Fake news.

First decade ended 1999 with the 10AE.
2000 had the SE, literally named for special edition.
2001 had the SE in BRG with wood trim.
02 SE in titanium gray (and yellow? Or was that 03?)
03 Shinsen
04 and 05 MSM, and probably something else nobody cares about.

Things slowed down with the NC, but there were special editions in '06 I think with red leather interiors. There were some later special edtions, like in 2012 when they did the ones with black wheels and black hardtop which eventually basically became the club versions.

2015 25th anniversary car
2016 launch edition
2019 30th anniversary edition

Yeah. Fake news.

So by first decade "or so" you meant first three decades?

Oh, sorry, how could I have misunderstood that?

Just correcting your correction amigo. Might as well take it to 11.

More special editions to come. For now, I love this one.

Yep. '19 club in ceramic. Ceramic took a while to grow on me, but it's a unique paint.

Same. It's a great color for being a non-color.

Well my first impression is that it's a little too refined as compared to what I'm used to. I stalled it at a stop sign twice yesterday because I couldn't hear the engine or feel the clutch engagement. A GWR super street muffler is in my future. Just, ya know, as soon as I sell a kidney or something.

Well, the time has come to execute my 2016 plan. I don't even need to do #5 anymore -- Mazda did it for me and I can keep the warranty.

But, geez, it's hard to find a regular, soft-top Sport model.

7 sport manuals in socal right now according to Mazda USA's inventory search tool. I always just use 90805 to search socal.

Going to go with an OEM LSD or an OS Giken or similar?

I think I'm going to wait until this fall and pick up a GT-S, there is only like an 8lb weight penalty over the Club and it has a thicker top which will be nice since it will be a dual-duty car.

I'm thinking the OEM LSD. I think Emilio was happy with that on his orange GT. But OS Giken is a simple alternative if the OEM proves hard to find.

There are Sports around here too. They are all either white or black, and far less numerous than the upscale models. The price delta gives a lot of money to buy the bits I actually want.
