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

Fun Miata! — It's a fun little car that can take the turns pretty well, and it gets good gas mileage.

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 Sunburst — We love this car, my wife and I had 13 Miata's. Best all around purist sportscar ever. Good power for a lightweight ,4cyl car with great styling, smooth manual trans, great handleing, good gas milage, cheap to own and operate, this car is the most bang for the buck. If your considering a sportscar go test drive everything else and then go drive a few Miatas. Be shure to drive a first, second, and third gen. they are all great in their own ways. Also check out miata.net it can help with all miata related questions.

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

easy and fun to use if you want to learn drifting

Cons

not good for people who have winter seasons

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.

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...
