My 240sx Is Finally Going To The Beauty Parlor

The 240 is a much more attractive car. They don't make cars pretty like they used to.

My 240sx Is Finally Going To The Beauty Parlor

Anytime I buy a used car, I sit and think about how it was once somebody's brand new car. Somebody's baby.

I'm pretty sure you love this car more than the person who originally bought it. :)

Looks great, man! :thumbwink:

I like fences with patina, myself.

I've got three Miatas at my disposal, and am not driving any of them very much. :smack:

Man, if just a few of you experienced old school FAST folks would just get together... you could get the band back together, man!

My 240sx Is Finally Going To The Beauty Palor

Good job! When my Miata was painted, the paint booth we rented was dirty. Dust falling from the ceiling really buggered up my paint job! Bubbles and dust nibs all over, it was a major paint to polish all of that stuff out.

FAST - A New Hope

I've been reluctant to post this, but Jonny is out. Worried about COVID and insurance costs, and very likely just over his head with his aspirations. That's fine. So, as of right now, we're in a holding pattern until somebody picks it up. You wanna do it? Let us know. Take a step back and read This ...

89/90 Miata available

It's coming home on a trailer. It could very well be that it's just hydraulics and I could drive it home, I'm just being lazy. Word is that "the clutch failed" and the shop quoted almost $1100 to fix it.

We'll see what it all looks like tomorrow!

89/90 Miata available

Picking it up Saturday, sight unseen. They say it needs a clutch, and the pix are terrible... a little rust, though. The deal was too good to pass up. Absolute worse case, I sell the hard top, sell the car for scrap and still more than break even. Wish me luck! Oh, and Alex is interested in the car....

89/90 Miata available

Gracias! Gave them a call. They're going to send me some pictures when the car gets out of the shop. They had it towed this morning due to the clutch failing. (knowing Miatas, it's very likely the slave cylinder) A little more info if anyone's curious: It's not the mythical "cream puff" Mi...

Hmmm...

Do you know if it's a manual transmission? Any idea what kind of money they're looking for? Alex is forever looking for a fun car.

Self Isolation in the Garage - Post Your Car Projects

Inattentive is an understatement!

But, I guess you needed to paint a good portion of that car, anyway. And you got lucky... just the door. If had been the rear fender... that's not replaceable, and is extremely difficult to repair.

FAST - A New Hope

(I'm actually more of a Star Trek fan, but I couldn't resist.) Let me be the first to welcome Jonny Schneider to FAST! He has volunteered to take over the leadership role that we need. We met with him Wednesday evening, and we have confidence that with all of our help, he can do this. He comes to us...

"Freedom Factory" (formerly Bradenton Motorsports Park)

Where to begin... This is all 100% moot until some motivated soul takes over the operation of FAST. K&K's autocross requirements are the same for all who use them, but K&K doesn't send people out to check and see if you're doing things right. And, it's just as easy to not be aware of their r...
