With ties to Chicago, the MX-5 made its debut at the 1989 Chicago Auto Show, where few attendees (or enthusiasts) could have predicted Miata’s longevity. Since its debut, many competitive models have appeared and disappeared. The Miata has not only survived, but has flourished into iconic status.
Miata continues to enjoy a cult-like following. Back in April 2016, the one-millionth MX-5 Miata rolled off the production line. This past February, Mazda returned to the Chicago Auto Show to unveil the 2019 MX-5 Miata 30th Anniversary Edition. It featured an exclusive Racing Orange paint job along with unique styling cues and performance upgrades. Unfortunately, only 3,000 units will be sold globally, and all 500 reserved for the U.S. have been spoken for.

The One & Only Mazda MX-5 Miata
Heavy pollen and spring rains are in abundance in my area at this time of the year, which makes it difficult, if not downright challenging to evaluate any drop-top model. But the Mazda MX-5 Miata is one vehicle I do not see all that often, therefore when an opportunity to drive one appears, you make it work.
Fortunately, there were enough gaps in the green-yellow haze and precipitation to grab a few hours of unimpeded top-down driving. I’m glad I did as the Miata reminds me why this vehicle remains an enduring favorite ‘ there is no other model quite like it, a budget roadster that recently marked its 30th anniversary.
AutoMatters & More: ‘Dark Arts at Hogwarts Castle’ & 30th Anniversary Miata Photo Shoot
The ongoing story of Harry Potter, his friends and his adversaries is epic. It became infinitely more real when Universal Studios opened ‘The Wizarding World of Harry Potter’ at its theme parks in Hollywood and Orlando. Doing so enabled fans and non-fans alike to experience actually being in and interacting with the fantasy world of Harry Potter.
Now Universal Studios Hollywood has taken that experience to the next level, as it presents ‘Dark Arts at Hogwarts Castle’ ‘ an original story told in a way that is unlike any other you are likely to have experienced before. This story is presented outdoors, in the dark of night, at Hogwarts castle. This truly breathtaking audio/visual experience combines Universal Studio’s colossal Hogwarts Castle with the high caliber of audio and video wizardry that Universal Studios is so very good at executing. A masterful combination of extremely detailed, realistic and animated projections on the castle; dense fog; a multitude of drones that fly in carefully choreographed unison to create an animated image made up of fine points of light; and accompanying narration, music and sound effects tell a compelling, dark story that engages the senses and is unmistakably Harry Potter.
