OK, let's see'em. Post some pics of either your other rides or vehicles you had in the past.

1993 MX-5 Roadster a.k.a. Miata

Excuse the eyes. I got it right when the movie Cars was in theaters, kids freaked out. It was cool.


Hardtop always looks good on it



the difference in size is just funny


just cleaned the inside, cup holder isn't dirty....that's a quarter smile


So your cruising through a packed parking lot and you spot the perfect parking space. You zoom to it in fear that someone else will take it. You just about there.....and then you see the Miata.  lmfao  hahaha small cars

It's a good unit of measurement too. If you can fit in it, you can fit in anything pretty much. Cramped parking spaces are a thing of the past. Costs only $20 to fuel up and parts are cheap. I think I'll keep her. wink

If I ever find any pics of my old Jeep I'll post em.

I'm one of the good ones. I'll try to line up with the rear of the cars.

I was at the movies and this happened to me in the Riv with an older Accord in the spot. I was somewhat impressed, I didn't know they were that compact.

Dammit Andy, quit showin' off that Miata!!

How many miles did it have on it? 50k? And what'd you pay for it? 5k? Do you like it?

Please Grandpa Andy, tells us the story AGAIN! ...and again, and again, and again....

Notice the dual exhaust in picture 3. It sounded so good and the best part is it sounded like a v8 and not a rice burner....

I plan on putting the same setup on the rivi once I get around to it...

I've always liked Cutlass. You don't see many in that condition either. I hated to see the Oldsmobile line killed.

Yeah... i loved the car but it started getting a lot of small problems and the carb needed a rebuild... if i didn't find my riv i was just gonna fix it up more but i drove the riv and knew i had to have one... the riv was the only other thing i'd like for a d.d... i love comfy , american coupes.

Bought one because it was affordable, fun to drive, good on gas, and low miles. Bought the second one as a parts car, but decided it was worth fixing, so fixed it up and painted it a different color. Not the most manly of colors, but that's why "she" drives it most of the time!

Actually found the old pictures of the '92 Celica GT I got when I was 15. Wish I had some before the cleaning to show how much work I put into cleaning it up, but this is how it looked when we sold it.


You should've seen all the stickers on the back of this thing. A hair blower and some patience got rid of all that nasty crap.

In this one you can see a bit of the Riv in the background when it was still my dad's car. Can you even tell the mirror on the driver side of the Celica is glued on? It made some whistling when you drove down the road but it was better than the duck tape the lady we bought it from had it held on there with...




I shampooed and vacuumed the hell out of this car. The brown stains you can still sort of see on the floor were a lot nastier before I cleaned it and it looked like someone took a bag of leaves and dumped them in the floor. The radio was all screwed up and I was lucky enough at the first audio dealer (Sells all the subwoofers, not a junkyard) happened to have a Toyota radio out of another car that fit exactly and worked perfectly and got it for $5 or $10. Couldn't believe it!

Oh and the raggedy Ford you see in the last picture is the POS Five Hundred rental car we had when the GTP was wrecked (Got hit in the driver side door/fender). The last Ford that would be in our driveway as our personal car was that '96 Sable LS. I'll look around and see if I can find where all the other old cars we had were. We had a lot of really clean cars, mostly because my dad is and was so picky on the cars he'd buy and has taught me to be the same.

lol, that's like falling for the Fiero Ferrari kit. Easy to tell once you hear and see the motor. May look like a Ferrari but it is no where near the power of one! The Lambo one is another cheesy one, the Ferrari is somewhat close but the Lambo one really doesn't look quite right.
