Alex's (@bucky_nb) "Ricer" Miata
This has to be one of my favorite Miatas, not just because the owner is a close friend of mine but because of the beauty and "No F***s Given" attitude towards the opinions of people who see the car. Alex is the third owner of the car but the car is extremely clean. These photos were taken a few days after Alex had an array of modifications done to the car.
The first in a series of mods done to the car was the installation of coil-overs to lower the vehicle to a ride height more suitable for a car that is planned to be drifted some day. Then came the desire for a better sound from the engine which involved taking out the stock air-box and replacing it with a cold air intake. After that came the tinting of the headlights to a very appealing and aggresive amber color.
The next series of mods came in a big way with a whole new more aggressive and sexy stance. The wheels are Felgenwerks FW.002's and have a tire size that allows for a considerable amount of stretch, along with the new wider wheels came the need to roll the fenders and use spacers to push the wheels out to avoid rubbing. The combination of the stretch, wheels, spacers, and fenders gives a very aggressive poke and something that'll turn heads everywhere. As the car drives by you will then notice the insane boso pipe protruding out of the rear of the car and that couple with a muffle delete gives a very deep growly noise to the car.
I have ridden in 900+ hp Nissan GTR's, drift cars, and street cars but riding in this car was just fun. It was pure and simple fun that felt like I was being sucked back into the days before every car had to have 1,000hp and had to burn through tires, when all that mattered is if your car could drive the way you want it to. This is and will be one of my favorite builds out there and I cannot wait to see what happens next.
