fun

Cons

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

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.

Pros

Fast, light, agile, thrilling car to drive!

Cons

If you are a tall fella, 6' plus, and more than a little broad about the beam, this will be a
snug fit! Occasionally a little twitchy in the wet and greasey conditions!

25

Fun For All Convertible! — If you like driving with a traditional set up, i.e., front wheels steer, and rear wheels drive, then this is the convertible for you! I will expand on this later!

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.)

Pros

Most balanced car I've owned

Cons

Long trips are a no no, limited space

25

Would Recommend This Car To Anyone — What's not to love. Just like the ol british roadsters except it still runs flawlessly after 120K miles! Great handling and driving dynamics, could use a little more power, but what car couldn't. One of the best cars I've owned!

Pros

acceleration, handeling, sound, raw feeling, steering, fun as hell (scary actually)

Cons

noisy as hell, feels every pebble on the road, spins-out when applying too much gas on sharp turns

92' Mazda Miata W/ Greddy Td40h-15g Turbo — I bought this miata a fews months ago from a mechanic from Charlotte. It has a GReddy turbo(15Gturbine td40h compressor), no ic, vortech 12:1 FMU, Racing plug wires, home made boost control, crappy stock GReddy BOV, fidanza 8lb. flywheel, 6 puck Spec stage 3 carbon metallic clutch. It's running 8lbs. boost, at least that's the maximum I read on the boost gauge at full throttle. performance (mine w/ Turbo): Quick revs, acceleration(like a motor cycle, except not nearly as fast) 14.5 1/4 mile Takes Corners at 40mph easily (note: don't apply gas or you'll spin out like me) Quality: For being 16 years old, it's reliable, few problems, maybe convertible is leaking. Apperance: looks o.k. Fun Factor: 9/10... not a super car, but is a cheap substitute for a Lotus elise msrp: >$38,000

Pros

easy and fun to use if you want to learn drifting

Cons

not good for people who have winter seasons

25

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.
