Default Colorado Noob Intro

Hi guys. Long time lurker (since May 2013), first time poster. That said, it seemed like it was about time to finally post an intro thread and potentially even use my account here... I've had a few Miatas (eight total) and currently own four:
  1. 1990 Base Model (red), 150k on the body. This one will be getting a turbo when I've done some additional research and decided what route I want to go, and is a continuation of a project I've had going on for a few years now. For now, 78k mile 1.8 and Torsen swap with exhintake mod, full exhaust, megasquirt tuned on speed density, interior swap, suspension, etc.
  2. 1991 B Package (white) with ABS and 103k on the clock (LNC engine). Bought this one because it was a stupid deal, was planning on building it for autocross but at this point am just thinking of getting rid of it.
  3. 1999 Popular Equipment Package (red, repainted lava orange). Not sure what the mileage is, haven't even checked. I'll probably work on this one this winter, need to swap the bottom end out because it's seized up. Bought it because it was a pretty good deal, and it's supercharged (hot side) with an M62. Plus, who doesn't like Lava Orange?
  4. 1994 M Edition (black), right at 200k miles. Yes, I realize the 94M isn't supposed to be black, and this one was poorly repainted by some bro at some point. Everything was blacked out, other than the valve cover and thermostat housing, which were bright green. Asked the guy I bought it from where the Monster sticker was, and he pointed out where the guy he bought it from had put it.... fail. This one was too good a deal to pass up, and I've only really had to clean stuff up on it. Paint job is pretty shitty, but I can't say I'm surprised or that I really care.
Anyhow, just updated my about me to reflect my new location, moved to Colorado last November for a new job and thought I'd come say hi. Would love to see some set ups in person, as the only (non-MSM) turbo Miata I've seen out here so far has been this one: Junkyard-turbo Miata under $300 goes for a test run - YouTube

And since an intro isn't complete without at least one pic, here's the current state of affairs in my driveway, not to mention my motorcycle or Land Cruiser or the girlfriend's Jeep... I'm sure my neighbors love me.
