1994 Mazda Miata: Table Scraps

August 09, 2010


You know why I got our Project Miata this weekend? Simple. Nobody else wanted it.

But for a select few, most of the staff doesn't want to spend a weekend driving around in a quivering, mildly busted up project car. Me? Well, I kinda like it. As fun as the finished project will be, it makes it so much more interesting to watch and drive the car as it makes its progression from beater to track star. You get to see how each new part and upgrade affects the performance and the character of the car - assuming you don't drop a suitcase full of money and have it all done at once. Part by part and piece by piece, you see the car change and develop.

I'm getting to know the car pretty well at this stage and I'm sure that will only help me enjoy the car more throughly after it's done - assuming everyone will pass it up and let me drive it again.
