Default NOOB from northeast PA

Making my introduction to the forum, my name is Todd, I am 26 and this is my first Miata which I purchased just over a month ago as a project car. 1992 white, 5 spd, 1.6l, AC, power steering with around 133,000 miles on it. First items replaced were the master and slave cylinder, next was a shifter rebuild from planet miata followed by FM frame rails. After that I stripped the trunk and interior, made a front subframe brace and installed V-Maxx coilovers. My suspension was very shot with both front springs broken. I am a member of the NEPA SCCA and will be competeing in solo this year and hope to learn a lot here and at the events.

I am a project engineer for a construction management firm and will be getting married in September of this year.

Welcome! I had no idea we had so many PA members. I'm down in Clarksburg, WV but I spend a lot of time at BeaveRun/PIRC in Pittsburgh and will be up in the NEPA area later this year for the Weatherly & Giants Despair hill climbs.
