today, with no previous announcement, i found a strut tower brace on my porch, delivered to my house with my name on the address label.

fess up, come clean......

the box says it's for a 90 - 93 mazda miata.

it's really pretty sharp - slotted billet polished aluminum with polished stainless hardware. the mounts are black powder coated.

doesn't fit my vert so it's safe for the time being. :-P

Not me Richie. Sounds like a mistake maybe? In 10 years of regular shipping, I've seen some funny things happen.

Maybe somebody is trying to make a statement, sending you Miata parts...

I happen to have a 99 Miata. I'm sure I could modify it to work for my year...

If you become emotionally detached to it...

actually, i'm just stumped. :huh:

it's from a wholesaler in hialeah florida that i don't recall ever doing business with. it has my address on the package and nobidy ever said anything to me about it. i really know very few people in the mazda world.

it's 6" too low and 6 or 8" too short for a swift.

Is there a packing slip? Maybe taped to the box? Might have the billing info.

my mystery is solved but it will forever be a mystery to youse guys. 8)

honestly, i'm relieved that it wasn't a case of credit car fraud. that happened to me one time and it wiped out my bank account and caused a train wreck of bouncing checks that had me screwed up for months.
