The first generation of the Mazda Miata has been jokingly referred to as a hairdresser’s car. This was largely due to its puny size and cute demeanor. However, the first generation Miata’s reputation slowly evolved over time. People realized after a while that the car actually handled pretty well. Car enthusiasts started to take notice. These days, the car is praised as one of the best handling cars of all time.

Alex wanted to have a separate car apart from his daily driver to use on the weekends. He stumbled upon a 2004 Mazdaspeed Miata that had an incredibly low 23,000 miles on the clock. He couldn’t pass this amazing car up and purchased the vehicle. Alex has done few mods to his Miata because he knows how pristine the vehicle is. Because he believes it will be a future collectible, he plans to keep it that way.
