I'm 17 and I drive the 02 Miata that my grandmother gave me. It was her car from its first mile and she was happy to give it to me when she got too old to drive. I've been autocrossing it for a year and I plan to track it soon. It's come a long way since my grandma drove it. Picture One of the first modifications (and one of the only ones I couldn't do in my driveway) was swapping the automatic transmission for a 5-speed. Picture Here's some of the modifications I've done: - Wheels/tires - Racing Beat muffler - Eibach sway bars - H&R springs - CAI - Pioneer head unit - Hard Dog Hard Core roll bar and harness bar - G-Force 6-point harness - Koyo 53mm racing radiator Picture Also I have no idea how to add pictures that aren't links and the only reason you can even see this post is because it won't let me delete it.

Yeah, I had a Grandma and all I got was cookies and a subscription to Readers Digest! No fair!

As for pics, you have to host them somewhere else (like any of the free image hosting sites) and then just use those picture URLs with the little camera icon when posting here.

Also, welcome!
