Default Changed the stable a bit...

So... I don't daily drive my turbo civic anymore... and a buddy put something up for sale that caught my eye. So... traded them up tonight... and something new is in the garage with the Miotta.
I'll let the pictures talk.





Needs lots of love for the wire harness and rust repair... was supposed to be not running... but it started and I must say.... 6cyl with a smallish turbo and generic 3" exhaust sounds GOOD.

Yah, I got the good end of the deal... once i fix rust/wiring... its worth more without a doubt.

Its the rb bastard child... rb20det. I will say this though... it sounds damn good for just a drive off trailer and into garage... and some revs for good measure

And yes, hatch.

A buddy of mine has a rb20det 240 and by no means is it slow. There still a pretty good engine to swap especially for the price

So the tow truck strapping allowed me to visualize a lower stance some.


And also made me hope I don't see this angle often.

Yah, I'm good in the snow. Plus the wife's car is fwd and capable, and I have a full set of snow tires that can run on the miata or her car.

Oh... and I walk to the train for my commute

Good trade....an actual sports car for an economy sedan. I've always liked the 240 series.
