Got some new shoes for the miata this week. They’re STR 512s in 15×8+0. With a bit of convincing via a big-ass hammer, the car’s able to drive, but it could still use a proper fender rolling.

And then, as if the internet still cared about blogs, I came back and started posting again.

As some of you (as if there are any of you that will still read this) may know, I live in Atlanta now. Recently, our friend Jarrod has moved down as well. Also, as part of my feeble attempt to actually enjoy cars again, I have acquired another miata. It has the same seat as my old white miata, it has a torsen diff, and I bought BC coilovers for it; so it’s pretty much the same as my old one, and it’s amazing!

Jarrod texted me today to see what was going on, and I told him we should go hit some mountain roads up since it was raining, so there would be little traffic, and little traction.. pretty much the perfect time to go. So we grabbed some food and headed off to see these beautiful roads.

(I know it’s the same spot, go to hell)

After putting the butt out around a couple of corners, we got to a nice little rest area spot, and I took some more friggin’ pictures.

After that we went and drove the most technical road that I knew of, then stopped off at a lake to look around. We’ll probably come back to this spot for a cook-out sometime soon, because I scoped out a nice pavilion across the lake.

After that, the roads started getting a little too residential for my liking, so we headed back from whence we came, and took a little video.

So yeah, blogs, woo!
