Pros

Quick, nimble, and cheap

Cons

It is an older car.

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.

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.

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.

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.
