New Purchase – Mazda MX-5 Eunos Roadster

Miranda says "Hello"

Say “Hello”

I’ve been looking for a project for a while, and although I talk a lot, I also walk the walk, if that makes sense. Mighty Car Mods, an Aussie based duo who have been present on YouTube for some time and are increasing in popularity rapidly, have turbocharged a Roadster already. I thought that 195bhp in something that weighs less than a tonne could be quite fun, so thought that it’s going to be the cheapest way to get some turbo fun.

My love for convertibles cars started with the MG TF, which I still have, and then proceeded to the  Audi, with the V8, which I love equally as much. But there was one thing missing – turbo!

I am also longing for that ‘boost’!

So this is going to be it – it’s a 1990 Mazda Roadster with a 1.6l DOHC 16V Engine, PAS, Air Con, and only 69000 miles on the clock. Price, £400. That’s what you get if you’re willing to be a bit gutsy with your offers…

I’m going to be updating the project page via Home Mechanic – with videos on YouTube and progress blogs here too.
