Only been from people at work. However, the one guy who started the *** thing at work is also the guy that gets upset when I don't let him drive it. Go figure. I actually see significantly more guys driving miatas in town than girls. The ones they are driving don't even look bad *** like mine. At least after the DE in June I can say I've had it on a track. What's *** about that?

I've only had this happen once, about three years ago while driving by the beach on PCH in Carlsbad. I had a male passenger in the car, a customer of ours from China, when an early 90s Mustang roared up beside us and the two 20-something occupants (both Guidos) shouted some epithets out the window while performing a ricer flyby.

My passenger (who spoke only limited English and was on his first trip to the US) was somewhat confused by this, and I didn't even attempt to explain it. We then proceeded to meet up with everyone else at a nice restaurant where, as usual, he ordered a plate of french fries. (Apparently french fries are not a popular food item in Guangzhou, and he'd become addicted to them.)

I've been dailying my stock 10AE for almost a year now and haven't gotten yelled at yet. I think it just depends on the miata. Some of them appear significantly more gay than others. And like someone else said, when comments do come, it's always from some douche in a huge truck.
But It's still gay....come on!!! lol

Oh I always get it is a girl car from my cousin that built a honda to destroy me, and when I left car lenths on him...... He went out and bought a GT mustang and was scared to death to race the 6 psi car. LOL

I thought the stock mustangs where faster than that. But he is slowly modding it. I won't be suprised when he throws a S/C on it.

But yea, it actually is a girl car.... I don't mind that. And lets put this in perspective.

They are cheap to come by and are fast for a small amount of money. If you have $5000, and are a good tight person like me. You can buy a nice NA miata and have 220hp in no time. And mabe some lowering springs and shocks etc. , A pretty fun track car.

Where if you where buying new........I wouldn't spend $27,000 on a MIATA! I'm thinking used Vette, Porche, WRX, Audi, New mustang ETc. etc.. etc....The list goes on.

But for a budget convertable beast. Best bang,,,, The dollars go far.

I typically have a pretty lady in the passenger seat when I am out with the top down, but even riding solo I have never had the gay comments coming up on 7 years and 3 Miatas other than from friends who know me. Last night I was out with such a lady and some punks in a Gti pulled up next to me with their windows down and music bumping, they stared at her and the car with envy. But most guys would be envious if they saw her, a slim Bulgarian fitness instructor working on her Masters in nutrition. Now if only my freaking 6UL's would get here it would look even better!!

Seriously, I guess I'm lucky. I hear all the time about people catching flak, but I never get anything besides compliments.

If it happened I probably wouldn't give a crap...verbal junk can just roll off the shoulder. I worry more about the subconscious perception of small cars being "in the way" most SUV drivers have. Coming off a sport bike, I still see a lot of people treat the Miata just like they did the bike, with serious desrespect regarding your ownership of the lane.

And unlike being called a ***, having someone change lanes into you can get you injured or killed.

Neither would I. That said, you can buy a new 08 for $18K pretty easily right now. That puts it in "disposable commuter car" price range when looking at new.

There was even a WSJ article about it a week or two ago. What boggles my mind is that there are tons of CL ads with people trying to peddle used 06's for the same money.

This is one of the things I think of when I begin to consider making my car quieter. People don't see me very well as is..

There is one ******* at work that is always calling it a gay car. He thinks he's being funny, each and every time.

Said ******* drives a fake wood paneled minivan.

You should start laughing really ******* hard every time he says it...see how long it takes him to figure out you're laughing at him and not with him.

Owning a Miata and a lifted Jeep gives you both perspectives, and both are equally as fun.

Ask him if he is moonlighting as a soccer mom.

I get the comments from friends that own mustangs about how my car is "gay" or a "girls car". Normally the literate and educated (see what I did there?) car community knows better, and I get quite a few complements when I'm out.

Well if you look at it logically mini-van vs Miata, I'd say the Miata is more likely to have gay people owning it. Think about it. What do straight people typically have that gays don't? A pile of kids. What is better for transporting kids, Miata or Mini-Van?

I prefer the "gay" stigma over the "50something white guy with meshback driving gloves and a flat cap" stigma. Seriously this isn't a ******* MG you *****!

Besides, we all know the real pole smokers are Mini drivers.

Actually the poll that the radio dj's were talking about (two or three years ago) said that gay men drove Jeep Wranglers more commonly than any other vehicle.

Lol, I am the only non Russian in my company... these guys had some choice words for me when they saw my black 99; but when I got the yellow 02 it was even worse. Though sweet justice is mine! As much as they think it is a gay as hell ride, when we all go out for a trip... guess what......... the girls fight over who rides with me! So as much as they like to think it's a gay car, I am the only one driving without another dude sitting next to me!

Best part about people ragging on the miata and saying it is a chick car, gay ride, and whatnot is the fact that most are driving something like a silver accord or maroon camary. Sorta funny how they try to blend in and hide whereas us miata drivers will go the other route. Normally I am not shy about pointing this part out. In fact I generally opt to challenge the bastards to a chick magnet test. You bring your generic ride and I'll bring my gay car and see who gets attention first. Have not lost yet!!!!!

Never once in the 6+ years of ownership.
