1990 Mazda MX-5 Miata 2dr Convertible


This morning my miata turned 147,000 miles while making a mental note that it is it 's birthday this week. It's been a great ride and it's been well taken care of. The few repairs needed include rt door window motor, rt. rear brake caliper and timing belt @ 98k, clutch plate @ 110K and an engine pulley/gear wheel 133k. Original equipment that is still in place includes all lighting, brake system, engine (no cam prob yet), exhaust system ( just started with a sound near the manifold last week) and the soft-top including zipper still work well. It continues to be a great little car. Now I need to consider the exhaust replacement, original Mazda or after market, any thoughts?

Best Features

Hardtop in the winter and over all reliability, great handling on back country roads in the mountains and on the coast when you have the road to yourself.

Worst Features

None really other than it will be interesting to see 10 yrs from now if Mazda decided to re-intro reliability with gen 3.
