    99 Mx5 — Great milage and handling. Not much straight away speed though but corners VERY well. I average 30 MPG with the 1.8L stock motor. A turbo would be nice but still a pricey upgrade for a daily driver. Maybe sometime in the next couple of years.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Mileage and handling

    Cons: ride quality and power

    Buy One Today. Doesn't Matter What Year, They Are Fun! — This car is not the fastest car in town, but man can this car handle like a beast. It can drift like no other, but stay in control when you want it. 32 MPG and can't argue. A beautiful car and so fun to drive. You need to drive it to understand it.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Handling, Handling, Handling

    Mx5 : ) — Great little car! Fantastic to drive - great handling, even in the wet! A tad too tail happy if it's snowed :-) RWD chassis is more than capable of taking more power, which would make this car a little rocket. Would have prefered a Mk1 but it's not that important really. Interior is basic - elecy windows, no central locking, no A/C which means it can be baking hot in the summer and the windows fog up quickly if it's raining or cold outside. Roof Down Fun : )

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Tail Happy RWD'er with no roof

    Cons: A handful in the snow. No A/C on this one which would be nice.

    1999 Miata Mx-5 — Dollar for Dollar, the Miata is the best performing, most neutral handling, mechanically reliable sports car on the road today. Paying homage to sports car heritage, like the MGA's and Austin Healey's of the late 50's and early sixties, it is a DOHC 1.8 liter front-engine, limited-slip rear wheel drive, light-weight two seater sports car. It's perfect for weekend jaunts to the Russian River and Sonoma coast, or Monterey, Carmel, and Big Sur. Mine is a fine example of the first year of the Miata's second generation. It's triple black; exterior, interior and top. Cloth seats which are cooler and less slippery in the twisties. It's a "weekend car" with low milage, and it's stored in a dry wharehouse under a cover. I hope it lasts forever.

    Pros: Quick, reliable, and fun to drive. MPG is about 27 on road trips.

    Cons: Not much trunk space. Rear-view mirror is too large, obstructs view in tight corners.

    10th Am Miata — This is the best sports car ive ever owned. Its not blazingly fast, but it handles amazingly, and is a blast to drive. It gets good milage, and has a huge aftermarket following. It was cheap to buy, and cheap to insure, and ive never had any problems with it. Im 6'2" and i fit fine.

    Pros: Everything

    Cons: Storage

    Mazda Mx-5 — World most selled open two seater sports car. One of the most reliable cars ever made. Fun to drive, predictable handling. Cheap to buy, cheap maintenance. Nowadays I only drive the car top down. Still love my Evolution Orange, best buy ever.... Only a MX-5 owner knows what I feel every time I step into that car.

    Pros: Handling

    Cons: Belgian weather...

    The Miata Rocks — The best affordable car to own I've ever had. Fun to drive and amazing looks. It may lack horsepowers, but with a quite light frame is is REALLY fun to drive - and quick too.. I've never experienced any quality issues even though I've driven it all year around (in Scandinavia)

    Pros: Cheap, FUN to drive, good quality

    Cons: The dealership sucked

    1999 Mx-5 Miata — It's a good quality sports car for an affordable price (maybe except the newer ones though). It's fast, it handles well, and it's light and well-balanced (nearly 50-50 weight distribution). Gotta love that it's a rear wheel drive four cylinder too.

    Pros: Fast, light, great-handling.

    Cons: Not much.

    Miata 1999 — This is my second Miata (first one was a 1991 British Racing Green with tan leather interior). This one is the dark blue metallic with tan leather interior and tan convertible top. Miatas are amazing cars to drive and they are one of the most reliable cars on the road. I never get tired from getting the "thumbs up" and hearing "Nice Car" from people on the street.

    Pros: Handling, build quality, performance, design

    Cons: New ones are getting pricy
