I have a customer/friend who owns one, he belongs to a miata club and go's to track day at firebird with it. I always made fun of him for the car for a long time now. well today I went for a ride in it, I get in and he tell me to put the harness on,I'm like ok, he starts it,, BAM I'm like what the f#ck! 5.0 supercharged mustang power!

He brings me for a short hell ride than a parking lot trip.After that he lets me drive, tons of power, no weight he tells me it 2700lbs. get on the I10 and that thing pulled up to 120 in 3rd.

I will not be calling him gay for having a miata anymore:whiteflag

You got served by a chick car. ;)

Miatas aren't bad, they are a nice, cheap roadster that while stock, may not have much power... But they are fun, light and can be easily modded.

I knew a guy who raced one as well.

Stacy's Miata is pretty badass. I wasn't sure I would like it with that body kit but it grew on me. Like his mullet, it just takes gettin used to.

I think he got most of his stuff from Monster Miata.

So it's a AC Cobras little sister.
hell it's blue with white stripes too!

This little car kicked ass, all from a 91 mustang,gt40 heads, intake, paxton supercharger,trans,front end and I think axle?

miatas are autocrossing awesomeness too, they are awesome cars that look a little feminine, but like a hot chick, you know you wanna go for a ride.

i painted one for a guy awhile back. he had a turbo put on the stock motor and had it tuned, it was pretty quick. i wouldnt want one myself, but to each his own.

I like how the rollbar comes up to the top of your neck... That will keep it from getting scratched in the event of a rollover-

Having taken a supercharged Miata for a couple of hot laps around Texas Motor Speedway, I can assure the car runs exceedingly well.... Since then the car has received the 1.8 motor.

I always thought they were majorly rainbow until I saw a miata 327 build, THEN the AC Cobra analogy popped in my head. Underpowered, decent handling car with the power it should have had from the beginning.

Don't know if I'd ever own one, and still think the stock ones are like MR2's, for the guys that are too chicken to just come out of the closet, but a fast car is a fast car and the looks on the last body update are actually pretty decent.

Still think I'll just do an AC kit one day, same price as buying and modding a miata and and least I'd have something that looks like what I've always wanted :)

I did about the same with a friend's S2000..I harassed him for the car being gay until we went out for a drive.. That car was built for one purpose and Honda made it very obvious. FUN car. I imagine that even though a Miata doesn't have the power of the S2000, it's handling characteristics have to be a blast - then add in a 5.0...sick.
Do NOT compare an S2000 to a Miata! :twak
