Default noob from nj

Hello I am 17 years old I now currently own two Miata's.The first one is a 94 Supercharged R Package this is truley the cleanest car I have owned.The second Miata is a bone stock 92 black with tan leather.I am looking to sell the R package to build a locost seven project unless someone has a rolling chassis they want to trade.Wishful thinking on my part probably but that is what I want to do and I hope to acheive that within the next two years.

Upload your pics to a photo sharing website like Photobucket, and link to them from here. If you can't figure out how to get them to display inline, just put a hyperlink to your photobucket album here (the album will have to be public).

If someone here has a locost chassis, they are using it to build a locost. We don't **** around here.

Welcome. You said you may think you know where I work? Where's that? Just wondering. There's a few very knowledgeable miata folk around toms river.

Yea I'm really not that knowledgable about Miata's, but I'm a decent mechanic for being 17 years old.I used to work for Jack S.R.S. He was the towing guy in the same plaza that probably owes you money somehow.

I try stay out of the Shore Motorsports business & local drama as much as I can. I have no idea who SRS is. No one owes me money

Miatas are just about the easiest fuel injected vehicle to tool around on. Very basic, tons of room, relatively cheap parts. I build and install turbo kits using basic harborfreight tools. You'll have no problem.

That sucks. I've yet to destroy a trans and I wouldn't consider myself nice on the drivetrain. I still run the ol' 1.6 tranny too.

The 94 was my first street legal car but I cant help racing around with it.It gives me so much enjoyment beating every honda that tries to race me hence why I have so many tickets. But thats why I want to sell it because I am to tempted to speed around an aquire more points on my license.
