The Miata (aka MX5) gets heavier, more complex, more computers, more buttons, more automatic crap, more technology, more "comfort"... over time it's slowly lost its' soul. Starting in '00, you couldn't even get manual windows anymore. Because of that, at this point in my love-affair with this ******* car, there's no way I could buy anything newer than a '99

Wasn't the demographic for the '90 a 23yr-old female fresh-outa-college elementary school teacher? And with the NC, it's a 60yr-old freshly-retired-from-the-workforce male baby-boomer. How the hell did we get here?
so very true...everything that makes a miata a miata is slowly passing away. the new ones are much bigger imo, and cost upwards of 25k..holy ****, thats close to s2k territory.

Ps: give the 00's some love dont lump me in with the 60 y/o's
