Hey guys - Miatas are great cars and agree with Mike and Victor. But a Miata
and a Roadster are very different, and that is why we drive (mostly) Datsun
Roadsters. I like my Roadster because it: is unique, a blast to drive, can
drive the stew out of it without worries,.......... - in short I have never
driven a car that gave me as much pride and grins per mile. Roadster folks
are great people, which contributes to the fun of owning one. Like Alex -
if we wanted a new sports car we would buy one, but I would not know how to
act without grease under my finger nails, bloody knuckles, 90wt in my
PS the only new car that I like (and affordable) is the new Mini Cooper S -
front drive but still a neat little car.

I have to admit that I have a lot of respect for the Miata. They are
on he autoX course and speaking to a real Miata owner is exactly
speaking to a Datsun Roadster nut. They both get misty while talking
that perfect road.
I believe that Mazda is also roadster nuts as well. They seem to
proper spirit. Unlike other car production runs, where a great
sports car is
produced and subsequent models get bastardized down to "sporty"
Miata has been becoming more of a sports car as it ages.
I would be a proud Miata owner.
