You sound like you want it to die. It’s the 4th best selling sports car behind the 3 muscle cars with the 911 right on its heels. I’m not some novice who doesn’t know that the 911 has huge margins, but the Miata probably is bad there either. The average out the door price of a Miata is well into the $30s. It’s not a $2… Read more

This article is so bad that many of the comments are a better read than the actual post. Extremist takes like this are what is wrong with our country.
Call me a cynic, but this will establish the NIMBY ARMY. This is the city that banned electric scooters almost immediately. This will basically establish a city-wide HOA that will probably end up fining people for doing non-conforming behavior like washing their car.
Personally, I think this is a problem of “it worked fine for 24 years, what’s going to stop it from going 25?” and not even bothering to look at things like fuel lines. These were designed for very little maintenance and I imagine most post offices don’t have someone on staff to even check it over every once in a… Read more
