Default Race car build on the cheap

Whats up guys

Story time

Sold my miata last year and been needing a new project but havnt had a huge budget for it. So long story short a friend of mine in our local car club flipped his miata.






SOME HOW he got out okay not sure how he pulled it off.

So after talking with him he said he would sell me the car at a "good price" i laughed and said i didn't need another project wish i could.... he said 300 bucks...... so i bought it


I have always wanted a gutted stripped all out racecar with no comforts at all. because you don't have to have alot of power if you don't have alot of weight





Because this is my inspiration......











and yes i'm pretty much planing on cutting and gutting like crazy


Thinking the car will be in a few phases

Phase 1. running and driving

Phase 2. gutted add windshield and some cutting on the remove A/C compressor and unneeded engine bits

Phase 3. Cut all of the rear off the car Depower the rack

Phase 4. Cage

Phase 5. cut front end up and so some light paneling

So if anyone is in blacksburg and wants to cut up a car let me know!!
