The Story

After the accident in my roadtrip wagon, I needed a new daily and I asked myself what could replace it? With much consideration, I decided on one model that I had repeatedly thought about over the years. As the saying goes, Miata is always the answer.

With this decision, I joined the Maryland Miata Club, sat in many cars, test drove a few, and finally placed my order in February: a red soft top with the special Recaro seats and BBS wheels. Then I waited, and waited, and waited some more. I went to more events and drove more Miata's in the meantime. I knew what I wanted, I just had to be patient. Finally, I got the call I was hoping for. The dealership called in June, but unfortunately told me they were unable to get what I had ordered due to part shortages and delays.

After all this time I wasn't going to take no for an answer. That same day a customer had backed out of their Miata order in Ohio, leaving the perfect car available for me. I jumped at the opportunity and a few days later took a flight into Dayton to pick up my new 2024 Mazda Miata. 500 miles later it's home and it was absolutely worth the 4 months it took to finally buy the right one.
