Car Update
Well, I've gotten a phone call. I caused one of the pipes connected to the intercooler to snap off, right on the wield. They say it can be wielded back together, but that that the intercooler will have to go off to another shop for that. They'll probably be able to take it over tomorrow.

So, I need a Camry. I need to tell my parents I need a Camry... Now isn't really the best time for me to be running off with one of their cars, but, well, they certainly have enough of them.

Poor little mistreated Miata.

The pipes stick way out, eh? Not much ground clearance?

If it's the pipe I'm thinking of, it sticks out of the body of the car by less than an inch. But, with the Miata's already low ground clearance...

I hope the welder they take it to wields a welder better than you wield grammar. :P

That would be spelling, not grammar. And English is a horrible language.

Well, you spelled wield correctly, you just used the wrong word...

Ah now I put two and two together. I'm glad it's something that can be fixed without too much expense on your part. That car and you have a connection, sort of like good friends who have known each other for some time. It's a part of your history. I was looking at a review of the 07 camry in Motorweek. It looks pretty nice though the price is up there once you get a loaded one. Also too much body roll for my tastes. Not that I'm looking to buy or anything. I'd say going to the old camry in the interim is better than no car at all.. :)

*grin* The car started with a very good base, and is being built to exactly what I want. Now, if only we could be that well connected at autocross.. ;)

Camrys are notorious for body roll. Still, the ones I've had are good about giving the driver feedback on exactly how much grip the car has. That poor little '87 Camry I drove...
