When I saw the mileage on the No. 16 MagiSeal Miata I got the sinking feeling that something bad would happen today.

Driving through a back alley, I saw a branch in my path and just drove right over it. But the Mazda is so low the branch impaled the front bumper, right through an air intake. The branched scraped along the ground, and I couldn’t shake it loose even jumping the curb.

Two wheels on the sidewalk (I thought the branch was caught under the car) a quick yank on the branch and everything was back to normal. What a weird moment.
