In a past relationship I found myself
always making excuses to take HER car
(an early '90s Miata) on dates.
Sometimes I had MUCH more fun with the
car than with the girlfriend!! She is
long gone, & I really began to
miss.....THE MIATA!! BUT I'm not one
who fears a commitment, so I finally
bought an early model Miata of my
own!! :-) I have owned
many sports cars in the past (most
costing MUCH more), but I can't
remember having this much fun for the
buck!! My '91 white Roadster has only
miles on it, but while shopping for
this one I saw many others with 150K to
200K miles that were still running
strong. GREAT CARS!! "Zoom, zoom,
The style, the performance, the low
operating cost, the abundance of cheap
parts & suppliers, the comraderie
between fellow owners, etc. Service
can be done by almost any
decent mechanic, OR even by the owner!
Just SO MUCH FUN for so few bucks!!
I wish they still made 1st generation
Miatas. Thank goodness that tops with
glass rear windows are now available!!
