"I LOVE MY CAR BECAUSE ... when Miatas first came out in the '80s, I always wanted one. I never had my own car before; we always had one for the family. So two years ago when I was ready to buy my first car, it had to be a Miata, stick shift. Co-workers teased me, saying I was going through a midlife crisis. However, my teenage daughter agreed that it was because I had always wanted one, not because I suddenly needed one. I don't know why I waited so long."
