yeah but mine was ugly! and it started to rust.

Sometimes I start to really hate this place and you people... then a thread like this comes along and I remember why I stay. MT, 10% Miata, 90% random asshattery.

Seems like a pretty good ratio to me.

I'm serious, actually. Allow me to wax philosophical for a moment:

We drive old cars. My car is old enough to purchase liquor in every state, and in 3 more years it will be eligible to run for Congress. The very youngest of the original-platform cars is seven years old.

Consequently, to paraphrase the June, 1899 issue of Punch Magazine (commonly mis-attributed to Charles H. Duell), pretty much everything of consequence which can be said about these cars has been said.

So what's left to make a forum about old cars of interest? Well, cat pictures for one thing. And, to a lesser extent, Ponies.


Don't believe me? Try this simple test. Look closely at both of the following quotes, and tell me which one is more likely to interest you in becoming a member of a hypothetical web forum:



Example A:

It came with a removable cup holder with a notch for a cup handle, That seemed like a perfect way to spill coffee all over the interior, so---
I cut off the bottom with a small cut-off wheel and glued a plastic disc painted flat black in the bottom. The disc (picture 1) came from Ace Hardware and is used to protect the wall from flying door handles. I glued the badge to the disc (picture 2) and fitted it in the console (picture 3). It's not beautiful but now I can drink Snapple while admiring my (brass) badge.
All the best,
Smurfy (Buzz)

This is why I should wander in to more threads that seem to have no relevance to my interests.

Couldn't find the thread. Searched back through a good 8 pages of results on this site and through The Googles.

I'm sure there's some special key-word that would pull it up as the first result, but i couldn't figure it out because dumbz. Figured this was better than creating a new thread.
