BwprVv5CUAAA3FuI’ve been waiting for this moment for what seems like a billion years.

I’m absolutely in love with my the official media car of AON Media, the Mazdarati – a 1996 Mazda Miata M-Edition (in Starlight Mica Blue). I have gone scuba diving (though I couldn’t bring my dive buddy in the same load), she’s gone on Canadian dirt rally roads, and safely transported me and my husband everywhere we need to go.

As Mazda Unveils their newest incarnation of the MX-5, I’ll be live-tweeting the event from @AON_Media:

My initial misgivings about Mazda not listening to the enthusiasts who have really stuck with the brand (Cough). The new design really showcases that they not only listened, but they acted on those comments.

We already knew the chassis would be lighter when Mazda revealed that a few weeks back, what we didn’t know is what kind of body would be set ontop.

The new look really shows off the return to simplicity. It doesn’t look bloated like the NC (but I’m also looking through it on my computer screen). It doesn’t seem too tall or too bulky…

I’m really stoked. I can’t wait to see how the new Miata compares to the current Media-Miata, aka the Mazdarati, that AON Media uses for all coverage.

I know mine can handle Canadian wildernesses… Can yours, Mazda? Can the new one?
