  1. Wow I’m in love. I wish I had the garage to work on one myself, but I’d definitely pay serious money right now for a turn-key example. Wish this one was for sale, its perfect!

  2. After all these years its finally done , a V6 in the Miata .
    Why Mazda hasnt had the balls enough to do it is beyond me . With the lightweight of the body it should fly down the road .
    Owning a Miata is like owning a go cart , always wanting more speed and power .
    Beautiful car all the way around , love the targa top.
    Great job.
    Now lets mass produce that great car to the general public and i will surely trade mine in for something better and faster . Hail the V6 !!!!!
