I am almost positive the interior of the car is tan.

Here is the link to the car. I should be paying for it tomorrow and hopefully getting it towed home on Saturday. I am paying a bit more then I would like for it, but the seller is recording all the other people who have sent him messages looking for parts and giving that list to me. So I should be able to sell off enough of it to make the purchase much easier to stomach.

I have literally spent the entire morning watching YouTube videos on a 98" TV under different configurations, waiting for it to fail, documenting the failures, then power-cycling it and starting over.

At one point, I got really bored and started playing Super Mario Brothers on the TV. That drew an audience, which is sad because I've discovered that it's hard to play old NES games without a proper controller.

Who wouldn't pay an extra $4k for "a plethora of tasteful accessories"?

Having re-read the posting, it occurs to me that I actually know that guy, and have seen his car. Mark is a member of the San Diego miata club, and I've gone on a couple of weekend runs through the mountains with them.

I most remember being taken aback by the sheer number of ***** plastered on the vehicle when I saw it in person.

(I hadn't noticed the plastic brake caliper covers at the time. Didn't even know that was a thing.)

Crappy sleep because I've been in pain for the last month, otherwise I sleep fine. The narcos just take the edge off, and after the first I took half of one and then only for a couple days. I've not really looked into the melatonin but if it continues to bug me, I shall do so. Thanks!

Wife yelled at me for cleaning the house yesterday, thats new

The San Diego Miata Club is the biggest bunch of wine and cheesers I have ever seen in my entire life. Gesso and I wandered through their pack of smug at the last M@MRLS even and just could not help laughing. I think its a requirement that you own a set of those caliper covers in order to join that particular club.

That's the thing that bugs me about car clubs. If you identify with one you will always be associated with "those types of people." That's probably why we all hang around here at MT

Mark is a giant baby. His anger about this "stinking shark fin" makes me seriously giddy. Its been awhile since I trolled M.net, I may need to start paying closer attention.

If I recall, when those caliper covers came out, they were defended by certain individuals (Mark Booth may have been one) who claimed they were functional items because:

1. They improved the appearance by blocking the spread of brake dust, and
2. They acted as heat sinks thus keeping the brakes cooler.

So, a firm connection to reality is not a strength here.

I will paypal someone $20 to put a magnetic shark fin on the back of Mark's NB. I will need pictures of it there and the look on his face when he notices.

I'm going to take off my mod hat for a moment, eschew my usual policy of discouraging inter-forum warfare, and dare someone to post this image in Mark's thread where he's bitching about the little antenna.

Would Mark Booth even notice the shark fin under a blinding chrome luggage rack?
