I was so lucky to get a Miata for my first car. A 95 Miata with 70k on it, excellent condition for $5500. This car is more fun to drive than anything else I've driven, esp. with top down. Just watch out for sunburns. Handles like a dream and looks great. Everything about it is so perfectly designed. I don't have to take my eyes off the road to operate the radio for example. The shifter is near perfect. This car is definitely a future classic.
Favorite features are probably the easy-to-use top, the top-notch handling, and the overall fun-ness of the car.
Move the cup holders back a little to prevent obstruction while shifting. Eyeball vents get loose.
