Mazda MX-5: Miata Fender Removal. Fender Bender Fix.

Well I’ve gone and done it. Took the better part of the day but my fender is now fixed. Not the prettiest job but it will have to do for now. What I’ve learned is that it is possible to change the fender without removing the bumper. I was worried it would take forever. Luckily […]

Hot Wheels Mission Accomplished!

…mission accomplished! (sort of) After a few days of obsessive compulsive behavior. Two supermarket visits and a trip to Wal-Mart dropping $50 bux on toys, my collection is off to a good start! I cleaned out my local ACME grocery store of their white Mad Mike Miatas that I mentioned in a previous post. And […]

Hot Wheels Race Cars Collection

Several years ago I started buying a ton of Hot Wheels diecast race cars to get my little nephews hooked on cars and racing. These days my young nephews have convinced me that I should have started my own Hot Wheels and Matchbox collection much sooner… Don’t get me wrong I’ve been treating myself to […]

Miata Fiata Shopping in Daytona Beach, Florida

I noticed a Mazda3 in traffic on our way to the Rolex 24 at Daytona one of the five days volunteering there, sporting a cool Daytona Mazda license plate frame. I instantly decided I must get one for my Miata. I plan to cut back on my volunteering and I know that Mazda RT24-P Multimatic […]

It was Tough to be a Mazda Fan at Daytona 24 Hour this Race

I had high hopes for Mazda Motorsports DPi team this weekend. Team Joest showed so much potential at the Roar. And then 2017 repeated itself… deja vu all over again. Right off the bat one of the cars had a hard time leaving the Le Mans style grid in pit lane. Remarkably IMSA allowed the […]
