A couple months ago, I was hunting here (and everywhere) for a 94-97 Miata. Here's why: linky poo

And yeah, it really did smell putrid.

Is that a direct reference to a "girl's car" or what?!

I hope not. Then it will not be a good autox car because the supercharger will weigh it down. The balance will be ruined. They should put in a wood steering wheel and a lugage rack. if they really want o get aggresive, some 17 inch wheels will be awesome.

I hope not. The wood steering wheel gets slippery when its hot, especially when they autocross in a humid climate. The luggage rack will destroy the perfect 50/50 balance of the miata and add too much weight in the rear. 17" wheels will also weigh too much for an autox miata, so stock 14" or smaller wheels with ultra high performance all season tires should be used.

You lie! The Nardi steering wheel is one of the most powerful mods you can do! And the luggage rack allows for more than one set of golf clubs! The 17 wheels not only look good, they make the car faster because they are larger. Just look at a Top Fuel dragsters! Their wheel/tire setups are huge!

Looks to be the makings of an interesting test. Can't wait to see where it goes from here.

Dont worry. The people who will get introduced via Edmunds will get one car, do something stupid, and sell it for 2-3 grand. This will make NBs a bit easier to come by.

Evo did a long term with a NA too.
