Default New to the forum with two Miatas

Hey all,
My name is Cameron. Currently a 2 Miata owning car guy (with 4 other cars laying around the house). Thought I would start joining some forums since I am looking to start getting one of my cars ready to sell and the other ready to autocross this spring.

I'll just give a little information about myself. I've been a car guy since I was little. Always liked working on cars and of course I love taking them out so full little drives down twisty back roads. A friend of mine in high school bought a blue 92 Miata. After driving it, I fell in love. Since then I have constantly been keeping an eye out for one and bought a red 93 about 6 months ago (6 years after my friend getting one) with a few issues (like rust). But I just got a blue 92 with 109k, no rocker panel rust, nice top, etc. So I will be on here looking for parts and slowly documenting my progress. Hoping to turbo it in a year or two.

Hopefully I can find some meets around the Philadelphia area and meet up with some of you guys. Glad to be on the forum

-Cameron

Haven't been on since I posted last. The blue Miata fell through. It had a Lemon title, so I backed out because in PA it stays on the title. I know it's not a huge deal, but for resale reasons down the road, I chose not to deal with it. Here are some pictures of my red '93 MX-5.

I just picked up a hard top for it right after having a buddy do some rust repair (he welded in metal, then covered with fiberglass and primer.). I am still unsure of whether I want to keep it, or sell it and buy a 94-96 or a 2000+. I would prefer to start with a car with lower miles and no rust ever, but I only paid 2,100 for this car so I'm kinda wondering if I should just keep it and have fun with it, any suggestions on that?

I want to go turbo eventually (180-200 HP), just need to save some money this summer and sell a Ford 302, a bunch of cars and misc. crap I have around the house. Mostly I just want to have a fun daily driver/autocross, and MAYBE track car (down the road). I of course am here to get ideas and learn. I know I'm going to have stupid ideas that hopefully some of you will smack me around and point me in the right direction.
Thanks in advance,
-Cameron

keep that car, and slap a 1.8 in it (assuming it has a 1.6 now) the NA is a great platform to use. Everyone has their own opinion on what is better between the NA and NB... never hear anyone talking about the NC, as its just not cost effective i assume.
I have 2 NA's now, but have HAD 4 total. I love the platform, and it is sooooo easy to work on
