Same here. I'll love it more when it's boosting I'm sure, but it's fun the way it is.

You know it's fun, but my old 86 Trooper II is more fun. It's all the same things the miata has, but more. It's just fun to drive. Only has 70HP, but like 160 ft/lbs of torque. Just fun to go through the gears, fun riding in, it's great. Dosn't corner well or none of that, but still surprisingly fun to drive. Plus it makes the miata feel like a vette after driving the trooper.

my other car is a VR6 jetta, and damn, it feels like a truck everytime I get into it after a Miata session. Love the power though, its completely irrelevant at what speed and gear you accelerate. I'd do anything for that kind of power curve in the miata.
