If you like a Z3 over a miata, you might just be too gay for the miata.

Honestly though, a well built miata is way cooler than any z3 in my book. I kind of like the coupes, but they are still so ugly in a way. z4 on the other hand I could see.

There is a certain threshold - once you pass it there is no more hope for you.

It's official, project Miata is dead. I just bought a new Porsche. Too many cars and this project wasn't getting anywhere.
Here's some stuff I got:
MSM Billstiens QA1 7k / 6k springs Allstar Sleeves $500 + stock suspension
recaro seats $500
RB Tubular Front Sway Bar, new $170
Wittyworks full turbo setup $2,000 see here: https://www.miataturbo.net/miata-par...rcooler-58114/
I will have to go see what all else I have.

Will sell complete package including everything I have for $4,250 (including the car itself). Try finding that deal anywhere else.

Default 1995 Mazda Miata

I picked her up in Canada for $750 from a guy who couldn't get it licensed there after he bought it in California.

The Good:
-It was $750!
-The car runs and drives good
-It made it home without breaking
-I wanted a 1994-1995 to start with
-Brand new Tokico Shocks/Struts and springs

The Bad: (where to start)
-Paint looks like dick (direct quote from a member here)
-Interior looks like a bum lived in it along with his pet rats
-Heavy cheap wheels
-No door panels
-Missing CD player plus bezel trim
-Missing instrument cluster trim
-Trunk is all kinds of jacked up and the battery is straight up mickey mouse special

First things first:
-Pull out the seats and clean for a few hours

Maintenance Round 1:
-Engine Temp. gauge does not work
-Driver's door is jammed up and does not open
-Flush radiator and change fluids
-Plugs, wires, filters

Make it acceptable to sit/drive in stage:
Interior:
Purchased already:
-Sparco Seats
-Radio Bezel
-Instrument cluster trim
-Steering wheel
-Shift Boot

Need to purchase:
-Door panels
-Instrument cluster trim
-Rear window repair "kit"


Build Stage 1:
Suspension

Already installed:
-Tokico Shocks/Struts
-Tokico Lowering springs
Need to Purchase:
-RacingBeat front sway bar (Should I get the adjustable end-links too?)
-Enkie RPF1's Mmmmm...

I will keep everyone updated as I go, she isn't much to look at now, but she sure is fun!


Looks ok from 30 feet



GONE SOON!


WTF!?!?


Again....WTF? New steering wheel: check


Bum who used to live in it: evicted. Sparco Seats: On their way!



Thanks for looking, I am very excited to tear into this little beast all summer.

I agree blloyd29! You have the reason to be proud of Miata became the rage whatever it is. I think your car still looks good and I also love the color
