    Hi—I’m looking at a clean 2000 Miata 5 speed. Will I be able to flat tow it, and how?

    Mr. Healyman, Appreciate your comments on the Miata. Just trying to understand why Mazda does not want to recognize that the standard shift Miata would make a good toad. I have a 99 that I'm considering setting up as a toad. Looked at purchasing a Jeep for this purpose but the $700 notes really makes you think twice.

    Question I have is about the tow bar. With the Miata being fairly low, does the tow bar need to be level?

    Hi Healyman, I have towed our 1995 Miata 40k miles, and now want to replace it w/ a 2006-2008 miata, but many people tell me it is "untowable". have you worked with anyone that tows this model that can give me some guidance? Thanks, Neil M.

    Greetings, I saw your note on the Toad forum about Miatas and brake/turn wiring. We have two NA Miatas I'd like to set up for towing. I am new to flat-towing the car, have used trailers in the past. I'm looking at the road master system as it seems user friendly. I wonder if I could get the details on the wiring you used and any other advice you'd care to share. Appreciate your help. Hank Derr in Cheyenne.

    Hi Healeyman. I'm new to this forum. I doing some research and would like to confirm that a Miata could be flat towed by my Class C RV. I noted that you has been involved in many projects. I presume that it could be done. My concern is : Is the manual transmission could be damaged? Some people mention that the gear box won't be properly lubricated while the motor is off, the group gear not spinning. Is is true? What are the procedures to prevent any damages to the transmission ? Many thanks.

    Good to hear from you, it's been a while. We have enjoyed the Miata, we have a second car that we also tow depending on where we are going. That's the reason we made our baseplate. Turned out easy to do and inexpensive, just bought the cheapest Blue Ox I could find. I had a certified welder make the changes, wanted to be sure. We are at Dauphin Island, AL. and leaving for Melbourne Beach, FL.
    Safe Travels, Rich
