What was “the answer” before the Miata existed? Try the MGB. Like the Miata, it’s a lightweight, two-seat roadster that didn’t break the bank.

How do the two compare? We drove both back-to-back to find out. Presented by CRC Industries.

Good vid.

We have a lot of retirees where I live and the Miata ownership really does span generations. I love to see the drift kids out a ratty NA and then a few days later spot a guy in his 70's/80's (original owner?) in a pristine example headed out to brunch.

HAVING OWNED BOTH, I COULD NOT AGREE MORE....

 However, if you just 'tweak' the MGB a bit......

British tech in the 60s and 70s, 3 MGBs and a MGB GT as daily drivers. An NA for 10 years and a NB for the last 8 years. They are both great at what they were designed to do and very comparable.

Good comparison and review between the Miata and MG.  While in college, my car was a Datsun 510. After college, 1988, my first car was a Honda CRX-Si, a Triumph TR-6, then an e30 325is and got all the 3-series generations until 2015.  Recently, bought an NC-Miata and made some bolt-on mods.  Every time I drive it, I smile!  It's simple, reliable, cheap, easy to modify and fun to drive.
