    copied from my car forum cause i'm lazy-yo!


    new addition to the miata. cost a little chunk of change. but it makes the hubby happy. hmmmm.... what's going on under the hood of this miata? check it out:



    omg! the miata is more faster than the round black thing! if you see this hideous $850 miata with a turbo that cost more than the whole car- look out. here is what the whole car looks like- only now it has hood pins cause it doesn't latch right and the wheels are flat black. he and his buddy, the vw tech put it on at our boss's house's garage; which consists of a huge garage with every tool you can imagine and room for two racing trailers in the back. i'm glad nathan had some help. now i don't have to worry about dying or stuff falling apart when i drive the little miata


    why do i feel compelled to do something else to Pookie now? that stupid beetle has had so much money dumped into it in the past year or two though- so i'm done with it for a while in reality.

    You make me miss my Miata.
    I bet the upgrades are great. I looked into getting a turbo for mine, but did not feel like spending the money.
    I would like to get one again at some point. Fun car.

    Here is mine when I bought it back in 1993



    Then close to the time I sold it in 2000

    man. i wish ours looked half that clean. we've been putting off getting a paint job, so it will look like a beast for a long while unless we win the lottery or something.

    i would like a paint job on pookie the VW, too. wonder if there are ever any 2 for 1 specials?

    oh, the miata's back window is missing. it's made of glass for some reason and someone tore it out prior to us buying the car. during the turbo kit install, the passenger window got broken on the lift. the miata race cars that the big boss-man have probly don't need windows, so hopefully we can pick one up cheap. then i hope the hubby can install it.

    elgecko, your car is purty. i have a feeling you're driving something better now though.

    I wish my car was that cool.

    A dodge intrepid doesn't exactly get the same respect that a Miata does!

    I flew out to visit a friend in San Fran a couple of years ago and we drove her brand new midnight blue Miata down the coast highway to Moonstone bay and then up into Oregon. Fun car. Two weeks of top down, blasting through the twistys, pretty girl with her long black hair flying in the wind...now THAT was a vacation to remember.

    No.
    Boring practical cars.

    Some day I hope to have a convertible play car again.
