A story to be shared about Miata's
My brother got a used 92 and had it painted and put new snow tires and then picked up his wife in Portland Oregon and after making a quick stop in Orcas Island Washington, drove home to Fairbanks Alaska. It is his first Miata and he is in love with it ! !
Finally made it home in one piece tonight, 3700 miles and one, make that two, sore butts later... We shared the road with all kinds of beasties, but made it intact. The car ran flawlessly, just a pleasure to drive. Those Bridgestone winter tires are pure magic- we drove thru deep snow, ice, slush, up steep slippery grades, where big tractor trailers were spinning out and jackknifing, and we just kept going and going... the Canadian Rockies tried kicking our butts, but that little car just stuck like glue and got us thru some MAJOR winter craziness. This morning we were in the Yukon Territory and took off in a blizzard for the Alaska border. The lazy Canadian snowplows were holed up at some truck stop drinking coffee, so we had to blast thru snowdrifts for over a hundred miles, but somehow we made it...
Took allot of pictures and will keep sending more. Enjoyed visiting with Dad- and of course he did everything he could to get us to leave the car with him on Orcas, especially after he drove it around the island- we had fun.
Well, we're toast. Seizures Later, ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ Tim
