Default New guy from VA

Hey guys just wanted to say hi. Been with Mazda for a long time and hoping to stay that way. I currently own a 2010 MZ3 but I'm selling it for 96 MX-5 and a 2012 MS3. Been wanting these two for such a long time. Dont worry I'm not a noob to forums either so I'm not gonna create stupid post everytime for a question. Hoping to learn a lot since there seems to be a lot of knowledge and information on this forum. Want to def turbo the mx-5 and track it.

Where precisely are you in VA? Be sure to update your profile info and say some more about yourself otherwise post #2 will make much more sense to you soon.

*Ok profile updated*
Sorry should have said some stuff about me
Anyway here goes Im 24, I'm from fairfax, VA and I'm an airplane mechanic FT and PT Pilot. I have owned 3 Mazda's. Started off with a 1988 Black 323 then moved on to 2004 MZ3 and then to what I have now. Was trying to get genpu when it first came out but none were available at my dealer until the next month. So I've been trying to get a 2012 MS3 and a 1997 MX-5

This is currently my MZ3 obviously Im sure most of you gonna hate it since I like to be different then others. lol I've been trying to get this MZ3 to become a rally car since I used to race in a lil town in France learned somewhat but not much lol. I was trying to import the AWD system from japan to my car but decided to give up and do nothing. Now Im back in the plans to get an STI for that but that will be later.


Im currently working on an offer with a dealer in PA to buy this miata sounds like a good price to me but dont have too much money to start rebuilding it yet since my GF has lost her job and I have to support her. Her is the one Im trying to get just hope its in good enough shape to drive it back down to my house

Price: $4,990
Mileage:87,671 miles

Year of the Miata? Looks stock...anything hiding under there? If no, too much moneys. I've got about that much total in my car (w/ 100K miles & a hardtop) and almost all the goodies to turbo it. Keep looking and you ought to be able to find a clean, low mileage NA for at least $1K+ less.

If you pay $5K for a car that is stock I will be a sad panda. Don't go over 2.5-3k for a stocker and if you're patient, you can find them even cheaper.

1997 and yeah its stock I was gonna try and bring it down a bit but who knows The lowest that I have found was 2k but it had already 190k on it. There was another one that was 1996 same thing as well but it just got sold yesterday so I had to restart the search.
