Greetings from NC

Hello all!
I just bought my first manual car (a 99 Miata, Brilliant Black) on Feb 6, I am pretty new to driving stick, but I have got it down for the most part. Before this I was driving a 2007 Accord, which was nice, but I wanted something that was more fun to drive. Still haven't got tags yet, I'm in the middle of polishing the valve cover.
Here is my car:

Welcome, welcome! One of these days I'll go for a 2 seater since I'm childless and plan to stay that way.

Welcome! Nice car. I remember I drove a fellow a forum member's Miata once. I'm way too tall for one...and for many cars. But these a great cars.

Slightly belated welcome! I have a friend who bought a very similar vehicle when he moved down to Florida for work. His leaks oil, but other than that, pretty sturdy little car - considering it's closing on 20 years old, that's not bad at all.
