MazIat? FiaZda? Doesn't exactly roll off the tongue like it did with the Toybaru did but either way you spell it, the Mazda built Italian roadster sounds like the long planned tie ...

A Snowy Ad for a Miata Roll Bar

A Snowy Ad for a Miata Roll Bar

I try to stay away from selling on our blog. It’s not what it’s for but when I see things like this I can’t help myself. One of the things that make the Miata great is also the thi ...

Mazda at the 2014 New York International Auto Show

Today at the 2014 New York International Auto Show, Mazda rolled out an impressive booth featuring a special 25th Anniversary Edition MX-5 Miata AND the chassis for the fourth generation car - something Miataphiles have been (im)patiently waiting to see in full skin. The chassis of the ND fourth generation shows a peek at a Miata-standard rear-wheel-drive and front engine design, but the engine is set behin ...

Throwback Thursday Door Sills WINNER!

Our last Throwback Thursday prize was to win a set of new-old-stock door sills, and I'm pleased to announce our winner, Bob L! He's a Southern California local who has visited Moss in Goleta recently, and he's really done a thorough job of cleaning up his '92 Miata. Here's Bob's story in his own words: I bought my 1992 Crystal White NA from my friend 2 years ago for $500.00. Brenda enjoyed her Miata for 20 ...

Throwback Thursday & New Writer Contest!

How better to celebrate our first Throwback Thursday theme post than with a Contest?  After cleaning up a back closet in our Advertising Dept I came across a stack of old Moss Miata catalogs - of course back in 1999 we were known as miatamania.com but that's so 15 years ago... Most of the parts inside are timeless but ALL of the outfits and hairstyles are not. Interesting timing as we had just received a bo ...

MazIat? FiaZda? The Mazda built Italian roadster

MazIat? FiaZda? Doesn't exactly roll off the tongue like it did with the Toybaru did but either way you spell it, the Mazda built Italian roadster sounds like the long planned tie up between Mazda and Alfa Romeo might end up being a tie up between Mazda and Fiat. It all boils down to Fiat/Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne saying he doesn't want any Alfa’s built outside of Italy. That’s a problem since the deal ...

Celebrating 20 Years – History 101: How Moss Became a Miata Specialist

Originally published here 6/2013. Republishing as part of our celebration of 20 Years in Miata. In 1948, a kid named Al Moss bought himself a shiny new MG TC. After attending a few car club events, he decided to open an MG tuning business. Though there were only a handful of MGs in the country, there were enough cars in the LA area to keep Al afloat. In March of 1949, my grandparents went to the fledgling M ...

A Snowy Ad for a Miata Roll Bar

I try to stay away from selling on our blog. It’s not what it’s for but when I see things like this I can’t help myself. One of the things that make the Miata great is also the thing that, in some people’s eyes, makes it dangerous, it doesn’t have a roof or a roll bar. Roll over protection, the Miata doesn’t have it. A Miata roll bar might be something for you to consider. That’s what a few guys on Opposite ...

Rear Strut Tower Brace by Cobalt

What’s the first thing you did when the mod bug hit? Was it a cold air intake, a cat back exhaust, or could it have been a strut tower brace? These are the things that are usually on the “stage one” check list. They are easy to install and give you a nice feeling of accomplishment and register well on the butt dyno. What we have here is a little twist to that stage one script. This, brought to us by Cobalt ...

High Mileage? How about record-setting high mileage? Meet the Million Mile Miata

A couple of weekends ago I encouraged local Miata owners online to meet at the Santa Barbara Cars & Coffee, which on the last weekend of each month is held in the Upper Village and usually draws the "WOW" crowd of cars. Of course the 7 Miatas off to the side didn't draw much, if any, interest from the rest of the show goers. The Ferrari FF was much more interesting. But our small group was more than thr ...
