    Italian cars scare me. I have nightmares of having to adjust 169 valves on the same engine!

    Rumor has it that one of our members is getting one, and hopes to have it at Buttonwillow in September. I am told that I might even get to take it out for a session! 169 valves and all!

    No. Road and Track weighed US spec car at 2437lbs with base wheels and no muffler. Didn't really change acceleration numbers much.

    I have been considering a 4C. It's 200lbs heavier and has 50 less hp than my spyder. The 4c looks fantastic but I'm not sold on reliability compared to an exige or Cayman.

    Waiting to see what the new miata looks like.

    I'm pretty sure the official unveiling will be Sep 3. You'll be able to see it in person Sep 5 at MRLS.

    Why does EVERYTHING on this site get hijacked to MIATA? They really aren't that great, girls . . .

    You're just mad that you had to get an S2000 just to keep up with Miatas.

    Richard has a point. Maybe if we try we can bring it down to 90% of threads turning into Miata threads.

    Speaking of Alfa's and Miata's, some so-called "friend" sent me a link to this chilling monstrosity today:

    Yes, you are looking at a Miata made into a 1960 Giulietta Spider replica. Its for sale on Craigslist here in LA . . .ugh.
