    Miata update: I had a very enjoyable late summer & autumn with this car, putting maybe a couple thousand kilometers on it.

    The only problem I had was the water pump started leaking right at the end, in late October, so I parked it. Next summer I'll replace that plus do the timing belt.

    Of course, knowing me, you won't be surprised that I also started modifying it to improve its fuel economy. My last tank was 4.7 L/100 km (100% relaxed top-down cruising on the scenic roads).

    i love the miata, the rust tho is quite worrisome. just don't get into a crash!
    also, seeing mark from TTAC say that our car is like a 4 door FWD miata is super high praise. ill have to re read that review.

    You wouldn't want to crash a NON-rusted 1990 Miata. There isn't much to them.
