Yes that one. I really want it and I need it actually. My car has caught wind of my plan and is taking a crap on me. I've been talking to a guy from Ideal Autos and I might just bite it and finance it. I mean 6000 bucks isnt much at all.

Just make sure you knock out the timing belt asap. And you could pick up new front seats no problem.

Unecessary shift knob. Instead paint a devil by your radio.

I'm with Brenton on that one lol.

Anyone know of a good place to get a headgasket done at? I don't trust myself doing it, plus I'd like to have the motor inspected anyway. I might have to keep the Miata and it'd be lighter on the wallet to just pay for the repairs this time around.

Interesting. Well I want a shift knob that isn't stock. I saw a Mustang with a Huge Cobra shift knob and I don't know how he drove like that.

It'd be awesome if you could check it out. Tomorrow I'm free all day and will home if you can give an approximate time, that is if you're in the area. We've got more tools and garage stuff since you've last been over!
