I have deduced that this referrs to the Pit Crew Racing nose but where did this come from? It does look a bit like a potato but was there someone in particular that started the tater thing? Just wondering.
The term - Blue Potato originated way back to 1985 and has nothing to do with the Miata or the Pitcrew nose when that name came up in my life back then - it was a name that stood for several things including "against the norm" and "taking risks" and it applied nicely to my Laguna project from day 1.
Tater (IMO) is just another term given and I am not sure where it came from - but fits nicely in the slang term.
That's really funny actualy - It is amazing how things like this works out...the funnier story is the true story behind the Blue Potato name what what happened long ago - maybe I post the story sometime for sheets&giggles :wink:
I know all of you read more than just one automotive board. Let's post up all those dope pics of cars that are saved in your computer. Regardless of make or style. If you think it's sweet, then post it up. I'll start.
Im sure that this will get flamed for asking this but here goes.
I want to make the car more driveable for long distance, as in cross country, but it doesnt lose its fun so i can go through those glorious mountain roads.
What can i do for say suspension, wheels, transmission.
sorry for the lack...
Just like the title states, I'm thinking about picking one up as my DD. If I buy one, I would just put wheels and lower it and call it a day.
Anyone in here have ever owned or have one ATM? Pros and cons about the car? Maintenance costs?
I would appreciate all the future inputs...
