Default 99 miata: My day at gashead motorworks

After the last autoX I noticed a lot of oil under the car and on the back of my tire trailer. I was not sure if it was leaking from the cam seals, or the crank seal, so I went by my favorite place today. Clint and Kevin fixed my car right up. When I cant do something or don't have time (it would take me the whole day to change these seals) Gashead's the way to go.

Here is my morning at the shop

So many trailers. So many wheels. So few lifts.

That's cool and all, but do they do any work on Miatas?

why. They do it much better and faster than most places anyway.

They even have people come to them to clean up the mess that other Spec miata places have built for customers.

I've got more lifts in my garage than they do. They got me beat on space though.

I figured it was a new space and they just hadn't gotten the stuff set up.
