Not a Miata, but I have a CX9 and a Mazda 3.

Mrs drypenn once told me that I can buy a Miata, but she has to take the passenger seat away, ensuring that my silly idea of driving with the top down around pretty girls will never happen.
Tell her not to worry. I've tried it. My passenger seat remains empty.

Is your 3 a Speed3?

Most of the premium San Miguel products, though they are brewed here in Manila, are exported to Japan and Hong Kong . The description alone makes my mouth water:

"...a full-bodied dark lager with rich caramel tones made from roasted pilsen malt from Europe and other top quality ingredients. The right balance of bitterness and sweetness, and a creamy, frothy head entice drinkers to soak in its unique flavors. This bold, dark brew brims with the sweet taste of roasted malt..."
I'm going to check the local stores and see if I can find it.

Just a 3. I would have wanted (dreamed of) a rotary RX-8 though.

I have an idea, put bumper sticker that reads "Free Bacon if you ride with me!"

Last gen RX-7. That's the one to dream about.

You may end up with the wrong passengers then!

Yes, you're definitely right! I forgot the 7.

Five Reasons Why You Need To Buy An FD Mazda RX-7 Right Now

It's funny how he described the 8's rotary as a "pile of crap"

I've read a lot of bad things about the 1st gen 8's. I asked about them on the Miata site recently, and they said "If you get one, I hope you don't plan on driving it"

Made during the "Ford era" right?
You should have checked the steering wheel, it has probably got the "dorF" logo on it, just like Pentax and hociR

I'm not a drinker, and I have no idea what you are talking about.
Drink is the curse of the working class.

I'm ex-working class, so I'm safer now than I used to be when I was a non-drinker working class. Right?

Easy there.... Them's fightin' words. Ford makes some very reliable vehicles. Besides, Ford had no part in the RX vehicles. That remained all Mazda. Otherwise, we'd be seeing rotary Mustangs or something, lol.

Ford also helped Mazda get into the SUV market with the Mazda Tribute (Ford Escape). Didn't you say you had a CX9?

Dream about?

I've driven a couple of them. With the twin turbo setup.

Stupid fast.

And a couple guys that race in the club I race with have GT2 tube frame versions. One guy even went so far as to get a 3 rotor home market engine and drop it in his.

With a huge turbo.

Stupid, stupid stupid fast!

Nobody can touch him on the road course.

Nobody.

Not even the high horsepower GT1 V8 powered cars.

Yup. I love that CX-9. Drives like a bat out of hell. Unfortunately, drinks like Homer Simpson.

Some people chase it with another drink as well. Take a drink of Scotch immediately followed by a sip of coke.
Why?

Why ruin perfectly good scotch?

Why?
