Overview

With its arrival in the United States in 1990, the Mazda Miata inspired the return of the open roadster. Though other makes and models followed, the Miata remains the convertible sports car of choice for budget-conscious enthusiasts, as popular in autocross and amateur racing circles as it is among pleasure drivers.

This book shows readers how to make the most of any Miata: what to look for in a used model and how to perform common maintenance and repairs, as well as over 15 projects to improve performance and appearance. Focusing on the engine, wheels and tires, suspension, body kits, interior, and more, the projects include full details on required parts, cost, time, tools, and skill necessary for completion. With easy-to-follow directions and clear illustrations, this handy guide is a virtual road map for taking the Miata the full distance.

Meet the Author

Keith Tanner has been working on Miatas for over a decade and has been a technician at Flyin’ Miata for more than five years. He spends his days modifying, repairing, dismantling, and providing technical support for all Miatas. At home, he's restored a 1967 Land Rover and a 1966 Cadillac to go along with his classic Mini, Mazda 323 GTX, and a few Miatas. He's also built a Lotus Seven replica that uses Miata mechanicals, and his latest project is a Miata for the Targa Newfoundland race. He's published two other books in the Motorbooks Workshop series—Mazda Miata MX-5 Performance Projects and How to Build a Cheap Sports Car—and has also written a number of magazine articles. When he's not playing with cars, he's out on skis or a bike. He lives in Colorado in a house with a large garage hidden underneath.
