Déjà Ewww: 2000 Mazda MX-5 Custom 60s Alfa Look

The Mazda MX-5 Miata is a fun little sports car wrapped in a boring exterior (sorry Miata fanboys, the shape is pretty blah...with maybe the exception of the newest model that brings some more style than the OG jelly bean) that is unfortunately slathered with a thick brush of innuendo about the driver and his dog.  Regardless, if you want the sweet driving experience of the modern Mazda platform with the classic looks of a 60s sports car 90s home-built-retro-custom, then I can imagine this next piece of Italiopanese sculpture might fit nicely in front of your Greco-Roman yard art. And if you get the vague sense of déjà ewwww...yes, we did feature this before. Find this 2000 Mazda MX-5 Custom 60s Alfa Look offered for $15500 in Temecula, CA via craigslist. Tip from Rock On!

  1. IMHO, we should start a GoFundMe page and put this thing out of its misery.

  2. I get kit cars, but this is such a half-arsed build. If you do a kit I should not be able to identify the base car from 20 feet. On top of that 15k and missing title, yeah right...

  3. On 24 June 1910, a new company was founded named A.L.F.A. ("[Società] Anonima Lombarda Fabbrica Automobili", "Anonymous Lombard Automobile Factory") on 24 June 1910, in Milan (initially still in partnership with Darracq).[2] The brand is known for sporty vehicles and has been involved in car racing since 1911.
    If your at home you have plenty of time to consume this. Complaints aside, have you ever
    seen the Mustang version of a Miata kit. That'll get you ill.

  4. More gaps than Cumberland or Indiantown

    1. .. more gaps than Dragonfly Jones' grill (Martin Lawrence character) !
