Is A Coal-Rolling Drift Miata The Best Gearhead Charity Project Ever?

Can you think of a better way to raise money?

The DIY car mod YouTube channel Pistonhead Productions, not to be confused with the UK car website PistonHeads, needs your help to build a Cummins drift Miata. The channel is asking for $10,000 CAD ($7,485 USD) to help fund the wacky racer. Powering it will be a Cummins 4BT, a 3.9-liter straight-four diesel engine. There will also be a ton of other mods to help accommodate the newfound torque and weight. So, why does Pistonhead Productions want to build and drift a diesel Miata?

After building and drifting the car it will be raffled off, with all the proceeds going towards a high school’s auto shop program. The goal is to help better fund the auto shop so as to ensure a new crop of future gearheads. Sounds awesome to us. Check out the video to learn more.
