Flat Tow a Mazda Miata ?

Some time back someone on this forum said that he had converted a number of Mazda Miata's for flat tow. If he is still on the forum or someone else out there can advise me I'd like to know what is involved in making one suitable for flat towing
Thanks Jack

It has to be a manual transmission; then all you need is a tow bar base plate. Even though the Miata is light, I'd also add aux-braking.

What year and what transmission?

I towed a 1991 with a standard transmission for a few years.

Criticism is much easier than craftsmanship.

We have towed a 1992, a 1995 and currently a 2000. Base plate installation is a piece of cake (they replace the front tow hooks). Just leave it in neutral (manuals only, you can't tow an automatic), leave the key in the ignition and stick on some Harbor Freight magnetic LED tow lights. No worse than towing a big touring bike in an enclosed trailer, which we also do. This is a great little toad if you don't need more than 2 seats.
