Corvette or Miata?
 
Hey guys, this is recycle13s fiancÚ (when you read this babe, I'm sorry.. Was just trying to help. I'm making steak & baked potatoes for dinner just the way you like it).
Redcycle13 is a corvette man through & through owning many z06 vettes, road race and track vettes over the years. Recently a young girl ran a red light and hit us, totaling out his baby, a 1200HP c5 corvette he built from the ground up and, owned over 10 years. He likes power.
Now he's thinking about getting a 2016 Miata convertible. He's never owned a Miata or test drove one. If any of you guys have ever debated this decision, owned or track drove a Miata could you leave a comment on your personal experience. Also what you see as pros or cons or maybe which c5, c6, or c7 would be cheaper than a Miata. Thank you guys! I appreciate any feedback you have to offer!

I've never driven/owned a Miata because I'm a hetero male, but C5's can be had at reasonable prices right now. That would be the route I would go. :thumbs:

This is a great way to get that wedding canceled! :thumbs::cheers:

Homosexuals drive Miatas, is your fiance a homosexual? Maybe he needs counseling.

Oh, and just for the record - a C5 is just a new C4

:willy:

My cousin has had many Miatas and he is no homo.....not that there is anything wrong with that of course....

the kid C6 07-28-2016 04:28 PM

Test drive the Miata, and then get back to us.

Well the new Miata almost was selected the 2016 COY by Motor Trend over the new 2016 Camaro if that tells you anything about how they think about them. Supposed to be a fun car to drive even if low on power compared to a vette ! :cheers:

indeed...:eek:

surprise him with a Miata or better yet, Fiat 500, those things are wicked fast, you can mod the crap out of them and they are inexpensive to maintain. Don't tell him your plans.....as a matter of fact, in a PM that he sent me he was singing the praises of the Fiat 500 wishing that he had one. :yesnod:

He loves surprises so keep it on the down low. :cheers:

Would "he" be interested in a lightly used one?

Reliability of the FIAT is below par. The Miata is perfectly balanced 50/50.

Performance and RELIABILITY are the key issues and ANY GM product is questionable.....
