Looks like a good project car. What are your plans for it?

How's the engine?
The engine needs a valve job, it smokes at high RPMs, but it DOES have 133k miles on it so I guess that kind of thing is expected. As long as it runs I am happy, I'll start rebuilding a new long block this winter but I am in no rush.

I want to built a custom turbo kit like my friend did in his Miata:

But that is going to wait till I finish up my shop and work area (I'm a college student so the money isn't exactly pouring in) and I'll get some new tools to replace my old hand-me-downs. This summer I plan on getting my SCCA license so I can offically call my Miata a race car. :shock:

Looks like it has potential. I have high expectations for that car.
It's already given me a new scar on my knuckle. I am still walking the line of money spent on Miata or MSP.. It's a tough call because the MSP is my baby even though it's looking pretty dirty in those pictures.

I don't know if I told the whole story here, but that Miata only cost me $1700. :)

And it looks it.... pretty rough, but with some time and money it'll be nice again.
That steering wheel looks like a dog chewed on it!! :lol:

You pick at scabs too, don't ya?

Back when my wife was a kid, her family went to a drive-through zoo. There was a sign at the monkey cage not to drive through convertibles or cars with vinyl tops. Somebody ignored the sign. The monkeys peeled the vinyl top off the car!
