Default mx03tb You're not alone!

Flyin miata has seen the same thing that mx03tb did. A piston sideways in the bore!

Holy crap I missed that one when it first came around.
Sorry I haven't been around guys, life has been really tough on me lately. The car hasn't been running so no sideways pistons for me though.

I remember the thread, but don't recall the picture at all.

Rather amusing picture, though I doubt I would find it funny if it was my 70k mile block that was pictured.
