What did you make your car for?

A Miata is the wrong car to choose for wanting to go fast in a straight line only, or showing off to friends. Get a Mustang for that.

A Miata is too small? Are you both 300 lbs or what? I don't get that.

A Miata is not a family car. It'll never have four seats. Get an EVO.

Really though. If your car rides too harsh, change the suspension. If the interior isn't nice enough, spruce it up. If it's too loud, dynamat it. If it's not fast enough, put a V8 in it. All your options are right there, I don't see any point for you to start this thread except to feel better about selling your car.

If your primary purpose is driving with other people, showing off to other people, and carrying other people, you bought the wrong car. The Miata is about the driver.
dude I don't even know what your saying.
I got bored with the car, I didnt build a car i didnt like. if your read all the other post you will see that i was in love with my car but now its just sits in the garage.
BTW I HATE american cars.

I feel like i need more power but Im already burning first and second gear, so more power would just make me burn up another gear. I'm not going to seel it untill the spring and summer comes and if I'm still bored with it then I will sell it.
Another part of me thinks that i don't enjoy the car due to the Hustler deciease. Lately I've been affraid of enjoying it thinking it's going to blow up in the middle of the street

Drive it hard and if it blows up you will have something to do with your car.

Oh, right. You didn't build a car you don't like. Because you like the car that you built... no. You don't. Dur.

All the other post only works if you're British and talking about mail.

Hate American cars? WTF. That's just stupid. They're things. Next you'll tell me you hate rocks.

Like he said, good tires. Not those. Looks like you have flares, so put on some 245 width sticky tires.

In summation: You made a car you don't use, you hate inanimate objects, you have flares for low offset rims, you can't spell and you cry about horsepower.

I tend to get bored with cars myself. Probably because I like cars so much, and, I like a lot of different cars. My last major project was a 88 Mustang. I went all out over the course of several years. A built 351, turbo, suspension, brakes, entire new powertrain, fuels system, aftermarket engine managment. I had over 20K in the thing. Then I lost interest and sold it for a lot less than I had in it.

You need a CTS-V for the family thats my plan. I just decided I need a track car= miata, a good street car= camaro, a good family car = CTS-V, and my truck, perfect. I hope for the V soon but the economy sucks right now.

I haven't enjoyed mine since about... two years ago. I might get some enjoyment from it when I decide to drop an LS1 into it, but until then it's just a boring, slow and uncomfortable daily driver. No longer enjoy cruising like I used to do.

I get bored too. I think I enjoy the quest of a new build more than having a finished product.


I really like driving the miatas, and they R a blast to burn curves and donuts.

But I got a bug for AMERICAN MUSCLE! Straight brute force power. And they always get attention. They demand respect. And it also pissed my girl off when I bought it.So I have a miata and soon turbo'ed Z28!

I'm not bored with my MX-5 but I do want another fun car I can take the family in. We have a 2001 Protege with 1600 engine, not very inspiring to drive. I wouldn't say no to a manual Lexus IS200 with the Toyota designed TTE supercharger kit. I don't think you guys get them in the states?
