Driving Around in My New Miata
Oh hey look at what I bought :)
Trinity Rd in my Miata, scaring my girlfriend
In my 1996 Miata going over Trinity Rd from Glen Ellen to Napa. Wanted to
test my Samsung TL220 camera with my Panavise 809 mount, the video is quite
shaky, need to work on that. Driven this road a lot, but went a little
quicker this time and my girlfriend got a little freaked out!
Getting My NA Back Into Shape: Front Yard Body Shop
In case you are wondering where my 1990 NA6C Miata's been lately, it got
into a traffic accident on May 8th, when my Miata collided with a Land
Rover after I was cut off near an intersection. Damage was mainly limited
to the bodywork and a bent tie rod. I was found to be not at fault for the
accident by an insurance investigation. Unfortunately, the other driver's
insurance considered my Miata a total loss. However, to me, it isn't.
Since I already got my insurance check and I wanted to keep my Miata to
transform it into a real racing car, I'm saving money for the bodywork by
trying an old Spec Miata trick, wenching the body back into shape and
banging out the dents myself, along with help, of course.
Miata V8 5.0 First Drive
2nd short drive really but who's counting. Interior yet to go in, still
fine tuning engine. Lots of fun so far, though!

Also something to note around Mighty Car Mods: we are normal guys and are
not trained mechanics. We like to make interesting car mods and show you
how we've gone about it, but we can't promise that anything we show you
will work for your particular car, or that you won't harm yourself, someone
else, your car or your warranty doing it. Please be safe, be responsible
and unless you know what you're doing, do not fool around with very serious
machinery just because you've seen us make it look so easy. Talk to a
qualified mechanic if you are in any doubt.
Bad Driving Compilation
A collection of lane crossers and driving fails recorded on Mulholland Hwy
over the last 6 Months. Celica at end is same as one from beginning, he
crashed a couple turns after he passed me.
Mulholland Highway in Los Angeles has been a popular riding area for
motorcycles & fast cars for decades. Car and motorcycle clubs are regular
visitors every weekend. Jay Leno can often be found at the famous Rockstore
and at a view point called Lookout talking with fellow motor enthusiasts.
Crashes are common as well as a heavy police presence on most weekends. The
Snake is a two mile section of Mulholland above the Rockstore. Riders
usually will make multiple runs allowing me to move from corner to corner
when assembling rider videos. The speed limit is 45 mph, most riders are
not going much over that so the majority of tickets are crossing the line,
wheelies or equipment violations. Bicycles are up here all the time but
motorcycles and bikes seem to do fine together as long as the cyclists are
willing to stay to the right. Cars passing them are a bigger problem since
there is no shoulder and most turns are blind.
I mainly shoot on the last corner coming up because I can see much of the
road and photogs are expected. The turn gets it's fair share of crashes
but people crash other places also just no one is filming. The top corner I
shoot seem to average one crash every couple weeks in the summer, out of
many hundreds of riders. 911 emergency services are rarely called and
accidents are seldom reported since most riders do not get injured
severely. Google Street View - http://goo.gl/wsMi
Junkyard Rescue! Saving a 1950 GMC Truck - Roadkill Ep. 31
One of the most incredible junkyards in the history of junk is Turner's
Auto Wrecking in Fresno, California—and on this episode of Roadkill,
Freiburger and Finnegan hit those 100 acres of vintage sheetmetal and go
spelunking for gold! After considerable debate, the guys select a 1950 GMC
shortbed truck that had been off the road for 26 years and jam to get it
running and driving for the trip home to Los Angeles. At least there was a
50-percent victory. Watch as the guys revamp the Jimmy inline six, panic
over a wrecked master cylinder, sweat their cajones off for four days, and
explore one of the greatest old-car stashes ever!
Roadkill appears every fourth Friday on the Motor Trend channel.

2015 Mazda MX-5 Roadster all-new Mazda Miata first exterior interior shots - Autogefühl
Showing you the first exterior and interior shots of the all-new 2015 Mazda
MX-5 Roadster / Mazda Miata. Our full review will probably follow in 2015.
SLEEPER Miata Shocks 600hp Z06!
At our stop in Nashville we hopped into a 600hp Heads/Cam Z06 after a
random Miata asked to street race at a meet, not knowing much about the car
other than the Intercooler we
noticed we went out to see what the car had... The results were crazy!
This thing was SCREAMING down the highway surprising everyone who witnessed
the race. Returning back to the meet we all found out exactly why this car
was so damn FAST!
The 5.3L LSx under the hood Boosted
by a rear mount 78mm turbo puts down mid
600whp on LOW Boost, the car was
turned up as much as it could be without completely blowing off the
non-radial 225 (narrow) STREET TIRES (around 700whp) equipped with a 4L80
transmission, once this street beast spools you better hold on!!!
Can't wait to see this car again in the future.
Driving the "back roads" of West Virginia in my Miata
