In other news, I went with a friend of mine to look at a Miata in Mcminnville tonight. He is stuck on a silver NA, not too many around. First the CL ad has no photos and very little info, 170,000 miles asking $3500. We get there, car is under a tarp parked in the grass on the side of tbe house where you cant see anything, not started or moved in over 6 months. Its filthy, doesn't have a battery so he grabs one from the garage. It starts right up but it was definitley rough. Paint missing in places, oil leaking around VC. So we got beer and Booker's at Mcmenamins instead of a Miata.
I don't people why people.don't put a little thought into how they present a car to sell.

Yeah I've been to CnC a few times. I guess I'm a summer fair weather attendee.

Miata hunting eh? Sounds fun. I wouldn't mind another or another..

We haven't organized anything in a long time. Actually I can't even remember the last significant meet. We used to do Sonic gatherings, did a few drives, Mcmenamins, etc..

Alright alright. Well hopefully it gets nice again soon!

Btw, this might be a dumb question but what the heck does the switch next to my center console do?

That's my car, not yours.

My dad installed it to a garage door opener. Just soldered some wires directly to the circuit board so he didn't have to ruffle through his stuffed center console.

In stock form that's where the power window switches go.

It was the best picture i could find on google of where the switch was. Never said it was mine.. I was simply pointing out the location of the on/off switch when norman asked me to be more specific.

Mymiataiswhite, if you go back to page 377, there's a few pics of my car with the white hardtop. But if your car is not Mazda white it may not match. Its a snugtop with defrost.

I'm guessing power antenna switch. One way it'll operate like stock, up/down with ignition (radio?) and the other way it won't go up at all. Or down if it's switched with it up.

Speaking of vinyl. Our latest track build at AR was about wrapped up yesterday. It came out really nice. Just waiting on the ever important windshield banner! There's gonna be a lot of hot M3's at the track this season coming out of AR. Another ridiculous build is about to start.

Donate to Lazarus?

But seriously might pick up that motor mount from you. Although I really want to run the hockey pucks I picked up.

Yeah, the bad crack in the dp happened too conveniently close to when I installed the motor mount. I'm almost positive it wasn't the only culprit, but I'm positive enough that I don't wanna run it with my pretty Artech stuff.
