Never Mind Horsepower, Flyin’ Miata Gives You Goat Power

Flyin’ MIata has been the go-to site for the Miata enthusiast looking for more power or better handling since the early 1990s. What started as a European specialty repair shop in New Jersey evolved into a Miata specific parts and tuning operation based out of Palisade, Colorado. Want better handling from your first, second or third generation Miata? The staff at FM can hook you up with everything from components through suspension kits. Want to go faster? They’ll sell you fully sorted and developed turbo or blower kits. Want to go a lot faster? They’ll even build you a second generation Miata with an Chevy LS3 V-8 stuffed under the hood.

Now, when you buy a FMII Turbo Kit, or place any other order with FM for $5,000 or more, the company will donate a goat to a needy family via Heifer International. Goats are the ideal animals for families in developing countries, since they provide up to seven quarts of milk per day and yield an endless amount of fertilizer. They can survive by eating almost anything, and reproduce with alarming regularity, which means one goat can be turned into a herd of goats in short order.

I’ll admit that this isn’t your typical “buy a turbo, get a free company t-shirt” promotion, but how often would you wear a logo t-shirt, anyway? If you’re going to drop coin on making your Miata go faster, you also get the chance to do something noble for a family in need. If that’s not a good return on your investment, I don’t know what is.

    Don’t you need two goats, not just one, to turn into a herd?

    That’s a really cool promotion, though. Most unique one I’ve heard of.

    this is a great idea…. i think they should just do it for every 5000 ordered not just for one single order for 5000….
