  • Miata Toying With Some F-Bodies

    This was posted up on another forum, here's the explanation that the OP gave:

    ... I was hanging out with some friends earlier today, taking some pictures and getting some videos. A couple of the f body guys decide they want to run each other. Camaro vs Firebird, should make for a good race. They run, Camaro takes the win.

    Someone decides it would be cool if I start ahead of the LS1s with the camera mounted on my rollbar facing backwards to tape the race. They were concerned that I might get in the way though, so we decided to do a test run w/ me against the Firebird to see how big of a head start I would need in order to safely tape the race...

    Well, after that we kinda forgot about mounting the camera on my rollbar, just sit back and enjoy the video. :giggle:


    My favorite part is where kotomile (who is from Augusta, GA and has a nice turbo Miata) leaves a reply along the lines of "Not bad for FWD" and the V8 guys fall for it. :lol:

    Welcome to Awesometown.

    Who's this dude in Augusta with a turbo Miata?!?! I've only seen one here, but it was an Army guy that's since moved away.

        Probably same guy. He lives in California right now. This is his Miata, which his dad is keeping for him at the moment:

        IDK? Pretty sure races were started like that way before F&F was even a concept. Or so all the hot rod builders in my neighborhood tell me, some even have video. ;)

                      Matt's car is pretty cool. He more or less copied my 91. I mean blatantly copied too, he told me after seeing mine and what it did. :lol:

                      We 'squirted Matt's car at my house. Myself, Rob, Matt, and a buddy of his. That was an airfilter I happened to have in the garage and the breather hose is clear flex **** that was from home depot up the road. :lol: Too bad the army took Matt to California.

                            The Miata is at his dad's, not in Cali. He has his OTM there, an SRT-4.

                              Matt is/was active on the Myspace Miata forums - talked to him there often... before it got more mundane than IA there.
