Goodbye MX5

My MX5 has been for sale for while and this morning it finally sold. I’ll miss it a bit – it was such a great little car. Hopefully the new owner enjoys it just as much.

Another MX5 club run to Bathurst

It’s been two years since the last MX5 club run to Bathurst and nearly as long since I’ve been on any of the club runs. It was another fantastic run – it really is a great drive up along the back way to Bathurst. Quiet, twisty country roads that are just perfect for a nice drive. 🙂 The weather even turned out perfect. It was a bit of a shame that the Mount Panorama circuit was closed when we got there but since it was closed for a hill climb event we settled for watching some of the competing cars instead. 🙂

There are some more photos from the day here

Good bye MX5 Clubman

My old 1993 MX5 Clubman was sold today and has gone off with it’s new owner (another MX5 enthusiast). It was looking nice after the hail damage repairs …

I hope the new owner has as much fun with it as I did. 🙂

New car

While the old car was in for hail damage repairs I shopped around and got a new one. 🙂 It’s another MX5 – I did consider some other makes but couldn’t think of anything that would be as much fun for the money. It’s a 2004 SE model (Mazdaspeed Miata for the USA folk) and is very nice.
