Default Intro

I bought a 90 miata maybe 4 months ago. It came with a ACT clutch and some major maintenance done. It's white with a new glass window soft top. Fun little car and its better on gas than my last car, Sc300.
I'm far from new to the car game, i raced DSMs for a few years in college and worked at a DSM shop in north jersey for a year. I've done plenty, built some cars and been lucky enough to drive just about everything (911TT, Diablo, FordGT, big power Supras).
I don'y much care for wrenching anymore, my free time goes to the gym and the black box AKA television.

What else, I guess I found this site from the Mob members. They are some good guys and have made me stay in his scene after my car got hit 2 months ago. I'd like to get my post count up so i can haggle on some classified ads, so this seems like the best place to start.

Maybe I will turbo this thing next spring. The only other mods planned for this year is a 99 sport suspension i should be getting from another MT member in August and one of those 3point front STB to clean up the cowl shake. Ah, and probably a hardtop and some snows for the winter. I think that's a more fiscally wise move than a beater SUV for winter.


P.S. Eat me raw and Paul is short.

Great first post

You will have a fine stay at this site if you keep your posts like that. Only problem I can see with your intro is your lack of pictures! Welcome and good luck with the ritualistic NOOB hazing's around here, don't take it to heart.

I'm not going to lie, I HATE having to post with proper grammar and above average sentence structure. It KILLS me. But there are nothing but grammar ***** on every forum. Such is life.

Hazing is fine. And my car is nothing special, white 90 with a boss frog double hoop.

Ehh, we just love pictures here. As long s you don't ask any stupid questions WITHOUT serching and proving that you've done your homework to try to find the answer yourself you will be fine. No spoon-feeding here as others would say.

you can post with misspellings and bad grammar here. I'm not going to waste time harassing you about it.








I will just think you're an idiot.
