About 2 months ago I bought a 1994 Miata equipped with the B-Package and ABS. It had 53,XXX miles on it, had never been in an accident, and had all the records. I got the car for $3,000. This has hands down been one of the best gamble of my life. I absolutely loves this little car. Its a blast to drive, still feels as solid as a rock (especially for an mid 90's convertible), gets great gas mileage, and looks absolutely stunning. And, what surprised me is it actually sounds good for a 4 cylinder. Plus, The car fits my family and I perfectly (I'm the tallest at 5'8"). I expect many more happy, fun filled miles in this two seater.

I just had my little car's engine rebuilt by the mechanic whose worked on her since 2000. It's like driving a new car. Everything else mechanical on my well maintained vehicle is in near- new condition (the interior is my next project). I've loved every minute of driving this car and with the engine done, I am looking forward to another 15 years (before the next engine replacement!)

Maybe pre-mature - I've owned this car for only 9 months - but I have enjoyed every trouble free moment I've had it. Very impressed that an almost 16 year old car drives as well and feels as tight as this one does. I bought it with less than 80000 miles so it's been gently used over the years. When I was a kid in high school and college I had a couple of MGB's and loved 'em, but they were troublesome and unreliable. So when I set out to get another roadster to recapture the fun of open air driving I just had to get a 1st generation Miata. I get not only the fun, but the trouble free reliability as well. Having the both together is almost too good to believe.

I had bought this car for $1000 knowing that I would likely modify it. It was cheap since it was bought from a friend. I am now a firm believer in Miatas. I understand why there are so many of them around. Even in stock form, it handles amazing, the motor purrs at high rpm, and the fun factor increases exponentially with the top down. It such a fun little car to drive, I use it all the time just to take it on the road. Some wider wheels, sway bars, and shocks is going to be SO much fun....even in stock form this car is a driver's dream!. I knew many like the 94 because of more HP and have to say this one is no slouch...it feels very good.

Have only had this 15 year old car for four months, but what a fun ride so far! Was looking for inexpensive, reliable, fun and sure found it in the Miata. When I was a kid I had an MGB in high school and another in college. This car handles better, gets better gas mileage and is much more reliable.
