My first miata was an 02 SE (Titanium) that we bought salvage title on ebay for $9995.  It had 4301 miles on it.  My wife and I flew to Los Angeles and drove it back to Little Rock, AR.  I have been hooked ever since.  I sold the car 2 years later to buy my MSM.  Here is what it looked like when I sold it, and I sold it for $9995 with many happy miles on it!

My first car was a 99 sunlight silver miata, which I LOVED and unfortunately someone felt like taking that love from me by pulling in front of me.  About 6 months later (February 06) I got my mazdaspeed from a Lexus dealer in Richmond, VA.  Long drive to buy a car, but it was well worth it.  The 3 hour drive back was awesome, haha.  I'm looking to keep my MSM "JDM" style.  And most of my parts I'm going to have imported from Japan.  But that's basically me. Here is a pic of my old NB, then some of the MSM.

WoW Wallace I look like your S2000 style face and those rims! The rims set a machine look that goes with your tit gray.

me???

There still is quite a few bits and pieces of my hide all over this site.

Should I stand? I think that is proper. okay. My name is Don and I am a recovering, sorry, wrong forum thread for I still reside in the secret section.

Friends catch my attention by stating the word Don. For years I thought people where simply expressing some sort of body pain.

I live and enjoy life to the fullest in the Great Land of Alaska. I am the owner/operator of the award winning radika and founder/president of team radika. radika's photo gallery is in need of updating for I do have some SWEET shots taken over this short Summertime and will labor to update soon. I have been a busy little camper enjoying radika's first Summer in Alaska. It has been swell! But as Summer draws to a finish I am looking forward to the Hard-top and ice studs in place once again.

I personally keep radika clean, shining and sharp! Which I am about off to do after radika's  last adventure taking the NAV and myself past Mount McKinley far into the interior of Alaska. I got it down to an art. radika only takes about a half an hour to restore her to showing style. Of course a complete detail does require a bit more time.

The crew at mazda-speed.com is the greatest for their good taste in cars and jus' for being real good people!

Later. oh the attached shot was taken last Saturday in Hatcher Pass.

Hi, my name is Brian and I am a miataholic.   :P

My first miata was a 10th Anniversary Edition, purchased in February 2004.  It was hit by a hurricane, an old man, and an idiot in an IS300 during 2004.  When I got it back from the body shop the last time, I went directly to the dealer and purchased my MSM.  I then sold the 10 AE.

My 10ae and MSM.

My MSM at the autox.

My first Miata was an 04 Velocity Red MSM. It was my first Miata after my 10AE RX-7. My friend has a '96 and I liked it, so to replace the 7, I got the MSM. I would've gotten an older model, but I couldn't resist. The MSM felt just like the RX-7 when I got in and test drove it, down to the color of the gauge and cd player lights.

My RX-7:
I seem to have lost all my pictures of it :\ I guess they're not in my album anymore either... D:

The MSM:

My favorite pic of it is this, however:

Mods: FM Full Intake Kit (GFB BOV, MBC, Intake, TB Pipe), Faze Boost Gauge.

I guess I didn't forget anything.

This is my first Miata.

I'd never thought I'd ever own one of these things. First time I drove a Mazdaspeed Miata was also the second time ever driving a Miata period. I thought them to be cute little quirkmobiles but never gave them much more attention to that until I got into autocrossing and started seeing them kick mucho ass. Needless to say I was curious. Then came my first Mazda Rev-it-up challenge. I drove a VR MSM around their little "not over 30 mph" course and I admit I kinda liked it.
Well, about a year later and I'm in my local Ford store about to buy a cherry yellow 2004 Mustang Mach 1. I loved the damn thing and just HAD to have it. Anyhow, my salesman, if you can believe this, tells me I need to look into this "deal" he just got on a new Mazdaspeed Miata. "7 grand off sticker!" he says, and shows me his new ride ( he's since sold it ). Well, I took the bait. He lost the sale this time, but you can bet anyone who would rather see me get a smokin' deal than make him money is a good salesperson to know, I've since had my dad buy a new truck from him and I call him first when anyone else in my family thinks of a new vehicle, whether they're in this state or not!
Anyhow, back to the car....I was hooked. I fell in love with the bugger from the drive home. Since then, I've learned to love most of it and hate others, which is to be expected. I don't see this car as a car one should drive 40 miles per day 5-6 days a week, especially in South Texas heat. Luckily, that little snail keeps me entertained just enough to tolerate it. :bannana:

I'm sure I'll move on to other things, but I'll confess I'll never forget this little car and fun I've had with it. Mazda built one hell of a car here.

Here is a quick picture of my new 2004 Ti Grey Mazdaspeed, purchased 6/9/2007 with 4700 miles. Production #1507.

This is my first convertible sports car, it was a choice between this and a 2000 BMW Z3 with 70k miles. I think I made the right choice! The wife was kind enough to let me trade the POS Chevy Colorado pick-up for the Mazdaspeed. I look forward to many years with this baby and hopefully will be able to add some mods, not that it needs much more than stock!
