Miata, Fun In The Sun — This is the most fun car to drive I have ever owned. It is bettere than the two Corvettes, I have had. Better handling, and better build quality. I like the older Miata because the are light, rugged, simple and easy too modify. My Honda CRX was almost has much fun, but not a convertible.

I Still Miss This Car — Engine is willing but still anemic, which makes it fun to try to go fast. Although they are famous for being very reliable I had to repair mine a lot, although it only left me stranded once. Build quality is above4 average. I was able to autocross it without any problems ( not bad for a 12 year old car). Probably the most fun car that I've ever owned. The cockpit might give some claustrophobia though.

Mah Car — ok well i like that its a samll car, ONLY because its less weigth that the engine has to haul, thus its faster. For me, it doesnt cost a whole lot to own, only thing i really pay for is gas and reapirs and anything i may want done to it. The inside is definitely nicer than the outside for now, mainly cuz the lady that owned the car before me did not take care of it at ALL. and thats 16 years of not being taken care of. im surprised it looks as good as it does now. Of course, the car has only gotten better since ive owned it, and from being where it is now, it only gona get better.

Quick, Reliable — not much to complain about - bought it in '94 with 43K miles on it. now, with 79K miles, it still handles well. a few rattles, but i can live with it. the rocker panels seem to rust, maybe it's cleveland weather

Pros

Great Car, Reliable, Will take plenty of abuse and keep on going.

Cons

May cause you to skip out on other responsibilities.

Rev Happy Fun — Such a fun car. Owned it for almost 8 years. It broke but that was probably due to heavy abuse. It left me stranded once when the belts decided to shred 2 hours from home but equipped with a 10mm and 13mm wrench it was fixed easily with a stop at an auto parts store.

Pros

Classic looks and bags of fun to drive

Cons

Hard suspension and sadly the "hairdresser" image which plagues this classsic sports car

75

Turbo Charged Oldschool — The car still retains many of the features which made it the classic sports car it is today! The whole theme of the car is to maintain the classic looks but with the added punch of much more modern components. These include improvements of handling through eiback sports suspension all round including pi brace bars at the front. The engine is highly modified with a Garrett T28 turbo and uprated ignition system. Car pushes about 165 Bhp with a 0 - 60 time of about 7sec. Its not blistering but really is usable power and great fun to drive.
