Well, it's her car. She wanted to be involved in the whole process. She's been to the yards with me almost every time I go. She's the one that found my 88 IROC convertible for me. I'm a VERY lucky man.

Great story, welcome to the forum.

Glad to see you saved her and that your wife was ok.

My only real suggestion is that STYLE bar, I would replace it with a real bar or just get rid of it all together.

Google "miata mouse trap" if you're confused at my caution.

Best of luck

She wasn't hurt in the wreck, just really pissed off at the other woman that hit her.

I wanted to put a real bar in it but there was no arguing with her. She wanted the style bar that's in it.

Glad you like the car. New color looks good! I hope you guys aren't bringing back the BMW emblem right?

NO WAY! Why would I want to look like a douche bag after putting all that work into the car?

If you'll notice there are no emblems at all anywhere on the car. The wife and I both are big fans of de-badging all of our vehicles.

It wasn't ours. We're keeping it. When the wife upgrades to a newer Miata I'm probably going to swap the boosted LT1 from my IROC convertible into it...just so I can swap a boosted LSX into the IROC.
