Default US MX250 build

Back story, last year I imported two Tribute kits to the US. I planned on fitting the D-type body to a Factory Five Racing Cobra frame first, but the perfect donor popped up in my Facebook feed and like a moth to a flame, I could not resist!

Here's what $450 US, got me...



1992 1.6 with 126K with a clean title



Almost zero rust and for the Northeast, that is quite rare!



The damaged occurred when the guy's wife hit someone, and then he hit her. Not surprising, they're now divorced

So it begins...

It must have lived further south for much of the last 27 years, the salt on the roads in the NE states is worse than the UK.

Default First steps...

I work a Career and Technical High School, I'm having one of the programs I work with awake the Miata from its slumber. They reinstalled the radiator and hooked up a battery and she fired right up.
