1994 Mazda MX-5 Miata: The Ritual

May 26, 2010

It's not like I've never owned an old car before, but I find the startup "procedure" for our 1994 Mazda MX-5 satisfying on both a tactile and an auditory level. So I made a little video, completely with key fumbling because the "dome" light is in the passenger foot well. However, in retrospect, I realize I left out a key step that I always do: lower the top. Sorry.

Last night was my first night in MX-5 since it got its new suspension parts, and let me tell you, having some actual damping was really nice on the way to the ramen house. I can't wait to get this car for a whole weekend.
