Hello all. Last fall I bought a 1995 Miata for a nice little project car. It has 133k but runs pretty well. The paint was clean (even though I plan to repaint it) and the interior is especially nice, which is something I am ---- about. I enjoy modifying cars and over the years I have owned a few different ones: 1991 Mustang 5.0 Notchback, 1991 Eagle Talon TSi, 2001 Subaru 2.5 RS, 2004 WRX, 2006 WRX Cobb Stage 2, 2001 Honda S2000, 2002 Nissan Setnra SE-R Spec V, etc. Unfortunately I fell on hard times the last few years and had to sell my beloved S2000 and my 2006 WRX. I was able to save a few pennies and buy the Miata because I enjoy small, rear wheel drive cars that are affordable and fun to work on. Since I may turbo down the road, this site is an excellent source of information. Thanks for putting together a great site!

P.S. I will post pics when I get a chance, but the car is in pieces.

Welcome! Why is that roll bar so narrow?

Ebay style bar. The one with the flat platform between hoop legs and rear legs.

Exactly. Simple bolt in for added rigidity. I will not be tracking the car and the autokonexion fastback roof is light weight kevlar so I figured I would add something for support.
