1997 Mazda Miata: 140,000 miles

January 11, 2013

1997 Mazda Miata

Even though the number 225,308 is much more impressive than 140,000, the bigger number is in kilometers. And since we live in America, we hate the metric system. Take that, easy to use and accepted worldwide system of measurement!

Anyway, our 1997 Mazda Miata has defied the odds, as well as some friendly wagers around the office, and trucked through 140k on the odometer.

At this point in its life, our Miata still sports a Rotrex supercharger kit, Fat Cat coilovers, really nice 949 Racing 6UL wheels, Hankook Ventus R-s3s and a Blackbird Fabworx six-point roll bar. It might burn a little oil, but it's still a total rip.
