I present to you all a stanced, V8-powered MX-5/Miata hot rod. Oh dear....
About this creation
1994 Mazda MX-5 (NA8CE) hot rod
Other details and such
Fictional V8

So, the story behind this particular incarnation of a Miata is that I was getting frustrated by the front end. So I thought, why not make it into a hot rod for the first meet for the year over at Head Turnerz. And thus, this monstrosity was born....

It features a fairly short wheelbase and a substantial steering-lock to help maintain the sporty characteristics of the donor Miata body. The good 'ol V8, tall gear stick and skinny front wheels are very much typical rod details, but I couldn't resist putting some Japanese-esque styles cues in mix too.

Update: 7th of February 2014

Mere days after its birth, the Monster Miata has been laid to rest. Taking its place in the garage is a 'normal' Miata - which was what I originally wanted to build.



As always, there's more pictures and discussion over on my flickr page. But you're more than welcome to leave any comments and criticism here. Thank you for taking a look at my very silly Miata. :)

Thank you very much for your kind words, everyone. I couldn't have asked for a better response from the community, especially considering how unorthodox this particular Miata is.

Fantastic stuff, it'll be great to have you join 'Head Turnerz' - I think yo'll fit in really well.

YAY! RHYS!! I've missed you! welcome back, and what a...urr....Thing! A crazy idea, with even more crazy modifications- as SSSW said, not to my taste, but the build techniques are fabulous. I've kept in touch with Aaden, and would love to join Flickr and 'Head turnerz', but I'm still a few months shy of 13. Hope to see more!

Unusual and not really to my taste, but it is still a superb build. Great techniques and shaping all over, especially the rear, which is absolutely spot on. Excellent work!
