I know, you’re saying:
1. “What? Another Porsche 911 video?” Well, just look at those wheels, they scream 2nd gen Miata. That silhouette screams 4th gen Miata RF.
2. “What? Another Iceland video?” Well, didn’t you know that Iceland is the new cool (no pun intended) vacation spot (caution: some NSFW language), round trips from NY for like only $500.
3. “What? Another Petrolicious video? Like literally half the videos you post.” Well, the Movie Suggestion Hotlines are always open, dial 1-800-MX5VIDS or leave a comment below.

Barn Finds Into Secret Supercars

This guy sort of reminds me of Rob Dickinson, the guy behind last week’s Singer 911, passionately obsessed with design, perfection & automobiles. Unfortunately neither you nor I will ever be able to afford either one of their creations, but fun to dream about anyway.


For all you black 1st generation car owners and/or lovers of 1960s TV super hero shows:

Buy One!

You only have until mid-night Sunday, soooo, to the bat/man cave and fire up the internet.

Miatas, Muffins, McBee, Mcleod, Museum & Big Meats

Where: Ridgecrest Coffee Bar – map

Meet at 8:00 AM for breakfast Muffins (or paninis or biscuits). Not hungry? Then just meet us there at 9:00 AM when we’ll hop in our Miatas for the drive1 to Mcleod Farms Roadside Market near McBee, SC.

Right next to the market is Macs Pride Farm Museum containing over 20 antique automobiles and just as many, if not more, pieces of antique farm tractors and machinery. The place is also stuffed full of farm life, lore and ephemera.

We will wrap up our visit with lunch at Big’s Meats & More (menu).

1. The drive to our destinations is about 115 miles and should take a little less than 3 hours depending on the time spent at the two leg stretch breaks. It includes about 20 miles of I-20 to get thru the South Carolina’s Capitol City (route). The return trip will be at your discretion.
