Just joined a couple of weeks ago and already had answers to a few questions. They seem to be a friendly lot here.

Hello, and welcome, an etheral blend of technical expertiese, brilliance, learning, debate, and silliness.

Despite your car being red, you have significantly redeemed yourself by having a 1999 1.6, which is , as we all know, the most drivable, best value, most economic, comfortable and most sought after of all MX-5's built ever, (in my opinion, until I can afford a z sport anyway).

INterested to hear of all the stuff you have done to your car over the last 3 years.

What a response !!!!!

Postby CJT1.6red » Tue May 22, 2007 8:16 am

thanks for all the good wishes and interest, this colour thing seems to be a bit of an interesting topic, all i can say is that i looked at all colours before i made my purchase, the only three colours i liked were silver and then black but in the end in my view ALL sports cars should be red its just the way things should be :D (in my opinion of course ) :P

Thanks for activating my member account Douglas and i will get out the digital Camera and do my best to capture some nice pics for my profile

I have two jobs one of which is shift work and i will try and get to one of your events ASAP, you all seem to be as mad as a brush which is the kinda people i like

It shouldnt have to be said...............all sports cars are red !!!!!

(Think that might be my Jingle for now !!!!)
