Not a Miata, Joe.

Care to guess the make donor?

Ah, I see you're correct. I glanced at it only briefly (was averting my eyes, mostly) and the door shape looked Miata-ish. Didn't notice the kick-up aft the doors, however.

I was going to guess something in the neighborhood of a '70s vintage GM F-body car, but the crease in the door skin is missing.

You're unbelievable, Joe.

Yes, that's what it is..
Pretty much the first time ever I feel sorry for an F-body car.

No one will ever know whatever the hell those guys were thinking.

Huh.

I was kind of torn. The curved part at the rear of the doorskin is what made me think F-body, but you see in the picture y8s posted how there's a horizontal crease that runs all along the width of the door? The image you originally posted doesn't seem to show that- the door skin seems almost perfectly curved. That made me doubt my guess somewhat.

Just out of curiosity, did you grow up in an English-speaking country? I ask because, in addition to displaying a better grasp of English grammar than most Americans I know, you seem to have an extremely high level of awareness of elements of Anglo-American culture that I would not expect from someone who was raised in an environment where American or British media was not prevalent.

I was born and raised in Turkey.
I was blessed with an exceptional education here, and I took the first chance I had to move to the US.
That was way back in '85, when I was offered a scholarship to continue my studies.
I lived in the US for 20 years before I returned to Istanbul.

I have always been very much into cars, especially two seater convertibles, and I was the third person in line at the Mazda dealership when the Miata was about to be launched. (I used to drive a 1973 TR6 Triumph back then)

Turkey, especially Istanbul is fine and dandy, but there are certain things I miss. The car scene is one, for instance.
So, I latch on to this forum to make up for what I miss (pun intended) and keep up with what's going on over there.

That's pretty much me in a nutshell.

Sounds like you had a pretty exciting experience!

States vs Turkey? What are the huge differences?

Yeah, I've hardly been outside of Kansas, muchless the country.

I dont know if I had the year right. I just picked a side shot.

the shape of the perimeter of the door is what makes it look right. the door handle/lock looks wrong but, like the crease, they could have bondoed the shiit out of it.

Watching this video is a requirement on xda-developers if you want to register in the forums. Maybe we should add it too?

Thanks for that, oilstain. I probably wouldn't have had any reason to use Google Maps this weekend otherwise.
