Bought a new 1990 Miata and drove it daily for 2 years in Dallas traffic as a regional sales executive. I stared into truck wheels at every redlight and could feel the heat from the radiator fan of the truck behind. While driving down the highway at 60 mph the truck infront drove over a sizable log. My front left tire was unable to avoid this obstacle and it blew my front left tire and cracked the alloy wheel. The car did a couple of 360 degree spins and I ended up stopped in the right side break-down lane. I was very lucky. I changed the tire, drove to the Madza dealer and traded for a 626. I do miss that Miata. I never had a vehicle that shifted easier or handled better.
