Cool Hey gang, NOOB from Davidson, NC. Just bought my 1990 today

Been perusing the site for a couple weeks now and went and bought my first miata today, and Im already loving it! My first RWD car, so I had to break her in with a few donuts.

The car: Silver 1990. New top, new tires, lady driven (duh ) and just hit 110k miles. Picked it up for $2500 in Concord, NC.



My goals? Got my eye on the Shanghai S (of course). Start with that after I drive stock for a while and compete in my first autocross. My miata will be my dd, so looking for reliability above all-out performance. Low boost, decent coil overs, and lightweight wheels and I'll be happy.

Have a co-worker that drifts 240s, so I am excited about getting involved in that as well.

Let me know if there are any local hangouts. Im in Charlotte a lot.Work in Mooresville.

Thanks for the video! Kid is nuts. I'll never be that good. Can't risk wrecking my DD.
