Do you remember the first time you ever tried something amazing and thought to yourself, “what rock have I been hiding under that it took me this long to know what I was missing?” It could have been the first time you went skydiving, or the first time you had a true croissant in gay Paris. Well, I am adding the Mazda MX-5 Miata to my list of things that I had no idea I needed in my life until now!
At the end of this decade the Mazda Miata roadster will be celebrating 30 years of its original introduction into the automotive market. Let me tell you a secret, you don’t sell a two door convertible roadster for that long if it doesn’t turn heads! And baby, you’ve come a long way! The new MX-5 model has been working out, adding new curves to its design that its predecessors did not have, making it a hot car for anyone to drive.
It has an absolutely beautiful interior, and for a two seater it has quiet an impressive amount of leg room. If you really want to have fun then I recommend the manual six speed transmission, it will add that extra feel to the road, to the tires, and to the overall experience.
Now, I am not suggesting you break the speed limit, but in the event that you accidentally do, you’re going to enjoy it! The convertible top is manual, and it pops on and off in seconds. It comes with XM radio and navigation, but let’s face it, I don’t care about getting lost in this baby, it is way too fun to drive, I will find my own way home!
Life is about living life to the fullest and enjoying every second of it, and the Mazda MX-5 is one of your tools to achieving that. It really is a fun and beautiful ride, and for $31,000 it does not break the bank at all! Mazda practically revived this market in the early 1990’s, and it is no wonder that their roadster has become the top selling model of any other brand of all time! (Look it up boys and girls)
I am thrilled and so appreciative to have been able to experience what I had been missing out on for so long, one of the coolest rides out there easily showing no signs of slowing down anytime soon. And why should it, I did not slow down while driving it, and neither should Mazda?! 😉
