Why don't you go get a spoon.
x2. In 2001 the domestics quite simply put, did not have a competitor for the Miata which for me makes an ideal commuter to put 25k - 30k miles per year on.

I have not yet driven the now doomed Solstice or Sky models, but from having sat in them, I can state that ergonomically I dislike them for the same reason I dislike the vette, and the now discontinued Honda S2000 - all have extremely high belt lines leaving the top of the door sills at approximately ear level on my 6' frame.

I choose to commute in this type of a car because I honestly can't justify a knee-dragger motorcycle in this climate... of course I'll probably get ragged on if/when I do buy one even though Harley/Victory don't make a true competitor in that class either
