Last fall, David met with GRM to do a quick photoshoot of the original swap car, and to share a bit of KMiata history with readers. Big thanks to Joe for taking the time to visit, and for the article.  From the GRM article: "There is no perfect car. Regardless of how good a machine is when it is released, there will always be enthusiasts looking to modify and improve. This even holds true for one of our all-time favorites, the Mazda MX-5 Miata.
