The Miata’s always been such an easy sell to car enthusiasts. Even if you’re not wild about the styling it’s hard to argue with the rest of the car’s pros: inexpensive, reliable, fun. Now that the 2016 Mazda Miata configurator has gone live, we can build our own! We’ll show you ours if you show us yours.

Spec your own Miata right here.

My dream roadster keeps it simple. Base model, manual shift, white exterior and no options beyond rubber floor mats and a cargo net because... apparently I’m an old man. Who puts carpet in a car anyway? That never made sense to me. But at least my brand-new MX-5 only costs $26,000!

It’s actually pretty disappointing that you have to step all the way up to the $30,000 Grand Touring spec to get a blue paint job... and there’s not even an option for green, which would have been my pick for sure. Although now that I’m looking again, the GT’s blind spot indicators would be pretty nice...

Enough about my Miata. Let’s talk about your Miata. Er, MX-5. Whatever. Share below!
