Off Road Miata

I guess it's kinda like an affordable Safari Porsche?

I saw this in my feed, but haven't watched it yet. I also saw the one where the guy is building an off-road Miata and extended the front suspension 12" on each side! He made custom upper and lower control arms to accomplish and that has the gears in my brain turning pretty hard.

Ha, I know! Watching other people do fun/cool stuff kinda kills me. Makes me want to get into another project...when of course I already have like five other projects going.

One of mine has been to make an early 1980s Toyota Celica (A60) into an AWD, utilizing the drivetrain from a first gen Toyota RAV4. Ugh...
