My ride sitting at home after bringing it home for the first time, its a 2000 Special Edition, Mahogany Mica with tan leather interior, Nardi wood steering wheel & Shift knob, 15 inch alloy wheels, 6 speed tranny, Torsen limited slip differential and a Bose Audio System. (Pretty much the stock Special Edition when I started)
I'm just getting started with the customazation, mostly cosmetic to start with. I'm a ham Radio operator and the first order of business is to get the "Rig" installed. I'll be runing HF/VHF and UHF with a Yaesu FT-857D. I have a dual band UHF/VHF antenna that is on a foldover trunk mount and a HF Hi-Q-5/80RT "Screwdriver" antenna that will be hitch mounted.

Well, the Miata has definately taken on a life of its own. Mods are now becomming more performance oriented, and I've never really used the ham radio in it. Seems the more I do to this car, the more I want to do! This has got to be the most fun car I've ever owned!!

i sure could use some freebie stuff...
Nice car Larry!I'm in the process of acquiring a similar 2000 SE from IA.It is far away, but the car worth the trouble.I'm in West of Dulles A/P and hope to visit to see your mods.I plan to install some of the improvements similar to yours and would like to get some idea and experience from you if you don't mind.David
Sorry it's taken me so long to get back to you. I hardly ever check in here anymore. I'd be happy to show off my mods and help you with whatever I can. My car has been relegated to the garage for the moment. I started using a lot of oil and the compression on all cylinders was nonexistent. I've bought a used engine that will hopefully arrive this coming weekend.I'll get it installed along with the other mods I'm working on over the winter. You gen get hole of me directly by E-Mail at email@example.com
nice ride! 5*****
