Hi all,

I went to my first Japanese car and bike show at the Larz Anderson in Mass. It was cool to see some nice old Japanese cars and bikes. Especially now that they have, as we know they would, gained classic car status.

I have had a 1990 Miata since 3/90, but my "classic" is my mothers 1986 Corolla. Maybe I should have driven that to the show...maybe not!

My Mazda experience has been continuous since I got rid of my 55 Chevy project and 75 Ford Granada for an Rx-7 back in 1982.

My second post, now I can post the Larzs show pics to that thread...[/img]

Mint, No..... 24 years outside in the New England weather not to mention it spent many years as my "winter car"...well its not so mint any more. I guess I could show it as a special lightened edition.

So when does my 1990 Miata track rat become a classic?


Thanks for the welcome.

My first car was a 1971 Datsun 1200 that I bought from my brother way back in '78. Wish still had that in stock condition...He made it into a bad early "ricer". I finished off by parking it on the roof.

seriously? you let go of a 55 chevy? ouch. rx-7s are nice and all... but i wouldn't have given up a '55 chevy for one.
