Yes, we do have those Festivas. (Or maybe I just remember them from when I lived in Germany)

The mailbox house was what puzzled me when it came to the goal.

Do you get to drive the Miatas in the winter, or do they salt your roads there?

Really clean looking '95. Not a fan of the wheels or the dual exhaust, but to each their own. Looks like a nice car.

Which makes me think of:

Oh yeah, they spew that salt **** everywhere. I drove my '95 MX-5 one winter two years ago, resulting in cracks in the rear arches and a completely rusty brown suspension. I ended up behind this truck a couple of times during winter.

Thanks, the rims are being replaced with something lighter and not fake next year. I'm wishing for 6UL's, but they seem to be nearly impossible to get a hold of. Whatever wheels I end up with, they'll be fitted with Toyo R888's when the summer arrives again in 6 months.

I'm happy we don't have the Festiva here, looks like a badly copied and cheaper version of the Fiesta. There are some cool Fiesta's out there though.

Those two Fiestas are really cool, especially that Zetec powered one. (that IS a Zetec, isn't it?)

Joe, I have no words.

That IS correct!


Lookin' good, sixshooter! Does every thread on this forum end up being off topic, btw? I thought this forum was about how to make Miatas go fast, lol.

Yes, all of them. That is why when searching for answers to questions I never give much thought to what the title of the thread is about.

Haha, if I understand this correctly, this thread lacks at least an eggplant!

Well, you typically only get eggplanted if you're totally irrelevant, which you aren't. But that's a cute eggplant.

Not just irrelevant, but having brainpower and thought processes comparable to an eggplant.

I used to have that toy when I was a kid. It was a McDonald's Fraggle Rock Happy Meal toy.

Speaking of kids toys, did any of you guys have the Evil Knievel motorcycle toy. You put the toy in the starting ramp thing and spin the handle as fast as you could and the bike would take off? Those were cool.

No, but I do remember being a friend's house where they had HBO, and watching Fraggle Rock.

Sidebar:

Remember that epic "Starship" HBO intro that they used in the early 80s?





Wait... That's not right.





I always thought that when the circled around and into the O at the end, that it was deliberately made to look like the upper drum assembly (head) of a videotape machine.

I still cling to this belief.




Anyway, it's so cool how they did stuff like this without CG:
