Default MidWest LowLife

Hello all you Miata owners. My name is Noah and this is my 1996 roadster. The car has 161,xxx on the ticker and runs like a top. It has a Flyin Miata front strut tower bar and Tokico Illumina shocks. It has eBay wheels with Optimo tires. I hope to turbo it next winter after I finish another project and get done with college.

What's wrong with your tires?

Haha.
Girz0r - I like the way it looks, so I maxed the camber.

18psi- I know. He sticker bombed my headlight covers, instrument cluster hood and my finish panel. Damn punks.

Get out.

Also, how're you not blind from the reflection of the maaaad stickrz on your cluster hood? That would drive me nuts.

Oh. I didn't know it was your build. I'm sorry. Should I have less camber?

serious question: how can anyone with eyesight think that disgusting panel looks cool?
Like what about that makes you think it looks good?

and don't say "to be different" cause your car looks just as stupid as 100000 other stancekids and hardparkers rides, except it's not even stanced, it looks like a stock car modified by a 3 year old who got a bunch of free stickers at the dentists office

The tires I got were free.99 from a buddy, I might buy better ones come autox season, and it's not my end goal, but I think it looks pretty neat.

I say this with all honesty: it's ugly as sin. this isn't subjective, this is objective truth.
but I'm sure you will just call us #haterz or something else equally typical

good luck with........whatever you're doing
