Default Norfolk, VA. Noob.

Hey guys.

Just picked up a 1990 short nose (boo) Smurf. She has 60K on the ticker and is quite the little car. By no means the fastest thing i have ever driven but DEFFINATLY the most fun. This is my first Miata. I am not quite sure what road i am headed down as far as upgrades because it will be my gas saver. All i know is there is much fun to be had and i look forward to being apart of this community

Mike

FWIW I consistently get 30mpg with my Miata. Well, when I try real hard to stay out of boost.

Welcome.
