This was my first Miata. It was a mid-life crisis car and it proved all I wanted it to be! Excellent performance and a fun car to drive. Mine with the auto only gets about 21/26 mpg. It isn't as frugal as I thought. The top is the original factory top and is still in good condition. I am impressed with the reliability. It is a solid car in every respect.
I love the cool pop-up headlights but understand why the stopped making them. It is hard to see past them at night.
Wouldn't it be cool to see a v6 miata? I bet it would hum.
