I drove my 92 Miata down to the car wash and sprayed off all the dust from it sitting for three months. Then I drove it back and reparked it in the parkade at my building.

I washed it. Dried it. I'm entering it in a little local car show tomorrow. I did the same thing, for the first time, last Saturday. Didn't win anything, but had good fellowship with my fellow car club members. The Texas Roadrunners.

Had to have the top replaced. The two straps that control where the top folds as it is lowered had torn free of the top causing leaks. Dealer was no help at all stating that Mazda no longer made the convertible top for my 06 (hard to believe). Went to Coachcraft in Lexington KY. They did an excellent job.
Have been adding chrome accents from IL Motorsport and Moss Miata.

Good for you. I replaced the top on my 1992 three years ago. Got a local shop in Victoria BC, Tommy's Upholstery to do it. $1400. Really only the rear window had gone brown and was cracking but the top was 23 years old.

Never thought of dealers first, only upholstery companies.

Replaced a front driver's fender last summer.

Nothing constructive.

I went out and opened the hood and admired the area.

Today. Nothing. Nor Yesterday. On the 9th I drove it from Abilene TX to Texas Motor Speedway to see an Indy Car Race. I had the windows tinted the week before I went and that really made a difference in the air conditioning. I've been to several NASCAR races but never an Indy Car race. I've no desire to ever go to another Indy Car Race. The cars are so low to the ground and so fast that you really can't follow the race on the track. Of coarse you can see it on the Big Screen at the track. But. If I were going to do that, why spend the money? I can watch it on TV at home for free. After the race, I enjoyed driving back to Abilene TX.
