Synopsis: Share in the trials and tribulations of turning a bare frame and wrecked Miata into a racetrack demon, and learn how to build a sports car of your own along the way. This book provides specific answers to common questions and covers the entire building process, including the post-build fine-tuning of the car that is necessary to extract the car's full performance (and fun) potential.

Review: An absolutley brilliant read for anyone even remotely interested in cars, engineering, high-performance track machinery, engine suspension tuning or garage projects in general. Turns out Keith's a fine, often funny writer with a wonderful, practicle, nuts and bolts grasp of things...Better yet, he puts it inot words and phrases that an average joe can undrstand. And enjoy. ..Buy yourself a copy now --Grassroots Motorsports

This book is in sections rather than the more usual chapters. This makes it a bit difficult to find information quickly. You need to look at the index first. It starts with finding a donor car and moves almost immediatly into putting the car together. This book is much more of an overview compared with some of the books I have reviewed. Most of the information is there if you look for it. The car itself appears comparable to the similar English version you see so often being driven around on sunny summer days. --Model Engineers' Workshop

I bought this book after looking over Keith's website. If you approach the book more as a miata-based build diary, rather than a how-to book, it is a great book. The pictures and information are well put together. I am in the process of my own build, using a pre-made chassis from coveland7.com, and reading Keith's book gave me a realistic idea of what to expect during the build process and provided the information that I needed for my own planning process. I also have the Ron Champion book, which goes over how to build the actual chassis. Since I am planning on buying a pre-welded chassis, this book is less of a use to me than Keith's book. Thanks to Keith for putting together a well written book. If you are going to build you own locost project, I would recommend buying this and the Champion book. --American Motors
