Default What else do miata owners drive?

Im curious as to what other cars CR menbers own/drive. My interest comes from an incident that happened earlier today. I was with a friend at a stop light, waiting to make a left turn. Two guys (maybe in their late 20's), who looked to be just a bit older than us pulled up in a nice mustang (post 2005 gt) and the passenger said "Is that what you buy when you cant afford a 350z?" lol.

We were in my friends 91 240sx thats actually well taken care of with very tastefull mods/wheels/sr20 blah blah..

I waited for my friend to reply since it is his car... and all he said was "yeah.." and we made our left. I told him ive never had anyone actually tell me something like that but, multiple people have laughed at my miata. hahaa. (might be the black fender... no... its because its a miata. lol).

My friend also owns an e46 M3 and a 94 turbo Teggy. He could have shut them up telling them he owns an M3 but wasnt worth the effort. For all we know their reply could have been " and i have a ferrari at home, highly doubtful but, possible)

I dont really care what people think about what i drive. After this incident tho, im curious as to what some of you guys have as second cars and DDs. I have a feeling there are some pretty bad ass cars in the same garage as the miatas..

POST PICS/ and any MODS LIST if youd like.

Ill start

I have a tuned 335i that rarely sees the street. (just not as fun as the miata.) pics later.

I would have asked him, is that what you drive because your a douchebag? Then if they started shit I would not be shy about swopping paint. That's the freedom of not driving something nice.

I DD a CRV because it was free. My wife has a Legacy. I'm always torn on a DD, I put about 70 miles a day on my car and always feel like its a waste to have anything nice. I would love to get out of the CRV and get a WRX Wagon.

Uk/european car, Vauxhall Vectra 2.2. Just a normal comfy car, nothing fancy, nothing fast. Bought my Mx5 for a more fun weekend car.

I daily my mazdaspeed 6 and occasionally autox it when the Miata is out of commission. Which is always lol. I've thought about getting rid of it multiple times but I just like it too much. Just a few minor bolt ons and a tune so farbut eventually wanna do a compound turbo set up.

I used to DD my 96 until I painted it. now it only gets driven on weekends and autoxs. I DD my S10 and I also have a 5th gen Prelude SH 5sp that my wife DD and an AE86 that's getting prepped for a mix of drift/track duty. I just sold my wife's old DD, a 2000 mustang GT.

As u can see, I'm not loyal to any particular brand/car, but my Miata is my favorite.

Those guys were pricks and your buddy answered them perfectly.

And my girly car:

my old car, 1995 dodge neon ACR, with 2.4 swap, sport trans, low, and some SRT seats.
it was super fun before it blew up ;-(
very good cheap car.
i'd build another for a daily driver given the opportunity.

Well, the yellow 94 is currently in the garage with no motor getting a turbo strapped to it. It served as DD for a long time. No AC or PS, gutted interior, lotus seats, etc. Now I DD a 91 w/ a 1.8 swap, FM sways (that came off the 94), and heliums. The wife has an 04 Mazda3 5 speed, bone stock, that I drive occasionally. Why drive anything but Mazda?

The three in the driveway are our other cars. The RX-7 is my fiances. The 335 and MS3 are mine.

Don't worry, the 335 sits outside and the mazdas are all garaged


Before the 335 I had an X3
