prepare to be underwhelmed...

I just bought a '94 Miata. It had power mirrors and air conditioning. I removed the perfectly good A/C because it's a convertible, AND ounces weigh pounds.

The brakes were crappy, so I replaced all the calipers, rotors, and pads. Then flushed it all with DOT 5.1.

I also installed a set of flyin miata sway bars i found on cl.

Lastly, the no-name tires were lame, so I put some RT615k's on the stock rims.

That's pretty much it. I wasn't looking for another car, but for $1,500 I could hardly pass it up.




My other car is a Ford P71 that I swapped a 5.4 triton into.



Flame away.

Welp, here's the Ford




Don't really have any of the Miata. It's stock. Red. Ratty ragtop. If you've seen one....

The Falkens are okay. I probably should have tried something new since I've had them before, but I knew I wouldn't be disappointed.
