      Just me and the wife.

      Not in the picture is another Miata for autocross (the green one is retired, but the wife hasn't told me to de-sticker it yet) and a big ol pickemup truck to tow that thing...

      The driveway is really crowded now. The EP3 will be moving on once we take care of a few things on it.

      As far as I'm concerned, MG ceased to be after 1980. Whatever they're putting octagons on nowadays don't count.

      I suppose you could look at it that way. I didn't even include a picture of my EP3.

      OK we're getting down to crunch time, ankle surgery is a hair more than two weeks away. We've shelved the idea of anything really sporty (i.e. 2 door car) thinking of Metro parking and trying to get...

      The newest Corvette I've been in was a '73 and that was many years ago.

      When I said we're bumping up our budget, I'm talking going from $3K to $6K. I don't want to imagine the nightmare that a $6K...

      The latest idea is to bump the budget up so we can wind up with something a little newer and a little nicer. Then, when spring comes, we can decide whether we (she) prefers the automatic-equipped car...

      Post-weekend follow-up. The job was done on Saturday and went smoothly. It turns out that the clutch kit, which I never opened the box of till the old clutch was already out of the car, included a...

      I don't know what kind of club you run with, but SCCA doesn't do points. It has a rulebook that lists what is allowed to be done within each level of prep. If it's not listed, it's not allowed. Seems...

      OK I'll see if Rosenthal has a flywheel handy.

      I'd like to try a lightened flywheel but the autocross class I run in doesn't allow upgrades in this department.
    15. Replacing Miata clutch: do I have to replace flywheel too?

      A friend and I are going to be replacing the clutch in my 1990 Miata over the weekend. The existing clutch isn't in terrible shape and would probably be fine for street use. However, the car is being...

      Everybody needs a hobby. For some of us, it's chasing that next tenth of a second to win a $5 trophy. What's wrong with that?

      Not Spec Miata, but autocross Miata. I'm too cheap/old/wimpy to do real racing.

      Since it's summer she uses either a 2002 Civic Si or 2005 Mazdaspeed Miata for work-and-back duty.

      I found a $1500 automatic Miata locally, that's very tempting. It's too bad she can't get the...
    20. Ankle surgery soon, left foot will be in a boot. Buy automatic Miata or something practical?

      The wife will be undergoing ankle surgery in late September, after which her left foot will be in a protective boot for the next couple months.

      Her doctor says no clutching will be allowed during...
