This looks fantastic - what colour is that? Great wheels & rollbar too.
Its Montego Blue, alloys are BBS M-Edition that came as standard on S-Special models smile

Was at Le Mans 2012 a month ago in mine.

Pretty much standard 1992 1.6 MX5, 60k on the clock and a real hoot anytime a corner shows up. Managed 32mpg over the 830 mile trip (urban/85mph cruising):

Sorry I didn't get to the PH meet - it was after 4 when we got back from San Saturnin.

Well we bought the Gold MX new in 1998 and liked it so much after 107K miles that I bought an 04 plate with 30K miles!

Shortly before signing over the paperwork and leaving my hands.

4 and a half years of MX-5's, this one and the Mk1. Without a shadow of doubt, the most perfect all-round cars I could have had, given the time, the budget, my needs. So much fun drivingfrown

God, I just love NA/NB MX-5s with roll bars and some proper wheels... Blows away the girlie look of the stock cars (relax, ex-NA owner here, getting NB next season).

Hi,

My lurking days are over. All the info on here really helped with finding my car so I never needed to ask any questions. It seems they've all been asked (and answered) already.

Here's my car a 93 Mk1 S-Special.


Am absolutely loving it.

Is removing the hardtop a two man job? I always imagined you could do it on your own.

It can be done by yourself, but I was a MX5 hardtop removal virgin and didn't want anything untoward to happen to my new car!
