Byrdmen added a topic in MaintenanceHey Matt...In all honesty Matt, I do feel bad for you. You have put a lot of blood sweat and dollars in about the fastest car I have ridden in.
Hope this makes you feel better, could have been worse...
Yes, that is a broken wall in whats left of my Dad's Mustang motor. It also appears that the mode of failure is different than what we suspected.
Windage tray looks like a grenade went off.

Guest added a topic in Member RidesBrent Granger's MAZDASPEED MiataSome members may not know it yet, but I am now the proud owner of a 2004 MAZDASPEED Velocity Red MX-5 Miata!
I christened the car "Juno" for several reasons.
1. The month of June is my birth month, which is named after the Roman goddess Juno.
2. Tia Carerre's character, Juno Skinner, from the movie "True Lies" (Tia was already taken ).
What makes this car special? It's my second Miata, my first NB and red car, and it's very quick!
