It can be done! I know it can! When I bought my used Miata NB it had snow tires on it! I felt like an idiot for driving on them for about 6 months before taking it to a tire shop to have them point it out. Was just in for a flat fix and ended up getting all 4 tires. But it was really funny because for the longest time… Read more
Here in a more temperate clime (northern Virginia), I usually can put the top down all year, if it is not actually raining or snowing. When it gets hot, I put on sunscreen and turn up the AC. I am not hardy enough to live in Wisconsin, think about how often snowblowers have been mentioned in Peter Eagan’s columns. Read more
Not yet time here in Florida. But come November, you’ll find me wondering aimlessly around muttering “I miss my Jag. Oooooh, I miss my Jag”.
My convertible of choice would have to be a red Z4 M Roadster.
The prices are dropping.. Picked up a ‘14 stang Sunday. Would have preferred a miata, but have a family of 4. It’s one of the compromises that must be made, but hey, convertible on sale.

I could not agree more. 100%, totally and completely. My toys DO hibernate when the leaves change, but I don’t put them away until temps are in the 40’s and the summer tires become unsafe to drive on. Like Egan, I despise being baked to death in my car, so I tend to drive with the top on when it’s 90 deg and 80%…
Yes. Yes you do. Buy mine and be like Bond! 1997 Z3
Miata is here, in garage, awaiting a new rear differential....within 2 weeks I will be awaiting the leaves dropping, the crisp air, and cruising the backroads...
