Default Anyone in San Jose area?

Hi everyone, my name is Evan Witty and I live in the california
bay area. A while ago I had the great plan of getting a miata and then putting a turbo kit on it, and getting a nice little street/track sleeper. That's when I found this site and I started to read up. I then lost interest pary because everyone I told my plan gave me **** about it, even though I think the "girl car" is part of the appeal when you can smoke anyone else. About a week ago, I got to drive a mini s, a similar car, and now I realize how co the miata will be. I was wondering If anyone in the bay area has a turbo miata they would be willing to drive me around in so I can get a first hand experience of the potential of these cars. Thanks a lot for all the great posts.

I cleaned up your post a little

Welcome. There are quite a few folks in the bay area that can give you a ride in a boosted miata.

I can see the bay from my house. Good thing there's only one bay in California, so that we can talk about it without having to specify which one.
