Is she a Goth?

tell her you will sell the miata if she gives you a ******* a day every day for 5 years. but first she has to do it for the first 6 months to prove she's committed.

incidentally, pics of wife so we can really give our opinions.

My wife's list.

Too small to be safe.
Stinks of age and exhaust.
Rides too rough.
Seats aren't comfortable.
It's not dignified or respectable. (She wishes I'd get a Boxster or the like)
Too loud.
It's an old tiny crapbox.

I've been driving it for a couple years now. 20K+ miles boosted. Maybe 15 track days. No plans on giving it or her up. I like it, it's fun for me, doesn't matter that she doesn't like it. If we need to go somewhere together we use her car. Problem solved.

Just tell your wife it could be worse, you could be into really expensive cars other women would admire. With the Miata, you have guys hitting on you.

Every gf, or girl for that matter that has been in the miata loves it. I'm lucky I guess cause I would much rather go for top down rides with my girl than alone.

I've heard complaints over the years from girl and guy passengers, but its usually only when the ****** breaks down in the middle of nowhere and I have to pull out my tools and have them hold a flashlight.

My new gf however hasn't even seen the miata yet. I'm still not 100% sure whats she's going to think about it. I have a feeling she might be the first to hate it. Probably just jinxed myself.

This is my situation exactly. Ever since I blew it up in June, I have been spending a lot of time on the car trying to get it back running. I built a motor and put it in the car in 2.5 months. Having never built a motor before, I was pretty proud to get it all done in that time. She also complains about the loud exhaust.

When I first got my WRX, there was a whining noise almost every time I got into boost.

Was able to determine that it was coming from the passenger side.

Tried to fix it, but couldn't make her shut up. Broke up with her.

When a ho in the passenger seat can't shut up, you gotta cell-phone whip a bitch like Naomi Campbell on her Mexican maid.

Everyone I know hates my car on the street. I drive normally because a nasty ticket will cost me a job, and people think its cheap and should be a Ferrari or something. I really like watching them try to pull the door handle off on the track though. I can't wait to get an instructor in the car at TWS:
"So this car has a turbo?"
-Yes, a little one.
"How much power does it make?"
-I don't know, enough to put you in the seat...lol.
They probably won't ask about the big nasty brakes, or suspension...the really scary part.

^ oh...that kills me!


My wife isn't a big fan of the Miata...but she puts up with it because she knows I enjoy it. She'll hop in every other weekend when we can leave the little one behind, although that hasn't happened recently since I don't have a passenger seat.

She never worried about what I did with it since she HAD her own car. Now that we're down to the family wagon and the Miata she has a little more say in how the build goes...so it's going to get an interior, passenger seat and heater again regardless of how awesome the handling is right now.

Her only other gripes are the usual money and time stuff...but I usually wake up at the butt-crack of dawn on Sundays to spend the morning in the garage, and she still cooks me an awesome Waffle House style breakfast as long as I shut the garage shortly thereafter.


I've weighed the cost of divorce vs. increased project spending...and I don't see any benefit. Besides...I'd miss steak n' bj day.

My g/f drives a miata :-D. She didn't like it when it had no cat and no turbo. Turbo muffled it, its fast, then she was back to liking it .

My wife doesnt hate my car, but she has only ridden in it maybe 10 times in 6 years. She has her Mini Cooper and loves it. Everything else to her is just a car, and doesn't measure up.

She is happy, and I can do whatever I want to my car without questions being asked.

Oh, I forgot to add - why is your wife in the passenger seat of your car. Last I checked, miatas did not come equipped with kitchens.

Why is divorce so expensive?


































...because it's worth it.

Oldie but goodie.

Our IT manager has payed for three of them...he doesn't regret a single one. He's only married to his current wife just to spite his ex who would've cashed in on his insurance if he croaked since they were married more than 10yrs.


Atleast once a week I ask myself if I seriously feel I'll ever end up divorcing my wife. The day I answer yes I'll just do it that day, while it's as cheap as it'll ever get.

I love my family though.




Rushin...

On that interior funk...seriously...RIP IT ALL OUT!

I just pulled everything out, cleaned the tub, cleaned (hosed) out all the HVAC, and am putting in reflectix and new carpet. It already smells loads better, and this is the first Miata project my wife is actually excited about.

She's springin' for a Momo wheel to top it all off. While you're in there you can pull all the airbag sensors, compute and harness, and anything else you think you don't need.


Honestly...you would not believe the **** that lives underneath your carpet. I think the culprits are the grommets in the floor, and clogged drains in the rockers. Mine used to get soaked in the rain.
