      Not to threadjack, but the Miata makes people feel like a hero because it's an astonishingly good platform in a car that can be purchased for as little as $1500. I know people that have created very...

      Sounds like there was pretty poor strategy & management about content creation/scheduling post-paywall. I am in utter disbelief that they were hanging everything on 1-2 videos that CH might have made...

      Makes sense--heavier, AT (although a dual-clutch gearbox shouldn't be an impediment to acceleration, weight certainly is), smaller/taller/more comfort-biased wheel/tire setup.

      I couldn't agree...

      I'm comparing to the two cars I drive daily: a 2012 GTI, which is about the same size, and a '94 Miata R.

      It was overly sensitive to crosswinds, leaned more than I expected in corners, and was...

      The car of the future is right here. Zero emissions. Fast. Quiet. Drives itself, but can provide thrills if you want to be an active driver. Safe. Loaded with...

      I had one as a rental in Australia.

      I *hated* it. The engine + CVT was a terrible, terrible combination. Glacial acceleration complimented by a soundtrack reminiscent of an old blender trying to...

      Finding cars in that condition is nearly impossible anywhere, much less somewhere they used road salt.

      Personally I think the seller could throw that on ePay and get every bit of their asking...

      OMG Yes. Trade up to the S2000. Leave it stock-ish as far too many of these are being poorly modded and beat to ****.

      You used to be able to.

      If nothing else, call them and find out if you could do a quick photo in front of the mansion. Tell them it's for some special event. I'd bet they would OK it.

      Those are utterly stunning cars. That, and the 300SL Gullwing, are perhaps the pinnacle of coachbuilt Mercedes engineering and design.

      That car is fantastic, and your amazing family story adds...

      Love it. Were those 13's or 15's? I wonder where you can source tires for the original 13" rear size.

      Honestly, for a 10mi R/T I don't think any of the modern diesels are going to be optimal.

      That's not enough time for the DPF to fully reach operating temp. I could foresee even worse fuel economy...

      That's dubious, as NA Miata shocks (apart from '93 LE/R Package Bilsteins) are known to be worn out by 60-80k miles in most cases.

      Wheels are Rod Millen. Sold for Miata/Escort GT fitment in the early 1990's.

      hushypushy had a set for awhile, IIRC.

      Those...are very unique builds.

      Same.

      I was sold on a 335d M-Sport--until I read the major problems they all seem to suffer, many (if not most) by 50k miles.

      Clogged injectors, intake manifold removal/cleaning, and--in more...

      The Tribeca x2-powered monstrosity was on BaT, I believe.

      I recall looking at the welds on some of the frame work. They are...terrifying? Is that the word I'm looking for? Yes. Terrifying.

      Holy ****. That car is unreal.

      I do not care for del sols. But this car? Oh yes. That is one of the best Honda builds I've ever seen. Worth every bit of $9500.

      Wow. I love that front spoiler. Genius.

      I take it the OZ's are off the car due to the spacer self-destructing?
