Funding an Education With a Rotary Miata

Update by Ed Higginbotham to the Mazda Rotary Miata project car
Jun 21, 2016

We’re headed to North Carolina tomorrow morning. Why? To build a car, of course. Mike Smith, better known as “Curmudgeon” on our online forum, passed away unexpectedly after battling cancer.

And he left behind a radical, unfinished project: A turbocharged, rotary-powered Mazda Miata, originally intended to take on hillclimbs. He also left behind an only daughter, Carly, who plans attend Clemson University. We’re headed up to his garage to turn his dream into a reality, with the eventual goal of auctioning off the car to fund Carly’s education.
