Default Lurker Denoobination Commencement Ceremony

Okay, I haven't lurked that much, but I made this user name a while ago when I registered for CurbLoadsturd ('cause I'm a serious racer, yo) and forgot that this existed. CurbLoadsturd sucks, and I'm glad to have another option (which as I can tell already, is a superior option, no kiss-*** intended.)
I've got three Miatas, one '94, one '90 ('89 build date, so undeniable JDM status), and one '96 (pending delivery) soon to be gutted track car projectola.
I've also got a 1985 Volvo 244TI with a 15G TD04 at 16PSI, which was supposed to be a daily driver, but we all know how that goes.

The Volvo has been through many different stages of physical appearance, and that's where I've done the most changes. Other than basic upgrades like a bigger turbo, an IPD cam, an adujustable cam gear, the loudest eBay blow off valve I could find (that's for making ricers WTF when I come upon them on the road) for lols, an MBC, and tuning to Bosch K-Jet, not much has actually happened to it. I was building a motor for it (2.4L B230FT with balanced everything, basically a bulletproof cheapie build) but my buddy spun a rod bearing and so that went his direction (his is a 16valve car on a massive eBay turbo, so he'll be in the 350hp range if he ever decides to get it tuned properly) instead of into my Volvo.

These are old pictures, I need new pictures of the car I'll post up soon. The car is currently going in the direction of having a 242 Homologation front end with a flat hood instead of the coffin hood.

Here's a shitty current pic, minus the ugly fogs and front plate:

Here's my first and current Miata, a 1994 base with a Mazdaspeed torsen, Fujitsubo exhaust, Lotus seat, Tein Super Streets, 6UL's, and a bunch of other random fun goodies. This picture is a bit old, appearance wise now, it's no longer on the RPF1's, and it has an R package front and rear lip.

Here's the '89 car that I actually purchased to flip (and thus, will soon be sold as I have ravaged it of its baubles). $2200 for a car with a hardtop, Megan Track coilovers, those lovely XXR's, and some other upgrades... With 350K mi. It's the red one (obviously...)
