Last Call: A Miata on a Gravel Road is a Glorious Thing

What’s your favorite type of road? One of mine is a nicely graded stretch of gravel. You don’t need to be going flat out to enjoy your vehicle as the limits come way down, while the fun goes way up.

    i try not to be That Miata Guy, but gosh dang it they’re just such good cars. I take my NA everywhere, drive it like I stole it, and it doesn’t skip a beat.
