1994 Mazda MX-5 Miata: Sweet 16

May 27, 2010

LT 1994 Miata.jpg

Scooting around in our old Miata reminded me just how right Mazda got it from the start. The Miata, especially these earlier models, is so elemental. It's clear that the focus was (and still is) on driving enjoyment. No iPod? No CD player? No problem. I didn't even use the radio as I'd much rather hear the 1.8 wind out than subject my ears to Katy Perry, Adam Lambert or a yammering DJ.

Sixteen years old, 128 horsepower and 176,000 miles. And still a helluva lot of fun.
