I don't get why people take a hard top, the thing meant to make a 15 year old water resestitant car water proof, and cut a big hole in it to make it water resistant again. ITS A CONVERTIBLE. You want sun? take the roof off dammit.

As much work that was put into this car, it still is a tasteless pos.

Do the people at miata.net have a strange sense of humor, or are they really that stupid?

Err, what? You couldn't take 5 minutes to proofread your little essay?

My plan: to take a new Miata, with its already beautiful 50-60s European inspired design and add my own touches of "Anglofication".
Actually, we already have a word for that -- it's "anglicization."

Honestly, it's just depressing looking at that car and thinking about how much money was spent.

Interestingly, read through that article about the car (overall I don't like it) but noticed that Ed Hanson, the guy who did his exhaust, is the guy Goodwin Racing referred me to for custom exhausts and whom I spoke to earlier today and will have doing my custom exhaust later this week.... small world.

So you'll be requesting the "quadzilla" center mounted exhaust?
