I, like a few other members, joined the roadster ranks via a list of more brash and arrogant “sports cars”. The list includes silly turbo charged FWD vehicles like an ‘85 Dodge Shelby Charger, a ’92 Dodge IROC Daytona, and a Saab 9-3 Aero; and tire punishing RWD muscle cars like a ’65 Mustang GT and ’96 Z-28 Camaro. I finally got tired of all the turbo lag, under steer, and poorly-balanced chassis characteristics and made my first foray into a decent sports car with a ’99 BMW M3, which I loved to death but traded in for an AWD Subaru Forester to get us through the rough Idaho winters and terrain we recently moved from. I ached for another sports car ever since.

My opportunity came in the summer of 2015 as my wife and I made our way back to Indiana after 3 1/2 years in Idaho. With a much reduced commute to work, and lack of animal obstacles so common on Idaho roads, I decided now was as good a time as any to finally get ourselves a Miata. We found a 2000 silver LS flavor and snapped it up on the spot. It’s my daily driver, and I couldn’t be more thrilled with it. My wife and I love it so much we joined the Indy Miata Club, went on our first road rally, and have never looked back since. We are thrilled to be the stewards of this little NB Miata and look forward to many many more miles with the Indy Miata Club and her warm and welcoming members.
