Default New to Miatas... and I'm hooked.

Whats up,

I'm B. I'm new here. I'm also new to Miata's.

Just picked up a 2002 NB with 46k original miles, all stock except for the crappy wheels. I initially picked it up to be an economical dd with some sportiness, and well, I must say I am impressed by this little car, and have decided to keep it, and build it out with some go-fast parts.

I've been working in the Automotive industry for about 5 years now, making dreams happen, started off working with some builders back east, wound up moving west and doing R&D for some of the top race teams in the country (to remain anonymous so don't ask). I've since moved onto the sales side of things, working management in a dealership, as well as doing some side jobs for former clients.

I also build motorcycles and I am also an amateur car collector, hoping to bump that status up in the near future.

Oh and how can I forget, I have automotive ADD and change cars more than most people change socks...

Anyways, here are some pics of my Miata, since thats what you're all here for...


















I just installed my 1st mod too... A cheapo touch screen radio with Bluetooth so I don't have to keep using old scratched CDs.






And some of my other toys (arranged by year because OCD):

2014 Jeep Wrangler (just sold)



2002 Jeep Wrangler



2000 Ferrari 360 Modena






1980 Yamaha XS650




1979 Fiat 124 Spider (currently under suspension and cosmetic construction)




1979 Yamaha XS750 Cafe (project with literally no progress pictures)

Welcome aboard.

I long for the days when I lived in the southwest and had access to an abundance of rust-free cars. That Fiat tickles my *****.

Nice collection.
Any plans for the Miata, or are you just keeping it stock?
