Put on 30k miles in one year and two days. To celebrate the first time I’ve gone a whole year without breaking down I did a little donut.
Almost spent $200 on a visor because it was covered under warranty, then it wasn’t, then it was again.
Im at the Portland GP this weekend and the Global MX-5 Cup was one of the support races.
Have damage to show for it.
Hint: there’s a rusted out 01 MX-5 SE sitting in my back yard with a serviceable aluminum 1.8L DOHC I4 engine, close-ratio 6-speed manual transmission, and Torsen LSD.
I’d been doing some sprint events, out on the track aiming for ever faster laptimes, but my friends insisted I get involved in the Peter Hall Memorial Six Hour, down at Mallala Motorsports Park in South Australia.
Outside of the Mazda factories and dockside car parks, I think I might well live in the centre of the MX-5 universe. In a short walk of 1.5 miles, I’ve seen about 12 parked roadside or on driveways. I know there are at least another 5 on other roads nearby, and that’s a conservative estimate.
I knew that the local Mazda dealer imports Mitsuokas, so... nice weather... time for a ride. In the flesh, the Himiko looked better than I thought it would. Still not-quite-right, but better. Certainly wouldn’t enjoy pulling out of t-junctions.
... posting pretty pictures from last weekend to cheer myself up.
Only has taken me 8 months to do it.
Couple of questions after the jump if oppo can spare the time.
This is said answer.
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.
I’m a simple man. Red miatas make me happy.
Miata Is Always The Answer
...and I’m slower. Way slower.
To celebrate happy motoring heres every time I posted about the car before buying one. I really wanted a Miata.
Still have some areas that need work, but progress has been made. Still enjoying my new Huion tablet.
So it’s time for a new illustration! Behold the lifted Blobata. (This is the rough-in stage, it’ll clean up from here.) As for my new graphics tablet:
