Your Projects: Have You Met Ronald the Crappy Miata?

Call this another one of those forum horse trading deals.

From the seller: 

As someone who doesn't like Miatas, I really love this crappy Miata. Life is just such that I'm staring down the barrel of watching it sit for 2+ years and I don't want to do that. I want it to be loved and driven and raced and loved more.”

And from a fly on the wall: “A crappy Miata is a wonderful thing!”

Ronald has been through quite a bit since that changing of hands back in January, including rallycross, hail and an encounter with a van. But there has been progress, too, with a mismatched fender repainted, sunset drives and a much-needed bath.

I miss this car, but it really is living the kind of life I wish I could have given it. 

This is the thread from when I owned the car. Spacecadet is doing a better job.

There's a REALLY good chance Ronald is going to go to some events you guys will be at... 

I've also got receipts so it could come to the challenge.... sooo... who knows?
