|ocoeeredline||I traded my mx-5 for my 07 sky redline and while the mx-5 to me handled better the sky looks much better and I feel like a man in a mans car vs a man in a chic car .|

A Base MX5 is $28,000

Anyway to solve the problem with the trunk, My wife and I went on a Sunday drive the other day up in the mountains and stopped by a camping ground near a lake, and we talked about how fun it would be if we had a trailer to pull behind our Sky, so when we got home I started looking on the forums and found out that there is a company who make a trailer for the Sky that looks just like it in the rear, even with the Sky lights. Anyone interested can pm me and I will give you the details. I will order ours tomarrow, because we plan on taking a lot of trips to see some of you fine folks around the county! And we love camping out! This will allow us to do both!

oh and before you even ask why i'm on this forum, i want to know what you, yes all of you the drivers, would change, what you don't like about the sky.
so i can make a list, see what's important to me, and check it twice.
did it with my 350z, everyday that car put a smile on my face.

i can also get a miata for a base of something like, 19,000 or some crap like that. then slap a body kit on it and hey it looks pretty nice.
and for 19,000 clams you can't really even compete with the sky.
and again man, the trunk space, i drove one a few days ago, i loved the drive, it drove as well as my 350z, and did exactly what i wanted it to do. so again, no complaints, but i put the top down and said "dood, wheres my trunk?"
i love the way the ride looks, handles and feels.
the only few reasons i haven't bought one yet are, that stupid trunk crap, and the cockpit just didn't seem all that comfy.
i'm going to hold out, see if i can rent one, drive it for about a week, and really see if all that matters.

the Sky has it beat in body styling, the 2.4 Sky has more power than the 2.0 miata and even by japanese standards the sky handles better than the miata. Trunk space is about the same. internally the miata is much smaller than the Sky because the miata is narrower. Which I guess is okay if you want to leanover and give your homeboy a kiss on the cheek
Most of the new mustangs out there are pretty much balless. Just like most of the early 65 mustangs
I just don't want to own any thing that is being turned out in a million copys a year.

|baalzhebub||oh and the reason why the miata is so popular is because it does all the little things right, and a mustang, ha please. if i wanted a pony car i'd go buy a evo for around the same amount as a gt mustang, and feel much better about myself.|

like i said in another post, i've been looking around for a new daily driver, that suits my needs.
has to have some style.
has to be fun to drive anywhere.
and has to have plenty of nifty stuff i can add on to it.
i don't mind the sky haviong a crappy top, the only thing i have problems with is the stupid trunk, i refuse to buy a 94' blazer to go to the grocery store.
but other than that, each time i have driven the sky, it's been fun.

|irishsky5||Someone was asking on another thread last week whether we thought the Sky was more for women. After having pulled up alongside a Miata, there is no doubt which looks like the girlie car. Reviewers like a lot of first time viewers are having a difficult time believing Saturn can make such an attractive and fun to drive Sports car. Mazda has its well deserved Zoom Zoom image which carries over to the Miata. The Sky kinda broke the mold for what most Amercians expect from GM's Saturn division. Imagine the difference in reception if it had been introduced by GM as Corvette's little brother or Cadillac' entry into the affordable sports car market.|

They will never complain about the sky top again

This is just part of what car reviewers do. When they compare two cars, they tend to focus on what is different. The top operation between the two is different, and if operated back to back, very glaring. On the miata side, you unlatch it, toss it over your shoulder, and your done. Reverse is about the same. With the Sky, you unlatch the buttresses and header, open trunk, drop in, close trunk, and putting it up requires you to walk around the car to latch down the buttresses (gasp!).
Granted, the Sky top is nothing that any reasonable person couldn't live with and not give a second thought to when buying the car. To a reviewer, however, who is paid to point out differences (nitpick differences) between two roadsters, it just stands out... so it gets mentioned.
Anyone who makes the top on the Sky the make-it or break-it feature of the car, really didn't want the Sky anyway.
