on april 24th of 2006 i purchased my 1995 mazda miata as a project car. It is black on black with leater, power steering, AC, premium stereo, alloy wheels, power windows, cruise control and the torsen limited slip differential.
here are a few pictures of the car the day i picked it up.
this is me driving home in my maxima following my miata (driven by salesman) back to my apartment
a brief history of the car:
according to the carfax report this car only had one owner and it happened to be a lady. it was traded in at an audi dealership which was then sold to a used car dealership where i picked it up for 1,100 under the asking price but still 900 over budget. The car was in dire need of some TLC. Fortunately the car is fairly easy to work on so servicing it was not a horrid experience. The car felt very solid when i drove it until the clutch slave cylinder gave out later in the eavening.
so far since the day i got the car i've got parts to replace the clutch master cylinder and rebuild the clutch slave cylinder, water pump, timing belt, crank oil seal, cam sensor seal, cam oil seal, valve cover seal, upper and lower radiator hose, power antenna mast, changed all fluids, wiper blades and lower coolant hose for the heater.
