MIATA LIFE MIATA LIFE! I got this Miata in trade a while back and had intended to shoot it outdoors but never got a chance. The sun is out and I don’t have any plans today though so I figure it’s time. The Mazda Miata is perhaps one of the most iconic Japanese roadsters of all time thanks to it’s lightweight and perfect weight distribution. They may not have had a whole lot of power (between 115 and 131 depending on what motor you had) but the combo of lightweight, RWD and manual meant enthusiasts loved to drive them. One day I’d like to own a Miata as well, though not an NA like this 1/18 Kyosho.
