That's the funniest thing I've read in a long time. Of course, given the membership here, perhaps it's apropos.

Sorry I missed the nose on the profile shot, I was just kinda pointing and shooting with the phone. I think Gesso may have some far better pics than I do.

I'm convinced he was doing it on purpose, to hide the sound of the ND.

It sounded........normal......nothing special at all. of course I got all of 3 seconds to listen to it til the rotard started waking the dead.




Also I made a point to say REALLY loudly "This car looks GOOD. Really GOOD. Any MNET idiot that thinks its ugly is a giant RETARD.

I kept repeating it loudly just to see the m.net feggets flinch and really hoping some of them would say something

I think this car is smashing.

I like the NA.
The NB2 "does it" for me.
The NC was meh. Happy face ftml.
This car "does it" for me again.

I'm still too much of a cheap bastard to buy one new though.

I'm really thinking about it.

I've been driving Miatas for 12 years now. I have 2. I enjoy the heck out of them. I mod, I flog, I put the top down, I smile . . . .

I've had other Ford re-badged Mazdas over the years and they've always been great cars.

I really feel like I should support Mazda on this one. It looks like they did a lot right . . . again.

When does the club sport come out?

I was actually kinda surprised to hear that so may people were interested in one. I lost count of how many people I overheard ask this same question.

So will it be be able to fit 275/40/17s under those fenders? I could really use the grip.

I'm waiting on the engine specs, but if it's 13:1 on the pistons the only boost options are e85 or aftermarket pistons for pump gas, no?

You can get away with higher than standard compression ratios on a turbo car with erect injection.

I thought erect injection was only for the owners?

Thanks for the pics EO2K. It looks great out in the sun, even the rear which is the only part I'm not all about.
