2006 Mazda Miata / MX5

New Miata will be longer, roomier

by Brenda Priddy & Company

The next Miata, codenamed J04, is expected to arrive early in 2005, but will likely be sold as an early 2006 model year entry. The Miata will be riding on a longer wheelbase, and will measure in a bit longer as well. Slightly roomier inside -- occupants will find a bit more headroom, legroom and even more cargo area in the trunk.
Sources tell us the standard engine will be a 1.8-liter VVT four, with a possible rotary engine offered as an option. Enthusiasts are hoping for a lightweight V6 option, but there is no indication that will become a reality.
The new Miata is expected to be offered with ESP (Electronic Stability Program), as well as bigger brakes and 4 airbags.

My first car was a 67 Mustang Coupe, 2nd one was a 67 Cougar XR-7, 3rd one was a 66 Mustang Coupe. Why did I get rid of these cars for ? I know why, because I'm stupid, stupid, stupid.

My next Ford.....
