Review:

It's a no-nonsense guide to restoring the first two generations of the world's best selling sportswear and is a mine of information. Highly recommended to specialist car enthusiasts. --tkc

Where a typical workshop manual ends, this restoration manual begins ... essential stuff for anyone attempting major work on a first- or second-gen MX-5 for the first time. --Classic Car Weekly

A book which every MX5 owner will find useful, whether or not a full rebuild is contemplated. --Speedscene

About the Author:

Oliver Wild grew up in an engineering family, spending evenings in the garage with his father restoring a variety of classic cars from Porsches to MGs. His weekends were spent on windy airfields, competing in autotests. Following a successful career in the motor trade, the author has over 20 years of restoration experience across a range of marques, being in 'the game' for the love of it rather than big rewards, he has always gained more pleasure from rescuing beautiful cars and introducing new people into the hobby than chasing financial gain. Owning a variety of interesting cars ranging from classic British sports cars to Porsches, a love affair with the Mazda MX5 started in 2009, following a frustrating weekend away chasing an elusive ignition fault on a classic MG. Since then at least one MX5 has always featured in the authors stable! A keen traveller, Oliver usually spends his holidays touring Europe in a car, looking for the most interesting roads (preferably leading to a good restaurant). Assisted by his very patient partner Sarah and their trusty Beagle, Bruce, who can usually be found curled up on a car seat in the workshop, life is always busy and interesting.
