Default New owner from Knoxville, TN

Well, my name is Josh. I am not new to Miatas but this is my first time having one. It's a 1994 Leguna Blue w/ Hard top. Modifications as of right now are Koni Orange Shocks, FM front sway, Hard Dog Fat Boy Roll Bar, and it currently has Falken Azenis.

I'm involved with the ETRSCCA Solo II crowd and am a regular at that curvy little section on HWY 129.

I don't have super major plans for the car. I'd like to fix the few small things wrong with it. I currently have 15x8 TRM C1 wheels with pixi dust tires (195 Toyo R1Rs) that I will use in Autocross to run in STR also looking for some used FM springs for temp use. My biggest plans are to go up to 15x9 6ULs with 225 RS3s or the new BFG that seems to be getting a lot of attention and getting AST Xida Club Sport coilovers.

I came from the Honda world still currently own 2 CRXs one that is full blown race car and the other is a stockish HF. Most likely selling the HF and have been considering parting out the race car since I got the Miata but I'm not sure if I will go that far.

I am very happy to be a part of the Miata community now

I'm envious of anyone that has a hard top. I hate you and welcome.

Thanks!

Just working on a few maintenance things first.

Ordered HPS front and HP+ rear pads, a new speedometer cable, and a cup holder. Next purchases will be a new meter hood. I haven't had the nerve to order the AST Club Sports yet... as much as I want to.

Go to your dad's and fix the fenders/hood. It wouldn't have hardly any body/paint flaws then!

No fixing these fenders. Be better off replacing them as much work as they need. Once I get new fenders then it'll be game to paint it... back to the right shade of Laguna Blue lol. Rest of the body is straight just some heavy scratches.
