not everyone has the time and energy to be retarded.
I really am beginning to dislike the drifting scene. I've been running into so many of these hippie *** "drift" crowd sorts. "Awe man its like ya know all about the lifestyle maaan like just drift dude it's jdm." They always take nice cars and ruin them.

Not to say I don't like drifting etc... Cause I do. But I like meeting other miata enthusiasts and having conversations about car specs and track times etc. Without being the first sentence out of their mouth, awe well I just welded the dif and slammed it so I can drift.

yeah I'm not in for it. I myself am building to do autocross in the 94-97 NA class. i'm eh-null about the cleanliness of my miata but if i could find another s-chassis for close to nothing I'd drift it to ---- too. I mean if its a spare junker that the TS doesn't give a care about in the world then why the hell not? it was just a suggestion. the reason why i dont like doing it is coz its an impractical route for cars but extra no ***** given car presents itself to you its an option.

back on topic though, if you dont want it. throw it on craigslist and see what you get. ask about 1000 more than its worth, wait for some stupid kid to pay you for it.

I got the craziest call today.... guy wants the trans and both subframes with suspension to graft it under his.....

wait for it......
SAAB 99 body! He has a bridge ported 12a rotary to put in it. He only wants to spend $500 and wont need the body ect. I am going to keep the trunk lid, front and rear bumpers, doors with power windows, console, radio bezel, hood, headlights, and other various bits. He just needs a running driving platform until he swaps the engines. If he shows up at the house as promised with the deposit, I start stripping the car.

I second this. I drive a beat, POS daily Miata that's rattle can white. I never thought I'd appreciate this, but its liberating to park next to people, know you're getting a door ding, and genuinely not care. Sure, it will soon have ASTs, 6-speed, 3.63, MS2, and a VVT swap, but no one will ever know and I can drive through another hail storm and not care.

I got a buyer for the car today. He wants the drivetrain and suspension to slide it under his Saab 99. Best thing is I get to strip the good body panels and interior. As long as the car runs and drives he is good. I have to remove the rugs and passenger door in the morning and then it's gone.
Thanks for the replies.
