Default Old guy buys old Miata




Howdy folks. Short-time lurker, first-time poster here from Maryland's Eastern Shore. Here's my '92 Black and Tan with 78k miles I bought a month ago from the original owner's mechanic. It runs great and is in mostly excellent shape. I've enjoyed fiddling around with fixing some little issues. Loving that parts are relatively cheap and readily available.

Wish I'd gotten one years ago. It reminds me so much of the '67 Triumph GT6 I had back in the 70s, except it runs, doesn't leak oil, and the electrics work.

An 04 Cooper S was my daily driver until I turned it over to wifey last year after buying a well preserved 95 F150 so now I'm kinda missing the boost although the Miata IS damn fun.

No plans to race it; just want a little more zip. So me thinks I'll lurk for a while and learn what I can.

Welcome to the site, nice intro and clean looking miata. There's tons of good info to get you started in the DIY FAQ.
