I’ve heard of and seen for sale many a drift pig in my time. This is the first drift dinosaur I’ve ever come across though. Well I’m guessing it’s a dinosaur they were aiming for?
1991 Mazda Mx5 Drift Dinosaur (Or since it’s from the states, a Mazda Miata drift dinosaur..)
Once upon a time I was keen on a type NA Mazda Mx-5 (not so much anymore – see: Family and practicality reasons) and seeing one of these early models reminds me of the import scene of the mid 2000’s where you’d get a few popping up for sales through various importers such as Yahoo Motorsports and J-Spec. However I don’t think they stocked anything as…uh…overcooked as this drift missile.
Yes it’s the world’s angriest Ferrero Rochere in car form ready to loudly rumble around the nearest drift pen, blinding all those who dare to watch it on a very sunny day. And while it’s a pretty comprehensive parts list, I feel the only thing missing is a button or mp3 player hooked up to speakers to make this drift dinosaur actually roar like one. If you buy it, maybe that’s the first thing you’ll add?
