Hey, remember that in the universes where Superman doesn't exist, Lex Luthor ends up as a good guy. »
My crystal ball says:
Stage 1 is going to be different front and rear bumper covers, side-skirts, hood, and spoiler. Likely an open intake and exhaust.
Stage 2 will have the body kit, an intake/exhaust upgrade, and different springs/dampers/swaybars.
Stage 3 will have the body kit, a suspension upgrade, and a… »

Best thing to do is take all this preservation money and use it to continue to buy new-off-the-lot Miatas with the options (AND TRANSMISSIONS) you want to see Miatas be produced with in the future. Want Mazda to keep making manual soft-tops with LSDs? Then buy them new from Mazda dealers. »
