Default 2 red turbo miatas + no camera skillz [No 56k]

I managed to meet up with Koto before he departed TX and we took some photos. It's a point and shoot camera and we both admit to having no camera skill.











































The day ended with my heater core pipes finally giving out and spraying coolant all over my foot/gas pedal. Meh.

Word man, thanks for posting the thread. I'm out the door and gone as soon as the mail arrives with (hopefully) my contacts. Been packing the Miata to the brim all morning... pics to come.

I wish Texas wasn't so damn big. A MiataTurbo Meat up somewhere in the middle of Texas would be pretty sweet.

Nah not really. Mostly just cruised. I was worried about my coolant leak the whole time.

Large scratch from a shitty engine hoist and my oil pan kissing the bumper. Or might have been trans... can't remember. So just put that on there to keep it from peeling worse. One day I'll fix it..

FRT's car would have made me look silly had we raced, he has a bigger engine and better hardware.

I made it to Jacksonville in 19 hours flat (left at 1:04PM central time and arrived 9:00AM eastern time). Almost as I got to Jacksonville I had zero boost and thought maybe I'd blown the turbo. Nope, just snapped the WG bracket. I guess my design wasn't so good after all.

Plus, like, check out how many trophies I snagged on the road.
