Hi guys,

Give a warm welcome to my new little Miata. I decided to put my Fiero up for sale and purchase a 1990 Miata. I took one out for a test drive and found it was an absolute blast to drive, it doesn't have the torque of my V6, but loves to rev up to the 7200 RPM redline and makes some pretty sweet noises while doing it too I have had some unforgettable memories in my Fiero, but I just felt like I wanted to try driving something different for a while. My Fiero was my first car, and the only car I have only driven, so I figure I should try and drive some other vehicles before I get married and have to buy a minivan!! Anyways, I plan on keeping in touch with you guys and checking out the forum regularly for the newest info. I just wanted to extend a thank you to all of you guys who helped me out with all of my mechanical problems, you guys are a lifesaver. I was very pleased to find out that the Miata drivers are just as die-hard enthusiasts as you guys are, and I found a neat little forum board like we have here for Miata owners, what a relief! So all thats left is finding a buyer for my 87 GT, drop me a line if you are near Saskatchewan and are interested, talk to you guys later.

Traitors!
Infidels!

Sorry. Just kidding.

That's a cool looking Miata. My wife usta have one. If it hadn't been a automatic, we'd probably *still* have it. She bought a Jeep, and was gonna let me have the Miata to play with, but I preferred my Fieros.
BTW...

Check out this link. http://www.monstermotorsports.com/

They're putting Ford 5.0s in Miatas.

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!

I'm not about to stone Loafer - that's a nice looking Miata. But, Loafer, I bet you haven't owned your last Fiero. Sooner or later you'll come across someone selling one for an unbelieveable price and you'll pick it up!

Nice looking car loafer... Hope you were expecting some good (and not so good) natured ribbing when you posted here though...

It doesn't surprise me the Miata guys are similar... The biggest difference between us and them in most situations is where you are standing...

It might be a few years, but you will be back... There is no such thing as an ex-Fiero fan...

LOL, easy on me guys!!! I still plan on getting my silver 88 GT dream car down the road, but right now I just wanted to try something a bit different. As it turns out, I might be able to have my cake and eat it too, my Dad is thinking about buying my 87 GT!

Hey Loafer, if that GT gets out of the family and you have an itchin' to drive a fiero, you will long for the ole days. If it is not necessary to part with your Fiero, don't. Sooner or later you will have SELLER'S REMORSE, if you're not sure that is the opposite of BUYER'S REMORSE - which you might just get with that RICER of yours.

loafer, Nice car but listen to the others. I had an 86 SE bought new in 86, 5 years later I got rid of it. Then about 5 years ago a friend stopped by with his 85 coupe and I missed the Fiero so much that I bought another 86 SE and have been very happy since. If possible keep the GT and slowly restore it to showroom condition. Use the Miata as your daily driver. That way when the urge to cruise comes over you, hop into the Fiero and go! There has never been or ever be a car as unique as the Fiero!

Congrats, loafer! You'll love it - they're great cars! Good luck with it and check back every once in awhile.

We'll leave the light on for you ...

What a Benadict Arnold! What a traitor. A Miata?!?!

Just kidding. Miata's are awsome cars to drive. I love those wheels on it. Have a great time with your new ride... and come back from the dark side someday!

Was watching Conan O'Brien the other night. The blond receptionist chick from Ally McBeal was on talking about Mazda giving her a Miata. Her qoute was that she found out that the majority of people who drive Miatas are divorced women and gay men. Have fun with your research.

Stimpy,

My wife wants a Miata. Is she trying to tell me something???

Nice car, loafer. There are as many interesting cars out there as Baskin-Robins has flavors. Enjoy it until the next one.

Just stay away from unfortunate choices like BNTOVER or PTRPUFR.
