    I had an 2001 NB for 7 years and it's a really fun car on the twistys. Can't really call this one stupid as a buddy of mine has a Cobra kit car with e 427 SOHC / 5-speed, but I can't image turns at any speed being much fun....unless drifting.

    Tell that to one of the engineers I work with.
    I tease him about it being his daughters car.

    The engine sticking out of the hood kills it for me. I’m sure it’s one uncontrollable ride. Too much power for such a little car.

    Im impressed with the miatas at the autocrosses. They really handle well. Some of those guys out run cars with much more hp. The latest gen miatas look good too

    Still a hair dressers car no matter how good they look.

    Finally, someone built a car we really need! :)

    I like Miatas, I've toyed with buying one from time to time(okay, I've done that with probably a hundred or more cars). I think Mazda did a good job of building an English sports car without all the, um, English quirks. :)

    Local guy has an LS Miata. Drives it all the time. Says it's a blast to drive. Next time I see it I'll get a pic.
