The Most Fun For The Buck You Could Ever Want. — We were active in a Miata club. Weekend get togethers and junkets to the Keys were a big part of the fun. We once had Miatas stretched the entire length of Duval street. We now own a 2008 RHT but our first love, our Yellow '92 will always be in our heart.

1992 Mazda Miata — The car looks amazing and handles like it's on rails. Never been in a car that you have to learn how to push faster because it has so much to give. Could use a little more power for the straight lines but it's so fun on small courses it's worth it.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Over All A Very Good Car For Its Price To Tune And To Maintain — its a very good car to start with if you plan to play or get to know a track it is very easy and fun to drive first off because its small it may not have tremendous power but the weight makes up for the car its easy to upgrade and tune to increase the power it is also an front mount rear wheel drive car which means you can use this not only on circuit racing but you can also use it on drifting plus this is also a good starting car to learn drift techniques as for the appearance the compact and low to the ground suspension set up makes it look agile and aggressive enough to turn heads. another advantage of this car is also on the drag strip due to the weight of this car and size a 300hp version of the miata can actually stand up against 500hp lancer evo's!

An Old Car That Is Worth More Then Most Will Sell It For — Handles very well, good on gas engine has low power natrally low to ground exelent brakeing, you can hardly feel it. car Is very fun to drive, responsive handeling age has taken it's toll on mine, I still have the origional shocks which contributes to more then factory origional body roll.

She drives like a baby Ferrari 355

You Can't Have Her, She's Mine :p — I love my car. She's put a smile on my face every day for the past 5yrs. She's not the fastest but rear wheel drive + skinny tyres = FUN FUN FUN. Amazing build quality, only the clutch has failed in 5 years of hard driving. She's a V-Spec, the highest specced MX-5 they ever made, full leather, I put a Nakamichi Stereo in with speakers in the head rests and a beautiful Nardi steering wheel, the same you'll find in an E-Type. I'll keep her as long as i can...

stereotyped as chick car

If You Like Go Carts Buy A Miata — not the fastest car but also not the slowest, pretty reliable you can beat on it alot and dont have to replace much on it, exterior gets rated as a chick car by many people but thats your own opionon, cheap to maintain and gets great gas mileage, most fun car on the road handles and feels like a go cart
