miata bashing... why?

07-17-2007, 05:36 PM
can someone please explain it to me? is there something wrong with this little gem? little as it may be, IT'S A SPORTS CAR/ROADSTER, they aren't supposed to be big and heavy and bulky. theya re built to be light and handle like nothing else. which they do might i add. i used to drive one for a few months, was waiting on my friend to get back from Iraq and he wanted his car to be driven so it wouldnt just sit there and seize. i've gotta tell you it was some of the best fun i've ever had. no understeer. the balance of it all. the way the car just hugged the road and took the turn. it was amazing. ok, maybe it doesnt have the most power. so what. this is a car for the twists and turns not straight line driving. which it can be modified to do tho. it might not have the most room, but who needs room when you've got your car, some tunes, and a windy road ahead of you? why must people bash a miata? honestly? i've seen these things do some dangerous handling (some by me) and walk away unscathed. STOCK!!!! i just hope someone can explain as to why this little gem is harassed. it is not a CHICKS CAR as some put it. it just isnt a "I HAVE A SMALL DICK SO I'LL MAKE UP FOR IT WITH THIS FAST CAR" CAR. that's all i'm saying.

because just listen to the name of it, miata. Its probably the most feminen name of a car out there, and as much as i like the car yea women do usualy drive it and so do gay men. Either way i dont see why anyone would let it bother them especially if you have a car you take the to track it tends to start looking pretty mean after the erge of getting better performance comes. Or of course you could always just act completely gay and people probably wont bother you either.

When the RX7 was in its heyday, Mazda dropped it as it had become known as a "woman's" car. It was replaced with what I feel is the least desireable car on the road—the RX8. Shame! There were so many good possibilities for that engine. Maybe someday, there will be a roadster version without the wimpy rear seats!

My opinion...

the rx7 was dropped for the rotary just not working out as technology evolved and they could never get forced induction to work properly with it. They brought it back in the rx8 just because they realised what a cult they left behind when ditching the rotary, plus the engine became a label for the company's history they could not just leave behind. They were still able to make a pretty well performing car without the turbocharger so they are continuing with it in later models. Atleast this is what i've heard from everyone back when i owned a 7.

dude, just have fun in your miata. like the other one said, they are jealous. and who said miata sounds like a chick car? I am a chick and i know plenty of people who drive miata's that are dudes and they have a blast in them! I also have a friend who tricked his out and drifts it now. Just have fun and screw all those haters!:)

I blame corky romano. Holywood seems hell bent on ruining the name of the miata.

the simple fact is that the miata is an extreamly capable sports car and in reality it more of an old mans car than a chick car anyway.

It dose get fairly annoying getting picked on all the time for driving one though
