1997 Mazda MX-5 Miata: Hate That

1997 Mazda MX-5 Miata: Hate That

Yep. Such a butt-puckering sound, too. "Clink!" And you know. You know from the tone, the density of the sound, you know about how bad your windshield is going to look, even at night when you can't see it very well while driving. When the sun came up, this didn't turn out too bad. But bad enough to remain pissed off at the jerky we believe kicked up the object, and want to work the DMV records to find his car and smear poo on it.  

So, loyal ILLTRTB reader, what say you? Many of you are critical of our maintenance decisions. Do we Safe-Lite fill it now? Wait for it to spider and get new glass? Claim eminent domain and seize the windshield from Monticello's Miata? Personally, I think it's time for a sheet of Lexan, broken in with some laps at Willow Springs.
