      I just spent an hour going through the "you need an E30" thread (which is awesome by the way) and decided we need to have one for the other TCL darling, the Miata.

      Will you play along?

      I'll start...

      Has anyone had any experience using Seasucker racks on their Miatas? This one in particular: https://www.seasucker.com/shop/ski-rack/
      I am looking for a way to transport my snowboard this coming winter, and this seems like a pretty good option (I have a hardtop).

      I like the Miata. I don't care how gay it makes you look.

      okay fine, I'd never own one.

      As a raging homosexual, and a Miata driver, I don't know why you say gay is a bad thing?

      Here's the NA he used to have:



      a couple shots of my Miata...stock except for my wheels and tires for autocross. I don't have any pics of it with the R lip yet...





      one from the last autocross I went to



      Spec Miata I saw at Lime Rock Park. Check out the intake cooling.

      I saw it on Craigslist a while back. For the price he was asking it seemed like a steal to me. Did he get rid of it?


      Also how'd you get on Laguna Seca to take pics? I thought they only allowed the public on during Trackdays.

      Yeah, he got rid of it. For a lot lower than the CL price too. It was something ridiculous. Modded NB's are a dead market...it was really hard for him to get rid of it. For just a little bit more cash you can pick up an S2000, E36 M3, or just something way faster and nicer than a '99 Miata.

      I was actually at work; I work for Simraceway and we laser scanned Laguna Seca. They let us take our own cars onto the track to carry our equipment; usually we have rental cars since we travel, but Laguna Seca is so close that we just drove there. And I couldn't pass up the chance to get some super exclusive shots. Too bad I was working and really pressed for time, I could've gotten some amazing shots while the sun was setting!

      and to keep the thread going, here are some more.

      Momo Start seat. My interior is exactly like this except I have a Mod 78 wheel.





      The ugly Rotas that came on the car. I actually like the RB's (I used to own real Panasports), but I am NOT a fan of the polished lip and "hyper black" spokes....



      Not my photos:

      apologies if it's been covered in here before. anyone know why NA guys tend to autox with their pop ups up? Gives them a reference point to the corners of the car maybe?
