Sold to me! Thanks Tripper - it was great to meet you. This car is amazing! I had a bit of trouble on the way home - the car started stumbling a bit in boost, and when I got home it dumped some fuel on the garage floor. No worries though - I'm sure I'll get it fixed and back on the road/track as soon as I get some free time to diagnose the issue.

Here are some pictures of the car in her new home:

Your brother said something on another forum that made me think you bought this. You lucky bastard! Are you getting rid of the '95 now?

Man, that would suck to spend $15k on a car and then have to diagnose a problem right when you get it home. Looks like a pretty darn good purchase though.

Hopefully you realize you didn't just buy a Corolla though. A fuel leak on a 400hp track ready miata? Oh shucks.

Sounds like a Hydra Issue. I had the same learning curve when I first installed mine. Stall car do not press gas, just crank. If you flood 90% throttle will clear the flood. Nice car Enjoy

Thanks guys - I've been droooooooling over this car since the first time I saw its build thread. I still can't believe it is sitting in my garage. Every time I go down there I'm like "Oh! ****!"

I've gone through a million different plans in my head, but I think I've settled on one that will work. I'm going to keep the '95 (making a few changes to it that will make it more suitable for driving around town - different seats, etc.), sell my black '99, and use the new '99 for track and an occasional autocross.

Apparently not...it's kind of ridiculous, and I held off on this car as long as I could, but I couldn't get it out of my head. It was a valiant battle, but after a few weeks of obsessing I had to do something.

Yeah...no sweat though. I'm just glad I made it home! And big thanks to Rotornut - he made the roadtrip with me to look at the car, then drove my Lexus back to Atlanta.

Believe me, as soon as I get this thing back on the road I'll overwhelm you guys with pictures and videos. I'm packing up the green '95 right now for a track event in Nashville this weekend and it is killing me not to be taking the new '99!

Nick may have a 3rd turbo Miata on his hands!


Then he will have one for track, one for AutoX and one for the street!

Thanks to everyone that helped get this listed. I will check regularly to answer questions. I am the owner. The car was purchased used in 2003 bone stock. I fell in love with it and it has always been one of my favorite cars of all times. My life has taken a different direction so this car is for sale. Originally I supercharged it for SCCA autocross events and added the necessary things to give it the capability of achieving fastest time of day which it did regularly in the XP classification. Not bragging but with the Evolution Driving schools plus countless autocrosses, I got pretty good. In May of 2007 I was introduced to HPDE events through NASA so the car was changed a good bit for better brakes and suspension and tires. In 2007, this car participated in at least 10 HPDE weekends with NASA, PCA Crown Region, Seat Time, and Chin Motorsports. Tracks it has visited include Roebling Road, Road Atlanta, Rockingham, Carolina Motorsports Park, and Barber Motorsports Park. Most of those events were run with a Jackson Racing M45 supercharger setup with TDR upgrades. It was also run quite a few times in HPDE events in 2008. In the summer of 2008 the motor was pulled and the turbo build was started. That not only involved machining and very expensive parts to the motor but the brakes, suspension, bracing, and a host of other modifications were made to accomodate the power and balance the build so that everything worked together as it should. Contrary to what Leeboat stated, the car has been run at Roebling Road in the fall of last year under it's present setup. That is the last time the car was on track. My son has been the primary driver of this car on track weekends. His creditials include being signed off to run in HPDE 4 for NASA events and he ran in the advanced groups with the other organizations that I previously listed. He gained his instructor status in this car a couple of years ago. The car has been off track one time and that was in the kink at CMP in 2007 while he was being instructed by a Spec Miata racer. No damage was done to the car other than the skid mark that appeared in his pants. The car is a missle and will easily pass ZO6 Corvettes down the straight at Roebling. I love this car but I over built it. Yes, it can be driven on the street but a full cage and a full halo race seat plus it's looks don't make it a very good street car. Plus it's too fast for the street. The A/C has been deleted due to the size of the radiator and the convertible top has been deleted due to the hard top being bolted on. The dash is intact but everything behind the seats has been deleted as have the interior side panels. The car will not pass emissions. The body is straight as an arrow and the paint is perfect. I know I have invested well over $30,000.00 in this car but I lost count a long time ago. The car is cleaned, serviced, and ready to go. It is in my garage in North Macon and I welcome all to come see it for themselves. To my knowledge, this car is a one of a kind. I am a perfectionist and I believe anyone who sees this car will appreciate the expense and lengths I have taken to make it the very best. I have more pictures should anyone want me to send to them. Simply PM me. I know I will never use this car again so it's sitting waiting on a new owner to enjoy it as much as I once did. I am negotiable to any reasonable offer. All I ask is please be fair when discussing the price. Thanks again for looking at this listing. I can promise that whoever buys this car, it will make them very happy.
