What more can be said about the Mazda MX-5? We've written so many pieces about it already. There's the 2014 Mod Rides article about my very own first-gen Miata; the cover story that we shot in Barcelona for the global reveal of the fourth-generation model in 2015; the all-generation feature in 2016 written by Jason dela Cruz; a teaser of the RF variant on our YouTube channel; and my love letter to my beloved roadster published on our website in January.
Obviously, this model is very close to our hearts--especially mine. So, when we came up with the idea to do a multi-car cover with the cars we love for our 150th Issue, I almost had to take a step back.
You see, I'm too much of an MX-5 fanboy already, and I'm not afraid to admit it. Somebody somewhere might hold my admiration for that convertible against me, so I had second thoughts about choosing the current Miata as the 'car I love.' But I quickly put that thought out of my mind. I had to be true to myself. The desire to keep it real surged through me. Hand me the keys to the RF, dammit.
