We went to a Sebring kickoff party in Orlando, and took our Miata. It was at home among Mazda race cars.

We also posted our Porsche 962 vs. Spec Miata comparison.

Great pics!!! I was planning on working on my Mustang, but my truck suddenly decided it needed rear brakes.
I also watched the Sebring race, but it was a yawner. I'm sure it was much better in person!!

Patiently waiting for my timing belt/water pump parts to arrive for the Miata. Keith, WHEN?!?

I like the comparsion, too! It always a good re-read.

Hey, once they leave here they're out of my hands!

Last weekend I was at a party in Florida. Man, there were some loud speeding cars in that area. The cops should do something. It got in the way of the party.

I think the water pump bearing is making some noise; that's my concern.
