some one asked me if it was the new rx-7....
i couldent say anything for a second, then then told him that sadly they have discontinued that car.

i took that as a complament though, kinda pissed me off when a gas station worker asked me what kind of HONDA it was... (face palm)

Back when I had my Jensen Healey, people sometimes thought it was a Triumph. The Miata bears no resemblance to any Triumph I know of. Or any other car come to think of it.

I got the front wheel drive question after only 3 days of owning it. lol But nothing else yet. I'm more used to people thinking that my Honda VTX 1800 is a Harley. I actually feel a little insulted when asked that one. My X is way better than any HD. lol

Default Personally I didn't see it but...

My wife's daughter, all of 22 years old, in describing my car told her girlfriend that it looked like a corvette. Personally I don't know any year corvette that looks remotely like a 2007 Grand Touring Miata, but there it is.
