    Only two types of people drive Miatas:
    Divorced Women and Gay Men. (words to live by)

    BUT
    why do I want a Saturn SKY so bad then? Very similar cars and they look fun as hell.

    Because, using your "logic," you are either a) a divorced woman or b) a gay man. :hay:

    so real men only drive big huge cars?

    you guys need to grow up, seriously. The miata is a very fun car. I'd buy one if I wasn't 6'5"

    Seriously though, the more I learn about them, the more I want one. I just wish they had a little more horsepower.

    I think the 2005 Mazdaspeed Miata had 177hp. The new 2006 MX-5 has 170hp. :rolleyes: Either way, unimpressive.

    I'm sure you can boost the shit out of them, but I'm talking stock. They'd sell more of them if they put in the Cobalt SS' supercharged 2.0L. Now, before I get flamed, I don't like the Cobalt, but that engine would be a good choice for the Solstice and the Sky.

    Most of the time when I see a Miata, the driver is a 45 year old man that looks to be slightly wealthy or atleast have a little money. It seems to me that they are toys for men that got extra cash. I dont know how anyone would want to buy one to be their primary vehicle.

    there are only 2 type of males that drive miatas.

    1. :greddy:
    2. Have no testosterone and on the soft side that cry along with their girlfriend when watching titanic. the type who is sensitive, understanding, and in touch with their feminine sides.

    :mamoru:

    other than that, it's a cute car and i'm sure you guys would love to own it bcause i'ts mad handling & made to boost!!!!

    driving a miata is like telling everyone that you're coming out of the closet without actually having to telling them.

    and the reasoning of made tight handling yo & made for boost is like a gay guy saying it's genetic & a disease.

    If I cared what others think of what I drive, I would've bought a Boxster for autocrossing but got a Miata instead

    I owned a 300ZX before the Miata and the Miata is 10x more fun to drive, at the track and on the street. 1.08G's > your ride.
