Default New Guy From VA

Hey All,

My name is John and I am on my second miata. I had a rusted out '92 I loved, but had to sell because I needed the money. I picked up a 1994 with 101K miles, 1.8, LSD, power windows, cc, headrest speakers, one year old top, and the front and reat lip package. I towed it home as it was sitting for two years, and got to work. I had it down off the jack stands and on the road in one week.

It has a hard dog roll bar, jackson racing exhaust and intake, racing beat front and rear sway bars, the front turn signal air inlets, mesh grill I made yesterday for $9, and will have raceland coilovers next week (turbo will have to wait a few weeks). I have attached some pics of the day I picked it up and the last ones are when I was all done including complete interior and exterior cleaning and waxing. I put a lot of hours into this thing but it has all the maintenance done and and runs amazing.

Maintenance included:
  • Brakes and Rotors all the way around
  • Plugs and Wires
  • Oil and Filter Change
  • Trans Fluid Change
  • Diff Fluid Change
  • Valve Cover Gasket
  • Both Accessory Belts
  • New Air bag Control Module (one of the reasons it was so cheap)
  • New Radiator
  • Balanced the Tires
  • Adjusted the TPS to OEM specs
  • Brake System Bleed with new fluid
  • Coolant Flush (obviously with the new radiator)
  • Clutch System Bleed with new fluid

Can't wait till I can lower it next week and I am of course excited about the turbo, but as I said it will have to wait till I have a little but more money.

Ready for the best part....Including the price of the car, the after market parts, and all the maintenance I only have $860 in the car.
