      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.

      Yeah, he got rid of it. For a lot lower than the CL price too. It was something ridiculous. Modded NB's are a dead market...it was really hard for him to get rid of it. For just a little bit more cash you can pick up an S2000, E36 M3, or just something way faster and nicer than a '99 Miata.

      I was actually at work; I work for Simraceway and we laser scanned Laguna Seca. They let us take our own cars onto the track to carry our equipment; usually we have rental cars since we travel, but Laguna Seca is so close that we just drove there. And I couldn't pass up the chance to get some super exclusive shots. Too bad I was working and really pressed for time, I could've gotten some amazing shots while the sun was setting!

      and to keep the thread going, here are some more.

      Momo Start seat. My interior is exactly like this except I have a Mod 78 wheel.





      The ugly Rotas that came on the car. I actually like the RB's (I used to own real Panasports), but I am NOT a fan of the polished lip and "hyper black" spokes....



      Not my photos:
