When I read Torch’s old article about putting Steve Buscemi’s eyes on cars, it bugged me that he had used the popup-lights on the Miata as eyes. To me, the indicators were always the eyes in the face of the NA Miata, and particularly if we’re talking about Buscemi eyes. I decided that if you want something pointless done properly, you should do it yourself.

Stumbling upon an area where I obviously have unparallelled talent felt great, and it prompted me to create similar faces for the later generations of Miatas as well.

Where better to turn to in order to show off useless talents in the hope of impressing strangers than Reddit? So I uploaded my creations to the /r/miata subreddit, where my fellow Miata-owners responded with requests for facializing (yes, that’s the verb I’m going to choose) their own cars. For your pleasure, horror or arousal, I’ve decided to share them with Oppo.

And to top it all off (and hopefully forget some of the NC nightmares), my buddy’s friendly Lotus Elise.

What do you think, Oppo? Any other cars that should be given the breath of life?
