Miataholics 12 steps

By Tina Csomo - tinabee@peganet.com

Step 1: We admitted that we were powerless over our beloved roadsters, and that our lives have been consumed by the sweet little things we have parked in our driveways and garages.

Step 2: Came to believe that a forced induction system more powerful than ourselves could make us hungry for more bhp.

Step 3: Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to any aftermarket supplier willing to arrange overnight deliveries.

Step 4: Made a searching and fearless look at our checkbooks and VISA statements before the spouse could get to the mailbox.

Step 5: Admitted to our felow club members and ourselves the exact mods we have done,and which ones we plan on next!

Step 6: Were entirely ready to remove any excess weight from the chassis necessary, so as to get a better auto-x time.

Step 7: Humbly asked Dealer Alternative for an FM ECU and a Stage IV Turbo.

Step 8: Made a list of all winding, hilly roads in the United States, and make arrangements to ride them all.

Step 9: Made direct amends to the angry spouse who discovered the VISA statement by giving them a set of keys to their new 10th AE.

Step 10: Continued to take personal inventory of all expendable funds to help pay for a Robbins top, and a dual-tipped exhaust.

Step 11: Sought through consistent contact with the listmembers any means necessary to get even MORE bhp.

Step 12: Having had a revelation that you should have bought the car a long time ago, embarked on a quest to spread the "disease" of Miataholicism to friends and family. After all...you always wanted to start a club, and be prez!
