I would say the Miata was around a 2001. I realize they are not the quickest car out there but since my car is an automatic I figured I would get beat. It must be a real kick in that kids ass getting beat by an old guy like me with an automatic tranny "economy car" against his "sports car". Before everyone rags on my for driving an automatic, I will let people know that I am in a wheelchair and can't drive a standard anymore. I drive with full hand controls and don't even use the pedals.

Those automatics are tricky. Can you post a pic of the hand controls? Was it a Ford option?

It was a newer one with the 1.8. My hand controls are not a factory Ford option but Ford reinbursed me the $500.00 to have them installed. Ford will reinburse up to $1000.00 for any adaptive equitment a disabled driver needs to operate any Ford vehicle. Unfortunatly, I do not have any pictures of the install but they are pretty compact and require very little modifications to the car.

I grew up not knowing anything about cars. So I'm more like, hey, if the car does what it's meant to do well... kudo's. if it does more then it's meant to do (focus PZEV), Butterfinger.
