No words are good enough for this…
Yep, so I picked up a new car, and she’s got stickers.
The Roadster has been frustrating the hell out of me lately. When I picked up the car, I knew that she wasn’t perfect, but I had no idea how little she had been taken care of before I bought her. Now I spend alot of my time fixing several things that the previous owner took less than perfect care off.
I haven’t been able to enjoy the car once this year at the local autocrosses, without something happening to her.
Hey there guys,
Several of you have been asking about the cars the writers of the StartingGrid use to get around. I decided to start first and do a short feature on my own daily driver, a 1993 first-generation Mazda Miata.
I love this car. I call it the “Roadster”, partly as homage to the Eunos Roadster, and partly because how she makes me feel when I’m driving her. Driving the Roadster is a real tactile experience, and as a driver that’s something that I require out of the machines that I own.
Honestly, I have no idea what’s wrong with me, but I’ve been having this urge to find pictures of slammed Roadsters! I know that the suspension geometry is effed, and that the roll centers are borked, but I just don’t seem to care.
We’ve just got to be lucky that I don’t have the cash to randomly do this to my Miata…yet. (I kid, kinda…)
I was doing some surfing of the intertron, and I stumbled onto a video of a tuned Mazda Roadster doing battle with a R34 Skyline at (insert Japanese track name here). From what I could find out via Google translator, the Roadster is generating about 290bhp, and is doing the business!
I haven’t found any pictures of the car yet, but check out how it holds off the Skyline. Also, the noise! (+10 points of Mazda goodness). I love crazy tuned Roadsters like this one.
