1999 Mazda Miata

This was my 2009 Challenge car and is now my daily driver. Bought with front end damage, which I repaired with Bondo and a rattle can! Turned out much better than I would have expected. Ran it pretty much stock with the exception of used race rubber and a 75 shot of Nitrous.

Saw the car in person at The Challenge. I believe it also won Caveman class. Excellent work preparing that car with no power tools.

Thank you! I am pretty sure that we sat at the same table at the banquet. I Think that the photo of my car in the councourse judging tent was one of yours. I hope you don't mind that I used it here. My plan for the car was to try to have a competitive car using scrounging skills and not fabrication skills. (Since I am lacking in the fabrication department!) The Caveman class sort of fell into my lap, as I had plasnned to do the build before the class was proposed. It just meant that I had to do a ton of sanding and buffing by hand!
