Aha the mx5, little did I know when I first saw them about in my late teens that they would become the drifters dream they are now. They were just hairdressers cars, but now they must be one of the most popular modded cars I see on the internet and on the road.

I have to admit it was the likes of Tyler Falko that got me interested in them. Say and think what you want but the Camberghini is rad, its retarded but that’s what makes it rad. So with the mx5 or Miata’s there seem to be a few golden rules, wheels of course, decked, camber, ducktail, welded diff and big wing optional. Even following these rules there is so much variations that no two are a like. I was scrolling instagram on the search of a nice example so I could harass the owner into a write up and I came across @timeoutvisions tongue flapping mx5 and I knew this was the one. So when he got it, it was a stock mk1 1.8.

So back to the car, being a stock mx5, it came with a lovely full leather tan interior and being that this probably looked old, dated and lets be honest shit, it had to be swapped out to black cloth. Add a few choice fibreglass bits, GV style front lip, a ducktail, and a nice eBay wing gave this mx5 some much needed flare, and talking about flare its currently in the process of getting some handmade custom wide arches built by timeoutvison and his friends with a mixture of filler and steel, and that is the icing on the cake as it were, custom, hand built, unique and therefore rad as fook…

And if you fancy just a touch more attention I would recommend covering your ride in blood for Halloween…
