I Adore It. — Good handling, excellent balance, reliable, looks good, fun to drive and not too expensive. Easy to maintain and also a nice drive in rush traffic for a low 2 seater convertivle. Not the fastest drive nor very powerful, so this one is for the bends and not the straights.

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

Pros: A very good driver's car

Cons: 2 seater

An Original-fun To Drive-roadster — An original-fun to drive-roadster.Great built quality, good performance (with the 1.8 engine) and also an all time classic retro design with a lot of beautiful light curves..RWD is something amazing for the old style driver and this little machine can teach you a lot and make you smile all time.

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

Pros: Reliability, Handling, Engine Response

Cons: Expensive parts

Giant Killer: Mazda Miata — Acceleration: Off the line is sluggish, but once the cams change profile, not too shabby. Brakes: Great, no ABS, but I like that cause it makes be a better driver. Handling: excellent, according to data aquisition, higher G- loads through all of the corners than a 911 GT3 tested there by Road & Track. Just PERFECT balance. Fun Factor: This car puts a smile on my face everytime I drive it. Much more so than my GTi, or my mom''s GTO. Cost: Everything's cheap, tires, brakes, oil changes, everything. Even gets about 33mpg on the highway! Appearance: I like it a lot. And I get a lot of compliments on it wherever I go. Issues: some weird rattles have developed in the last year. But then again this car has almost as many track miles on it as street miles. Bottom Line: If you want a cheap, fun car that can be great on the track, this is your ride. I have tons of in-car video footage of me killing much more expensive cars (F430 for example). It's easy to learn on, and a blast once you're good.

Pros: Great handling, RWD, cheap, and fun

Cons: Good have better acceleration

One Of The Best Convertibles Ever Made — It's one of the best convertibles ever made, and It only takes 3 sec. to get the ruff down and 4 to get it up again. The cap I manual so no electrical part I going to break down when it starts raining. It’s already a sports car and doesn’t cost a fortune to purchase, style or tune (not that it really needs styling).

Pros: Convertible, Fun, Convertible, Sports car, Convertible, Not that expensive, Convertible....

Cons: Very small boot. Only 2 seats. 11,8 km/l as standard

Miata 2001 — Not enough power. 1.8 Sport has only 146hk. The best car ever to race in corners! If the Elise is better I must own one some time but this is by far better looking. The Miata is a classic and with the right rims it can pass as a boys car :-)

Pros: looks, handling, quality, The fun, Nothing but air in the hair!!!

Cons: power but that's just me :-)

2001 Crystal Blue Ls Miata — My Crystal Blue Miata is exactly what you want from a sports car. Fun to drive, RWD, 50/50 weight distribution, easy maintenance, high reliability, and I'm just now in July of '08 getting a good rip in the very, very-well-used soft top with 85,000 miles on the car. I'm just now looking into selling the car due to increasing family size (It was okay with 1 child, not 2). I may be getting another Eunos Roadster from my Sister some day when she moves back from Japan. Right hand drive, 1st generation (with the flip-up headlights) and it is also Crystal Blue!

Pros: Handling, looks, fun-factor, and this car has a huge following.

Cons: The top just ripped.

'01 Miata-wow! — This car has been an absolute dream to own. I've driven it very hard since brand new (7+ years now) and the only problems I've had were problems that I introduced to the car. Despite putting over 100,000 miles on the car and racing it on the track regularly, it's still an absolute blast.

Pros: great build quality.  snappy 6speed, incredible handling, gas mileage is awesome for genre and pretty good for vintage, brakes on a dime, accelerates strong through first and second

Cons: None.

Miata — From the previous owner doing many mods and keeping it tasteful. This car is a blast in the corners. Corners so well it beats a stock subaru sti over 110mph.

Pros: 4 cyl, good gas milage, street legal go-cart.

Cons: 4 cyl

Fun car to drive. Good mpg, it isnt an every day driver and it does need premium fuel. The trunk is small but it would carry a few duffle bags for a long trip. The manual tranny is tight, fast shiftin... Read More
