Default Christmas in .. Marchish?!

The Fedex and UPS guys were busy today:



Sorry I can't hold a measuring tape and a camera at the same time lol


Thanks to all who participated in my "what plate should I get" thread. MACH929 wins. Also, my ebay RFL valve finally failed..so I picked up another knock off Whats interesting, is that the "type-S" knock off even has the casting plate for where the "greddy" should be.



and finally.. my godspeed showed up!

Looks like they say Toyo on the side. They also look like Proxes 4 tread.

That's probably the coolest license plate I've ever seen... I may have to see if the Florida one isn't taken yet.

Edit: All avaliable in Florida as on right now:
PWRTOW8
PWR2W8
PWR2W8T
POWR2W8

I think I'll go out and get the license plate PWR2Y8S or maybe REV2Y8S. or perhaps Y8S2W8T a while before getting a custom plate. no wait... it's coming to m.

PL84Y8S.

I'm diggin the flares. I've been tempted by them but flares mean new wider wheels or spacers and long lug studs. but my miata can only handle one long stud.
