Default I've put it off for too long...

Well after hanging around the sale only board for quite some time, the day has come to introduce myself. I'm from Miami lived here all my life and have wanted a Miata since I can remember. First time I saw one was when I bought Need For Speed Underground, I can still recall siting in my living room with my Ps2 just starting the game up for the first time. I went straight to the show room and started browsing around, a certain car jumped out at me and had me hooked immediately obviously that was the Miata. I was like "DAMN!!! I want that when I get my licence" but at the time it was an NB on screen and not my eventual car an NA. I had said to myself "Man I wish it had flip lights like an AE86" I knew a little about car because my cousin had the complete Initial D manga and had lent it to me so it was kinda my first taste of the whole "fast cars are cool" thing but I digress after seeing a Miata and truly wanting one. I then caught a glimpse of the most badass thing I'd ever seen that same day I saw my first NA and that truly caught my attention, it was a Smurf blue and had a the lip kit, my jaw fell to the ground. It was parked outside the market and man was it beautiful. There was a slight thing that blindsided. Me not only was it blue like Thomas The train but it was just as slow as Thomas The Train; I later fixed that with BOOST!!! So yeah guys here I am. CHOO CHOO MOTHER ******!!!!

There's actually less ---- rape-age than usual in this thread, all things considered.

I thought your car was blue from the story :(, car looks decent though. What's your turbo setup consist of?

Welcome. I'm glad you have a Megasquirt. That tells me there is a good chance you will survive here.

You might consider protecting your brake master cylinder from exhaust heat with a little shield. They will occasionally melt from the heat if you push the car hard.
