I probably shouldn't of, but I did. I just drove to Austin to pick up an evolution orange 2000 Miata roller. Bought it from calteg here on GRM This Juan

Plans: A car I can drive daily (with AC) and for I and Mrs Yupididit to autocross when we can. 

Obviously it needs some things:

  • Engine and accessories
  • Radiator
  • Exhaust 
  • Tail lights
  • Top (Black please) 
  • Drivers seat
  •  New hood and front bumper

I'll try to get it running before the end of the year. Would-be faster BUT new house plus promises I made the lady first lol. Also, still have to slide the 4.2 Cayman S into our life. I could wax that idea and call Sir Keith devil

I miss my 3 car garage.

Yes it is. A very rare one actually. Called Evolution Orange. One of 646 sold in the US

 

Glad you picked it up. I liked the idea of doing something for a track rat but need that like a hole in my head right now. :)

Had no idea it was that rare of a color. 

Anyone have any leads on a 1.8?

Geez, a $700 southern roller......I could combine that with my $1000 supercharged '99,which isn't rust free, and have a nice little car for years to come. Good luck with the build.
