    I used to laugh and make fun of them until I drove one, then I HAD to own one (as a second vehicle, of course).

    I'm a happy owner of a '99! Anyone else like them?

    I love mine. Luckily for me I'm secure in my manhood. I get harassed by all of my friends and then I make fun of them for their big trucks. Overcompensating?

    They make great second vehicles. It's like a go cart with a seat belt and an airbag.

    I use to have a Toyota MR2. Loved that car. I use to think of it the same way. I put a easy 200,000 miles on that car. Wish I still had it.

    :cool:

    Had a '91' and drove it for 8 years with absolutely no problems.

    For the money, one of the best automotive values out there--providing you can fit in it. Great handling, good brakes, enough acceleration to be fun--sort of like an MGB with more power and much better design/reliability.

    You'd be surprised how many Porsche drivers end up with a modded Miata for their track car.

    Love 'em. Street legal go-karts. And cheaper than a kart. :D

    I also have a '99, just all kinds of fun in the twisties. I bought it with the intention of putting a blower and other mods on but I don't think I'd care much for handcuffs. Miatas are solid cars.

    <----- also has a big diesel truck and two Harleys, manhood intact.

    Love Miatas current plans are to sell the SRT4 and buy me a miata for a back up car to the bike and autoX.

    Cheap used and reliable.

    Can I add to the question NA NB or NC? I'm a NA fan.

    My friend who is 6'4" and 340 lbs was able to fit in my Miata, no excuses.

    Oh course, he would probably need googles to take it on the road...

    my sister had stock one, it was just a tiny little plain jane car.

    my cousin the gearhead also had one. it was a freaking beast.

    if i had the money for the car and all the fun mods i'd have one myself.

    A couple of my cousins and their wives/husbands retired to Arizona, everyone in their retirement community owns one. They have a ball with them.
