Default hey from rockville

My name is Mike, i drive a 1995 montigo blue miata, i joined this forum a while ago but havent really been active untill now, i have been looking into going turbo, now that i have a job and will actually have money to do so haha. If your on clubroadster you might have seen my car a little bit and possibly if you live in the rockville md area. I am building my car to be a track car, i hope to do some hpde's soon, but right now i have gotten into drifting i have done about 18 drift events, and have been slowly modding and tinkering around with my car, and i feel that im almost ready for some more power, i have heard this place was full of information hopefully i can meet some people in the md va area and maybe check out some cars and talk turbo stuff haha... anyways onto some pics of the car haha, sorry i have a crappy camera so all the pics of my car are from track photo guys

car on track = win. welcome to the forums.

btw, i find it strangely odd that the still pic of the car is blurrier than the moving pics.

Nice ride!

I think I've seen you on I270 here and there. Always up to meet another member that is local and share knowledge.

Lemme know if you want to meet over by Kentlands or Rio some evening to compare notes.

Cheers,
Matt

Hell, Let's GTG sometime this weekend then! How about Saturday afternoon at 4 PM on the top (roof) of the garage closest to California Pizza Kitchen at the Rio Center?

In fact, maybe we can get some others to come and show off their wares as well... sorta a last get together before winter?

Cheers,
Prospero

Welcome to the forum! I grew up in Rockville and frequent it. I'm currently in Ashburn, VA.

I've got a montego blue 1997 model. Won't be able to meet up this weekend. I'll be at the Delaware dyno day though next weekend. A bunch of us are heading up there.
