I'm not the best with introductions so here goes
Just thought I would pop my head in and say hello
Collected my 1st mx5 mk1 3 weeks ago now and loving mostly every day of it :D
Reason why I bought a 5'er was because I needed a new daily, I had the use of a Fiat Cinq Sporting in yellow which I did actually rather like but she was starting to fall apart, plus I was starting to get a little bit fed up of her so started looking for a new daily. I looked at everything from old school mk1 and mk2 Fiesta's to a Clio Williams to a cheap Fiat Coupe but just couldn't find anything in budget or what I really fancied. So I have always had a softspot for the mx5 so had a look for a nice mk1 as I know I didn't want to blow the budget on a mk2, viewed a few mk1's but was put off by rusty sills and floor pans so I nearly gave up on finding a nice tidy one in budget...until I found the one I have now :)
She is a 1995 1.8 UK Mazda MX5 MK1 in Laguna Blue Mica, shes done 95k miles, paint work is not tooo shabby but I didn't mind that but more importantly no rust anywhere on the car, went a viewed her and bought it that same night :)
I also own as more of a toy than anything an Alfa Romeo 147GTA which I was using as my daily so I don't really care about MPG or lack of MPG from the MX5 ;)
Now for some photo's...the 1st ones are from the seller...
I also cleaned the hood and protected it :)
Then I lost her on a wet corner and hit a tree head-on, luckily I was fine and not toooo much damage to the car, a dented bumper and two smashed alloys :o
New alloys later :)
