It was basically the nicest, cleanest NB I've ever been in that had a good tune. I say that because most of us hobbyist tuners have ****-heaps.

I could have changed the coolant more often.

Anyway, all it takes to build a car is patience, cash, and tools. It's not rocket science unless you're building a rocket car.

I'm surprised you never got yours to the elite level with all you've put into it.

the only advantage I had with this car is I knew its entire history from day one.

I have had my 95 since it was new. I could not imagine getting rid of it.

y8s, do you think you will get another one? Perhaps current gen or next gen?

you want a reason?

here's some:

I felt cramped in it
I couldn't drive my kid around in it
The weather here is not black-miata-friendly (too hot or too cold)
It was too easy to want to get into big trouble on public roads

Sure it's a fun car and fast like whoa, but really I've reached a part of my life where having a highly modified impractical car is less fun than not having to worry about it. It had become a liability so off it went.

Sad.

But don't worry. Kids grow up and then you reach the part of your life where having a highly-modified, impractical car is fun again.

It's fun being the "cool" grandpa.

That's the #1 reason I didn't put the turbo stuff in my daily. I would be in jail.

If we have any sort of an economy in 18-years, buy a racecar. I'll still be racing Miatas then.

People give me a lot of **** over my old, ugly daily. Even though I make great cash, reality is that it cost me about $47/month to insure, tires are $240/set, oil change is $23, and I get over 35mpg. I save a mega-ton of money by not owning "something respectable".

And sucks even harder when people post completely not funny, or entertaining, or even interesting pictures JUST to make a post.

So I guess it sucks either way.

I aint even mad tho. Plenty of other threads to browse.

So I'm curious: what next? is the pooper scooper yours or the wifes? in which case, are you REALLY considering getting a super old pos beater like you're hinting in the other thread?

There came a point in my life where that was a big issue with me as well. That is one of the reasons I have converted my car to pretty much a track car, with maybe an occasional trip to the local street scene. I have my doubts that I will have a really fast daily driver ever.

It is nice to go to a place where you can go wide open without fear of retribution.
