keith d,

Have you ever seen a show like mythbusters, where there is one primary story line that's really interesting and you have to wait until the end of the show to see the result. You've no doubt also notice that there are several other side storys, or 'B segments', that you couldn't give a crap about, because they're not very interesting and are only there to fill time anyways?

your intro post is one of those 'B segments' - please try again.

Welcome to our little gathering place. Read the good info in the FAQ about building a turbo Miata and watch out with regard to asking questions without searching to see if it has already been asked. That's one of the no-no's around here.

Good luck and have fun.

What they're getting at is that you aren't providing much information about your car, we like to know the details. Regardless, I spy a style bar and potentially heavy wheels. However, I also see an older FM/Bell intercooler, so there's some redemption. Nonetheless, welcome! And don't take things around here too seriously.

Read the links above, and post a little more info about you and the car. So far, so good.

Grant

If his car was cuter, then maybe Kari; I'd do Kari on the right occassion.

Stop asking "where" and start asking "how"

See the answer to "how" posted by lordrigamus above. Read the second link for starters.

Not yet but spelling, grammar and punctuation go a long way around here. Lack of effort in your post will reflect a lack of effort in everything else. Most people here wont waste their time reading a "lazy post" unless it's to give you grief. This is not a forum filled with 12 year olds.

I'm not trying to give you attitude, just letting you know. Read the stickies and make sure you do your research before asking a question that has been asked 1000 times before. Don't worry you're off to a pretty good start.

ANY occasion is the right occasion for her.

i'm sorry if i offended some of you here, i apologize.. as for me not using proper grammer and punctuation, i didn't know i was back in high school writing an essay.. implying that i'm lazy is insulting, i thought there were adults here, but i guess not.. i'm sorry i don't appear to be up to standards like some of you fine folkzs and very sorry i wasted your time, all i tried to do was say hello as a stranger to you all as a group...

Geez I didn't think they were even being that mean..

It's insulting to us when you don't take the effort to type correctly and/or proof read. Do you realize that through your typing is the only way we can really get a feel for you? No one asks for too much here.

Capitalize the first letter of each sentence, throw in a period here and there. Right click and correct spelling errors with the built in spell checkers. Break long posts up with paragraphs.

Not hard. If it's not worth it to you to do that then we won't miss you.
