100% agree! I allways thought it odd that the guy with a brand new car gets clean car of the month... seems like a 86 rx7 or a 510 would deserve it more.

miata of the month is cool when its like a spec miata or some other racing car, or even a poorly styled car but lots of hands on work, but the guy who bought it brand new in 89 and kept it doesnt really seem like that big of an accomplishment to me.

Well I suggest you get a wood grain dash kit to offset the katskinz seat covers to better balance the 10000 dollars so it will compliment the 13'' panasports when you autocross next week.

I appreciate that - and I guess I shouldnt bag his car. However with so many really neat Miatas out there (regardless of their style -show and shine, track, whatever) - they can find beter examples that something with stickers on it.

OH and if you have anything larger than 15" wheels you get slammed for it (I remember getting flamed for the 17's all the time) and anything that isn't pre-*******-engineered or approved by Mazda is a waste of time and money

what a bunch of **** faces

I dont think 17's on a miata look retarded at all. I run 17's on my miata and I get compliments on the look at all times. As far as functionality, the rims are 17 lbs each.

I think it's more relative to how jacked up the particular miata is sitting.

Well, yeah, having the 4x4 look AND 17" wheels certainly does make things worse.

But, the Miata has a very short body, when viewed in profile. It just doesn't lend itself to tall wheels; they make it look all out of proportion and "catty-wompuss." In fact, the 240SX is another car like this. It's got a very slim silhouette that looks like a stagecoach with 17" or greater wheels.

That reminds me, next time I go to St. Pete to visit some buddies of mine, we should meet up somewhere. I was actually down in the Palm Harbor (isn't that where you are?) area for a friend's bachelor party not too terribly long ago.
