Sad and wis t f u l....

Selling the '12 hatch - I really love this car, but in a mid-life crisis fit, I picked up a Miata, and love top down motoring just a wee bit more.

It's in the BST section if anyone has an interest.

I'm sure I'll regret it....


Edit: Title was "sad and wis t f u l" but somehow some funkiness showed up (it's done it twice now!) - change if you would please....

I think it may be winter for me here in Michigan and looking to break out of the doldrums because I have been browsing the dealer inventories online for Mustang Ecoboost's and thinking about making a switch as well. The Focus sedan is working great but so far in my driving history it has been 1 Focus and 3 Mustangs so far. I guess if you miss a car enough you can take some comfort in the idea that they keep making more!

You can't go wrong with a Miata. Did you pick up a new one? Got any pics? I have a 99 NB that I'm debating upgrading, there are some great deals on brand 2014s that didn't move.

Hard to cry about a Miata, ZetecDon has been putting all his mod. efforts into his for a while now - don't hear about the Focus at all.

Got the Title edited for ya.

Interesting fact. The thermostat for our car also fits on a Gen. 1 Miata (91, 92 ish). Buddy of mine has one and we somehow both bought the same part on the same day and were chatting about it in IRC.

My son posted some up, not sure which forum, but I'll get some pics of it.

It's a 2000, so also an NB. My initial thought was to go with an NC, but I drove this one just to see. The dealer I was talking to had one coming out of refurb, figured I'd find out to see if I'd want to deal on it or not, so I drove this one as a surrogate - and then made the guy an offer!

It's a neat car, evolution orange, so neat color too.

Back when I had a 'midlife crisis' I bought a brand new Ford Contour SVT. Loved it. Kept it for 13 years.. Then I decided to be 'practical' and bought a 2012 Focus SE.
That 'practicality' lasted 3 years then I just had to get some 'go' pedal again. Soo... I bought a 2014 ST.
I guess I am having a second midlife crisis. More like an old age crisis.. LOL
I am 65 years old.

"No crisis - just you having fun" You should appreciate that particular reference. :)
