1997 Mazda MX-5 Miata: Another Reminder This Is a Driver's Car?

1997 Mazda MX-5 Miata: Another Reminder This Is a Driver's Car?

This cupholder in our 1997 Mazda MX-5 Miata is not attached securely to the center console. In fact, whenever I went to take a sip from my shake, the cupholder would come up and off, still attached to my cup. Because of this I've felt compelled to take corners and turns more gingerly for fear of flying drinks. Not that I'm hating on this. In fact, I can respect it. I know, it's a 180 from my time in our Porsche 911. But this just goes to show that our Project Miata, like our old 911, is only for straight-out driving, not multi-tasking. Oh that every car were like this. By the way, careful out there, National Distracted Driving Awareness Month is almost up.
