I've had this car since 1997 when my dad and I drug it out of a livestock feed company warehouse. The previous owner had hidden it from her husband so he couldn't get it in their divorce. It had been sitting for about a decade before we got it. It's an ORIGINAL PAINT LS edition car. My dad and I now campaign this car in C Street Prepared and it has been pretty competitive. We've kept all the original parts because of the car's rarity but the Mods include...

Camber Plates, Strut Brace, Racing beat intake, Mikuni Side Draft Carb, Racing beat header, Coil over front susp., Tokiko shocks & struts, Revolution Wheels, Hoosier 225/50 13 A6's, LSD rear w/discs, Autopower roll bar, MSD 6AL ignition, Flowmaster muffler, Holly fuel pump,

Future plans are up in the air but the Miatas are getting hard to beat in CSP so it may be time to restore it back to original and enjoy it on the street.

Nice car. I am looking forward to picking up my fourth (or fifth?) first gen. It will be my first SA and is a 79 Spark Yellow model.
