1997 Mazda MX-5 Miata 2dr Convertible


This car is a ball to drive. Its like a high power go-kart. I know the younger crowd thinks it’s a girlie car but take one for a ride and you will be convinced otherwise. I’m 53 and wish I bought one a long time a go. Sticks to the road like glue, plenty of power. You feel like your going 100 miles an hour at 60 because you're so low to the ground. I don’t use mine as a daily driver; kinda tough because its so small, but it can be done. My wife loves being the passenger and lately has been taking her friends out cruising! I do my own work and it is built like a little tank, indestructible and cleverly done at that. Mine is a '97 with 94K miles and runs like new, zoom zoom!
