Getting owned and restored a quantity of common import athletics cars and trucks in the earlier I was energized when I got to travel my first Miata and love receiving behind the wheel of any MX5. If you are looking for the best car for commuting, enjoyment weekend getaways, and a track-working day or autocross every single now and once more you cannot go wrong with a Miata.
