This is a project care for someone that wants to have fun with it.  The previous owner bridge-ported the engine for maximum gas flow. Then got in trouble and never finished it.  I understand that is very expensive to do.  I just put the battery, a freshly re-manufactured Holley 650 cfm carburetor, a nice Holey fuel pump and new spark plugs.  It fired up but it is a race car not a daily driver for me.  It has huge stainless steel exhaust pips and is loud.  Fast and loud.  I took it out a few times but it got fowled out because I did not use the racing spark plugs.  Selling it as is where is as a project for someone who know how to work on the rotary engine.  I also have a origional fuel injection for it but I am not sure that would make this engine go.  It has had the a/c remove and the power steering for racing.  I have some of that I think.  I drove it fine without power steering.  Body need paint see the pictures.  I had this running but it has been sitting and I started it about every month but now it seems the plugs are fowled or something.  Needs work to get it running. I bought this originally for my son to drive but did not know it was modified to race.  I didn't know till I started it.  Wow then I knew so he never got to drive it.

Next Mazda MX-5 Miata to weigh a ton(ne), literally

Wed, 27 Nov 2013 10:31:00 EST

Looking at recent spy shots of the fourth-generation Mazda Miata, it's obvious this sporty little roadster will grow in size compared to the current model, but it's also going on a diet. At the Tokyo Motor Show, Auto Motor und Sport sat down with Mazda executive Kiyoshi Fujiwara, who gave a little more insight into the Miata's redesign.
Fujiwara said that they're aiming for a curb weight of a tonne (metric ton), which is 1,000 kilograms or right around 2,200 pounds, for the next-generation Miata. This would make the roadster at least 300 pounds lighter than the current NC Miata, but still about 200 pounds heavier than the original NA.
There is no indication as to how Mazda will go about removing that much weight from the bigger car, but with as popular as the power retractable hard top (PHRT) model is on the current car, the new Miata may ditch this feature to lose its weight. Improving the power-to-weight ratio appears to be a key goal of the Mazda team, so we also wouldn't be surprised to see a more powerful engine underneath the longer hood.

Will Mazda show the next Miata's chassis in NY?

Fri, 21 Mar 2014 15:43:00 EST

Mazda is being very sneaky about what it is bringing to the New York Auto Show, and it might have something to do with the next-generation MX-5 Miata. Australian website Motoring.com.au spoke to a company insider who told it that at least the chassis for the roadster would debut in Manhattan. The rumor goes that the show will act as the kickoff for the PR campaign for the new model.
We contacted Mazda USA PR Director Jeremy Barnes to find out more, and he would neither confirm nor deny the rumor. "Just because you read it on the Internet doesn't mean you should repeat it," he said to Autoblog. That's not exactly an outright, No.
Supporting evidence that the new drop top might be appearing in the Big Apple includes Mazda's plan to celebrate the model's 25th anniversary at the show. It's bringing 15 cars from the first three generations to display. "It will be absolutely worth attending the New York Auto Show if you're a Miata fan," Barnes said. That at least hints that there might be something he's not telling us. Otherwise it's a lot of sizzle without much steak.

The 2014 North American International Auto Show is right around the corner, which means it's high time we found out which cars and trucks would be finalists for the prestigious North American Car and Truck/Utility of the Year awards.
The finalists - three in cars and three in three trucks/utilities - are dominated by American brands, with two-thirds of the finalists hailing from either General Motors or Chrysler (don't worry Ford, there's always next year), while outliers from Mazda and Acura can be found in each contest. Here now is the list of finalists for the big prizes:
