    Another Micradventure.

    Google maps took me down an interesting road today. Well, less road, more swamp.

    Thank god I wasn't in the Mirage, that would NOT have ended well.

    Also, that's about how much wood fits in a Micra, for those curious.

    Again, a reminder I post here because it's almost the same car, and Micra-Forum has about 2 regular users, normally get a reply to a thread in about 2 weeks haha.

    You're a Mirage Forum honourary member as far as I'm concerned nickels. I think Micra's have been selling better than the Mirage's. Maybe more brand recognition, and a bigger engine.

    Look at all those wood chips under your seats lol shop vac time

    I mean I own both, but I get up to way more stupid shenanigans in the Micra, which is mine. The wife prefers the Mirage. I have no favourite. One is faster and worse on gas and handles a lot better. Really the whole difference.

    I dropped off a film crew member shooting a movie at a state park in Georgia, called Hard Labor Creek park. They're filming a horror movie called Fear Street. All wet dirt roads, with terrible traction and Mirage did great. Well except for a dirt clog getting stuck on my alternator that I had to chipped out, it was created a weird whistling noise. At first I was worried the alternator or belt was going out, but thank god getting that dirt clog out solved the problem.

    That is interesting. I like the colour your have on your Micra, similar grey as my Mirage. On the darker end of the grey spectrum.

    Dirk, check out Dave Chappelle's latest on Netflix "Sticks and Stones". Filmed in Atlanta, hilarious stuff. He lives about 30 minutes from me here in Ohio.

    Love Chapelle, great stand up. He had a good point too, woman should have the right to terminate their pregnancy but men should have the right to abandon unwanted kids! Controversial, I love it.
