Default FNG! $500 1995 Miata

Hey guys new here, but not new to the scene in general. Picked myself up a 1995 Miata 5spd for $500 it "has" 220k runs like a champ is 5spd has great, heat, pwr windows, cruise control. The bad(s) are that the roof is pretty shot, and has some rust in front of the wheels on the rear quarters, and the rear calipers are trash and the paints clearcoat has seen better day but would prob clean up.. I just ordered an ebay top for like 175 shipped. I have a pair of sportmax 002's 0 offset i was running on my one vw and i will prob put them on this. I am about to order reman'd rear calipers and cross drilled slotted rotors and ebc pads here in about a week. My plans throughout the winter is to put it on about 10-12lbs with a good tune, replace some gaskets, fluids, a radiator and a clutch. Some raceland coilovers, sway bars and end links as well as fender flairs, mild side skirts (cover the rust) and front and rear lip. Let me know what you guys think.

あなたの母親は私の骨盤の聖騎士の神聖な白い流れによって時もっと祝福されたかもしれません、しかしそれは 私にしっとの緑の目、無頓着な私が雄鳥 - 愛することを与える理由ではありません。我々の間に、今晩は宗教的な無上の喜びでしょう、なぜならあなたの 肛門の裂け目は私の大きい海であるべきです、そしてiは、私の睾丸の種族の安全通行のために道をあけるため にその壮大なチョコレート海を裂いて、錠がかかっている前立腺の後ろに奴隷化の圧制的な権力行 使からの 自由を与えられて、その であるべきですから。

Understand that, gaijin?

He says, "let me know what you guys think". I think this dude will end up posting in the classifieds once his post count gets high enough, then he'll get banned. Who agrees with my prediction?

Your mother may have been more blessed at the sacred white flowing Holy Knight of my pelvis, but it green eyes of jealousy to me, my **** negligent - there is no reason to give you love. Between us, tonight will be a religious bliss, because your ---- cleft should be my big sea, and i is a way for the safe conduct of the tribe of my ********* We split a chocolate sea to make way for the spectacular, given the power of practicing freedom from oppressive enslavement behind the locked, prostate, should be from them.

Hey man, welcome. I know a lot of the people posting in this thread may appear mean, but they're just trying to help you in a roundabout-sorta way. I am not here to help you in any way but that doesn't mean I'm going to leave you with nothing. So, here it is:



Get used to it.

hmm...dont really know what to say, definitely not here to BS or sell the car. I just kinda thought i would get a better welcoming? And btw, they are 16x9 and fit quite nicely last night. And yes im NOT fixing rust. Why because the car is a beater something to have fun with rust or not its going to serve a purpose. and its purpose for me is to be quick and handle well. Im trying to put less than 3k into this thing so I can have a little fun. I found you have alot of useful threads and I plan on following most of it pretty thoroughly. Sorry if my ideas and opinions aren't "ideal" to you or what you think is cool or respectable when putting a car together but i take pride in doing things "my" way but at least im not jumping on a bandwagon here. Ive owned many cool n/a and f/i'd cars and it wasnt all one make. Nissans, Toyota's, Chevy's, Ford's, VW's, and even a honda once. Just stay tuned, I might do something that will gain your acceptance as if i need it.
To all else, thanks for the welcome..
-Kevin

Who was that? lol

We're just giving you a hard time for a couple different reasons. If you're serious about learning something just hang around, join in on some threads, contribute what you can, learn what you can, and in due time you'll either be accepted or eventually deleted.

Most intro threads that are of your nature get ragged on (one big run on paragraph, no pictures, mentioning racelands, sportmaxxes, etc). Post up some pictures and even some of your past cars, and you'll get more of a welcome from the gang.

I agree with the above. Don't think you are special because your intro thread was you being ragged on. It happened to about 98% of us on here. It's how we weed out the idiots and trolls.

Feel free to prove us wrong on all of our allegations.

BTW there is no bandwagon here. That is for crnet faggGets who follow fads and ****. Most of the stuff going on here is unique. A lot of the well known people on here have helped the miata progress quite a bit by trying out new stuff so us little people don't have to.

The raceland comment warranted the lack of astroglide... you got it dry man.
If you want to "pimp-out" your $500 miata, may I suggest clubroadster (CR for future reference) for some 'awesome' input - and they always use KY. And I won't post a link either.

But welcome to the ***-pounding anyway

I bet you put the cheapest 195 tires you could find on it, I bet your pads are green stuff, I bet your VW sucked too.

GO AWAY
