1997 Mazda MX-5 Miata: Aftermarket Is Not MySpace for Cars After All
February 28, 2011
The other day I saw spinners (to see what I'm talking about here's a video of 20-inch spinners on a Blazer) on a lowered, purple Impala. Another time a rear spoiler that looked similar to this one on a Civic. It's because of customizations like these that I had previously disliked aftermarket enhancements. Aftermarket stuff seemed to just give leave to car owners to treat their rides like a MySpace page. Chaotic mess with no rhyme or reason.
But the Project 1997 Mazda MX-5 Miata opened my eyes to the fact that aftermarket could actually be used to improve a car's looks and performance (wuuut?), when you know what you're doing that is.
