Good for you! dead hookers always give the best traction. 100 lbs of dead hooker equals 150 lbs of lead.

Planning gunmetal steelies, two long-range driving lights mounted above the grille, and nothing else. Couldn't help but to photoshop it.

If it had one driving light instead of two; it would remind me [more] of my first car, a bullet-nose Studebaker.

So, leaning toward the Miata over the Festiva? I found this in my Imgur stash:

I wish there were a pre-smog miata. Those are rad cars.

I had a pre-miata mazda, a 72 rx2. I bought it for $100 with 60k miles and I rebuilt the rotory engine. 16 mpg was typical 18 was good. It would rev so much there was an alarm on it. Unfortunately I put the minimum clearances in the side seals and one cracked after I over revved it to 9000 rpm. To get crazy hp, all you have to do is grind the ports bigger.

Guess which one is the rotory:

4 rotor engine 1991 Le mans winner, since rotary engine band from racing :

Right now I'm considering an EF HB (4spd) as well. Not sure what was different on the HB or when the VX came into existence but it wouldn't be a bad car.

But I really, really want a Miata.

Sir, If you want a miata then by all means get one. There is no time like the present. I was just looking at one owned by a friend this past week. Had big tires heavy springs and sway bars. Basically a gocart with plates.

My dad bought me an Austin Healy Sprite in 1969. I remember passing folks on entrance ramps with it. All the while I was using a 1/4th the fuel of the average v8.

Later on I had a 350 CI Fiero. It looked stock but rumbled.
