To my surprise, my co-pilot Claudia Krusch of TrendyLatina.com insisted I play music I like on our test drive. She then asked a silly question: “Are you having fun?”
“Fun?? I’m in a manual Miata in California, blasting heavy metal, with a beautiful Brazilian woman in the passenger seat. I’ve had this dream many times.”
The Mazda MX-5 truly is a motorist’s dream come true. Cheap to insure, with go-kart handling, the best manual transmission in the business, a significant speed upgrade and finally room for tall drivers, the 2017 Miata is a steal for <$30k.
