Default Have not been on here a while...heres why!!

Have not been on here for 2 and half months and was a regular poster.

Well the reason is my dream of owning the best modded MX5 in the uk has now ended.

Basicly the car is no more!

Sadly and to my horror and disbelief my beloved MX5 Turbo was set a light by JEAULOUS low life scum on 2nd September 2007.

As usual the police have been very helpful in this matter.....NOT!!!

I have pictures but am not going to post them.

Its been very hard to deal with and accept as you can imagine.

Fortunately, the damage was not extensve but enough for it to be a total loss.

As a result the car has been stripped and broken for what could be salvaged.

I would just like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who helped me as this forum is probably the best miata turbo forum online.

I wish you all the best of luck with your projects.

I leave you with some pics of my pride and joy that I dearly miss that were taken 2 weeks before the incident.

That really blows, tabs. Very unfortunate.

Any word on what your next project will be?

I'm glad I'm not in the UK car scene...I'd be afraid to whip some *** on the street and not get shot!

thanks for yor kind words.

There will be no other project for now. I have jsut got somthing 'sensible' for now. I have decided to invest in property instead in which you can get a return on investment. Although I am gunning for a supra TT or a skyline GTR.

Although I lovd that car to bits it was sadly taking over my life and my life was revolving around it.

The car was not burnt to the ground, the ******* set light to the petrol filler cap. I was able to salvage allot of stuff and made a tidy sum. All I have left is the exhaust....as its like marmite!!

Or a foot or a fist, maybe a random forehead. Preferably something large and moderately moving.
