This was sort of an impromptu shoot. Luckily we had one of the most awesome roads I've ever seen at our disposal, and this is the perfect car for a road like that. This is a '96 Miata with a 1.8 engine swap/6spd. manual, supercharged, making about 190whp and 160lb/ft of torque basically off-idle. With a 2,300lb. curb weight, that's really all the power you need. It's definitely no show-queen, but it gets down on the track. I really love this car!

This road is actually up in San Luis Obispo. I was up there for a Volvo meet, of all things. This dude in the Miata showed up, and I overheard him talking about doing a canyon run up to some road to take photos, so of course I tagged along. :cool:
