If You’re Going to Park a Clean NA Miata at the Airport, Yes, We’re Probably Going to Take a Photo of It

Spotted at Daytona International Airport the other day: this silver NA Miata still wearing the original Daisy wheels. Why’d we stop to take a photo of it? Easy: Miata is always the answer.

Daisies look better without the hubcaps . . .

I think I still have a set.  They haven't been on my Miata in 18 years though.

Come to think about it, I might have a set, too. Might.

My first Miata had a very similar set of pinstripes.

It's funny, a picture of a clean NA always gets our social media audience going too.

I have two sets with perfectly good tires. I need a car that these would fit and be a +1 fitment.

The sad part is you can't GIVE daisies away. Unless you sell them for less than scrap prices

And in 20 years, we'll bid against each other to score a set, right?

I arrived in Irvine, CA a few years ago to help move my son and first stop was Costco and a mattress and I walked by a Miata.  Picture time.

And it has all of its paint.  A unicorn at this point.

The 90's were a time of ignorance spotting. The trend of paint job neglect had begun.
