Default Noob to the Miata (oh god another one)

I dont own the car yet.

But I have built a few different cars

About Five dodge trucks (Because they are dirt cheap and every part for twenty years fits each other, I mean EVERY part.

Toyota 22r NA on an ugly *** brown toyota with Dodge (uh yea) cop wheels, a built engine with borla exhaust and aluminum flywheel that would stomp slow imports with 20,000 in show parts and a coffee can dragging behind. That truck was cool.

Mazda MX6 with a V6 and a five speed.. Well I didnt really do much to that one, because its already rather fast, and I had to sell it because I was younger and got too many tickets. And I got tired of the probe jokes.

After that, I dropped cars altogether. I just drove them till they broke and got another one. I got tired of mechanics at home since I am also a 15+ year mechanic at work.

But now I want another project. I looked at old muscle cars (cant get a car for under 8000 that will actually move forward, and most of the time doesnt even have an engine). Newer muscle cars like a mustang (too ordinary, and I really dont want to do a V8 anyway). Trucks, I have had enough of those.
Then I started thinking about roadsters. I was looking at older stuff like austin martins and triumphs. Thats when I found what I wanted in a miata. I read the history of its concept and found that all along I should have gotten one. Its a car that is capable of amazing performance and able to still be practical on the street.

Hope to be around for awhile.

Have you driven one yet?

Because that's the best part.

It is really hard to climb out of this car with a frown on.

Also where are you located?

I live in lake charles louisiana. I have heard that statement alot. I also talked to a couple of people who are tall. I am six foot, but I am sure that wont really matter.

I tried to change my settings to show where I live, but for some reason I keep getting some security token response. I havent really had time to fix it yet today.

I understand where people want to know other members location. I also like it when the age is put up.. I am 36, and plan on putting that on in my settings also..

Since I got to be able to post this, whats the name of that really good book that tells the ins and outs of these cars?
