Default sold my turbo miata

guys,,, i sold my turbo miata



however, i bought another one

my old turbo miata was a 92, red, rusted, it had a hole in the pass floor, the paint was chipping off, the motor had seen beter days. the rear end was on its way out, it didnt have ac, had a buncha miles,,it was a turbo bucket....



the new one is a 90,
has head rest speakers (which btw, is ******* amazing)
has ******* ice cold ac, i mean this thing ***** snow flakes
the paint is flawless, ( no lie)
the motor has less miles (and it was a single owner)
AND NO RUST!! (at all) (not even a little bit) <--cant stress enough


shitty pic of my new one

When I saw your thread I planned on saying it won't be long and you will have another Miata - you beat me to it!!!!!

In the blood, can't stay gone long, these cars are just too much fun.

i planned on selling the red one almost as soon as i turboed it,

i wanted to do it all again, only this time with a clean body and less miles.

i know now which kit i want, what to expect for power

Not to be a party pooper, but you did make sure it had a long-nose crank, right? Or are you swapping in a diff motor?

Now for the real question... Why is there a 1.8 sitting in your room? How does your girlfriend feel about sleeping next to a motor?

If the motor was properly maintained short nose crank syndrome should not be much of a problem.

Looks like a clean car, nice find!

Text from your eBay ad:
the bad about the car
exhaust leak when cold where downpipe joins rest of
line (leak goes away as soon as car warms up)
cosmetic dings here and there, but paint looks great
for its age
a rust spot the size of a dime has formed on the back
left pannel, can be fixed very cheaply but doesnt
bother me


So much for full disclosure eh?
