I’m not going to say that this is a face that only a mother could love because a few people find this particular modification to the MX-5 pleasing to the tune of $3k plus shipping and the mini Cobra attitude grows on me each time I refresh the image. And besides, if this is your car, you can paint a Campbell’s soup can on the side for all I care — ignore the haters, and PitCrew your MX-5! Or save your cash and buy this already completed 1991 Mazda MX-5 Miata “Pit Crew Custom” offered for $8,000 in Ann Arbor, MI via craigslist. Tip from Derrick.
At first I was confused about the meaning of Pit Crew in this context, but then I recalled the incident in which Kobayashi (Kamui Kobayashi of Sauber F1 fame, not Takeru Kobayashi of 97 hot dogs in 12 minutes fame) ran over half his pit crew –so I’m guessing that they grafted this front end onto Kobayashi’s daily driver as some kind of retribution. Well played Pit Crew…well played.
If the Ace front end isn’t custom enough for you, the interior features a spattering of chrome goodies, and a set of gauges that look very “60s”. The interior includes an assortment of bolt on parts, including a set of GarageStar delrin door bushings — hey guess what, you can hear Ken from GarageStar talking around minute 45 of the DT Radio Show with Ashley LeLuca.
