Hemmings Sports & Exotic Car
My MR2's 15 minutes of fame


In December, 2005, I started a thread on the forum about an article which I had seen in Hemmings Sports and Exotic Car magazine.

In that thread, one member seemed to react very negatively to the mention of the magazine. After several references to a previous thread, I found that this member had been kind of a jerk to Craig Fitzgerald, one of the magazine's editors. Craig was trying to locate a stock Miata to photograph for an article, and the poster got very nasty because his Miata had been modified - and rejected by the editor.

Hemmings DID find several Miatas. (I believe they were members.) But I was embarrassed for the more "rational" members of the forum, so I e-mailed Craig, sort of apologizing.

In a subsequent e-mail exchange, I mentioned that I had a very original 1993 MR2. I was shortly contacted by Jeff Koch, their associate editor on the west coast, and, to make a long story short, early in 2006, he photographed my MR2. It was featured in the January 2007 issue of Hemmings Sports and Exotic in the MR2 Buyers Guide.

Pretty neat, eh?
