Rediscover the joys of driving a simple car! There are many reasons why the Miata holds the Guiness world record as the best-selling roadster of all time, but the simple truth is - it's mad fun. It's a cult classic, a consummate antidote to road rage, a magic mood-lifter, a telepathic dance partner. It's the answer to... well, everything.
Whether you are a pathological car nut or just someone looking to enjoy a Sunday drive, this is your car. Since its debut in 1990 the Miata has evolved to keep up with the times. This one is a darn clean example of the very first year of the very first generation, the car that started it all: a burbly 1.6L four-cylinder, 50/50 weight distribution and a paltry 2,000 pounds to fling about on four skinny tires. And, of course, it's a manual and it's rear-wheel-drive.
The car is tiny. Driving through a sea of beige and gray, everything else on the road will seem like a bloated monstrosity. This can be weirdly amusing and you may catch yourself grinning silly. Don't be alarmed - this is normal. Especially if the top is down and the sun is out.
(I love driving new cars. If anyone is interested in swapping cars for a day or two let me know!)
- I'd be happy to deliver the car anywhere in the DC/MD/NoVA. Normal delivery fees apply.
