I like the "paint it pink and tell them where to go" line! LMAO.
But, remember the old VW Beetle cabriolets? _Those_ (driven by a male)
were "gay" cars. Even think there was a movie with Ryan O'Neal and some
other guy, drove a pink VW Beetle cabrio, aaack, now I'm gonna be thinking
about that all day...
On the Miata, though, it really is safe. I had a '94R (should have kept
it, sold it to establish the "Ferrari Defense Fund") and although you kind
of fear for your life when driving next to an 18 wheeler, it has a
marvelous avoidance capability. Great sounds with a JR CAI and Borla
catback too...Anyway, thanks for all the fish (joke) and if a turbo won't
self destruct like my old '85 Lancer ES 2.2 turbo did, then maybe if I can
get the right pricing point I'll be getting a 1.8Q or maybe a TT Quattro.
Merry Christmas (smoke 'em if you got 'em)
Sand Springs, OK
