A real tonic to modern tin boxes

Had this car for a few months and a few thousand miles, it had done 27000 miles in seven years ! Last owner averaged 800 miles a year in last four years. Full Mazda service history. Drives really well .But I did get a full wheel alignment done as all Mx5 seemingly benefit from this.And the wheel alignment was out and you could tell once it had been done Other than that no faults. It as the two litre engine and bilstean suspension. Very light body so goes well. What I like is it’s got all the safety kit ,like front and side airbags abs,traction control etc. I was witness to a double fatality of two young lads in a classic MG Midget .The people in the modernish car they hit walked away. So I am very aware of how dangerous old cars are in an accident .I would not buy a fun car that hadn’t got the right safety kit. Depreciation is minimal as well. So a good car either as a daily driver or weekend runabout.
