1990 Mazda Miata model (LadyBug)

Last updated Sep 24, 2010  

Photo of a 1990 Mazda Miata model (LadyBug)


Back in the early 1990's, I really liked Miatas. I've never driven one, but I wanted one (Still do!). Anyhow, I was dating this guy (Now my husband, Corvair Jim) who built model cars as a hobby and he decided to surprise me with a model of a Miata just the way I wanted it, with all the optional I wanted and of course in the right colors. You see a lot of red ones, but not too many with a tan interior. At first I wanted it to have a tan top to match the interior, but one day I saw a car with a filthy tan convertible top and that ended the tn top idea. Jim had already painted the top tan, but he repainted it black for me!

(The license plate in the picture of the model is from Jim's collection of license plates. Our last initial is an "E", so that's me: "MRS JE"!

Factory Options

Tan interior, black convertible top, automatic transmission


Jim added all sorts of little details here and there, mostly in the interior and under the hood.
