I once farted riding next to Mike Huckabee on a roller coaster in Arkansas.
they always say goldens are the nicest dogs etc but I swear ours would walk up next to the couch when you’re relaxed and watching tv or something, and stand there for a few seconds, then walk away, all innocent looking. then the smell hits you in the face like a brick.
Shoot, farts are my preferred form of communication.
Farts are funny.
You did good, Stef!
What a great story! And the bonus for me is that, as someone whose daughters love to go for a ride in their dad’s 80s vintage oddity (and who like to help me work on it), I know exactly how blissful a daddy-daughter date in a cherished vehicle can be.
When an ad to enter a charity raffle for a fully restored twin-turbo 1994 Toyota Supra popped up on Daniel Shepard’s Facebook feed earlier this year, he put down $100 for six tickets. Shepard, and everyone else, lost the incredibly controversial raffle, but it didn’t take long for him to run into the car again.
NC is nice if you have never driven a real Miata. I want a ND Miata badly but I have a dilemma - I prefer the RF from outside and the roadster from inside.
Hey Alanis is pretty groovy, it’s just amusing to know it’s genetic.
About that whole learning how to drive in Miatas thing - that’s an utterly stupid thing to do. And hallelujah, bless your mom!
Thanks for getting that awkwardness out of the way.
one thing though - and know it’ll take years to recoup the up front cost difference of course - the ND can get basically 40mpg hwy
“Mom... has some type of freaky Miata radar...” Not meant to be creepy, but I <3 your mom.
I know a lot of people harp on the NC and I’m not disagreeing with them, but I think the NC is interesting in that it strikes a good balance between a carver and a cruiser. I also like its clean lines and soft shapes, though I do prefer the pre-facelift look.
The only real difference for my wife and I is never really wanting one (sans track duties) until now. 2017 RF Miata in our garage now, such a joy to drive - also there is plenty of room to bargain on these, do not let the sticker price steer you away.
I really want to drive mine now. But it’s raining in the Mitten. and I have a permaroadster.
I want a freaky Miata radar :(
Mom, the owner of the white 2008 Miata you see all over this post, has some type of freaky Miata radar. I got the car a day early, and she somehow found her way into my driveway before the person dropping it off had even left. I heard a loud wail from outside, and went to the front door.
I’ve been wanting to do “current-versus-last-gen” comparisons for ages, I hope you guys like this! Anything else in particular you might want to see in future Generation Gap-style reviews?
