So, got the red Miata about 6 months ago and really haven't done much of anything to it, but with me getting rid of the Protege5 and in my new car, 06 Civic Ex I am needing something that gives a nice little fun factor when cruising in the mountains or going out to the track...

Red Miata: Purchased for $2300
Green/Red/Orange Miata: Purchased for $700

The red one is the DD for the GF and the green one is going to be my new project car much like the Protege5 was...

Hopefully I will do a better job posting updates in this thread then I did in the other, but I highly doubt this car will get anywhere near as modded as the Protege5 ever did...

I will definitely get some better pics as it goes along...

Sorry to hear you are getting rid of your P5.
And yes...it seems everyone gets a Miata and the P5 gets tossed (I am a founding member!) lol.

Sadly my Miata will be exchanging hands with a friend in the next few months. Its been a fun car & with the addition of a kid (due in May)...I gotta pay some bills off. We could keep it, especially since we have plenty of room with our current cars...but priorities are priorities.
But have no fear! The wife has already approved another project. Either a used RX-8 or Miata in the future. It will be an NB or NC though.

Good luck with builds!

If I could get my cameras to work I would have some updates...currently have:

Red Miata:
3" Shift Extender
Blue 2 Pool Ball
Sparco Hub w/ Sparco Fighter 5 Steering Wheel
Tokico Illuminas 8-Way Adjustable w/ Coil Sleeves
Hard Dog Double Diagonal Roll Bar
Hella Dual Supertones
Red Leather S2000 Seats

Green One:

Still Stripping, have it completely down to the firewall, no dash, just steering column and wiring harness...has about 4 or 5 nickel sized rust holes in the bottom, but we are just going to cut around them and tack in some plates to cover it up...next up going to be pulling the rest of the AC system out and then remove the power steering system...
