I need to try one.
Mate, I used to dismiss them out of hand as, 'a hair dressers car,' (I hasten to add that that was during my uneducated youth), but that was up until I drove one.
They are great pieces of kit and, as cars go, fantastic fun.
Highly recommended, fella.

I have had four of them, and have not ever in my life cut anyone’s hair, although the (female) hairdresser who has cut my hair for 20 odd years did also have an MX5 at one stage. In retrospect the first one, the original model was the best, certainly the purest sports car and closest to the the Lotus Elan which more or less inspired it, no power steering, very light by modern standards etc. The black SP turbo was fairly close to being brutal. I had one of the Turbo Mazda 6 MPS things for a year and traded it in for another MX5, the MX5 being fun even to drive around in town particularly with the top down, which the other wasn’t particularly.

Had a top down car, but living in the tropics it just meant constant sunburn. Got myself a nice Aurion Presara at the moment, with a moon roof for winter afternoon cruising.

WAIT EDIT: crap that doesn't sound right, I mean "big girl" in the sense that you can handle yourself, not like big girl as in fat. Which if you are plus size doesn't mean it's a bad thing either.

Payne, Furiosa is a 'female'. (Not that girls can't be called "guys" in US colloquialism.)


If you live in a glass house don't throw rocks.
Roger that, thanks for letting me know fella (hope that is the correct gender).

Apologies to Furiosa. I guess I should have figured from the Fury Road reference but I hope no offence was taken.

None needed. I'm not bothered if folks think I'm male... I have the stature of a 14 year old boy, to be fair. It's not like you all looked at me and went "umm.. what we goin with? male?!". It's all good.

Can't believe it's only Tuesday. Sheesh, c'mon Friday! (and please please please please please, it wasn't a fluke, pleeeeeeeease!)

Agree. Too bad he perceived me as some alpha dog that needed to be taken down a notch. A silly idea. To my way of thinking, the internet is as egalitarian a place as you'll find. I'd be more than happy to discuss racing with Synn, as long as he wasn't constantly trying to dominate the conversation with endless schoolboy insults. I'm not "hurt" by them. It's just tedious.

And you apparently can't help yourself when it comes to chiming in. Why you waste your time trying to scold me is anybody's guess. It should be clear by now that I respond with civility to those who offer the same. Your scolding only makes me more stubbornly resistant to your fruitless attempts to police the forum. If you want to play at the net nanny game, be my guest. It should be clear - I'm not a person who automatically respects authority, and one who really doesn't respect those who take it on themselves to play at being some kind of internet boss.

Apparently, the "Truth" for you is whatever Jumkie says it is. I know better.

Forget Keshav, this isn't about him..there's more going on on here than just your spat with him however aggrieved you may be..and i'm not saying you haven't got a point...tell me why you and others never tell synn to quit..could it be because it serves your purpose because of his target so you're perfectly happy for him to keep spitting poison?
It can be taken a step or two further back than that however. The situation whatever the rights and wrongs may have been in the past was an armed truce, as with the Korean War, no peace was ever declared or treaty made. If you assessed Synn as pretty much an obnoxious dickhead, a view which I have held myself at times particularly early on, Kesh drew the immediate conclusion that a random obnoxious dickhead appearing on the forum could only be Jumkie’s dear real world friend Roger, who hasn’t posted on here for many years.

Truth for you is accusing new members of being long gone members with no proof whatsoever.
