Well this is happening.
Sat alongside on the other day at the lights....they are so small.
Great looking car, though.
Bigger than a GS
Holy shit, good price!
Wait for a 2019.
Passenger seat is cramped, no leg room and i am 6'0". Drivers side i fit perfect. Ladies love to be the passenger a d they always have more than enough room.
Still loving this car so much. 9200 miles since jan 27
Maybe it has the Bose sub woofer under the floor (or the foam block if no Bose)
No Bose you can pull the block and have the same legroom as drivers side...
Too lazy to do anything to it ha. Will probably never ride passenger again though
just in case
^ That's interesting.
We tried out an ND and @ 6'-6" I was real uncomfortable on the passenger side due to the lack of legroom.
I could not figure out why it was so much less than the drivers side.
Might be the glove box vs steering wheel.
no glove box....
In the pits of a timing belt+everything else job on my '91 right now. Worked on it for four hours Wed, four hours yesterday. Stopped work yesterday after getting the new water pump, crank and cam seals, t-belt, timing covers, and all the belts reinstalled. Still need to install the new radiator, replace the CAS o-ring, valve cover gasket, spark plugs, etc. Probably another 3 to 4 hours. Looks like I need to transfer all the mounting hardware off the old rad onto the new one.
I'm too old for this shit. Last time I did all this work on this car was 2005. I can't work on it for more than 3-4 hours at a time without killing my back and legs anymore from bending over so much.
I found the old water pump/alt belt so cracked and damaged I'm not sure it would have lasted another 500 miles Yet the PS/AC belt was fine. Both were the same age and mileage...
Mazda has been putting the ECU under the floor on the passenger side for years in the Miata. Probably still doing it. It eats up a couple of inches of leg room.
What do you guys think - the OG 14's or the newer 16's?
I really dont care for the morphed/twisted style of the NB 16's.
The 14's look much better to me on that car.
Though my personal favorite NA wheels are ones like these.
Neither.... 16's look like crap on NAs, and 14s are getting harder to find good rubber for. 15x7 w/ 195/55-15 for a cruiser, or 15x8 w/ 205/50-15 for performance.
If your sticking with one of the two you posted... go with the 14s.
I find it often helps to put my NA on jackstands when working under the hood for major projects. Saves a lot of bending, and if you need to get underneath for something, it's already up.
A few years ago when we were living in Tampa, we wanted to spend a few days in Key West. Looked into rental g a convertible for a week. Found a ‘94 Miata locally and bought it for $1400. That was the way to ride to KW.
Had a lot of gay comments and rainbow stickers put on it but I sure loved that car.
Put another grand into it and had a great time driving that thing for a couple more years. Sold it when we moved but am now contemplating another inexpensive, fun weekend convertible. (Maybe the automatic version this time.)
