^ I wish. How's the boot size of the MX-5?
< Could be making $14 an hour if it weren't for all of the old people/seasonal foreign workers here for the winter.
v Makes ?20 an hour?

^Decent. Not the best you'd ever seen, but surprising for its size. Watch out for the battery in the boot, though. I gets better as you get to the later models, but they are not nearly as nice-looking and a bit heavier. A little diluted, in other words, but still very good cars across the board.
<Wishes he made ?20 an hour.
?Wants the minimum wage to be ?13 an hour.

^ Not sure, but probably since that will benefit me while I'm going to a British uni.
< Loves the pop-up lights on the first-gen.
v Same.

^Definitely agrees. 1st gens looked like little Elans, which is kind of what the Miata is supposed to be, a bombproof Japanese take on the Elan.
<Is cold.
?Is also cold, being in Colorado.

^ That's what the gas fireplace is for.
< Was sceptical of the Miata when I was younger, but then I saw a docu on the fall of the British car industry and it showed how good the Miata is (maybe it was TG, dunno, I was young). After that, it was high on my list.
v Always knew the Miata is good.

^Yeah, I've always liked it.
<Thinks Clarkson probably did the "Fall of the Brit-cars" documentary.
?Liked the Miata because of what I said earlier- reliable Elan for less money.

^Good car. Faster than the MX-5, still has the same concept, and is completely British (which I suppose amounts to a plus with two-seaters, like four-door saloons from Germany) and not bad-looking either. Not what I'd call "bombproof reliability" though.
<Must now go to work. Back at 12.00GMT. Will continue the thread then.
?Is in the Mountain Time Zone.
