Big thanks to Jay McJay who took this photo at Pikes Peak International Raceway’s time attack series yesterday.
Much Saab, very Sonett, wow
sidenote: I never realized how tiny the hood is on these.
Here’s my car spotting from the past year or so.
My 323 GTX wishes you a very happy 3/23 day!
As seen from my commute to work this morning. It looked like a normal Colorado plate, not a military or diplomat plate.
According to Wikipedia, the NB Miata is 1680 mm wide. I run 225 tires, so that’s 450 mm of rubber. 450 divided by 1680 yields... 26.7%. More than a quarter of the car’s width is rubber meeting the road.
