I'm in love  
I've fallen in love with my Miata. I didn't think that any car could capture my heart after Jezebel's many years of faithful service, but this zippy little turquoise Miata has done so in record time. She pretty much named herself Shakti right away. I don't usually go for Sanskrit names but that's just the most appropriate name for her.

Jezebel is going on to help my daughter do her paper route, and since my daughter has grown up with Jezebel in her life since she was 12, she's already planning to fix her up and has new seat covers all ready for her. She even wants to paint her. I'll have to take a picture before I let her go tomorrow, and take a farewell drive over to the car wash.

I can't wait to drive somewhere tomorrow. Shakti is calling.

Miata Love
This is so funny. I just watched a documentary are cars the other night and the Miata came up. It's been designated a "women's car" because of it's specs and for the simple reason that women literally fall in love with it. There were guests on talking about their cars and of course some men eye rolling (Chad McQueen). And now I happen across this post. Kind of makes me want to take one for a test drive. :)

Re: Miata Love
Oh yes, drive one--especially around some curves. Miatas are perfectly weighted and have rear wheel drive, and they take curves with such ease you'll never mind driving around them again. :)

At the Miata event I went to there were plenty of men who had Miatas too, and they've redesigned the newest version to appeal to them even more. Some men got hooked when their wives got one. (I think my husband is falling in love with mine too.)

It is very woman-friendly, though, and I think its curves suit ours to a T.
