The Ultimate Economy Roadster! <3 — He's 25 years old and his styling has held up well. I was looking for a British car - being English myself- MG, Triumph, etc. and saw an ad for the Mazda. Decided to go and see him, drove him, fell in love, brought him home. Everyone comments on how cool he looks. I left the lights on a few days ago and the battery was flat. I missed that car so much in the hours it took to recharge. I had to be consoled with chocolate. Ha ha.

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

Pros: He looks cool, he's reliable, he's a head turner. I don't have to ferry people around due to only room for 2. Yay! :p

Cons: None. I would say cargo capacity but I knew that when I bought him, so it hardly matters.

This Is One Of The Best Things I Have Done, Looks Good, Rides Good, Life Is Good — I bought this car because at age 57, I decided that I deserved a toy and this seemed a lot safer than a motorcycle and my wife will get in this with me.

Pros: Car looks really good have had positive feedback at cruize nite. I like the response from 5 speed.

Cons: The ride is a little rough but we are a lot closer to the ground.
