Default Lurker Exposed

First off, my name is Drew, I'm 20, and I've been playing with cars for the past five years. I've already spent quite a bit of time getting information and buying parts off of this forum as well as clubroadster, but this is my first time posting.

My miata is a 1991 1.6. I bought it stock from a teenage girl about 8 months ago. I have since done the basic modifications: AMR coilovers 650/350lbs, hardtop, HD roll bar, frame rails, 1.8 brakes, 14x7 panasports, RB front sway, along with some other parts. The engine is currently bone stock as I'm trying to get it in perfect shape before I mess with forced induction or install the diypnp I've built.

Before the Miata, I only owned German cars including two E30s, a MK2 GTi with a VR6 engine swap, and a 1975 VW Transporter. I've also restored a crashed/bro'd out kawasaki ZX7R, and built a CB350 cafe racer.

Thanks for checking this out. Here are some ghetto pictures of my car:

Sorry to disappoint, I figured this was the safer route.

Thanks. No pics of the girl, I just remember her by all the parts I have to replace because she couldn't maintain the car. I'll see if I can get any pictures of the bike, I did document the build, but I lost my camera with all the pictures. I sold it maybe 4 months ago.
