Where was my last name? I can only think of one place it would be and most wouldn't see it. Thanks for looking out though. Anyone can make a car look nice to their own standards but why spend all that money if you have a stock engine with nothing done. That's not why I'm here, if I was then I would have already done different mods to it. Glad someone else agrees!

Did a quick, single search Six. She's already got crazy amounts of info posted out there.

Yeah you don't want that info to be floating around on the web.

Even after the information was hidden a simple click on the picture still produces the name. Thus, other social media is exposed. The blonde hair and glasses were alright #justsaying. You may want to set those thing to private.

Back to the thread, what kind of use are you planning to give the car? Autox? or just street fun?

If you know how to search, just one word from the OP is sufficient to find all of her RL info. You don't even need the photos or anything else.

Check your PMs for info OP.

Wow that picture was from 7 years ago at least. I'll be using the car for street fun, wish I could say autox but I'd be lying. I don't have the time really to go to the track and get squirrelly, I'm sure I would have a blast but schedule can get crazy. I know I will be hated on for it but it is better than lying. Maybe I could go to a couple events but wouldn't make a fool out of myself on the track.

Who said I wasn't going to get a turbo? Already have one I am going to buy off of a friend most likely. No, I am not going not miata.net. Give me time to save money for what is needed! A car isn't built overnight, I'm not that good.

I've had the car for 3 months, I'm not the type to dump in a couple grand in 3 months to impress people. I have other priorities that come first like living. Suspension will be changed in the next two or three months. Just put on the rear winter wheels yesterday. Sorry my car isn't up to your standards for a stock car. I haven't tried anything besides getting caught up on maintenance.

The traitor comment actually refers to The Hustler. He got tired of always working on his turbo track car and went normally aspirated. It was a funny comment but not directed at you.

Emilio from 949 racing built an awesome normally aspirated track car called Crusher and inpired a bunch of us track junkeys. There's a good thread on it.

Keep going. I like it when a Miata is rescued from the hands of a PO that was harming it.

So, The car is named Rosca? Where did you get the name?

Only thing I found online was Rosca - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Trying to figure out the significance. Good job on the dash work btw.

I take back being offended then. I'll have to check that thread out later on today. The PO neglected the car so much and was just a **** ball who lied about a bunch of things that we asked before buying the car and he just kept feeding us lies when we knew the truth and aren't dumb when it comes to cars. He said there was rust that was properly fixed and we laughed when we looked at it. Then continued to ask what "proper" fix was done. It will take time but I will have it fixed over time. No rush for me!

Wikipedia is by no means close to my meaning. I was listening to a song and the name stuck with me, I didn't look the meaning up or anything. Liked the name so it is what it is, miss rosca. The dash was basically the first thing to be fixed I couldn't stand looking at it anymore and didn't want to be cut or someone else to be cut by sharp metal.

If it is front fenders that are rusted, there are reproductions on rockauto for $97 apiece. And the rears for $57 but they require a bit more work to replace. Rockauto.com is pretty cheap on most maintenance parts as well.

The cheap front fenders are probably the thick heave steel though.

Yeah I know... I have no shame and was bored.

There are many users whose cars are for street fun only. I'm one of those haha Taking it to the track requires much much more funds and maintenance. I hope you make some progress soon. Good luck .

Thank you, I might just take her to someone and ask for a quote on the rust repair, if it is way too expensive then I will look for an alternative or just suck it up and save money until I have enough to pay for someone professional. More maintenance being done when it isn't 10 degrees outside! Wheel bearings, driveshaft, half shafts, diff. housing, torsen 4.10 diff., have to put the front winter wheels on after I order a new tire for the one, so much to do.

I'll most likely have the car street fun because I will never afford track unless I sell all my other cars and won't do that. Need a family car and let's not talk about the other car haha she just sits in the garage because every time she is out, we get pulled over or something breaks (axle, oil pan due to sucky roads in NY, or a bag blows because they are getting old).
