The Mazda Miata was first unveiled at the 1989 Chicago Auto Show in February of that year. This week Mazda celebrates the 25th birthday of the Miata and that unveiling. I love my second generation Miata and I'm looking forward to the anticipated 4th generation to be revealed in the next year.
Here's a few cool links about the history of the Miata in conjunction with the 25th anniversary with some short videos.
