Default Noob from SoCal

Hey everyone.

I am new here and looking at buying a Miata. I have been looking at getting
one for the past two years, but have been side tracked with other things.

A little history about myself. I used to own a AE86 coupe, sold it and bought a B13 SE-R, destroyed that and bought my current car which is a 04 WRX.

Hopefully I can pick up a clean NA for a great deal in the next couple weeks.

You gotta decide first whether you want a 1.6 L or a 1.8 L.
