Just recently discovered these forums, and thought I would introduce myself. My name is Adam, and I live in Charlotte, NC. Pretty much a on again/off again student at UNC Charlotte, but I'm in for the long haul now. I'm not really new to Miatas; this current car is my 3rd. I'm an active member on VWVortex (yeah.. another "old" VW guy) and the GRM boards. I never was too big a fan of the Miata.net forums, so finding this site is pretty exciting. Anyhow.. since no one came here to read this, onto the pictures!

My current Miata; '95 R-package.





Currently has just a bunch of bolt ons; original Bilsteins, Eibach springs, Eibach sway bars, Borla cat-back, crappy intake, SS brake lines, a couple different sets of Carbotech pads, and the safety equipment. Nothing too fancy for now, but I'm changing the exhaust out for a Bosal Spec Miata unit (had it on my old car and loved it) plus a header, re-valving the rear Bilsteins, and getting a new alignment. Should all be ready for Full Course VIR in February.
Oh.. and it does usually have a matching passenger seat. It's out because I'm not very pleased with the Wedge Engineering brackets I had made, and am trying to come up with a better solution.
The Miata shares the garage with the 16v GTi in the background, and a Flash silver '88 16v Scirocco that doesn't run yet.

My old car was an original paint '92; bought it stock with 248k miles on it! I swapped a '96 1.8L in with a lightweight flywheel, Monsterflow intake, and Spec Miata mufflered cat-back. Suspension was comprised of AGX's+GC's, and a couple chassis braces. Awesome car that I had very little money in total, and did very well at both auto-x's and track events. Sold it to a young person in Greensboro with 296k on the chassis, and it's still active (painted 350z Pewter/silver now.)




My 2nd Miata was a silver '91 that was bought just to clean/fix and re-sell. Didn't have it very long, but it was a decent enough car.

Anyhow, thats about it!

Welcome aboard Adam! Your car looks sweet as hell. I'm an old VW nut myself. Be sure to park pictures of your car and a list of modifications in the Garage section of the forum.

Thanks guys. The white car has a Hard Dog bolt-in cage (bought it used.. but not "used" :lol: ). The silver car had a custom bar built to mimic the HD Hardcore double diagonal. The bar was built by Chris Schimmel of Competition Cages.

Correct; they're 15x7 et27 K1's. They might be for sale shortly.. haven't decided yet.

I'd definitely be up for a GTG. I've seen a few other Miata guy's around lately, but somehow, no one ever notices me. I guess a white caged Miata doesn't stand out too much, hahaha.

Name a time and place!

No-one notices you???? BULL! I've seen you quite a few times, but I can't ever seem to catch your eye to wave or flip my headlights. I think you may have noticed me once, I was coming out of the Petro express where you were taking a left onto Mallard Creek from Tryon/49. I have the black NA with reddish-orange spraybombed wheels. I'm also an on-and-off UNCC student, live off of mary alexander.
