Nice Price Or Crack Pipe Is this used car a good deal? You decide! The seller of today’s Nice Price or Crack Pipe MX5 says in his ad that the car needs little to be perfect. With a Ford 5.0 under its hood it’s already a good way there. Let’s decide if its price pushes it over the top. I’m really disappointed that the vast majority—as in, not a single one—of you shared my enthusiasm for yesterday’s wild custom 1980 Volvo 242DL. What happened to you, man? You used to be cool. Okay, you all are still cool. That was uncalled for. Seemingly also uncalled for was that droptop Brick. In fact, most of you wanted to drop kick it into the obviously alternate universe from whence it came. Seeing as you didn’t like the car, it’s not surprising that its $7,500 price also proved unpopular. Sorry there wasn’t a ‘Kill It With Fire and then Nuke it from Orbit, so, You Know, You’ll be Sure” option in the poll. As it was, … [Read more...] about At $7,500, Does This 1995 Mazda MX5 Have You Saying “I Could’ve Had a V8”?

PUBLISHED: 12:44 09 May 2018 | UPDATED: 12:44 09 May 2018 Lewis Beales Liam Morley remains unbeaten after his visit to Snetterton. Picture: Nick Purdie Archant Liam Morley maintained his unbeaten 2018 British Superkart F125 record with two flawless performances at Snetterton to strength his grip on retaining his title. Kirk Cattermole did briefly lead the reigning champion in race one on Monday, but for the remainder of the two events Morley led every other lap across the line while Chris Needham tried very hard to dislodge Morley in the early part of race two without success. Lowestoft’s Clint Bridge just missed out on a top-10 place in race one and was in a race-long three-way battle over sixth place in race two before finishing in eighth position. Steve Kite led every lap of race one across the line but he had both Alex Cursley and Wayne Rockett snapping at his heels – however, he managed to contain both to take the victory in the opening Hyundai Coupe contest. … [Read more...] about Morley proves invincible with perfect double at Snetterton
WHAT next for the Mazda MX-5, the super little Japanese sports car that continues to defy the social mores of an age dedicated to rapid and ruthless digital progress?

And yet a few years ago Mazda had the courage and foresight to radically change the fourth generation of its star performer. The move was a triumph and recreated a sports car fit for 21st century driving that had first debuted to world acclaim at the Chicago Auto Show in 1989. In 2018, bang up to date, the Mazda MX-5 has taken What Car magazine’s “best convertible” title for the third year in succession. Of course, the 2018 Mazda MX-5 RF I have been driving this week is still instantly recognisable as an MX-5. But now the car is sleeker and trimmer — the … [Read more...] about Mazda’s sound quality keeps up with its looks
