    Hello from Duluth, Minnesota!

    Hi! As title states I'm from Minnesota. Picked up '92 from a friend/customer. Just turned over 90k, has no rust, lowered on H&R Springs, Konig wheels, and for some reason a heat-soaking pod filter. I've got a full Prothane kit waiting to be put on, and that's about it for now.







    Just a standard red Miata. But of course, she's a fantastic drive.

    Thanks all. It appears the admin has a sense of humor. lol It's very clean overall, there are some paint chips, but finding a car without rust of this age in Minnesota is difficult at best. I think I paid a little too much for it, $4k, but given it was well-maintained, no rust, good paint, hard top, and I knew the guy personally, I'd say a good investment, or I'm just lying to myself.

    I think I've found the route that I want the build to follow, so we'll see how she goes.

    Start you a build thread. If nothing else you have documentation on oil changes and other maintenance until you start the walk on the path you chose.

    Peace Fellow Nut!

    lol I've come to the conclusion that the red roadster is the common bland roadster.
