Default The kid who bought my old S2000 smashed it this afternoon.







Are there any directly Miata-useful parts in it? I can't think of anything, really... Maybe the diff itself and halfshafts?


Anybody want an F20C that's had the crap kicked out of it?

AP1?
Motor and drivetrain still serviceable?
What are your plans with it?

We're possibly looking for a cheap AP1

If it is an AP1, they do tend to oversteer...

AP1. Motor and drivetrain appear to be unhurt. I don't own it, just used to own it. I'll ask the kid what his plans are when he gets off work tonight.

I don't know the story, but he hit something hard square on the nose. I imagine he REALLY overcooked a stop and rear ended somebody in the rain.

This car actually handled very neutrally. It had a Saner front sway bar and 400lb front/300lb rear springs.

He works at an O'Reilly, which is owned by Pep Boys, I think. Why?

Cool, thanks. If it's insured, please ask him to find out what the buy back is. This one might not go on the street again, but could still be used for science.
