Registered Another Domain Before Someone Snatched it: MiataFiata.com

…been contemplating registering MiataFiata.com since last year when Chris, Sakshik and I launched the Miata Fiata Talk podcast. Today I finally pulled the trigger so to speak. MiataFiata.com is the new home of the Miata Fiata Radio podcast… I’m using the Radio and the Talk and the Podcast labels interchangeably but eventually we’ll pick something that sticks. Either way with my NC1 GT PRHT, Sakshik’s NB and Chris’s NC1 GT PRHT with appearance package and the oldie Fiat 124 Spider we have all the boxes covered… (even though yes, I realize the 1970’s Fiat has nothing to do with the current Fiata made by Mazda).

This domain will be a great way to separate my marshaling, my foodie road trips and my general BS from my Miata stuff, although everything is still hosted and lives on MyRoadTrip.net

I am excited with this project!

Got a good deal too taking advantage of 99 cent first year registration and $9.99 each subsequent year. I chose the 5 year option plus some generous % discount from Ebates. Now I have the domain until March 30, 2022

Miata Fiata Talk Podcast Field Trip to the Alfa/Fiat Dealer, Comparing Fiat 124 Spider to NB MX-5 Miata

Today the Miata Fiata Talk podcast crew took a little field trip to a local Fiat dealer to make a very unscientific comparison between Sakshik’s NB Miata and the new Fiata 124 Spider.

The similarities I think are pretty obvious. The cars are nearly identical in size and dimensions, but what stands out the most is how the lines of both cars look slightly similar to each other. Sure the headlights and tail lights are different, but if you squint just right you can totally see it…

We stopped by the Fiat dealer on the way back from the last Cars & Coffee of the 2016 season at Tice’s Corner in Woodcliff Lake, I’ll post some pictures from that event separately. For now enjoy these pix;

There’s very little similarity between the Fiata and the NC’s…
