1997 Mazda Miata: +1

1997 Mazda Miata: +1

After a very, very odd day of transporting and photographing cars, I wound up with our Miata and an hour long drive home. But as I stuffed myself over the bars, into the seat and fired up the motor, I heard the tell-tale clicking of the valves. As I was already at a gas station, I popped out and checked the oil. Sure enough, it was down a quart so after a few bucks and a few minutes, the oil was back up to level and I hit the road, sans radio.
