...So if you ever wonder why I am such an ******* to the n00bs on here or CR. ********, even on my local forum, I don't talk to n00bs much because of this trend of getting a cheap Miata and thinking it'll be some revelation to their car driving experience or something when in fact it takes just as much time/money as any other car to improve upon. Most end up bitch, complainging and reverting to "I'll just go back to Hondas" because they're scared shitless to learn something new. I say drive these kinda people out as they're useless anyway.

Its the voodoo II kit but its not for sale. I'm holding on to it for my next miata. i don't have a problem with committing to a project i just had a few problems that arose.

My dad had a heart attack and needed bypass and his pos insurance didn't cover allot of it. my whole family is throwing together a bunch of cash to help balance out of the bills that's why the miatas gotta go. ill get another one i just gotta scavenge some cash


To make sure you guys don't think i'm lying this is him in ICU

That sucks. It is a pretty damn good reason to sell the car.

Did they do a coolant re-route and a new clutch while they were in there? Best time to do it really.

If you look in that picture you can tell he is just hoping a hot nurse is going to lean over and check his vital signs......

Kidding man. Seriously, post OP care for that is so well figured out by now that he will be fine.

Wow. My uncle had a transplant done, and aside from some hicups getting th anti-rejection drugs dialed in its went really well. They are so damned good at this stuff anymore its pretty amazing. Which is a huge comfort when your dad is plugged into all that stuff.

Does hospital food still suck?

It's just a car, you can get another one when the family stuff is sorted. I have trouble holding onto cars too, here they are fscking expensive to buy and own. Not really essential unless you are 'into' cars anyway.

All the best with op and recovery.
