Mazda Mita ...

Miata?

Well....I has one now.

It is my Xmas gift.

Found one in Tucson AZ and after a few phone calls I flew out there a while back and picked it up and drove it back to LA. It's a 2004 with 24k miles and 2nd owner.

Its going to be a weekend/track car. Almost forgot how nice a light car with a Spanish transmission was.

Looks like fun.

???? I thought Toyo Kogo (Mazda) and Aisin built the transmissions.

He's probably got the model with the Manuel transmission.

Oh wow. So essentially the last super-miata!

I'm in a 2013 328i now. Had it about 4 months. Really like it and will enjoy it until BMW comes out with a 4 door 1 Series M.
