..beautiful b/w pictures! Is the car a Mazda? what engine?

cheers,

Yes, it's an MX-5.  The engine is a 1.8 liter DOHC, with a lot of mods, including a supercharger, headers, cold-air induction, free-flow pipes, high pressure fuel pump, etc.  I've never had her dyno'ed but would guess that she makes pretty close to 250 hp at the rear wheels while looking stock.  She's a corner-cutter, not any kind of dragster, but she'll will dust a 5 liter Mustang off the line, much to the chagrin of a few local kids messin' with an old guy in his "cute little" car.
