Get a Datsun 510!
Omg that thing is soo sick hahaha. I'm pretty set on the idea of the e30 strictly because I can buy one relatively cheap, throw a little money into it to make it reliable, and in a couple years park it at work and make it into a project!!

Yeah but I think you need to upgrade the fuel pump...I think Cobb makes an AP for that engine.

Perfect.. From what I just researched in the last 3 seconds the sr71 swap project should only run me 8mil but the downside is the fitment/ added weight. Could pose for a challenge but I'm ready for it!

Cool I can come by and help you change the engine mount bushings if you want, it doesn't look too hard.

Sweet that would be awesome! I forgot to add the new engine mount bushings to my list of needed parts... better add another 300,000 to my budget :-\

i'd stick with a miata over an e30. I am very seriously contemplating buying a shell and swapping in a 13b from an rx7 that sitting on the floor of my friends garage right now.

My thought with the e30 is that I can DD it for now and put it to the side as a project in 2 years and re-build it at that time. I want something I can drive for the time being though... The Miata just dosen't make sense as a daily. Right now I'm still pretty dead set on the e30 but we'll see

Reviving this topic from the dead because well.... I bought a Miata a year later! I had been driving a 94' Maxima and it was just not cutting it. Sold it last week for $1700 and Picked up this un-molested 91' Miata with 61,200 original miles. Yes... It probably has less miles than a lot of you 08' Wrx owners :p

So far I'm just really going through the entire vehicle replacing everything that is worn out. Trying to get it back in tip top shape. It's not in perfect shape, but it looks pretty good! So far I have just done a few maintenance things, but the throw out bearing has a consistent chirp so I will be doing a clutch and bearings pretty soon. Also has a stumble in the first couple minutes of driving but as the engine warms up it gets better!

Anyway.. On to the pics!!!











Had a pretty nasty fuel leak that was luckily a free and easy fix :) There is an access panel behind the seats that I removed and found the leak to be coming from this hose so I swapped it with some hose I had lying around in the shop!



I will have to get some better pics tomorrow. These were mostly from the first day I got it and the car was filthy. I have been detailing the thing every day for the past week little by little.

For the future I have some plans for some suspension mods, wheel's & tires. And also wayyy down the road i'd like to install a Flyin Miata Turbo kit! Apparently this little 1.6L LOVES boost and needs no built motor to throw boost at it!

So far, this car has been a blast. Even though it only has like 95hp... The thing still feels quick because it's so light! It handles amazing too! I feel pretty comfortable taking turns wayy fasted then I used to in the 08' Rex!

Stay tuned.... there will be more updates here!

I applaud you for being able to go so far backwards and have the balls to post about it. LOL. I hate Miata's. But really, how'd do you do it?

You asking how I found the thread? I remembered posting I was thinking about getting a miata so I searched "miata" on the site search lol.

Never thought a miata could be so much fun... but damn it's a fun little car. Have you ever driven one? Curious why you hate them haha

I've never driven one. My friend drives his mom's around loves it. I think my dislike for them came when I was working in San Diego and this prissy ass architect who reminded me more of a woman than a man drove his around with the top down all the time. I decided he was a fag, and his car was too. LOL. Not very fair way to judge, but i'm a quirky dude.

Hahahaha fair enough! I drop the top if it's nice but definitely feel like a tool! I think I will feel like less of a tool once its dropped and has some nice offset wheels and a rollbar. Looks badass that way with the top down haha
