A deep down whole heartedly Miata lover. Bought my special edition 2005 Lava Orange Mazdaspeed Miata (774 of 1428).
After several years wanting a Miata, the... Show more summer of 2011 was when I finally purchased it with little less than 28K miles for a great deal. Not knowing too much about them, I quickly realized I got my hands in this jewel.
Sold the Lava Orange in September 2013 and ended up bying another 2005, gray this time. Upgrades include: BEGI Speedy 1 Kit (Cold Air Intake, Throttle Body Inlet Tube and Forged Bypass Valve), ECU reflashed, and 949Racing 15X8" 6UL wheels.
