Trombone Miata Uses the Instrument as Sport Exhaust, Sounds Cool

Miata owners can be split in two main categories. There are those who have a fetish for the little Mazda and then we have the people who wanted a sporstcar and couldn't afford something placed above it.

We're not sure about the category in which the Miata guy in the video below falls, but we can agree on one thing - the guy has good sense of humor. Oh and we also believe he has nice taste in music.

Seeing him offering a shotgun ride to a man with a trombone is enough to convince us of that. Now, the guy in the passenger's seat had to pay for the ride somehow, so perhaps this is how he ended up using the musical instrument.

Regardless of whether this is how the story actually happened or not, the end result leaves us with a Miata that has an almost-magical sports exhaust. That's because the guy in the right had learned to use the trombone to mimic the soundtrack of such an exhaust.

This Miata now sounds like a seriously-tuned machine

While it still sounds like a four-banger, the resulting aural sensation would easily trick one into believing the four-cylinder engine under the Mazda has received plenty of work.

The trick you see in this video was pulled over in Murrieta, CA and we can see how the "team" could use it to entertain drivers around them once they leave the parking lot where they were having fun.

For all you reading this and considering buying a trombone instead of that eagerly-awaited sports exhaust, you should know one thing before you head over to eBay. The instrument is not necessarily cheaper than the engine hardware. As for the battle between the effect of the two, this is an entirely different matter.
