I bought my Miata new in '92, and have never been sorry. I did loads of long-distance driving up & down Calif. when working for the state. Later took the car to England for 10 years where it was loads of fun on twisty lanes. Added supercharger, adjustable Konis, & slotted discs all around and it now goes & handles even better. Over 105K miles, and the only thing that has ever failed was a blown heater hose, long ago.
Fun, fun, fun to drive!
Slightly more comfortable bucket seats--though it just may be my back getting older since I bought it 18 years ago. Only wish I had the 6-speed box.
