The new whip. M(azda) content.

Yep. 1994 Mazda Miata. 94k on the clock. Black paint/tan leather. Drove it, and it's great. PO had it for 7 years with no problems at all.

Going to rock it as is for the winter (lol) and then in the spring put new 16" wheels on it, and a new suspension. I also will be doing a full fluid flush, plugs, wires, and all the boring crap.

It already has the lightest OEM wheels on it now (hello, 11 pounds each) so I'm going to sell those to someone that cares, and get some steelies for winter use. It's OBD1, so it's like the C900 as far as screwing with the engine goes. Torsen LSD rear end too. That's also good fun.

It's pretty damn clean, as you can see by the pictures:













Headrest speakers!

This thing is a riot. It's like a glove, but it's a car.

Damn - that thing is clean. Why not keep the wheels? They are paid for - clean - and light weight as mentioned.

I just might keep the wheels. We will see. I'm getting my scheme on right now.

No.


Boost in a while, probably. Like in a year.

It's so much fun with 130hp as it sits.

All sorts of n/a upgrades too - cams, cam gears - intakes, chips and exhaust. You can have 180ish hp real fast

Oh snap. Real nice find, and it looks to be in good shape too.

I want to judge you so badly, but I can't. My 94 626 was a shitload of fun to throw around (when the wheels weren't falling off). I miss that car.

Alright so, you're gay?

I hope everyone sells their Saabs and buys other things, more for me.

I have a strange friend I can hook you up with Palmer - he has a Miata too that is tuned. He's even a parts guy at a napa.... He just bought a 2nd gen RX-7 n/a as well. But I think he's too confused to be gay. But he does have a Volvo 940 Wagon....

I don't think I've ever seen a stock Miata intake -

That looks so pointless it's retarded.... TB - MAF - FILTER not TB 3 foot pipe around engine MAF and Hot Box next to engine exhaust manifold over downpipe far away from cold air...

I am married. For the record.


Not that there is anything wrong with that.


I also have a small dog that will ride with me:

And yes, the stock intake sucks balls.

I'm going to leave it for now, but I will "fix" it soon.
