The thing looks shockingly un-modified except for the aftermarket wheels and radio. Even has the stock air box and the type L sub woofer. I don’t think I’ve ever been this excited for January to come.
After 10+ years of pining and waiting for them to become legal, I won this at auction over the weekend! Can’t wait until January when I can bring it over.
Listed my 91 Miata SE on craigslist in effort to secure funds for the Autozam. Any oppos interested in a rust free NA? I’ll give the oppo discount like I did on my FB RX7.
I decided it was time to clean my garage some, and flip around the project so that it is facing the right way to get going on the 13B installation and also be easy to back out for welding and body panel skin modifications.
Good Morning Oppo! Clean SE for your time!
The QC guy printed this for me when I first got my RX7.
I sold the FB to a commenter on here, made him wait long enough so I could get it in good working order. My intention was to be thinning the herd of cars and projects. The plan was to get a ride home from my dad after the sale. Then this happened:
The past couple years I have been competing in Tough Mudder runs. There is one this weekend in Michigan in Oxford. Anyone from here running in it? I’ll be running both days (unless my legs fall off...)
Over the weekend I drove down to Southeastern PA for a Tough Mudder run and part of my drive took me around State College PA. I re-discovered one of my favorite stretches of road along that trip, RT 144 near Bellefonte. It is a nice snaking hill climb one way and the way back it is down hill. I really enjoyed it in…
One of the companies we work with did a write-up on IMSA racing. This type of racing is quickly becoming a favorite of mine, I hope it becomes easier to view in the future.
While looking fervently for a C30 Polestar 6 MT I came across this 2015 3 sport hatch. The color is exactly what I was looking for, 6 speed, 2.0L so better mileage, cloth interior, and some sort of cool wheels added.
I’ve been looking at C30s for a while now and I think I found one that really ticks all the boxes. I’ve been mainly looking at the pre-refresh 2008 - 2010 models. But the other day I saw an ad for a 2013 Polestar and that color combo with the black wheels and the R Design interior just fell together for me. I would…
Added something I hadn’t seen yet!
Makes me miss my old Mazda 2. I’ll grab another someday.
The engine isn’t weird, but look at the front clip! I wonder if it would look good with paint?
Figure it will help me make some better panels for the RX-4 project. Should reduce welding and filler too!
Decided to cut some more out of the roof because it was not blending well at the corners. Then I mocked up more templates:
Most of the cutting is done on the old shell for now. Time to work on the metal work to blend to the hatch shape.
