Default Anybody here from the pacific NW?

I'm looking for a ride in an FI Miata, preferably turbo. The only one I've ever been in was a JRSC and it was underwhelming to say the least. Anybody know of anyone in WA/OR?

I know of 2 I could get you rides in. One makes a hair over 200 whp and the other is pushing damn near 275.

I'm in Portland, OR. Seattle isn't too far a drive, but I don't want to go too far away.

Tyler. Wideopen is in Renton WA. Curly is in Oregon City - local guy. He's running an upgraded greddy kit in a seriously lightened car. I'm not pressurized yet but should be by the end of the month.

I'm a portlander, although not FI yet. I met you at that S2ki drive last year.

If you can make it to Anacortes, I'm sure Bob Bundy would give you a ride in his GT3071 car. It's probably around 300whp.

It's well north of Seattle. If you can get together with Wideopen, he's likely to be able to get you access to a couple of quality cars and Renton is a little south of Seattle. Easy afternoons drive.

I wouldn't recommend 300rwhp unless you want to spoil every car you thought was "fast" before.

If you are ever as far up north as Olympia I will meet you somewhere down there. I work at Ft. Lewis so it's not much further than driving to work for me.
