Default New! And looking for another Miata.

My name is Spencer, and I've been on this site for a few months, mostly just reading through posts and the classifieds.

I owned a stock 1994 Mazda MX-5 Miata M-Edition for 4 years until my roommate slid it into a curb at 40. Since he basically trashed the car and had no money, I was lucky enough to get rid of the car for what I did. But I must say, it was the most reliable and nimble car I had ever driven. Since, I'm itching to get another, except with track like qualities, and turbo'd with ~250rwhp.

Whilst in the hunt, I just wanted to introduce myself and thank you all for the the awesome site!

The Miata is in the background here, and unfortunately I sold the Z as well.

Welcome! I've always loved 300ZX's... They look kinda like the poor man's lambo

12K is quite the budget for a miata.. It should definitely get you a quality car. Good luck!
