Just bought an 05 Mazdaspeed Miata. I think this picture might fit in with this thread.

If I was to get a Miata that is exactly how I would want it.

Yes, it definitely fits! 

How does it handle on the street?

Yep...  and a snorkel on an open car that probably doesn't have waterproofed electronics.   Kind of reminds me of a 5" exhaust tip on a 1.5" system.

I have towed and launched a boat

 

 

And used it to anchor a larger boat during hurricane Irma

This thread absolutely rules. 

Once my wife's "stupidity tolerance" normalizes after my most recent inane purchase, I'm absolutely building a sport utility answer.

I believe the primary purpose of a snorkel is to raise the intake up so that it sucks in less dust, particularly when traveling on dusty roads behind other cars. Water fording is a secondary use.

Kicked around the idea of adding a snorkel to my Miata for no particular reason. Probably won't happen.

In the Miata, yet I got nothing, except maybe this:

 

Now when the "stuff you've crammed into your Yaris" or "furniture you've moved with your Civic hatch" threads start, I'll be more on point.

Not particularly extreme, but this was my autocross setup for a year or two. Jack, tools, and 3 tires wedged in the trunk. Tire 4 on the passenger seat. Cooler on the passenger floor. Helmet perched on the center console.

 

Have done that with all 4 wheels with my NB. Tied off to the hinge bases with a small ratchet strap. Light weight roller jack, tools and a folding chair fit under the tires. Cooler in passenger floor board.

Have also brought home a 10-foot extension pole from the local hardware store once. Laid alongside and tied off to the passenger mirror, passenger seat and passenger side of the top bars. Pole was almost as long as the car. A passer-by called it Miata jousting. Didn't get a pic.

Sadly nothing exciting.  I came to Miatai late in life and have never had it as my sole car so big loads get hauled by big vehicles.

Except that one time I bought 15 10' pieces of 3/4" conduit.  stuck it down in the footwell and up onto the rollbar.  Infinite headroom means that isn't a problem...until the sky opened up on me less than a mile from home.  Hunkered down under an overpass for an hour with a pair of bikers until it passed.

One more. Arrived home after picking up CSmith at the airport - he had more luggage than expected. We got some "interesting" looks leaving the parking deck. 

Roughly a 90 minute drive home from there...

This thread makes me want a Miata to put stuff in. 
I have a Boxster but I don't carry stuff and no one has a thread about that anyway.
