In these days of non-car ownership, I’ve been driving my wife’s car to work, a 2000 Mitsubishi 4-door Galant ES. Automatic, of course. It’s not a bad car & since it has well functioning air conditioning, I am not missing my former ‘Big White Whale‘.
I’m still on the Miata hunt. Today I was able to check out & test drive a 1 owner 1999 model that was acceptable. Originally I had my heart set on an older 94 to 97 NA series model Mazda Miata. But, if I can find an acceptable 1999 NB model that is affordable, I may go that route. I have to admit that Isa, my wife, didn’t want me to go to an older, higher mileage model. Having driven a few 99’s now, I have to admit that I think I like them better.
I may have to work on some creative financing, but a newer NB model could be it. A few more days of searching & research my tell. We shall see.
