#30yearsofmiata Story 3/30: @mazdaspeedmiata Brandon Matthews has always been drawn to cars. Over the years, he’s owned various types, but it all changed when his friend let him drive his MX-5 Miata. “After getting to drive it for a while,” Matthews explained, “I fell in love with the MX-5 and had to get my own.” Matthews' Mazdaspeed MX-5 Miata has taught him most of what he know about cars, from maintaining, to upgrading, to tuning, and most importantly, how to love them. “I love my MX-5. I always enjoy road tripping in my MX-5,” Matthews added. “Even though it’s a smaller car--and I’m a tall guy--I find the term "cozy" describes the car much better than "small.”
