Default New to the forum from NJ

Hi I am new here. I just recently started looking into a miata. I have been a "honda guy" yea i know fwd sucks so a couple years ago I got my first Subaru and I really love the awd. Now I am trying to get a fun summer car and maybe do some auto x. Currently I have a 2004 Subaru wagon that has a slightly small list of mods and I am hoping to trade for or sell to get a Miata. 90-97 preferably.

Welcome.

Take a look around first before you post too much. It is an easy mistake to start posting before you read the stickies and see what is going on first. It is a mistake I made when I joined.

Remember that a lot of people ask the same stupid questions over and over. It is irritating to regular members. Try to use the search function to find answers to your questions first. Once you spend some time here, you will get the hang of it.

Ironically there are quite a few Subie enthusiasts on this forum. Tell us about your ride.

Take the licenses plate out of your front window. It is not legal to have there and cops know if it is there it is an easy ticket for not running a front plate properly. You are better off just running without one because a cop then has to see your rear plate to know you are from Jersey to know you are required to have a front plate. Also if you are in an accident they can fly around in the car and hit you and hurt.

There are regular meets. I have never been to any but the FB group Miata Militia and Nj miatas have something going on usually.

My social anxiety disorder keeps me indoors, on the toilet mostly.

I haven't gone on a Miata run in a couple years. Now with my new kid, I doubt I will be attending anything like that for...a while.
