I’m really pleased with the local Miata community. I’ve been on a lookout for an intermittent windshield wiper switch for my car for a little while, had been sending best offers through eBay time and again, and received nothing but rejection or high counter offers. And then BAM! One day both of my $30 best offers were accepted. One I went to pick up locally in Linden, NJ and mounted on my car for the road trip to Watkins Glen last weekend while the other was shipped from Texas. I reached out to a Delaware Valley Miata Club member through facebook to see if he knew of anyone interested and before I know it another member of the club was on his way to pick it up. I went ahead and installed the switch for him to make sure it works.
I also took the opportunity to compare the NC3 Miata with my NC1. Call me crazy but visually the NC1 looks more slender than the NC3.
But even though this 2013 model in beautiful Black Mica was a good 6 years younger than mine, it’s nice to see that little was changed. Jerry, the owner also had some comfort mods installed like the Cool Breeze vent mounted top/center of his windshield, and a nice elbow rest on the driver side door.
The last time I saw Jerry’s car was on our Sandy Hook Cruise a few weeks ago… and hopefully the next time we meet up will be on another Miata cruise somewhere. Read more about our Cheesequake to Sandy Hook Cruise here.
