Default Miata World Record!

Anyone else see this? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V6G8r...watch_response

In Germany (9/18/10) they had a gathering to break a Guiness world record of the most cars passing through a tollbooth continuously. They could only have a maximum of 2 car lengths between them. The previous record of 249 was held in New Zealand (not sure of car). The record is now 459!

Props to our European brothers!

Lots of "style bars". They're like stick on fake hood scoops...why would you waste the money? Pretty cool video though, the NC's are really growing on me...

No not miataturbo.net

Miata.net

The slightly more flamboyant site.

Still were a few clean looking cars and there... and I agree, NC's are starting to look better and better to me too.

M.net could never pull that off, just two car lengths between them would be far to dangerous for most people over there. Can't be driving all crazy now can we kids?
