as above

Cons

Needs more work! I will never be 100% happy

Cheap Thrills - Better Than A Cheap Woman — Acceleration 0-62mph sub 7secs Braking - needs attention! Handling - sweet as a nut Interier is next for restoration Fun Factor - 10/10 Cost of ownership is not important... as most of the cost goes to up-grades and restoration and I would warrent those as "additional". By the time its finished, we're looking at over £15,000. But that's not the point is it? Its a passion, part of me and when is on the road, it will take on most cars. I'm always just under the limit... Because I want to keep it. I just love driving this car

Pros

If you like small, nimble, cheap, sporty, two seater cars

Cons

NO trunk space

25

I Miss Mine Everyday — Acceleration was alot of fun with minor upgrades, braking was great, handling was awesome. Build quality was very good. Appearance was a little mis matched with the stock bug eye headlights, but mostly good. It didn't cost much to own. Fun Factor of 10!!! Like driving a go-kart on the street.

Superb And Very Usable 2 Seater, Engine Is Bullet Proof And Goes On For Ever... — not much in performance but doing 30 feels like 60, superb handling, easy to take the top down, no squeeks, rattles or bangs, build quality can not fault, only one problem, little noisey with the top up, all in all an excellent fun car to drive,, even has a quite a large boot for a 2 seater....

Pros

It feels better than anything else in the world

Cons

It is small, the roof is not that water tight

45

The Na Mx5 Miata — These cars are so amazing! It may have a meager amount of power, but there is NO SUBSTITUTION! Miatas feel so tight and grab around anything. Minor performance upgrades will make it a track ready animal. I LOVE MY CAR GO BUY ONE TODAY

91 Miata — Great nimble car. Not great daily driver. Cheap maintenance, and great build quality, though not hard considering the small amount of parts used in the car. Very fun to drive but lack of power can be very frustrating. two words.

Pros

good handling, fun, economical

Cons

not so fast

25

It´s Fun — I like that it´s cheap to run, very reliable and very fun to drive, it´s got everything you need on it, but still it needs to be just that bit more practical and fast. It handles very well.

Pros

sweet handling

Cons

your mother in law will hate it

35

I Have One, Need I Say More? — this is a real sports car, light, simple; easy to drive... except when you decide to go really fast, then it can oversteer on corners and scare you if you don't know what you are doing. The fun of driving fast in a slow car such as this one far outweighs the fun of trying to go slow in a really fast car. its usually cheaper too.

Pros

Quick, nimble, and cheap

Cons

It is an older car.

35

The Mx-5 — The Miata in stock form leaves a lot of room for improvement. This Miata is to a point where I cannot complain. Full suspension work makes it handle like it should (in my eyes). The garrett turbo makes the car perform great. I have driven stock Miatas, and while they are fun, they just lack too much. I like knowing that my car hangs with V8s'. It is honestly like a go-kart on steroids.

Pros

RWD LSD

Cons

It's a little underpowered, stock.

25

Rwd Lsd — It is a RWD sportscar with LSD. It weighs roughly 2000 pounds. It is a handling beast, and once it's turbo and has coilovers, will destroy all. The only downside is the build quality is typical old japanese. Rusts sort of easy. The seats are comfortable, but this is a sportscar. Overall a really fun car to drive.
