CRISPEED ... a fire Survivor story
In the Spring of 2021, MSM # 409353 was parked snuggly in it's garage when the house became engulfed in flames eventually destroying the home and most of its contents, However, the car survived mostly intact although the aluminum hood melted through in places, the headlights were mush. The Titanium Grey paint was badly charred by the flames, the soft top burnt down to its frame and the windshield had exploded from the extreme heat.
This burnt-up Mazdaspeed Miata, with almost no part of the car spared, the engine bay was charred beyond recognition the interior just a memory, was obviously dead and just needed a proper burial.
That's were Alex Giroux comes in, he thrives off of building unusual Miata projects (he's had 48 of 'em) and loved the challenge of getting this badly-charred MSM driving once again.
Upon first inspection, Alex noted that everything electrical, but the fuel pump, was still working fine. "I knew it'd be easy; nothing was fully gone, wiring wise." So with a lot of patience, Alex simply began peeling apart the engine harness where some of the wires had melted together from the heat. With all of the potential short circuits eliminated, he was surprised when turning the key, the car started right up.
