All the time I've been here and the great things I have brought to the miata community and I only have two friends....It makes it hard for me to sleep at night.

I invision this is what it is like for Hustler.

I guess it's good I am self-sustained....haha.

More pics will come later guys. You don't have to harass me about it.

You guys won't get good engine bay shots until I make the first video of the car...which will have track runs in it.

Hoping to have that ready by the end of April, but could be as late as the end of May. All this fabricating takes a good bit of time.

Wow. That's all I can find to say. Words escape me and I cannot wait to see pictures of the engine, or the rest of the car for that matter. You're my hero. lol

Mike....I'd love to see an update on this.

Robert told me a little about it, but I have to see video...and just how far overboard you went building this.

I heard your goals were...um...high to say the least.

Time for an update. The Miata has been sitting. He's been busy with a new Busa and a fully built turbo Vette.

He sold the Miata. Luckily it was to someone local. Hopefully they'll come around here or another Miata forum and get the build finished. I've defriended Mike and ceased all contact with him for selling it.
