Any Miata fans?

Or MX5s if that sounds more masculine?

Just curious.

Love em! Driving one for the first time instantly ruined my taste for how bigger cars drive, even so called sports sedans.

I drove one before and absolutely loved it. It was such a fun car to just fart around with, don't let it's appearance fool you.

I know a lot of people race them, they really are cool cars.

I've never had one, but I wouldn't mind one if I had the space.

Please don't tell me it's red, otherwise I need to find a red convertible to keep this three way bromance going.

Cool what year? Hopefully a stick shift not a snore-o-matic. Hard to beat Miata shifters.. you might want to change the tranny oil though. You'll find a large degree of snobbery from the purists who drive the first gen miatas against the 2nd gen and 3rd gen, but in my book they're all great to drive.

I have my 99 sport which I drive to work and autocross. Love it. Tell us more about yours.

They are a nice ride, would have bought one, but I didn't fit in it. I am 6' 190 lbs.
Bought an S2000 Instead. Hope you enjoy yours

If you dont fit in a miata, how the heck do you fit in an S2000?!!?? My friend has an S2000 and that thing is a mother to get in and out of!

I've got a hankering for a Miata to transplant a 5.0L Ford into.

Getting in is a little tight, but once in, very comfortable
