The car is a 99' silver/black combo. Leather seats, all the major maintenance was done so I didn't have to fork up more money. Just minor fixes which I'm doing slowly.


Few things on the list done already:

-Fixed a nasty coolant leak (old heater hose)
-Fixed an oil leak (seal behind oil cooler)
-Chrome inner door handles
-Power locks install (half way there) & wire it into the alarm
-Auto/Gear selector boogie/loose (replaced bushings, good as new now)

Need to do:

-Replace tranny fluid
-Replace diff fluid
-Replace brake fluid
-Maybe change the rotors and brake pads
-Replace basically all the seals on the head/valve cover area
-New spark plugs
-Get a plug/block off for the antenna (gotta love a clean car)
-SLAM CAR (have springs and coilovers, just need to sit down and do it)
-WHEELS!
That is great how you have absolutely zero performance modifications planned. Awesome.

He really only needs one more post to be able to sell his car here.

I don't think I could own a car after being shunned by its community, I don't understand how someone like Hyper or SlideRuler exists. I'm using the word exist loosely here, of course.

With a lowered Miata it's different. I won't get into the specifics (read in the suspension section) but there are those in the Miata world who care about suspension performance, and those who slam their cars. You just have to figure out which group you belong to.
ah, I see. This car was never going to be really slammed. Just lowered enough to hide some wheel gap, it's a project car I plan to give to my GF to drive around till she goes into med school.

SLVMX5, if that is your real name, you'll find that thick foreskin goes a long way here. Welcome.
Skins real DEEP, I mean thick. Seems like a fun place to be in, plenty of humor to get me through the day.

Yes in deep. You don't consider lowering performance? I'm more concerned about driving with peace of mind and then performance.

Thanks for the advice but I'm pretty sure I can handle this.

Pics of alleged girlfriend or we're going to all assume the reason your car won't be slammed is because she's fat and it'll scrape when she drives it.

Wait, wait, wait.

We've looked smart (aka, non-dumb) in the past? Since when?!?

Mike Tyson is actually extremely quotable. Much more so than Mohammed Ali.

Here:

"I have the same malice in my heart as far as the fight game is concerned, but outside the ring, I won't say anything a dignified man won't say."

"I want to rip out his heart and feed it to Lennox Lewis. I want to kill people. I want to rip their stomachs out and eat their children."

And LOL at "SLVMX5, if that is your real name"
