Miata Money

by on Apr.09, 2012, under Uncategorized

So.. I’ve been spending a fair mount of money on the Miata recently. I blame Ian.. I guess myself, but mostly Ian ;) I’ve been into cars forever, but he has taken the next step and been taking his car to the track.. so while I own a Miata.. it was decided (by me) that it was FINALLY time that I get the miata out to a track day.
I became a member of the Audi Club, so I could get access to it’s Spring Driver education event at VIR.. which with it, has many rules (many, many rules).
First off, I had to buy and then install a 4 point roll bar (thanks here to Ian for spending most of a weekend with me getting it installed). Then it was purchasing and installing all new brakes (rotors/pads/stainless lines/high temp fluid) which, while I needed new brakes.. I don’t know that I needed track worthy equip that much.. but well, now I have it.
Then it was out to buy myself a Helmet (yes, white.. like the Stig.. though it has a clear visor) as well as 6 point harnesses to help keep me safe.
At the end of the day, it’s a fair amount of one time necessary purchases.. but damn it adds up to an astonishingly large sum..
I guess it’s just best to not think about it.
