It’s not unreasonable to expect to see a bunch of Miatas driving around here in the coming summer months. The weather might even be so nice as to permit a short drive with the top down. I shot this 1991 MX-5 yesterday, amidst weather reports that it had actually snowed in some parts of the country. That’s Finland for you.
On XXR wheels and with chrome Runabout mirrors (thanks Blake), the shiny red Miata is at its best. Take a closer look.
I think the stance is pretty perfect on it. I kind of believe it’s a second-hand American specification import, judging by the plates and side markers. Then again, it says “MX-5” on the bootlid, not “Miata”. The engine in it is the base 1.6-litre 115hp one.
The front has had a little knock on the plastic nose at some point. The paint, as shiny as it is, has a number on swirls on it I would eradicate as soon as possible – since the car is otherwise super clean.
The steering wheel has been replaced with an aftermarket item, and there are chrome rollover hoops.
This on-the-move shot depicts the Miata at its best – but the top needs to come down.
