The problem with a Miata is that some of us (like me!) have a constant itchy curiosity about owning and driving different cars, and it’s hard to accept that there might be “the one”. I look at BMW Z3’s, I look at Audi TT’s, the idea of a Toyota MR-2 (especially the newer version) is interesting, hell even buying a decent Spitfire has crossed my mind. But this Miata I have still checks off every item on the list, and does it with no drama at all. I go out to the garage, flip down the top, hop in and it starts and runs and lets me beat it down some pretty bad roads and do things that stress the suspension, and it just does it, does it well, and if I want to do that again tomorrow, well fine, it does that too. And if it sits for 3 weeks because I’m doing other things, that’s OK too and it still starts and off we go.
