    And now I am actually Miata-less. A local needed a tub so he could more easily move a drivetrain he salvaged from a Miata. So I sent him pics of the cut up, upside down tub I had and told him that he could have it for free as long as I didn't have to help extricate it from the warehouse it was stored at. A week later, he had a tub and I had storage space freed up.

    This is fairly close to stance and styling I'll be shooting for with this truck. Not a fan of the belted hood, as that's really from an earlier era. And I'll be using early eighties bumpers, that are halfway between the slim style of the seventies bumpers he used and the chunky nineties bumpers on it currently. Oh, and I'll most likely be doing a LS swap using an L99 and 6L80e.

As time marches on, the Range Rover Classic remains a timeless classic. A neighbor down the road has a couple of them and they always catch my eye when I drive by. I must admit I wonder if they all run or if some are awaiting service.

    Other than getting the truck running reliably, I'd be tempted to leave well enough alone and spend all that extra money outfitting myself with some nice kit from Holland & Holland, tickets to the Virginia Fall Races, a bottle of Glenmorangie 18yr and some Peterson's Sweet Killarney for my Dunhill pipe.

    A local enthusiast with maturing taste. He's apparently on some Miata forums and FB groups I'm not on, and seems to be helping out some other Miata owners, as he knows what's in my stash piles and when someone needs something, he always pings me. He hasn't done anything to the car I'd object to. He finished the seats I had, and installed a rollbar. He put suspension on it that was better suited for street use than the Koni 2812s I had on it. He added a leather gaiter to the handbrake that matched the one I had on the shifter, and got around to getting one of the M2 keys cut for it. Since it turned 25 years old, he got classic plates for it.

    You can follow his Instagram. He occasionally posts pics of the black car at meets. https://www.instagram.com/larrybarnardjr/
