Talking Hi from France!

Hi all,

I'm Régis, a happy owner of a 1992 Mazda Mx-5.
I want to know more about my cars (and others) and share knowledge with you.

I plan to derust it and in the futur put some respiratory aids to it

I also have à Citroën AX, a little hatch back fwd with now around 130 hp for around 800 kg.
Nice pocket rocket!

I share with my father his old family car, a Ford Taunus (Cortina on AUS and UK market) in which I plan to put a Cosworth V6 in it.
It also need to be derusted too.

I was a member of the Microjoule Team (world record of fuel consumption) and a technician in "Engine breathing" for the car maker Renault in the south of Paris.
I worked on the camshaft of this engine

Enought talk, there's some pictures of my pride and joy (almost)



in cleaning


clean on the left, on "buying state" on the right ...



Here is my "atmomic burger box" on wheels





And at last my old ford lump



and its engine (1.6l 4 cylinder, "pinto" engine, 88 hp din @ 5700 rpm, bore x stroke => 88mm X 66mm (quite racy isn't it)
Exhaust manifold is genuine



Happy to be on Miata Turbo!
see you

Welcome to the site! Miata looks good, burger box looks like a riot, Taunus looks like a dog (tee hee). We've got some great info here. Enjoy!

Hi,

Exactly, here Na's were sold in White or Red.

Mine is originaly from Belgium, but it was a limited Black edition.

So it's equiped with tan leather, VLSD, Rear subframe reinforcement, no electric windows, no central locking, no power assisted steering.

So, perfect for me

Hi turbofan,

sorry I don't understand the joke

What the meaning of "Hazing"?

Don't worry about the joke. Hazing is basically giving someone a hard time because they're new. You won't get as much of that since they tend to go easy on people for whom English is not their first language.
