Born in Coventry, once the heart of the British motor industry, Brian Long is a professional writer with a passion for vintage and sporting machinery. A trained mechanical engineer and a long-term owner of both the MX-5 and rotary Mazdas, he has had a strong connection with Mazda products for well over a decade. Married to Miho, and with two children (Louis and Sophie-Mercedes), Brian now lives just outside Tokyo, and spends much of his free time with Thoroughbred horses. He has had over 60 books published, including many works on Japanese marques.
A must for MX-5 fans. Auto Express BOOK OF THE WEEK ... reveals the subtle details in the design that pass many would-be owners by Classic Car Weekly this book is the definitive story of MX-5 Mk1 ... typically full of detail and very entertaining. I am a big admirer of Long's works on the Porsche 911 and this one is equally accomplished. tkc (Totalkitcar) well researched and informative. There's much to like Octane (UK)
