Random thought: The Duratec V6 is one of my favorite engine families of all time. Engineered by Porsche in the 90s, then sold to Cosworth, used in the Contour SVT as a 2.5 liter, then in the Mazda6, Lincoln LS, Jaguar S-type as a 3.0 liter, embiggened and made slightly worse (less reliable, sounds worse) in the late 00s to a 3.5 liter and renamed "Cyclone/Duratec", now it has twin turbos on it and you can find it in F150s and Ford GTs. The 2.5 and 3.0 versions have very melodic engine notes and I'd absolutely love to have one in an NA Miata.
In all my freaking out about not driving the Miata next year, it hadn't occurred to me that I live BARELY 5min from my kids' school, and my house is technically on my way to work. In other words, I could drive both kids to school, then come home, pick up the Miata, and be on my way. It'd be the difference between the car getting driven 5 days/wk and hardly at all.
ANYWAY, we did submit another higher offer which was also rejected, so we had our realtor inquire about exactly what the issue was. They didn't want to contribute any cash at close, so we removed it from our offer and made another one via email which they countered and we accepted, again via email. We submitted an actual offer yesterday from a walmart parking lot around 4pm, so I expected to hopefully have it signed by noon. Then we'll have an inspection and go from there. We ended up about 5k over where we wanted to actually be but I figure that's almost the cost of going down two more times to look again with no guarantee we find anything we like as much at the same or less money.

I have been contemplating on creating this thread for some time now. I have want a thread that you can post pic of things that you think car kool that don't fit in threads such as the Dope shizz thread or You laugh you lose and such. So ill start out.
One stop thread to discuss watches, watch fashion and everything about watches.
I'll start it off with a confession, the only shopping and looking I do with utter joy is watches. Whenever I'm in a town with some time and I see a watch shop I enter it, and ponder around.
