Re: Official PDX Lounge

I dunno, I think billies with reasonable spring rates would ride really nice and still perform well. My dad was totally happy with the ride on my FCM billie MSM so this can't be too much worse... can it? Dunno. I'll ride in Alex's car before he sells the shocks and decide then.

As for MRLS, I believe this year we have:

Aidan, drives the coast route and track day only saturday. camp at track.
James, not sure which route, not sure which track days, camp at track.
Me, down i-5 with the trailer, probably just one track day, camp at track.
Richard said he was coming. Probably too majestic to camp at track but maybe he'll join us.

Join us, Alex!

Re: Official PDX Lounge

The big problem with MATG is 40 hours each way... only 14 for MRLS. Sure either one would likely take considerably longer while making a trip out of it but that's quite a ride...

If MATG happens I have friends and family in MO so that's a guaranteed stop. Another guy I used to work with is an Elvis fanatic and does something in the industry so Memphis might be another stop. I've also never visited my wife's uncle just outside of Boulder so I may consider that route. Her cousin is an animal so I guarantee madness. Decisions...

Dunno. Ed bombs down while towing. I'll be driving and camping. James is supposed to be camping too.

MATG is in the cards this year depending on finances.

I've been talking MRLS or MATG. MRLS seems like a much wiser decision. Track time and a LOT closer...

How big is the Portland caravan these days?

I had a montego. I bought it because it was cheap. Never again.

I'll sell you some budget billies when I pull the trigger on xidas or some such.

Re: Official PDX Lounge

lol Alex. I've always loved Montego. I know lotsa people hate it but it works for me, on NA's and FD's both.

Ryan, yes that's the plan. We have some work to do:
-rollbar
-new radiator for reliability
-freshen brakes
-some sort of modified suspension. Budget billies or budget coils. Something adjustable would be nice. Research commences when money becomes more available.

I'll also put on a set of old rivals that should work just fine for him.

Dave, thanks for that! I didn't know the name of the color. I do like it a lot.

Cool Ed, very nice of you to scoop that up for your dad. Are you saying he's going to drive it at MRLS next year?

Montego is the worst color miata. Gross.

Passable on FDs.

Best part of working at dealerships is having first dibs on cars.

Re: Official PDX Lounge

Thanks guys! I do like it. Definitely my favorite NA wheels, and I do like the color almost as much as Montego.

Removed those awful seat covers and the seats aren't bad at all. One tear on the driver side but the tape makes it look worse. I think i'm going to just get these repaired, at least for now.

Re: Official PDX Lounge

Nah, too nice for that really. That one James found on craigslist the other day would have been much better for that.

This one is for my dad. I'll be fixing it up a bit, then it'll go to St George. It will be coming to MRLS next year though.

Re: Official PDX Lounge

So it turns out, I did order myself a Miata, just not the one I thought. Some folks came in a few weeks ago and purchased the Miata that I had previously ordered for myself, and they traded this in. Finally got the OK for purchase from management.



Needs a bit of attention, and needs a top, but low miles and really a sweet little car, drives great!
