Most often, we tow a new Miata Retractable Hardtop.
This is the man who traded countless emails with me to show me the way to tow a Miata four down. He is THE MAN!
If you have a Miata manual tranny, and want to tow it four down, have no fear. Can't answer why Mazda says no, but there is too much anecdotal evidence, from too many different sources to deny the fact it's easily doable. Can get a baseplate for $100 too. Self install is the easiest I've ever seen. Did it myself in two hours. First time ever doing it, and I'm handicapped. So there you go.
Thanks again Tim. BTW, your Healey looks gorgeous.
