Ok I know right where that is ... hopefully it's easier to get into that parking lot than it is at Buffalo Wild Wings lol. I'll try to make it up there sometime!

In case you haven't figured it out yet I'm the other Kyle that has a white Miata. You have no idea how many people say, "Hey I saw a car like yours with chrome rims!"
Hey man, I met you awhile back at one of the University Pkwy meets I think. I thought you had bronze wheels? IIRC you were running a turbo setup on the original 1.6 right? I do remember you had fresh paint, bolt in cage, steering wheel, seat, harness, etc. I think I went to that meet shortly after I swapped my auto trans out but was otherwise completely stock, with my crappy original paint .

If someone had mistook my car for yours, I would tell them that they must be thinking of a much cleaner, and nicer one up north of me! lol

***Actually I misread your post, I'm glad to know when people see my car they can't easily tell how bad of shape my paint (and fenders) are in, especially compared to yours.

Ok awesome, it's funny cause isn't there two Starbucks in that plaza? I assume you mean the one by Moes. Around what time is it usually on Wednesdays? I definitely want to come by one week.

Yep that's me. Car has changed a bunch since you last saw it. It has new wheels and the bolt in cage has been sold for one. Actually as it sits now it's hardly recognizable, or drivable. I'm making it a street legal full time race car. It will see a meet here or there but it won't see the road much unless it's on its way to a track or my Mazdaspeed6 blows up.

But a 200 whp Miata is plenty for a street driven car. My current setup is around 230 whp on the stock engine, with just a modified GReddy kit. You should totally come to the next Tuesday meet and talk shop.

Yeah, I think you're right. The meet is at the one by Moes. People usually start showing up around 9, and it starts getting busier by 10 or so.

Oh ok awesome. I will try to make it out next Tuesday. I think 200~ would be fine and definitely within my budget.
