Description

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!) Delivery: - I'd be happy to deliver the car anywhere in the DC/MD/NoVA. Normal delivery fees apply.

Extras (2)

Add optional Extras to your trip at checkout.

Prepaid refuel

Save time and make dropoff a breeze by adding this Extra, which allows you to return my car at any fuel level. Price does not include the cost of gas - I will request additional reimbursement based on the actual gas cost.

$10/trip

Post-trip cleaning

Return the car hassle free, without worrying about cleaning up after your trip. Does not cover upholstery cleaning, spills, stains, pet hair, or smoke removal.

$25/trip

Parking details

Street parking available. Shady Grove metro (Red line) is also within walking distance.

Guidelines

I do my best to keep this car as clean and original as possible. Thus, I kindly ask that in the car there be: no smoking no eating no coffee or sticky beverages no drivers who do not know how to drive a manual transmission

Faqs

  • Can I drive it in the rain?

    Absolutely - just don't put the top down. The car was designed to be used in all weather, i.e. it does not leak.

  • Your car is lovely, but it's 28 years old. Is it reliable?

    Like the rising sun. It's Japanese, has ridiculously low mileage and it's been well-maintained. I wouldn't hesitate to drive it anywhere.

  • How do I open the stupid gas tank?

    I feel your frustration. The gas tank release is in the cubby between the seats.

Lenny’s Miata is incredibly well maintained. It is immaculate and drives like new. Lenny is well organized and the entire process was a breeze.

Leonid was a great host. His responses to messages were quick and clear. He shared detailed instructions for picking up and operating the car which were easy to follow. The car itself was clean and is clearly well maintained. Unexpected warm weather allowed me to bring the top down which was a great experience.
