Sensational Comeback

Written by : Posted on December 8, 2011 : 2 Comments

A great deal of nicely done Miata’s has taken over our streets. This may not seem noticeable in your town, but at least in the interwebz we’ve been bombarded with some real clean setups. A few weeks ago, we received this feature request by one our fans and we couldn’t pass the up the opportunity.  As a matter of fact, Matt (the owner) had just finished the body work the night before. Immediately we got to work and our photographer Jeff Littlefield brought it all together for us to enjoy.

Like many of us, Matt has been in the automotive scene for some time but it’s the fitment scene that has really captivated him. The car as it is looks phenomenal and you gotta love everything about it. The choice of wheels and slammage look great, but the color is breathtaking. However, what’s really amazing about this build is that in ten months of owning this Miata he took it from a “borderline junker” (as he described it, lol) to this teal looking beauty and he’s not done just yet.

When we come across every day enthusiasts like Matt Lamphier and see his hard work beginning to payoff, it gives us all a sense of fulfillment. Sure, at the end of the day he’s the one that truly enjoys it, but features are not meant only to satisfy the creator. They serve a purpose beyond the use of bandwidth and viewing pleasure. Features rejuvenate the scene and change the way we feel about the cars we love, they spark creativity and inspire others. If just one enthusiast can transform this feature into their own ideas, than the real purpose of Matt’s Miata has been accomplished. With that said, teal, a clean drop, and legit wheels has never looked this good!
