  • Orange and black is the new black

    Hi, I'm Greg and I have a new toy.

    This is a Westfield kit based on a 1994 Miata. I built it last year and got it on the road in March. It was an ambitious project: my previous car mechanic experience was that I watched some friends change an oil filter once. In the end there were no serious construction problems, and I have only stranded myself once (an alternator wire came loose) and that was over 2000 miles ago.

    I live on Skyline south of Los Gatos. My commute has fun mountain roads, especially if I take the long way to work. I expect to take the long way fairly often now.

    Based on your car's color scheme, I am guessing that you are a SF Giants fan!!

      Hi Greg,

      Welcome to the forum. Sean (that's his username) and I are both in San Jose and we both look for good excuses to take a drive.

      Looks like a beautiful build and I hope I get to see it in person sometime.

        I'm semi-local as well, in the hills west of Boulder Creek...

        Looking forward to seeing your car. Do try and make it to the picnic in August!

          Sadly I'll be out of town that weekend. You can wave to my cats as you drive by.

            gparker - I think I saw you driving on 280N in cupertino yesterday. The car looked good from the other side of the freeway.

              I bet it did! Can't see the dirt from that far away.
