Lenny in an MX5? -

I don't think so :lol:

  

Get an MR2 Roadster so you can really move over to the pink side :P

The old version of the MR2 was alrite, could create a Ferrari replica with the chassis,
But no mx5 guys,
I need a back seat for the kids in the event to focus is ever unavailable the Levin would become the required vehicle although Vicki says herself or the kids will NEVER sit in it lol

Saw one a couple of years ago, looked very good until you noticed the cooling fans showing through the rear slats.

An MX-5 may not be the best looking, but with 250bhp in them they're more fun than most cars for that kind of price range :P

 

What about an R33 Skyline? Or is that a little large? 

 

No Impreza's or Evo's, they're terrible things (although the hatchback Impreza is a win).

Here is a too mod for your gear change lmao http://www.ebay.co.u...=item461201a5d9
One has to question.. why are they showing its size in comparison to an IPhone ?
Might stop you jumping in to the drivers seat from the passengers side
Instead of getting out and walking around the car!!  


One kñob sitting in the passenger seat is more than enough in the car thanks babes ....your daughters seen the eyelashes for the car today and a hula dancer air freshner lol

Ive never been that close to notice anything like that mate,
Last time i saw one, it was parked on main street of Dundalk in 1999 stuck in mu mind because it had this snorkle style induction scoop tha came out of the rear engine grill behind the rear window and sat on the roof facing forwards,
I remember thinking that looks super cool lol mind you i was 14 years old then.

An MX-5 may not be the best looking, but with 250bhp in them they're more fun than most cars for that kind of price range :P

No Impreza's or Evo's, they're terrible things (although the hatchback Impreza is a win).

I agree the Mazda Mx-5 can be tuned nicely, even mighty car mods took one and fitted a turbo with stand alone ecu,
They fitted a dump valve too which seems weird on a convertable car lol
An R33 mew ha ha ha
Now that's a serious car mate, I'd be afraid to drive it encase the rear swung out on me,
And I believe they would require an upgrade from ceramic turbo to ball bearing turbo or something,
My mate Declan in work told me before that skylines R32 and R33 had ceramic turbos which didn't like extra boost too much.
Beautiful car and I have saw them around but too much power on the rear axle for my liking lol

Lenny, been following your plans for a while. I found this today just in case you were interested:

Price seems right and appears to not have any mods done so far. Might be a winner :)

P.S: After seeing that Mighty Car Mods episode, I really wanted to get myself an MX-5 as a project car. Still could be my mid life crisis plan :P

Thanks mate,
It does look to be in great condition and those are standard alloys,
Only problem is I'm in the process of saving so it will be December/January when it will shadow the drive way lol
If you find any others please pm me mate,
Limits the potential competition ;)

@Lenny: Will keep an eye out and if I see any new ones will PM you. Did you consider trying to import a fresh one from Japan? Or better, find a nice used model from the UK and bring it over. I reckon there will be a good few more over there than here.

 

@Vicki: Let Lenny enjoy life a little. He has served his biological purpose already ;) Let him have his toy...ahem project car. The way I see it is, he is a wealth of knowledge already and will be helping out others with his future guides for the next car. That kind of karma goes a long way and it's always good to have some good karma in this lifetime. Plus, it could be worse and he could have chosen to get a golf :P

your getting a focus out of it princess ;) will get me up on a Monday morning and out to work smiling

Thanks Hassen lol
Check you back, Vicki might have a virtual knife in it mate :lol:
Believe it or not, the AE111 has started to go up in price again in japan, because most have been exported,
From what I read on the forum, the uk doesn't have as many of them as Ireland does,
I've saw two breakers from your county who have possession of around five Levine each all dedicated to breaking and spares,
This is fantastic because I can travel in the economical focus to collect parts from within the country instead of purchasing or trying to source from japan,
I appreciate you looking out for a good one, but hold off on that until December because I won't have the funds saved until then, and I'm only teasing myself viewing before I can afford to buy it.

What would your main plans be, keeping stock, track day stuff, modifying, rwd conversion? 

.Mainly I'll keep it tastefully modified and in theme with its era, not for track use just for the roads with sweeping bends,
It will be for the occasional trip to work, when Vicki needs the focus, and for weekend drives in the country,
My main plan is to restore the interior for example if stock speaker grills were missing or dash was badly scratched I'd try to source parts to get it back to like new,
