      It's cool as a custom car, but I hope they're not laboring under the notion that something based on 1930s aesthetics with exposed rivets and buckles and stuff is going to be remotely aero. It's going...

      Exactly.

      It's well known in the Miata world, if you run a non-airbag steering wheel you MUST disable the "force limiter" in the seat belt or, in a moderate crash, you're going to eat windshield...

      Now seen on every clapped out POS domestic car, usually in 4-6" tall versions instead of the original 2". I...

      How replaceable is it? It's only original once. They did make hundreds of thousands of '65 Mustangs, but it's finite. They're not making any more, Dynacorn bodies aside. You can restore one, but then...

      If I weere to buy another car right now I'd spend the $25 to get the Blue Ridge Parkway plates just to avoid the "L:heart:vers" plates.

      I love boring. I don't want mottos and **** on my plate....

      One of the new stores is a couple miles from my house... right next to my wife's work.

      I am so excited. Best part for me is that they bring NY food with them like Hoffmann sausages and salt...

      They look interesting. I'd rather have one of these than a Versa Note.

      I sold my first 240SX and crashed the second one. Basically irreplaceable, they were in far better shape than anything you can find now.

      I wonder why they used 3-point inertia reel belts on the Polaris. Since it's classed as a motorcycle, I wouldn't think its restraints would have to comply with FMVSS. I'd want harnesses.

      The real...

      Those are OK guides if you're buying a $10k Miata but priorities are a bit out of whack if you're shopping for a $2k one.

      The ONLY things I'd be worried about on a cheap cheap old Miata:

      I can't remember the last time I saw even a rough around the edges "driver" condition pre-'74 Camaro under 10 grand. Pre-'74 Camaros the epitome of NOT overlooked or underpriced.:P

      If anything,...

      I haven't seen a single one in a week. It's downright weird since Ross, McBanagon, and I haunt the same places.:sly:

      The CR-Z is going to be worse in this department.

      I've been daily driving an NB Miata for almost a decade. It'll lug around at low RPM all day long, and I have the older, smaller, much less...

      Where did you go to college? SU? RIT? a SUNY? I haven't seen that stuff in ages.

      Any E30 with an M50/S50/etc. is nice, but an M3 is glorious.:thumbup:

      Hondas are still more lego, though, the M50/S50 isn't a straightforward fit. :) you need to hodgepodge E34 M50 and E36 parts...

      I'm pretty sure I hated all that stuff already when I first joined this forum, when I was 19. :laugh:

      That's what gets me. We did this kind of stuff in high school music. No one was forced to drink until the ambulance came. In fact, there's no mention of alcohol or drugs in the whole report. No one...
