Unhappy So, what's the best way to break into a Miata?

I rarely drive my Miata, as the SoCal folks know. After my smog check two months ago, I checked the mileage based on the previous smog check (2008) and noted that I've driven a total of 5000 miles in two years. A good chunk of those are probably to/from track days.

Anyway, my Miata generally sits in the garage, gets started about once a week. But today I felt bold and decided to drive it to work. Hard top on, bolted in and padlocked too (Beatrush side latches. They're awesome and I recommend them.).

Long story short, I lock up the passenger door, then climb out of my seat, and lock the driver's door. As I'm walking away, I realize that in my pocket is not my key, but my security card. And somewhere between pulling the key out of the iginition and locking up, I must have dropped the key inside the car.

So now my car is parked, hard top on, windows up (power, not manual), and locked. How do I break in? AAA is going to be a while...

Go home and get your spare key. Other than that, I've got nothing and I don't want to give any would-be thieves any ideas, either. Good luck!
