2001 Mazda MX-5 Miata LS 2dr Roadster (1.8L 4cyl 5M)
Always read about how fun Miatas were to drive, so just bought a 7 year old 01. People think it is brand new until they see 106K on the odometer. We drive Lexus for comfort but the Miata is just plain fun. Until we add on to the garage the "comfort car" will sit outside. My wife is into this as much as I am, even planning a long road trip just to spend more time in it.
Fantastic cornering, responsive steering, easy up/down top. Great styling, simple build, easy to tinker with for the do-yourself guy.
