighs I think. Im having fun learning and taking my time as money and experience is limited. Looks like the Miata has a good community behind it, which makes it even more exciting to work on this fun little car.
(sorry for the filtered looking pic. Just bought a new fancy camera and
i'm a noob at that as well..)
-Thanks for reading!
