    Hi from New Zealand via Scotland

    New to here, but definitely not to old-school JDM. I'm a New Zealander who has been living in Scotland for the last 5 years and run a 1999 Mazda MX5-S. But I pine for my classic which sits in storage in NZ awaiting my return. My dad takes her out now and then, and when I go home for holiday she gets a service and lots of runs to keep her purring. I've had her for 13-odd years now and found her in the back of a shed. After a full mechanical rebuild and the rest of the car refurbished (while still retaining some patina), she has never let me down. She is a ...

    Re: Hi from New Zealand via Scotland

    Spent a lot of time in Scotland when I lived in England. Great surf up around Thurso..
    Not a lot of JDM old school tin over there, but a butt load of old Fords..
    Although the odd old Mazda does show up from time to time..
