I just bought a nice 91 Miata in Atlanta. I'm planning to drive it home to Minneapolis in a week and a half. I have the luxury of some time to purchase spares and will have the opportunity to give the car a tune up. I'm looking for any constructive input on spares I should purchase for the long trip. For example, I've heard cam sensors fail every so often on these cars. What other parts should I have with "just in case." This car will be used at the track so having spares would be good for that too.
What tools would you bring on a trip like this? I don't know these cars well, but I bet 95% of fasteners are 1 of 4 sizes. Why bring a huge tool kit when most of the tools would likely not get used.
I'm also looking for other suggestions like "make sure the spare is properly inflated." Seems obvious, but a friend of mine was stranded for not thinking ahead on this sort of thing.
Thanks in advance for your input!
