1999 Mazda MX-5 Miata 2dr Convertible


Among others, I have owned and driven a
Sprite, Healy 3000, MGCGT (MGB with
Healy engine), '79 Supra, ‘88 Supra,
(which cornered like it was glued to
the ground). None surpassed the fun of
the Mazda. Only my Healy was as
enjoyable. This car is a true sports
car in every sense. I drive it daily,
and even at 59 I still enjoy the
thrill. Top up or down, the drive is a
joy. Top down in the evenings is my
favorite here in Austin TX. If you
gotta drive, might as well enjoy it.

Best Features

Snap turns. Easy and quick top. Glass rear window. Handy turn and wiper controls. Easy quick shifts. Snappy acceleration in 30 - 60 MPH range makes it perfect in traffic.

Worst Features

OK, maybe a little more horsepower, but not much, it would make it too much work to control. More side support in the seats is needed. Tend to slide on the leather, otherwise.
