Silinc3r's 90 Miata Lil Update 1/30

Post by SILINC3R » Sun Jul 07, 2013 7:52 am

So, picked up this little red car why I was in E-City, NC for a tech school. Passed a small local dealership that had a nice reconditioned Subaru Gl with high/low and a manual. Called the next day to see how much he wanted and he said 3. well that was a little more than I wanted to pay but it was worth it for sure. He also had this Miata there to so I asked how much for that one and he said 3 also. Ended up out the door 2,993. Pretty good deal for these cars. A little high on the mileage but no rust and no dents. Also has the hardtop and was resprayed. These cars get made fun of a lot but they are RWD/5spd/convert/can be boosted and have full aftermarket support.

Nice! One of my brothers has a mostly-track miata. With some stickier tires and suspension work they can be a lot of fun, even with stock power. Just be sure to tint the windows real dark if you plan to drive it on the street.

I see slammed miatas a lot lately and they look like a blast to drive. And probably cheap too if you stay out of the engine bay.

Got new gauges installed on the Miata from Adam @ revlimiter. Highly recommended if you have a Miata. It makes looking at the dash exciting and not boring.
Also added a newer radio with blue tooth and DVD. Some old VDO gauges to give it an old school vibe.

Added a rear trunk spoiler and rear lip. Other than that just a great DD.

I like the Crown Royal. A necessary mod to any vehicle owned by a discerning individual! :wink:

updated photos. Unfortunately I had some drunk ass kid side swipe the car on the driver side so she isn't one of the nicest Miata around anymore :(
