My friend asked me if it was an old guy that was driving and I replied “ it’s FL everyone is old”

Well here in FL, mostly all old peeps....some as old as dirt! I put feelers out to a couple of guys about selling their NA’s....many can’t get out of them any more. In NC it’s more of a mixed bag. Twenty year old’s up to retirees+!
in MA robin and I are the second youngest in the club and I’ll be 67 this summer! 😳

Last day in FL, heading back to NC. Robin will be there until Mayish. I’ll probably drive back to MA mid April, then fly back and drive her and the cx5 home. Last year she followed me home on Mother’s Day and it worked ok, but she’d rather not drive alone if she can help it.
i hope to hit up some cars and coffee meets and I have a roll bar to pick up from Bethania Garage in King NC.
Done much traveling over the last 2 months both in the cx5 and Miata, KY, NC, Venice, FT Myers, Punta Gorda, Northport, Sarasota, Wimuma, Nakomis FL. Put 1600 miles on the Miata (includes driving down to my NC in the fall).
Until next year......

Installed the JBR short shifter today. Pretty easy install. Can’t tell you how good it is because I dropped the socket down past the transmission and it’s sitting on the pan below. Got a magnetic reach tool coming tomorrow.
did a LIO cap mod last week
😉

where are you Mike?
Love Lexington!!! Lived there from mid-9th grade thru 11th grade. Out of all the places I lived that is the one I'd return to. Of course I lived there in the late 80's so I am sure it has changed.

What area did you stay Mark? First apt. was off of Tates Creek Road and then housing opened up on the prison grounds. My dad was a safety officer for the Federal Prison System so he got housing on the grounds. The horse farms are beautiful and everything was so laid back.

Now that I am done going down memory lane, you want to clean my engine bay? :D

So from the early 80’s I stayed in a development off of Nicholsville road, near the Fayette mall. Also stay off man of war too. All Robins family moved there in 81. One of her brothers moved back after college. Was in Louisville for a wedding in early January. That’s when we came down with Covid! 😬

I see I missed responding. We are up in the northern area, a little south of Cincinnati. Takes a little over an hour to get to Lexington.

Wow, small world!

Oooo, I like the new Miata. haha I found one a couple of weeks ago too. Now, I am just waiting for the "Then" version to drop. Guessing it will be the newer NA casting in a similar colorway. Found the white RX-3 last week and still trying to find the new red Mazda3 hatch by Matchbox.
