    Proof Photo Posted A stablemate for the Mustang (Miata content inside)

    Yep, I had somewhat of an impulse buy.



    A friend mentioned he was picking this up a few weeks ago, but for the right price he'd be willing to sell it. That right price was an incredibly good deal so I decided to jump on it.

    Big thanks to jibduh for helping me pick it up and bring it back to my apartment.



    Made it back!



    For 130k miles, it is a beautifully clean engine.

    And some free literature in the trunk



    Now for some details. Its a 1992 NA. Mariner Blue. 130k miles. Only option it has is AC. The previous owner put on Flyin' Miata springs and 5way Tokico shocks on all four corners, FM shock mounts on the back, FM sway bars front and back, and a Hard Dog roll bar. From what I can tell its in absolutely excellent condition.

    The only thing I know of that needs work is the linkages that connect the popup motors to the popup housing (you can see it in the first pic). The drivers side sticks up a bit too much, which is a simple adjustment. The passenger side needs the linkage replaced which is a 5 minute job, and I have the replacement in the car.

    I'll get more pictures later on a day with better light.

      Awesome! Good luck with it. Love that it came pre-caged. What sort of plans do you have for it, other than "high performance?"

          My plans for now are to keep it as is and start taking it to track days and autocrosses to get a better understanding of car control. Once I get more comfortable, I'll start looking into other mods.

            Speaking of Autox, the Detroit SCCA events start in May. I'm going to be going to the "Starting line/evo school" since it's my first time. For ~$400, you instruction, scca membership and a helmet. More info here.

              Now get yourself that yellow Volvo and you'll be on your way to a packet of Starbursts.

                    I was thinking M&Ms.

                          How cheap was it if you don't mind me asking... You called it "an impulse buy."

                                  I'm not too sure that's what that decal was supposed to go on

                                    I love that color AND it came with a rollbar?!

                                    I hate you so much right now.

                                    Very nice!

                                      I did a 300 mile drive to Pittsburgh yesterday. Naturally I had my full tookit in my trunk, and I've been keeping the stickers in the top drawer waiting for the first nice day out. The Mustang is getting her treatment on Monday.

                                      On a different note. Hooray coolant leak developed after that 300 mile drive
