AMA about my ND, 1 year and 30,000 miles later.  

Milky Oct 03, 2018. 16 comments

Put on 30k miles in one year and two days. To celebrate the first time I’ve gone a whole year without breaking down I did a little donut.

I got the top down at least once a month, yes even in February in Michigan. Averaged 32 mpg according to the car (I’ve checked it a few times to make sure its close to accurate). Space has been an issue only a couple times, like when transporting tires.

Still loving this thing. Its peppy, the interior is lovely place to spend time and the manual is great.

Look at this stubby tall boy. Too bad its only going to the Middle East.

Cheap car/paint, week old wash, bird poop on it and to clarify, unedited iPhone photo. It just pops. Really happy I waited for this one instead of jumping on a black one for sale. Also, remember the Challenger/Chargers shutting down a Detroit highway? This park is where they went the next night.

Was so upset I had to check if it was factory (it is) and then see how much it cost. Pulled into the GM HQ but I looked, it wasn’t a “M” plate.

Miata is always the answer? What do you do when you quit your job? Obviously spend a week plus in a heat wave in Davis,CA tearing apart not 1, but 2 Miatas! Started off helping the boyfriend finish his friend’s Miata that they did a clutch job in and then we found needed a drive shaft and engine mounts.Now we...

Ari Got Light Yesterday Ari Got Light Yesterday

I’ve always thought Ari looked like a mini FD with her hardtop on. Funny I ended up behind a similar blue FD in the shop with a blown turbo. I think it’s midnight blue though, where as mine is starlight blue mica. A difference that can only be seen when she’s clean and in the right lighting. I’ve talked...

Prop Me Up - More Miata Posting Prop Me Up - More Miata Posting

It’s been a minute since I had a car with hood struts from the factory. I don’t do a ton of poking around under the hood so it’s not a make or break thing, but I had it on my want list to swap the hood prop out on the ND for struts. So over the weekend that is what...

The new Miata cleaned up nice The new Miata cleaned up nice

Had some free time to replace the clutch hydraulics and give the ‘94 a light detail. Still surprises me how decent the paint is after 200k miles. There is some light swirl scratches all over, but she looks great outside of about 5 feet. What is there should clean up pretty well with a bit of polish. Finally got...

Arisu Topless Life Arisu Topless Life

Arisu and I have not had the typical convertible Miata life that many have come to associate with the little Roadsters. When I bought her, the factory soft top had a window that was ripped at the seams. I didn’t really care because I wasn’t buying a Miata for its convertibility. Even so I planned to have it fixed...

I just impulse bought a Miata, AMA I just impulse bought a Miata, AMA

My dad is visiting and we were watching old top gear when I saw the ad. After finishing the episode I asked “do you want to go buy a car?” “A car?” “Yeah” “You mean tomorrow?”“They’re free now”So we went out and bought a Miata. I think he believes I might have a problem. Related note, first time buying...

Pizza Planet Delivery Yata Pizza Planet Delivery Yata

Just playing around, could make a fun theme. Toss the little aliens on the center caps, rocket ship antenna topper, the “YO” slapped on the back somewhere. Maybe a few other little odds and ends to tie it all together. And the Solo Cup Splash because why not look at played out ideas 

More Miata LED Posting More Miata LED Posting

Finished the last of the blinker swapping over the weekend. Learned a little more and broke my two-ish year streak of problem free car projects Quick recap - I put in sequential taillight LEDs and swapped for LED sidemarkers recently. That left the orange bulbs hanging in the front to be replaced! Which is where catastrophe hit. The bulb fell...

Rice or Nice: Miata Mats Rice or Nice: Miata Mats

New mats from P2M sent to me for the @Boring.Cars Miata I’ve wanted some fun mats for bit now. I was initially looking at going a custom route because I wanted to get something just ever so less plain black in the car (there’s a bit of red stitching in the seats so I was thinking of trying to tie that...
