1990 Mazda Miata

The Mazda MX-5 Miata turns 25 this year. So does the car Road Test Editor Mike Schlee calls his daily driver. A few years back he purchased a first year Miata. Far from leading a pampered life, it’s lived a hard 25 years and seen more miles than any sports car should. In honor of the 25th anniversary of the Miata’s introduction, here is Mike’s story of how we came across his car and what it’s like after all these years.

My dad was coming over one warm spring Saturday morning to help with our latest home improvement project. Having arrived in town a bit early, he decided to indulge in one of his favorite pastimes, perusing yard sales.

2014-Chevrolet-Camaro-Convertible-03

Chevrolet’s auto show debut schedule must be getting busy because the brand chose Frankfurt to debut the convertible version of its refreshed Camaro.

The drop-top version of Chevy’s roaring muscle car wears the same thinner-looking headlights, revised rear lamps and vented hood as the refreshed car first shown in New York earlier this year. Of course, the car also gets an updated version of Chevrolet’s MyLink infotainment system.

As a mid-cycle refresh, there aren’t any notable mechanical changes to discuss. The car still comes with a 6.2-liter V8. Sprinting from zero to 60 mph in the convertible takes 5.4 seconds according to Chevrolet — that’s 0.2 seconds slower than the coupe.
