My friends and coworkers always ask me why I chose to buy a miata.

The reasons why I bought this car are typical:



1. the fun factor and

2. the handling characteristics.





Yet, there is more to a miata than just these 2, so please share yours.[/b]

I wanted a car that was:

-RWD
-Cheap
-Reliable
-Big aftermarket

I was going to get a Nissan 240SX and do an SR20 swap, but then I started reading about the Miata and turbocharging it, and I learned that it was going to be a better chassis to start with.

So here I am. :)

the chassis is amazing
lightweight
RWD
semi-sleeper
it's different

I originally wanted a 240 or AE86, but then I realized the 240 would go against my ultra-lightweight dreams, since I was planning on an RB25 or VQ swap, and I'd drop way too much $$ into an AE86 to make it as fast as I desired, and it was out of the picture almost right from the get-go cuz my mom was adamant that I drive a car with an airbag.

I don't have to deal with any annoying people in the back-seat either. glad I went with the miata,too, cuz it's been fun.

Cheap insurance
Cheap parts
Rear wheel drive
Good handling
Light weight
flip up lights
2 door
2 seats
Being the only one of my friends with a modified car that isn't a Honda

There are many more reasons

Hehe... I didn't even like Miatas either until my dad suggest I test drive one, at the time I really wanted a MR2, but was astounded by the maintenance costs.

Drove it once and fell in love! I bought it a year later for $2000.

I guess why I bought it was because it was so fun to drive... plus not a lot of people around here have them :mrgreen:
