Modified Miata

Lego Mazda MX-5 Miata

Mazda’s MX-5 / Miata is one of TLCB office’s very favourite cars. Small, light, cheap and enormous fun, it’s just like the Elves. Apart from you’d need to replace ‘and enormous fun’ with ‘little shits’.

Sorry if we’re grumpy today, the Elves started one hell of a fight last night after we let them watch some of the World Cup. With no known nationality the Elves tend to support whichever team is more violent, and thus when a Columbian kneed a Brazilian in the spine one of them immediately replicated the move on a colleague, sparking a mass Elf-fight. Sigh.

With order restored and the main protagonists removed from the office by way of TLCB catapult, we can get back to blogging cars. This one is small, light, cheap and enormous fun, and it comes from previous bloggee Rhys’ Pieces. His brilliant Mazda MX-5 Miata features a host of tasteful* modifications that are seen regularly on the thousands of Miatas that race every weekend. To see more of his excellent model take a trip to Flickr via the link above.

*Apart from the massive camber (or ‘stance’). Which always sucks. Why Rhys, why?

    A big “thank you” once again, TLCB.

    Good too see that the camber is doing its job of dividing opinions, hehe – I promise my next car will have very straight wheels 😛

  3. […] Volkswagen’s Golf GTI (or ‘Rabbit’ in the ‘States) was not the first hot hatchback. For that you need to go back a few years to the Chrysler/Talbot/Simca/Lotus Sunbeam (car manufacturer takeovers in ’70s were very complicated!). However it was the first to popularise the formula, and in doing so it nearly killed off the traditional sports car – at least until Mazda reinvigorated it a decade and a half later. […]

  4. […] (even Elven behaviour during this year’s FIFA World Cup even proved uneventful, unlike the last one), however today we’re back to earth with a bump, thanks to this (admittedly incredible) fully […]
