My '98 M Roadster is a garage queen (less than 5k miles). Moreover, it will probably remain a garage queen. I need a car that I don't give a damn about cosmetically. Something with a stick (need to practice heal & toe downshifts) that handles well and is mechanically reliable. Seems like a one-owner used Miata would be just the ticket. I might also want to install a roll cage and racing seat and try my luck at autocross -- again the Miata seems perfect. I also understand that they can be turbo/supercharged with good result if I ever want to bump the power. I'd like to spend $10k to $12k on a stock Miata. What do you guys and gals think about all this? Presumably I should be able to get a '96 model for this price? Any and all comments would be appreciated (except for comments urging me to break out the bimmer -- I just can't bring myself to exposing that car to the real world just yet)!
