Default Just picked up my first Miata

I've been learking while lookin for a car, and today finally I picked up a very clean, white 97' NA8 5 speed with 86K miles for $4.5K.
Very happy with it, although I can't really drive it tell' I get tags, registration and insurance on Monday morning.

As far as major modifications, first comes a hard dog or boss frog roll bar, after that I want to get a DIY Megasquirt, do something with the suspension (coilovers or maybe a set of springs & shocks) and a turbo, or possably a supercharger if I can get one for the right price.

As far as small stuff, I'm gonna do a DIY "home depot" front lip spoiler, a DIY CAI/TSI, and fix the radio or speaker. Also, I'd like to upholster the seats, steering wheel other stuff with alcantara.
