Hey everyone, my name's Russell, I'm from Orlando, and 4 days ago I picked up my first Japanese car, a 1990 Miata Turbo. I traded the guy for my beloved BMW 540i/6, and, to say the least, I'm in LOVE with this car and with the amount of money it's going to put back into my wallet. Bmw's, no matter how much fun they are, are costly. I've got a 1981 BMW 320i as a project, it's a work in progress....

without further adieu, here's some shots of my new baby. These are from the previous owner, I'll do a photoshoot soon enough, and get some better ones, but these'll at least let you see her:











and here's the car I traded for the miata:


and finally, here's the project:


I know NOTHING about jap cars, so expect a lot of stupid questions from me, I apologize ahead of time for that. Thanks all!!!

I guess tonight I am buying ORLANDOROADSTER.com..

What the Internet needs is more Miata forums.

that would be cool, the Orlando crowd needs a forum for sure!!! It would be much easier to do group runs with them to the Gap, and Rspeed Open house if they had their own forum.

I am buying the domain tonight, PM me or send me a message on AIM. I have experience setting up forums, won't be a problem at all.

Nice ride. I am a former Porsche owner, and again, great cars, great upkeep. However, I think the Miata is a better driver's car. You really don't have to worry about the rear end stepping out as much. Welcome to the forum and congrats....
