Default End of summer pshoot

Shot through 50mm 1.8 glass with a d5000 and a cpf on tripod. I wanted to do a shoot before I tear her down for more powah. Comments welcome!

I was ready to clown on you about that front bumper until I noticed the oil cooler. Not bad.

I like that front bumper.
Its actually one of the few for an NA I like.

Car sits too low though and needs something in the back, like a lip or a different bumper to complete the look.

Otherwise a good lookin na

*edit: a badass diffuser would also look **** back there

Badass diffuser is in the winter teardown program. Not sure where I will source it from yet.

Is it my imagination or are there side skirts on the car?

Looks good either way.

That's a great looking car! Really purposeful and agressive.I especially like the subtle sideskirts-blink and miss them.

They are racing beat rear flares on the back, there is nothing on the front other than mud guards. The rear flares catch a fuckton of rocks.

I also don't like the front bumper, I am working on a suitable alternative for her because I really don't like the stock bumper nor do I like lips. The wheels are 15x 8 unfortunately :(

Good stuff. For next time. Better Diversified scenery you must have. Feels like I've seen them all before.

I am open to ideas for more diversified scenery. Most places I would like to shoot are trespassing, I had a few people turn me away when I tried to get some shots there. Here is an example, I was doing this shoot and the foreman told me kindly to finish up and gtfo:

Nice photos, that lens is awesome for its price - I have it as well on my D300.

Yeah, I love that lens. I am far from pro so I have problems blowing big money on nice glass. Especially when I still need to get to 300whp.

Where would I have to go to upload pics to mt, the miata pictures tabbie on the top bar?

When you post or reply, there's a box below the text box with a button labeled "manage attachments", click that.

It helps a lot if you're browsing from a photobucket/flickr challenged network like I am. Uncle Sam blocks a lot of what's good about the internet.

I'm partial to the Bomex nose. So nice to see something other than the over-populated r-lip/GV lip.

Good looking car man, I like that the skirts are so minimal.

Thanks for uploading them.
