Exotic Car Queen Reviews Her… Miata? (Here’s Why it’s Great!)

For those who know Aimee Shackelford Petrolgirl, they probably associate her with the world of exotic cars. Not only does she wheel around an Audi R8 V10. She also manages goldRush Rally and is a managing partner of exotic car experiences like Fuel Run and Exotics on Broadway.

For someone who finds themselves around all sorts of high dollar exotics all day, it might be a little bit tougher to get excited about certain cars. For example, we’re not too sure that, for many in that position, that a Mazda Miata would do much for them. It doesn’t exactly take a rocket scientist to plug in the factors to that equation.

However, it seems like Shackelford is rather excited about her Mazda. Going from the cockpit of an R8 to a Miata is certainly quite the transition. However, Shackelford seems to have a pretty good reason for wanting to hop in the machine. As she puts it, learning to be a fast driver in a slow car could be rather beneficial. Being able to feel out the nuances of the Miata could certainly provide a tool in the arsenal that could translate to higher powered cars and dialed in supercars.

By following along with the video below, we get the inside scoop on what this purchase was all about. At the end of the day, we think that every car has some sort of mystique about it, depending on who we ask. For many enthusiasts, this platform has more than enough upside to justify sinking lots of time and money into it. With a car so small and nimble, the fun to drive factor has to be there as well as you rip around corners.
