I want to hunt it down and give it much love. So sad!

Looks like the worlds smallest RV. Kinda looks like he may live in that.

I was being polite. Props for the chrome mirror, though.

I'm always impressed by how durable old Miatai are.  How long has it been since that poor thing has seen any mechanical love?  An oil change?  Fresh belts and hoses?  And yet there it is, chugging along like a Bolivian donkey hauling yet another load of product over the mountain for the infinite noses to the north.

Isn't that Clint Eastwood in there?!? I always thought he was more of a Ford Galaxie/Gran Torino guy.

I see there is also an XJ. Was this a GRM picture?

Hah that's my town!  In what's called the "Funk Zone"!  That Miata fits right in.

What state is the plate from? That doesn't look like any CA plate that I've seen, but I do live on the other side of the country from there. Colors make me think Nevada.

In reply to paranoid_android :

The rear wheel is a stock Mazda steelie...but what is on the front?  Only seven holes?  What kind of sorcery is this?  Everybody knows alloy wheels should have an odd number of spokes, but steelies should have an even number of holes.

I think you are right. Nevada is upside down with the blue on the bottom and the orangish color at the top.
