Long Time Lurker, First Time Poster

Hello all,

I’ve been a long time lurker on Jalopnik and Opposite lock, and I would like to start sharing my automotive endeavors with the OPPO community. Here’s a little bit about myself.

I am a college student, runner, and automotive enthusiast. I’m a Technologies major, and Computer Science Minor. I run cross-country and track for my school, and I work a part time job as a mechanic for the school I attend. Most of the time I work on late 1990s dodge fleet vehicles and trucks, as well as Kubota riding lawnmowers. Currently I drive a 1991 Mazda Miata, I bought it in the summer of 2015, from a one owner, it presently sits at just under 76,000 miles. A part from the wheels and removable hardtop, it is bone stock, all the way down to the cassette player. At home, I have a 1986 Toyota MR2 that runs and drives well, and is in good shape cosmetically, but is plagued with a few electrical gremlins. It’s mechanically strong, however parts are becoming increasingly rare to come by.


This summer I have big road trip plans, (possibly coast to coast) and I look forward to attending my first autocross session. I have not decided on which car to try first, the Miata or MR2? I would love to hear your suggestions on what I should take out to knock over a few cones and embarrass myself in an empty parking lot.

Thanks for giving this a quick read, and I’ll keep you all updated!
