    Thread: The "you need a Miata" thread

    1. 09-05-2011 09:32 PM #1
      I just spent an hour going through the "you need an E30" thread (which is awesome by the way) and decided we need to have one for the other TCL darling, the Miata.

      Will you play along?

      I'll start...

      I like the Miata. I don't care how gay it makes you look.

      okay fine, I'd never own one.

      I've got a 2011 Sport 5MT w/ Conv pack black/ black on hold right now... I cannot make up my mind if I actually want one. I do, but I am trying to talk myself out of it.

      I have a Miata. So for me this is more of a "you need these parts" thread.

      I saw it on Craigslist a while back. For the price he was asking it seemed like a steal to me. Did he get rid of it?


      Also how'd you get on Laguna Seca to take pics? I thought they only allowed the public on during Trackdays.

      Can't get rid of our plate, we're close enough to the back of the pack that it's still a real possibility that we'll be DFL next time we run.

      one crappy pic of mine. mild STS prep at this point, plan to do more work over the winter and go hard next season. evolution school this saturday, i hope the weather holds out!

      if you've never had the pleasure of driving one, try to get some seat time. such an awesome and rewarding car to drive.
