    Lightyear's Track MX5 back up car.

    I went with a friend to look at this car



    (talked him into building an MX5 track car). He didn't think it was good enough, but for the money I thought it was great. So went down the next day and bought it.
    I have had enough of waiting for cars to get built, so this will be my permanent track car back up.
    Should have this fully built for around $6k in total, as I have some some bits laying around already. I want to keep it mild, and capable of doing around a 1:53 at Phillip Island.
    It has about 225,000km's, and is tidy enough. Pending on parts arriving, this should be built in a week or so.

        The car will owe me about $3k by the time I offload the bits I don't need. So it is about as cheap as it gets for a good base. For sure a win. Bought cash, and I did some good low balling.. 😈

              More interestingly, how many mx5s have you had? Surely by now we should just be calling you Stefan.

              P.s. yes I'm jealous of your car ownership keep it up.

                I think today's acquisition tops the cake...... Bought a holiday house on Smiths Beach. Google where it is. Proof of my dedication to the best track in Aus.
                I may rent it out on weekends to the better behaved P.F members.

                  Close enough. 2 x MX5's, 1 x VN Group A (will be a VP Supercar) Commodore race car, 1 x VF 2 SS wagon ( Commodore tow car), 1 x Mazda 3 (no pics car) and the Mustang.
                  As to how many MX5's, no idea. I have an NA6 rolling shell at my brothers farm. If you count cars like that, then a lot.

                    Nice work mate, only 3 and half hours drive from Barbagallo.

                    Seriously though, congrats. I have a family member at Cape Woolamai and it's an awesome place to be.

                        This is the beach about 400m down the hill. Can't get much better.

                          It's an MX5, don't need a mechanic. But I may need one for the commodore..

                            yeah smiths is nice, I liked the vibe of Flynn's beach more but the scenery at smiths is more plentiful.

                            I'll PM you a guy I used to work with.

                              So anything really wrong with that MX5?

                              Congrats on the house purchase too. If you don't hold all records for the track though will it still be worth it? :D
