We're about to say good-bye to 2016, so I took a quick look through the past year here on the NMS blog, and figured since David Letterman isn't giving us TOP TEN lists anymore, that I'd have to do it myself. From autocross, to auto shows, to engine work and lots of other car stuff, here's some of the highlights from the NMS camera crew.
The Miata also received a new interior, so before that could be completed, all the old stuff had to come out. If you're still wondering about Miatas and wanted to see one with the seats out, the carpet gone, here ya go! This procedure is also a GREAT way to make money, if you find 62 cents hiding in the carpet, seats, and all those hard to reach places that are a lot easier to reach with the seats taken out of your car!
NMS-North got out of the house and did some kart racing with some of the Tidewater Sports Car Club members over the winter, and learned a lot. Some of the things he learned are that 1: He's not fast in a cart, and 2: He's very slow in a cart! We know that most of the professional drivers in the NASCAR, Indy, Formula 1 races started their careers driving carts at around 4 years old. Robert apparently didn't get this memo, and is still trying to find some 4 year olds he could take driving lessons from. Regardless, indoor and outdoor karting is a ton of fun, and we recommend it very highly. Wear a helmet, fasten that seat belt, and hold on!
On the same day in SC, our crew managed to get an awesome photo of this 1958 Edsel driving on the autocross course. On the blog it doesn't look as cool as it did in person, but you can click on the photo to get a better view too. Just about any car can compete in autocross, and this right here is photographic evidence of that little fact!
We hope you've enjoyed the 16 photos in our TOP TEN PHOTOS blog. If you're worried about our math skills, just remember what Yogi Berra said about baseball, and apply it to driving: "Baseball is 90% mental and the other half is physical."
