I actually should have titled it the "Whoring Thread" 

So I'll start........

Just for fun, in addition to my car and truck  I'm thinking about buying a Mazda Miata or a Honda S2000 to tool around town in. Thought it might be fun to drive to the course, grocery store. Short jaunt thing. 

Anyone have/had one. Heard good/bad things?

Do you find as you get older that you like to celebrate your birthday even more or just wish everyone would forget
about it?

I'm at the point I'm hoping no one remembers.....

Good luck finding one that runs and I thought you already had the mullet.  :P

Def want small and open top.  Actually looked at an MG at a neighbors. Worried about keeping it running. Parts are a nightmare
to find.  Same with the Triumph.  Always wanted a TR-7 back when.

My first car out of college was a 2nd handed Lotus Elan and it was a nightmare to maintain but it was definitely a chick magnet at the time.  If you want fun, open top and hassle free, get a Miata or copper S convertible.  You really don't want your ride to spend half the time in the shop or waiting for parts from the other side of the world.

Hadn't thought about the Cooper..... might just fit the bill nicely - will have a look.

I thought the S2000 might be hard to find but it looks like there are quite a few of them out there.

I have actually come to a point where I have forgotten my own birthday. And I am not that old. I don't care much for my own birthdays anymore. Rather celebrate the birthdays of my kids and wife.

I am at the age that every birthday counts unfortunately.  Perhaps I should change my handle to UncleD since people call me that anyway.

A friend of mine has an S2000.  He's a real car guy (once had a Noble and also had a replica '50s Porsche built with a 911 engine).  Anyway, he loves the S2000.

If they got anywhere near my ball they'd have my driver shoved up their ass! Lol.

Based on 2 things, looks and reviews, I'd go with the S2000 :)

I picked this up 2.5 weeks ago. 6.7 turbo diesel, with tuner about 450 rwhp and 1000 ft lbs of torque. Weighs over 7000 lbs, 4x4, but still gets 20 mpg on the highway.
