Default Just bought this... Don't hate me...

I just won this...

Mazda : MX-5 Miata:eBay Motors (item 180399667881 end time Aug-29-09 19:29:05 PDT)

When figuring in what my time is worth, no way I could build one for that much.

Now I have to explain it to my wife...

congrats. I don't think I could build one for that price either. Good luck with it all.

LS1>all...

I'm thinking I am going to strip it to the bone, get a hard top, get some big r-comps, upgrade the brakes, add some aero, and run it on the track. Keep it street legal so I can drive it to work on occasion and scare my coworkers on lunch rides. No a/c, no PS, no dash, no stereo, race buckets, 6-points, full cage maybe...

When I get bored with it, I'll add a turbo.

Current car = street duty
LS1 car = track bitch

Interior part out coming soon

You should keep the seat covers.

Yeah, honestly, that is the only reason I bought it. The seat covers are awesome
What the hell is an LS1 anyway? Some kind of K&N filter?

I ******* HATE YOU! DIE YOU V8 LOVING ------!









You really do ******* suck, but that is really really bad ***! That is a good price. If I could swing $12k, I would totally have one. I would never have the time or be able to put in the effort to build one myself though. I'm lazy like that.

Yeah, already thinking I will take it to H2R. The suspension might be a crap setup (compared to my Teins) but at least I could put the 6UL/NT01s on it.

If the Safety ***** at H2R will let me give rides, I will be happy to. Normally they only allow two in the car if one of them is an instructor. H2R is a cornering track so I might get my *** handed to me by someone with a good suspension setup, at least until I get it set up correctly.

Hey, not that my Johnson is of short stature, but you could be on to something. It is better than Viagara. The car is blue after all, so it is not the 'little blue pill' but THE BIG BLUE PILL! Just think honey, I'll split you open like a **** star after I drive this car.

V8 ribbed, for her pleasure. Just look at that LS1 intake and tell me that does not scream French Tickler.

Outstanding purchase. Couldn't buy a car, drivetrain, swap kit for less than twice the money. Good job sir.

Based on my research I do believe you are correct, which is why I bought it. I have to have something that is stupid fast in order to scratch the same itch that motorcycle road racing scratches.

Kinda weird really. Must be the economy; no jobs, and the toys have to go. Two V8 Miatas had their auctions end today. This one, and a 5.0 liter conversion. Not sure what the reserve was on the latter, but the last bid was $9100 (under reserve).
Mazda : MX-5 Miata:eBay Motors (item 140341363916 end time Aug-29-09 14:44:17 PDT)

LS1>5.0 (all else being equal) so I think the latter needs to lower his price. I also thought the Viper gas cap on the 5.0 was kind of that would be the first thing I would part out, unless I endurance raced it or something.

I'll bet I have spent close to that honestly. Unless my wife threatens to leave me in earnest, I plan to keep them both
