Mazda MX-5 Mk2 (1998-2005)

When it comes to the MX-5, it's a case of original is best. In fact, visit a classic show and you could be forgiven for thinking that the Mazda MX-5 production stopped in about 1998.

And you know? We get it. The Mk2 was a bit softer, had better brakes, and was heavier. Perhaps it's biggest sin was getting rid of the pop-up headlamps (blame safety legislation for that). But the Mk2 version of this Japanese roadster is still a fine car, and trounces all the contemporarly competition.

It's also dirt cheap so if you really must have pop-up headlights feel free to pay over the odds. If you want to stand out from the crowd, then the Mk2 is you.

I would think the Fiesta ST in all forms deserves to be on the list give the past collectible performance of previous fast Fords.

Won't be many in mint condition in years to come

Personally I drive an Old Mercedes 220 Avantgarde Estate. 2003 and it still is going well.
Tes Mercedes are expensive to service. But in my case apart from a Broken Front Spring and a couple of electrical problems. It fine I get wonderful MPG and it's not because I drive slowly. Going down through France into Spain and halfway across Spain it returns well over 55 MPG. This cannot be bad for a 16 year old car, Comfortable Yes. Economical Yes. Attractive Yes,.
In other word it rings my Bell.
This after driving so many different makes over 60 years!
Am I happy with it YES.
Would I like Newer one YES YES,
Just cant afford one.
