    Default Happy Girly-Car Birthday!

    Apparently today's the 20th Anniversary of the Miata's Debut, so all you miata owners take your baby for a lap around the block to congratulate her! (him? )

    It's amazing how many 20 year old 1990 models are still on roads and racetracks. Next year when she's legal I'll take her out for a drink.

    Funny, but I remember exactly where I was when I first saw a Miata. It was parked on the street in Ojai where my wife and I were taking a little weekend vacation. It was red. I thought that's pretty cool, the Japanese really got this one right.

    1992 Honda (Acura) NSX 5-MT - classic investment I couldn't resist and occasionally drive
    2004 Honda S2000 AP2 6-MT - track day car
    2006 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution IX MR 6-MT - when I need a backseat, 4-doors, or a real trunk, and still want to haul ass . . .

    Happy Birthday to the little tykes.
    After owning two Mustang GTs, 3 Jeep Wranglers, a Trans-Am Ram-Air, a Z06, a Dodge Hemi 1500, a Toyota Tacoma, a Scion TC, and a Mazdaspeed3, I can say the only thing as fun to drive as the Miata is my sportbike. And maybe the Jeeps when on an decent off-road trail.

    And no one ever accuses you of over compensating for lacking in other areas...

    I'm gonna take my baby around Laguna Seca for hopefully lots of laps for it's birthday - even if mine is only 10.

    Aside from their cost I never understood why people race them.

    Default girly car?

    And a Mini is the pinnacle of masculine transport?

    You know what they say about compensating for something? It goes both ways
