    Miata Is Still Always The Answer! 


    Two seats, rear-wheel drive, a manual transmission, some sticky tires, and enough power to light em up when the urge strikes. The basic ingredients of a sports car haven’t changed much over the years, and if you’re lucky enough to have a large pile of cash, there are quite a few brilliant examples available today. Unfortunately, for most of us, these pinnacles of automotive performance are all but out of reach.

    Sure, we have plenty of sports sedans, hot hatches, muscle cars, and even SUVs that claim to be sporty—all of which are also available for less than a fortune. But a true sports car for the masses is sadly becoming rarer.

    Luckily, Mazda continues to build the torchbearer for affordable performance. Now in its fourth and arguably best generation, the MX-5 Miata is pretty much the go-to answer for driving enjoyment on a budget.

    Not to be outdone by their Japanese neighbor, Toyota and Subaru entered into a partnership over a decade ago to develop their own small, affordable sports car. Sold as the Subaru BRZ, Scion FR-S, and now Toyota 86, the Toybaru has gained a loyal following of enthusiasts, many of whom take advantage of a thriving aftermarket to mod their cars.

    The recent introduction of a TRD Special Edition model to the 86, as well as an updated engine for the MX-5 Miata, provided an excellent rationale to test these two cars and see which is best.

    Summer Crush Winery Dorian Relief Effort 

    Summer Crush Vineyard & Winery

    WINE DOWN FOR IMMEDIATE DORIAN RELIEF. THIS SATURDAY (9/7/19) 1-5pm. REGGAE music by Freeport native Cecil Smith and his Stormy & the Treblemakers Band. 50% of the days beverage sales and 100% of all server tips will be donated to the recovery efforts. Summer Crush will also be taking any voluntary donations as well as needed supplies such as: Baby supplies (like Diapers, Wipes, Formula, non-refrigerated Baby Food, Baby Clothes etc…), OTC Medicines and First Aid Kits, Protein Bars and Breakfast Bars, Canned Food & Hand Can Openers, Powdered Crystal lite and Lemonade etc.. (no water), Clothing, and other such essentials, as well as the all-important generators, drills and chain saws and hand tools. We are working with non-profits like Angels Of Hope Outreach Ministries Inc., businesses like White’s Tackle and Stuart Jet Center (who is working with the Coast Guard and has access to Blackhawk helicopters to get supplies to Walkers, Freeport and West End immediately), as well as friends with businesses and roots in the Bahamas who know the local needs and have the ability to navigate the treacherous conditions when they become safe to get supplies to those who need it. All cash collections will go towards purchasing supplies. If you can’t make it this Saturday we will remain a drop off station for supplies and donations for as long as our connections have the need. #Bahamastrong
