Serious question though. If you were looking at Miata's, which gen would you get? Would you go for the super cheap first gen (1.6L) or get the updated one with the 1.8L engine and a few more 'safety' features. I think the power to weight stays about the same, and the second gen is supposed to be pretty true to the design. Doesn't have the pop up lights, but I don't really care all that much about that slash it's probably more aerodynamic without it.
I've read that the 2nd gen was eh and the first and third are the most reasonable, but the 3rd gen NC's don't seem to get much love.
If I could make something like this work, I'd really entertain selling off my bike in a year.
Blue book value for a 92 is about 2500 for a car with 120k miles on it in good condition. Honestly, that probably gives me wiggle room if the car needs anything soon (tires/brakes/etc).
Edit: There's no rent a wreck near me. Do you guys know of any rental company that still rents out manuals? My housemate knows how to drive stick and I'm sure I could get him to show me the basics and play with it for a weekend.
