Drove my 94 miata today to make sure it is good to get sold to my brother this weekend. It feels faster than my 2001...

Could just be the lightweight flywheel, and the fact that the windows were open on the highways because no A/C, but I still think it is a bit faster.

I realized the neglected $200 SL1 I bought over 2 years ago still has the same half tank of gas that was in it when I brought it home. It's been a runner this whole time I just haven't driven it. If it's not raining too bad when I get home I think I'm going to clean the interior out and take the broken hubcaps back off.

The "butt-o-meter" feel of the early cars is *so* awesome, But part of the feeling of speed is that it's less isolated from the road, soundproofed, etc. 

There *is* one way to be sure, though... ;)

Umm.  I traded away the monster miata a few months ago.  The kid who got it didn't really like it for various reasons and sold it.....to a guy who had been interested in it back when it was mine.  He just texted me that he was driving it to town and either the motor or transmission locked up. surprise

I feel bad for him but, I'm also really glad it isn't my problem.

I may have made an unwise purchase.  Only peripherally car related.

So we can assume it’s not a V8 Miata with unknown catastrophic internal issues?

I was sitting in traffic thinking a f250/350 diesel caged with a tube rear end no bed and wide 5's would be pretty awesome.

Im kind of in love with giant diesel turbos.... Even if I can only shave a few hundred pounds off, I can add a tune with ~1000ft lbs of torque?! And I want a stupid car, and auto auctions are bad.... Now I dont know that I can make a stick axle turn worth a poop tho! Even more hilarious in a crew cab?

Sometimes it helps to remember that every corpse on Everest was once a motivated and ambitious person. Lazy saves lives.

Dumpster fires are bad news. Lots of stuff hides in there. And once they're out, we have to pull everything apart. Please don't.

I’m probably the only person happy to go to meetings. For almost two hours my radio is off and I can’t answer my phone.
