    Cool **The Completely Unanticipated Hammerhead Build(s) Thread**

    The Phatness is a good friend of mine (for many years now - and local) and has told me that I need to start a build thread. Honestly, I'm too busy [SIC 'lazy'] to document all the crap I buy and stuff I've done to my cars, but after a short discussion with my daughter about how many Miatas I have owned (8), I thought maybe I should start. I've been on a parts buying frenzy of late and Phat and others here on MR.net have been helpful my search. I have 3 Miatas at present - 2 (93LEs) for me and 1 (90 Crystal White) for my son, which we are building together.

    My goal is to have one 'mildly' wild 93LE and one vintage one. So, once I get the new-fangled FLICKR figured out, I'll start to post pictures and add to the thread. In the meantime, here's a typical day in my driveway:

    Try using Imgur. Far easier than FLCK-thing, imo.

    Build seems exciting though. Once you get reasonably sized photos I bet things will be even better.

    The best build thread will be that of you and your son. When my two boys get older I hope to do the same with them.

    I've sold some in the past and this is what I have left over (except for the one on the MS D-cut wheel:


    I've never had a black MS button, but I just bought another MS D-cut wheel that included one. I'm pretty excited about finally getting it!

    now that I brought the car back home, my son who is now 12 years old is eager for a drive in the miata. Your best build will be with your son, can't wait to see what you have in mind with his miata.
