    Jump in, jump out, snap to park, fun to drive. C5 doesn't quite fit the first 3 points.

    997 c2 (or c2s budget permitting). So much car for the money right now. But maybe too nice for what he’s using it for...

    There, I fixed it.

    I would vote PRHT NC as well. I don't know what your price range is, however. An NB may also be nicer driver, more refined.

    If he isn't afraid to turn a wrench, an e46 with standard features may be a nice car for him too.

    How about a "hot hatch"? Very practical with good performance. I own a Fiesta ST as my DD and it's a hoot to drive.

    I found the NA Miata to be the best driver's car hands down; however, the MR2 Spyder is a bit more modern and exciting. Given the price and availability of C5 Vettes, I'd recommend one, but it doesn't seem to suit your dad's immediate needs.

    This list includes four-doors, which can be handy.

    NC Miata hardtop?
    E46 M3? (scrupulously maintained, if he can find one)
    STi?
    Evo?
    Mazdaspeed Miata?

    NC1's are dirt cheap right now. Never really liked the car myself but suits your dad's needs. Also a tiny bit more roomy than the NA/NB.

    You are using the wrong metric. For making a car purchase decision the most effective metric is SPM (Smiles Per Mile).

    Yeah, because if his dad leaves any money to Rob it will just get spent on fast cars anyway.

    Maybe an NC PRHT(power retractable hard top for non-Miata nerds)? I personally prefer the looks of the softtop and removable hardtops aren't very easy to find for NCs.
