Away with the fairies
Please feel free to post all your pics and stories of MK3 / 3.5 and 3.75 here
That made my day lol a simular thing happened to me ,I was getting fed up with my old tv .....the picture wasnt so great im not enjoying the tv as i should ,I know buy a new 4K super wide fandango .or get my eyes tested get a new pair of glasses the old tv is wonderful now isnt age a wonderful thing.In 2013, I had owned and driven my MK1 for 7 years and 75,000 miles. I was ready for a change, and my old body protested getting in and out of a Sports car. I started looking for something that was a bit higher off the ground than a MX5. Criteria didn't change much, the replacement had to have a retractable roof, manual gear box, and get similar fuel economy to the MK1. I concluded that the only car that met all of my needs was the Fiat 500C Abarth. I had a doctor's appointment, and was discussing the pain that I experienced getting into and out of the Mazda, and my car search. Long story short, Doc changed my cholesterol medication, the pain went away, and the next week, I found my current MX5.
This car is not as go kart like as the MK1, and does not offer the same driving pleasure; however, it is a much more pleasant touring car, and maybe a bit more suited to the roads and type of driving that I do. I have been driving the car for 3 years now, so I recon that I have 4 more years before I am ready for a change.IMG_3080.JPG
