Seriously, making the Miata a rolling joke was one of the best things I could have ever done to a beat up thrice-wrecked old Miata. I’ve gotten more compliments and waves in the last few days than I did in the several months I had it before “the wreck”. It’s great, and extremely derisive. Some people like the wrap,…
Back in January I picked up a replacement to El Cheapacabra, the $600 musty Miata project car that was totaled when an E46 cut me off at an unprotected left. Using craigslist-fu and the insurance payout I was able to upgrade to this lower mile, non-smelly, smooth running ‘93 while monetarily breaking even on the…
I can see there’s a shopping cart in the spot to the right which the Mimi could still easily fit in, but I think this is a poor execution all around. I came, I shopped, I left, and he/she was still parked there.
And now I have some.
...also LS-powered miata.
There’s one for sale in Savanna and it comes with a matching hardtop! It should also be noted that this car lacks both LS package (tan leather interior, 16 wheels, etc) and the factory bodykit (aka, Tupperware), which is rare because quite a lot of these ‘02 special order cars came with either or both of those options…
Wheeling my friend’s Miata at the SCCA’s Wilmington Pro Solo last weekend.
Three weeks or so in and I am still in love. I wrote something about it for Hooniverse that I will share on here when that goes up. Combine the lovely new car with a good uptick in freelancing work and I’m pretty happy.
I can’t wait for the weekend to begin!
I put a hitch on my Miata because I wanted to take my bikes with me with simultaneous trunk access.
I just never realized how small. I parked next to one at Olive Garden today and my 6 dwarfed it. Sorry for the crap pictures. My co-workers had went inside to get food to-go and there were people walking by (didn’t want to creep out the ND owner if they happened to walk by as well).
This is terrible on so many levels:
In the spirit of change, I have swapped my 944 for something a tad newer. Something I haven’t actually experienced before. When I had my S2000 I laughed at the MX-5. In my mind Honda had beat Mazda at the game they had helped revive. Now, after driving this NB Miata for a day I’m not so sure they did.
Was looking for Miata’s on local CL when I came across this... Is this a thing now or this person just crazy?
Now I have to figure out what to do with the thing..
So Lady TheDuck is very against me getting a Miata. She thinks it’s too small, unsafe, and imagines me flying out of it in an accident. As a result, the latter, all convertibles, are banned. However!
Finally scored an ‘01 SE wheel. Wrong wood color to match the knob but IDGAF, it feels and looks so good. It was a semi-local and convenient buy too! I was autocrossing in Myrtle Beach yesterday and the seller happened to be 30 miles South of the event!
