Upon seeing this burnt-up Mazdaspeed Miata, any enthusiast could be forgiven for saying the prognosis looked dire. With almost no part of the car spared, one would surely consider it consigned to the scrapheap. However, where some saw ruin, Alex Giroux saw opportunity, and got the badly-charred vehicle driving once again.
The car was trapped in a garage during a house fire, suffering badly as a result. The aluminum bonnet melted through in places, while the headlights similarly began to turn to goo. The paint was charred by the flames, with the soft top burnt down to its frame and the windscreen exploded from the sheer heat. The engine bay saw excessive temperatures as well, with the washer bottle scrunched up like a Shrinky-Dink in an oven.
