Default Pixie: A new beginning

Afternoon,

My name is Mackenzie. I live in Colorado where I own and operate a small turbocharger sales and repair company. I have been in the turbocharger industry for the last 9 years and have really devoted it to my passion. Someone from m.net suggested I come over and introduce myself.

I decided I wanted a new project car after selling some of my stable of vehicles. I purchased a 2 owner 1995 M edition from a couple that has 98K miles on it. It has service records dating back to the original owner as well as alot of extras that came with it. My plans is to make this a pretty much dedicated track car that will also spend a bit of its time on the streets. I have done a good majority of maintenance to it since I bought it such as plugs, wires, shifter rebuild, fluids, filters ect.

I just started some of my major purchases for it today which includes some 949 XidaCS 700/400 with NB mounts and helpers, 15x8 6UL's and as well as a some Alumalite for some aero mods I plan on making for it. Figured I would post pictures of how Pixie (my sisters name for her) is currently and to introduce myself.

Welcome to the board!

Your car is very clean, I like it. The BBS rims look great on that color!

Do you have a cat ?

Wow, beautiful car you got there. I'd be scared to take it to the track and aero mod it too much. It's easier to hack up my POS car since the body work can't get much worse.

I'm only doing mods that can be reversed, I will buy a separate trunk for the rear wing. Hopefully it doesn't catch to much racing rash also.

Not a cat owner, actually pretty scared of any cats, they are just to unpredictable for my liking.

My sister thought buying a Miata that was purple was quite girly, so she decided to name it that! We name each others cars (Here last saturn was named Shaniqua and her current prius is named Peggy)! Being a 6,1 210LB male, I get interesting looks when I tell them it's name.
