My classic car of the week, Mazdz MX5 (1989 - 1997)

In 1989,the Japanese motor industry came of age and Mazda built the MX5. In short the MX5 was the perfect roadster for those who wanted a british style sports car. The lighter early 1.6 was favoured and proved totally dependable and became Mazda's flag ship model until it was axed in 1997.

PROS - Good to drive - reliable
CONS - Rusty sills - a lack of soul

Fact file - only 98,631 are left in circulation.

Owned an early 1.6 with the 120bhp motor on cams and what a car it was. I'll own another one day.

Great fun little cars.

Not very practical and hard to live with.

For all it defined what a cheap small roadster should be, I still don't see it as a classic though.
