Does anyone else look through old brochures of their vehicle generation and see what neat options were available back then? I’m looking at ones for Miatas between ‘01 and ‘05, the NB2 generation. Here’re three I found interesting:
I love snow. The first snowfall of the year is one of my favorite things and I’m always sad to see Winter leave. But even for me, an inch of snow on April 19th is a little unsettling.
Bonus points if you get my reference in the title.
I’m a simple man. Red miatas make me happy.
Miata Is Always The Answer
I apologize for the bad sound capture. To quote the source where I got this video from, Panic Motorsports, “And this, kiddies, is why you don’t skimp on safety gear!”
I knew I could take it out, but I guess I am perverse.
Nudged a concrete pole at walking speed while backing into a parking space this morning. I hate that space. I scraped a wheel on the adjacent curb and now this. It’s almost like I need to rely on what’s going on around me instead of preconceived notions of how things should be.
Update: after speaking with some people from fab9, pci, and a local import race shop (which I just found out was here!); I went with Sparco sprints on PCI one piece super low mount. Super excited. Only caveat is that the PCI will only be useful with the Sparco seat, but that is what I would expect with a custom mount.
Have so many plans for Ari, going into this spring season. This time around it was a few things. First things first though, to the a** holes who couldn’t properly replace my heater core hoses: f*** you. Really, I don’t like you. Who works on someone’s car, mangles the copper housing going to the heater core, slaps…
Just noticed it was disconnected and unsure if maybe it was to the now deleted factory alarm (only NA Miata to have one) or maybe to my airbag (which the light has been on for a week or so after going off and on). I literally have no idea, but it’s going through my fire wall and appears to be electrical... Anybody…
Going on a road trip and looking for suggestions.
“It’s just one last bump before spring,”she said. “Ok,” I thought sarcastically to myself. We all know that’s not gonna happen.
Finally got around to replacing the leaky CAS O-Ring today. Had my friend help me because I had never used a timing light before. Turns out it’s really easy. Got the new Vitton O-ring on with some difficulty, as the CAS is so close to the firewall. Advanced the timing to 14 degrees. It’s supposed to increase (if…
Went to Mazda to get a key replacement. Had to park next to them. Forgot my cars birthday was in January of ‘96... sorry Ari.
After many years of driving with a spare in all my cars and never needing to use it, aside from when I had my wheel reshaped last year... I removed it to save what seems between 30 and 40lbs.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day Oppo. Had amazing weather the last couple days. Spring is so close and it has me making all kinds of plans for getting Arisu (my car) ready for an amazing spring/summer/fall of outdoor adventures.
Which one of you does this driveway belong to? Also this house with a pair of matching red NC’s in the driveway was literally right across the street.
So I saw this truck with 1951 plates, like mine, except I have to have the 52' tag on the 51' plate, his is an actual 51 (You have to use a 51' plate through 54' with a tag that just changes the year). I found this Miata that is owned by a guy that apparently has Loti/Lotuses. I hiked with my wife and dog at Roy’s…
A lot of people say these are great tow hooks. Those people are wrong. People of the internet: Stop saying things you only believe to be true. Stop it! *Update: I am now finding that most actual tow hooks are also pretty weak.*
