Fred99: We have an old ('99) MX5.  It's just a bog standard 1.8 / 6 speed.

I wish I had an MX5, some spare cash, and some spare room.  I'd do this http://westiebuild.blogspot.co.nz/ in a heartbeat!

bonkas: This is my baby.

Not much but I love it.

Just a standard 1600 at the moment with about 70hp or so.

I have another 1600 enging in my shed running about 140hp destined for it one day.. one day...

has no electronic gozmos or anything reallly electronic which is a large reason why I love it so much, easy to work on and fun to drive.

Wow.
You forgot to mention time - lots and lots of it from the look of that.
Another option for an MX5 is this.

Well I spent a happy few hours pulling the dash out to pimp my ride with a new set of speakers, tweeters and a rev gauge!!! ;-)

OK so not really performance related but going to make me happier on the commutes :-)



What you can't see in the photo is the inclusion of bass bins which were a bit of a bugger to fit since the mounting points had no thread on them :-(

Just took delivery of a Daihatsu Midget II, need to do some work on the Panther in the background so just had to have a spare vehicle while it's off the road.  Well, that's my story and I'm sticking to it :-)



The Panther is basically stock standard (in as much as Panther's can be), replaced the crappy 30 year old stereo, and otherwise just general maintenance.

The Midget II will get a new stereo, and some stickers, because trucks should have stickers, and some maintenance.

I like strange vehicles.  The Panther is one of about 1500 produced in the UK in the 80s, Ford (Escort, Capri, Cortina) mechanicals.  The Midget II, well if you haven't seen one, they are a single seat Kei class mini truck, a massive 660cc with 35 horsepower.
