    Accessories for MX5 / Miata / Eunos Roadster

    My car came with many genuine V-Special Eunos Roadster extras: That had been missing for a while.
    - " V-Special " logo Floor Mats, rediscovered a couple of months ago.
    - Half Tonneau - fitted behind the seats to hide the soft -top - among the missing
    - " Eunos Roadster " logoed Windblocker


    The Car as photoed a few years ago

    Still on the hunt for the Tonneau !! - Must be somewhere.

    As an aside - don't think BRG [ Neo Green ] MX5 will make C and C in November - some other things getting in the way .. Damnit !!

    People are starting to sell them on Facebook. In fact someone recently was selling a complete tan interior that looked in good condition.

    Growler, good to know, I keep a bit of an eye out, as my doorcards and drivers seat are very scruffy, but it is a matter of how much to spend - just keeping it on the road at the moment is enough - waiting for that lucky ticket !!

    Prices for interior stuff is reasonably cheap at the moment. Things like the hardtop, 6 speed gearboxes, factory LSD's and 1800 engines from the Mark 2 are starting to skyrocket however.

    Interestingly-Yesterday the - 10th February 2019 was the 30th Anniversary of the Launch of the MX5 / Miata / Eunos Roadster NA model in 1989.

    There was a gathering of NA MX5's, and later models at Mount Panorama on the weekend.
    Wayne Watkins was there and took this photo; 200 cars were there, here are the 1989 ones

    30th Anniversary of the Launch of the NA MX5 10 February 1989- Australian celebration

    A Link on Flikr - with photos and videos of the Bathurst Celebration. by Andrew Edgar

    " https://www.flickr.com/photos/andrew...7676380062797/ "

    A very fine NSW Day by the looks - thanks to Wayne Watkins from the NSW MX5 Club for the link.

    Would have been good to drive Mount Panorama even if at Road Legal speed - an item off many a " Bucket List "I would think.

    This thread was started on the 28th Anniversary of the NA ... and the article about being able to get the car rebuilt in Japan by Mazda ..

    There was a 1992 model at Waipu car show on sunday with v8 toyota conversion, not much room for anything else under hood though.

    Must be a 1998 model then being a MK2. I did know of another one in Auckland with a Lexus V8 but haven't seen it in a while...
