hello.....and be gentle.

hi all.....another Miata nut here......I just want to say....when the Elise is unleashed onto the streets......be gentle....try to stay away from all Black Miatas.......one of them will be me......if you pull up next to me at a light......I'm liable to burst into tears with envy ......the Elise is everything I want my car to be.....except with a stereo. I love the car. anyway.....can't wait to jump into some twisties with you cats........

I spend a bit of time on Miata net, even though I race MR2 Spyders. You have to know your enemy. heh.

Miata.net is a good site.

I expect that the traffic and interest in the Elise are just a small fraction of what we will see as more information is released.

Hi there,
I kinda count miata/eunos/MX-5 owners as lotusphiles because the miata's suspension is practically a direct copy of the original 1960's elan's.

Welcome to the world of Lotus!

if it ain't broke........ all that time since then and these cars with these new fangle dangle magnetically controlled GPS monitored suspensions.....and still....lack the finesse of a plain Jane 4 wheel double wishbone with unequal arms.
