Default Newb from Seattle Area

Hi,
I'm relatively new to the forum and Miatas. I picked up my Club Sport 13 months ago and have been loving it ever since. I'm just here to learn some stuff, hopefully meet some people in the area, and upgrade my ride a bit. I'm collecting parts for a FMII style setup, planning on running boost by the end of this year. I've always considered myself a pretty good driver and have been known to throw my Lincoln into turns that BMW's would back out of, but there's always room for improvement and this is about half the size and weight of any other car I've owned so it's a different animal entirely. I also ride motorcycles (when weather permits), and play music professionally. I've been saying this for 13 months, but one of these days I will snap a picture of my car and post it.......

What kind of Lincoln? What is your band's name? Hmm, Greater Seattle, Pearl Jam?

It was a 98 Continental! Lighter than it looks but quite a big car none the less. Geoff Tate solo band.

Ah, believe it or not mine was fwd. it actually did better in the snow( with chains) than most 4wd trucks. A friend of mine had a Mark VIII around the same time which replaced his 68 Cadillac Hearse..... that was a fun car....

welcome man! this is a great site for info to get started on a miata build, cant wait to see pics of what you have!!!
Been a fan of Geoff Tate for a long time... one of the best metal vocalists of all time... i know im young, but my dad was obsessed with Queensrych, and it rubbed off on me a bit. lol
You guys plan on touring to the east coast any time soon??
