Which is the best Mazda MX-5 model?

I'm thinking of buying an early MX-5. I remember you recommending a particular year as being the being the best bet, which was it? I like to work on my own vehicles and I think that you mentioned that they were ok to self-maintain.
Not me. Pre-cat converter 1.6s are the most prized, which means G to J reg. But, since they were only ever built to last seven years, they can rust badly.
