1991 Mazda Miata “Modified”

What do we have here? A 1991 Miata with some… modifications.  I mean, who doesn’t love the Mazda Miata? It’s a low-cost, lightweight, RWD reliable Japanese sports convertible. That’s a great combination of adjectives right there, and it led Mazda to great sales success when it first launched. Mazda STILL makes the Miata, almost 30 years later. If anyone ever asks you what car they should buy, no matter what their criteria is, the answer is always Miata.

So the answer is Miata, and the answer to this owner was to pimp out his Miata and make it “Euro Spec” – as the badge indicates. I’m not sure the answer IS Miata in this case. This Miata looks like an early still-in-training attempt from Xzibit and the “Pimp my Ride” crew. I mean, the wheel style and fitment are OK but the wing looks like it was installed upside down?! There are definitely some questionable modifications performed on this Miata.   However, I always respect people’s vehicle modification choices, even if I don’t agree with them.

Also, Merry Christmas to everyone. Enjoy your time with family and friends.  And if you don’t celebrate Christmas, than happy holidays for whatever you celebrate.

Cheers

2014 Mitsubishi Evo X

The quick “hyper-car” from Mitsubishi is an all out tuners dream.  Turbocharged four-cylinder with AWD and tons of aftermarket support.  Loud, fast and abrupt are good descriptors for the AWD Evo X.  Enjoy this tastefully modified example. Considering this car is no longer produced in the U.S. , I think the Evo X will become a collectors car 2 decades from now.

A little Paul Walker quote thrown in on the rear.
