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!
Traveling the country on business trips generally means boring budget economy rental cars. Bare bones entry models with firm cloth seats, strange odors and tires that squeal at the onset of the slightest of lateral movements. Driving enthusiasts understand that this is no way to enhance a trip and is absolutely…
Pulled off all the parts of my Miata that rusted loose this winter. Note that all these came off without tools. #Saltlyfe
Since my 25th Eunos sticker failed to stay on, the center portion of my hardtop stickerbomb vinyl stripe has been looking a bit bare. Not any longer, I’ve been saving that spot for this, now the 787B-themed logo is front and center!
Went out and grabbed some pictures this evening while driving around (these are all still RAWs, drove three hours to pick up the car and too lazy to edit). In short, it’s a blast.
It was inevitable, really. As sure as death, taxes, and buying Taco Bell whilst drunk, the car enthusiast’s mind will turn to one car. You know the one. The one answer to everything.
Mounted the 200$-valued New-In-Box Nardi 5-speed wooden teardrop-shaped knob. It feels so damn classy. It’s not coming off; I’m going to use this knob for my daily driving to and from work and I’m going to use it the way it’s meant to be used rather than let it sit like a Treasure Hunt Hot Wheels or sell it from a…
This thing probably has a die-cast part or two, so it totally counts, right?? After more than 2 years of not buying a 1:1, I just couldn’t wait any longer. This week, I bought a new Mazda MX-5 Club!
