They are pretty lucky there - they are like hens teeth in Kent. I guess they probably don't rust away as much in Ireland.

If you got your licence this year I am guessing you are quite young, would an MX5 not be much cheaper on the insurance for you? You must be looking at a couple of thousand to cover an SX! :shock:

Hi.
I am not drifting yet,but i am building a drifter step by step.
Beside mazda i am working with Mitsubishi Starion 2.0T Narrow body.
Because i am a student i don`t have lots of money so i can build slowly.
There are much to do,this Starion/Starquest is 1982 year. and not so bad shape, it has less rust then my mazda have.

Hey :)
I'm completely new to all this but drifting is an ambition of mine :p
I'm from Ireland if anyone could recommend any good cars to get me going, Galants are what I'm looking at at the moment..

Hi I'm, Joe, and I drive a 1966 Beetle with stock suspension, and while easy to drift, it is also VERY easy to tailspin. But once you get the hang of it, it's definitely a fun/cheap car to drift. At the moment, with the stock suspension, I can't ever get much of an angle, but hopefully I'll be lowering it, and upgrading to coilovers.

It's definitely something nobody ever expects to see drifting.
