Well, there are some great deals out there on Miatas
if you shop around.  I recently bought a beautiful '91
that I am having a ball with.  Everything works, the
car looks like new, never wrecked, a few blemishes
here and there, but normal for a car that is driven,
it does have over 200k on the odo, but drives and runs
flawlessly. $2000. It gets 33 mpg regularly, and I
drive it a lot.  I do not like it as much as my
roadster, but it is fun and cheap transportation. I
love to see the roadster appreciation though...
