Miata is the gayest car you can buy, I see them at the auto-x and they are decent in a cone parking lot but for sure they are still the gayest vehicle a man can drive..... why not a vw bug or cabrio while your at it.

Corky romano has one.... lOL

I heard this car is similar in handling to my MG-b, what a blast! I don't go near freeways though.

A Miata for the wife? Cool.....no problem.

A Miata for the guy? Personally I think it makes you cheap. With a hint of metrosexuallity!!!

LOL....I'm tripping.

But for a guy, why settle for a Miata when you can shoot for an RX-7? More power for nearly the same price......

Ultimately your decision. I don't sign your paycheck.

My wife bought the 1993 Miata for $850.00.. That is her back-up car, I bought her a Honda CRV in 2006.... My car is a 2006 Mustang GT, 5 speed manual.... I will drive the Miata since it gets 35 MPG and my car gets 18-20 MPG....

And there you go.

Now get some adjustable coilovers, beef up the brakes and suspension, slap on some Volk rims wrapped in Nitto NT555s and then you can dart in and out of traffic like a little rat!!!!

Its your money....do what you want with it.
