Behold the classic 2002 Mazda MX5! To quote Jeremy Clarkson it's "the ultimate driving experience". Get the specs on this
  • 1,839 cc 1.8 liters 4 in-line front engine with 83 mm bore, 85 mm stroke, 10 compression ratio, double overhead cam, variable valve timing/camshaft and four valves per cylinder
  • Multi-point injection fuel system
  • 142 HP @ 7,000 rpm; 125 ft lb , 170 Nm @ 5,000 rpm
  • Wishbone front and rear suspension with stabilizer bar independent with coil springs
  • Coefficient of drag: 0.38
  • Leather covered steering wheel
  • Wind deflector behind seats

In other words it goes fast and is a blast to drive.


As a two seater, it can just about hold myself, cherub and Ned. What it cannot do is
  • Accomodate cherub + one other pal
  • Accomodate two dogs
  • Allow easy access and exit for anyone with stage 4 bone cancer. To do this, you need to take the roof down and sort of drop them into the seat.

Memo to self, get job, get new car.
