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:
Here’s that picture of my rotted chassis rail I promised you a while back. It’s worse than it was last time I was under the car.
The Miata seems to have an oil leak, but the thing is so gunked up that I can’t tell where it’s coming from. I want to clean it off to diagnose the source, but I’ve not cleaned an engine before. What should I use and how should I use it?
There’s practically nothing that hasn’t been shoved into a Miata’s engine bay. K24's, V6's, K20's, rotary engines, turbos, superchargers, and of course, the LS V8. Like the original Mini, the Miata is a blank canvas that anyone and everyone can turn into their own piece of art. Supplying a lot of the paint is Flyin’…
(No, your eyes aren’t going funny, tweaked the background to make the high quality aero mods a little more visible)
So I drove with the top down for 45 minutes in 25 degree weather. Wasn’t that bad actually!
I’m looking for Christmas presents for my brother. What I’d really like to get him are a couple of t-shirts. One with an NB Miata and the other with a 3rd-gen Trans-Am. I’m having trouble finding anything that I’m willing give as a gift, but I figured y’all might have better sources for such apparel than I’ve been…
