History’s 10 Most Hideous Mazda Miatas

Pushing the boundaries of DIY design (and good taste).

The MX-5 Miata is an icon, beloved by millions. There are endless owner’s clubs and online forums, a single-make racing series, even, all revolving around Mazda’s plucky little roadster. As the best-selling convertible sports car in history, it’s not surprising that more than a few of these Japanese gems have undergone serious DIY surgery. Unfortunately, we aren’t all born with an eye for design. Some Miatas have fallen a bit short in the quest for excellence.

Big Blue - Every Miata goes through a time in its life trying to find its “inner self.”

Miatapooling - I am all about that Miata life, and so are my three friends!

Miataman - He's the hero Texas deserves. But not the one it needs right now. (Or ever).

The Bastard Child - Two beautiful parents, one ungodly child.

The Golden Nugget - Look out, Mayweather, there’s a new sheriff in town.

Dumpster Baby - What the? I don’t even...

Mr. Practical - How will you get out of helping your friends move now?

The Oil Slick - Someone couldn’t decide between Spy Hunter and coal-roller.

Jeep Killer - Needs less doors.

The Dark Knight - Please, please, say the eyes light up.

C’mon, guys, we’re just playing.
We love you all.
