Default New guy from Virginia Beach, VA

Hello everyone,

I am brand damn new to this forum and am looking very forward to learning a lot from everyone.

I currently own a 2009 mazdaspeed3 and am looking to find a 94 Miata. I love my speed3, but there is only so far you can take a front wheel drive car.

I hope I dont **** anyone off by not owning a Miata yet, but all I see when I search for information on them is links to this site. So I figured what the hell I will register. I would love to take every bit of knowledge possible with me from this site so I can make a better decision when I do make my purchase.

I now plan on searching until I start bleeding from every orifice in my head from all the knowledge I recieve and look forward to chatting with you all and possibly meeting some of you. Have a great day.

Tommy

Howdy. Nothing wrong with reading, learning, and making the best decisions possible about a car before you buy one. I was a member here for 2+ years before I bought one. Use the search function, read as much as you can stomach, then start a list and a savings account

Pics of the Speed3? I've always thought that would be a great DD.

Thank you all very much. I am happy to be apart of the forum now and the miata community soon.

I may have found the one!!! A 97 with a 112k on the clock. Only thing is, no LSD :(

I know what my first big project will be.

Hey how are you. I am really looking forward to meeting the local crowd once I get my car picked. I am hoping to get in there pretty good with the local guys so I can have one go with me when I am looking at the differant cars to assist in the check.

I want to update everyone really quick hear. I have found the car and will be picking it up this after noon. It is a 95 m edition with 153k on the clock interior minus steering wheel wear and driver side bolster wear is immaculate. Brand new top bosy and under carriage is completely rust free. Paint is amazing engine is very clean and everything seems very very nice. It has the FM butterfly brace on it and the bilsteins with the groundcontrol sleeves. I will post pics of it tomorrow. As for the speed three... these are old but I will get some new ones of the cars together.[/IMG][/IMG][/IMG] I might be retarded but I dont know if those pictures worked. However before noob flamage lol I did follow the directions on the how to post pictures thread LOL

Pictures didn't work. Easy way to do it is upload them to an image hosting site like photobucket, when you make a thread relpy you can click the image button and paste the link to your photo or you can use the image tags [img](paste url here)[/img].
