I'm not one to judge a person's masculinity by his mode of transportation, but it is my understanding that the person this poll is directed toward rides a Harley and occasionally pulls a livestock trailer behind a big-assed pickup truck.

How many men in Texas can actually fit into the driver's seat of a Miata?

It definitely seems designed for people who are the same size as the average Japanese.

And it's definitely NOT a car that makes the "I suffer from penis envy" statement loud and clear.

Other than that and its name, which sounds like something a Siamese cat would drive, what makes a Miata any more effeminate than one of those little BMW sports cars?

Miatas are small but so are Mini Coopers. BFD

Would it be more manly to drive a Miata if you left the gas cap open in an attempt to mimic the mileage of a Hummer?

The only pimp I ever met drove a gold Cadillac El Dorado, and it was so new it still had the plastic on the seats.

This was my first year out of Baylor, when I was working in Waco. I had found a great apartment in a bad neighborhood, but I didn't know how bad it was until I left my lights on overnight.

The next morning, my Mazda station wagon wouldn't start. I was cursing under my breath and getting out of my car to call my future husband for help when this apparition appeared in my window -- a tall, extremely skinny black man who was wearing satiny pants, a Quiana shirt (this was 1979) and, despite the fact that it was 85 degrees, a stocking cap pulled down over his ears. He had at least one gold ring on every finger, including his thumbs. He had pulled his brand new El Dorado up to the hood of my Mazda, and was holding jumper cables, which he hooked up. Then, he hollared, "See whuh she say now!" It took me a few seconds to realize that this meant I was supposed to try to start my car. Of course, it started, and then he said, "If yew nee' anuh moah help, Ah lives right cross duh street!" Even a pimp can be a good neighbor.

Drive what makes you happy. If that's a Miata, you've probably got bigger balls than some of the dudes with so-called "manly" cars who are worried about driving a chickmobile. Overall, it's a pretty girly car. Wouldn't be my choice if I went for a convertible, but if you like it...drive it.

As for yellow anything...ew. I give Baylor folks a pass on this, but if you're not trying to mimic the Gold Rush thing, you have NO excuse. Why ruin a good Corvette?!

But again...if you like yellow...

My husband is 6'5" and weighs about 260. The last time we came to Texas, I got an upgrade through my employer and rented a big fat Lincoln. He absolutely loved it, and I realized we had become our parents. Still, all that room made him so happy I may encourage him to get a big fat old Ford if we wants when our kids graduate from college.

I typically have this image in my head of the Miata as a nice entry-level SCCA racer, so seeing a man driving one doesn't seem strange at all to me.

Seeing a man drive a Volkswagen New Beetle, on the other hand...

One of my guy friends actually drove a Miata for a while...but then again, we always joked around that he was kind of a metro. Still, it was a lot of car for the $$$. You get a pass when you're in college on stuff like that, IMHO. deltbear's accounting teacher kinda raises an eyebrow, but, hey, whatever. Ain't my car.

That dude's Miata was actually a fun little car, but again, the looks just don't do anything for me. Too roundy. If I wanted roundy, I'd get a gottdanged Bug.

I am on my 2nd Miata, both red. I will probably be getting another one soon. I drive a ford F-150, Dynaglide, Miata, 2 quarter horses and a haflinger.

When I was in high school I bought a Triumph Spitfire in 4 boxes. Put it together and drove it for 2 years. Once my kids grew up I went and got the closest thing I could find.

Unlike our little monkey fluffer poster I am very secure in my manhood and dont try to buy expensive pens, cameras, jewelry or cars to make up for my inadequate equipment.

Funny thing, the guy that had the Triumph I WANTED to buy (thanks dad...) lived right off the Baylor campus. He was an old guy, he had tweaked the car a bit, in his words "she's got a lot of moxie!". I went to Reicher and two of my classmates had sports cars, one had a 240Z and the other an MGB. Do you baby the miata or drive it hard occasionally? The little drive thru Cameron Park from Herring to Park Lake can be quite invigorating.

I drove the first miata pretty hard the first couple of months. I spent a lot of time taking the two lane back roads trying to double the speed limit around corners. Wore out the first set of tires at 20,000 miles. After that I slowed down and drove more conservatively.

The car is fun to drive and reminded me a lot of the Spitfire I drove in high school. At the time I was single and tired of dates asking to bring a kid along. The lack of a back seat solved that problem. Miata makes a durable car. I drove the first two I had well over 100,000 miles.

I tried to buy a blue convertible Triumph Spitfire from a friend who lived in an apartment across the street from mine in college. Paul was asking $600, but he wouldn't sell it to me. He told me it was so temperamental that it needed to go to someone who had the time and skills to work on it all the time - and indeed, he did seem to spend an inordinate amount of time fiddling with it. Was yours that temperamental?

Paul was doing you a favor. Spitfires were hard to keep running. The Lucas electronics are screwed and the verticle carb required constant adjustment. The three U joints in the rear had to be tightened once a week or they wuld break the bolts leaving you stranded. I sold mine to my brother and he didnt check the oil and blew the engine. He parted it out for more than I sold it to him so I didnt feel bad.

Only if he is married.

Marriage allows any man the privilege of doing anything remotely homosexual.

Think about it: how many married men have made beds with dust ruffles and seven pillows? Now, compare that with single guys.

How many married men can be caught at a shopping mall during football season? Now, compare that with single guys.

See how that works?
