We've seen all manner of ways to propose marriage, from the usual candlelit dinner to the Jumbotron at the big game. A friend of ours recently proposed with his a barbershop quartet singing backup. But this has to be a new one – and one that automotive enthusiasts would probably find even more touching than a sky-writing biplane.

A member of the Miata.net forum recently asked other MX-5 enthusiasts to help him pop the big question to his bride-to-be. He got 31 Miatas together and needed just four more, but after appealing to his fellow roadster fans, over 40 turned up in the parking lot at the local high school.

The groom-to-be runs an aerial photography business and used an unmanned drone which his girlfriend thought would be shooting some local real estate properties when it flew over the parking lot and captured the image you see above with 44 little roadsters spelling out "Marry Me?" The answer, in case you were wondering, was a resounding "Yes!" How could she not, after all, when those Mazda convertibles are just so darn adorable? Now they'll just need to figure out what they'll be driving to the chapel on the big day.

      OMG... How the heck did this get on Autoblog? I was involved in it. My Miata is the top left Silver car on the Bottom "M" (spelling ME)... It was very sweet, and they are such a sweet couple. It was good times, as usual the miata club guys had food, drinks and a run group that ended up at a BBQ joint in Orange, CA. Still loads of fun! :)

        Major props to you for chipping in to help a fellow Miata lover accomplish his dream proposal to his dream girl.

      Isn't commercial usage of unmanned aircraft in the public airspace illegal?
        Neez

        No, in 2012 or 2013(i can't remember), the FAA created new guidelines for small unmanned drones, dependent on size, weight, whether they used fuel or battery etc... Most likely this is a very small drone which uses batteries, which has very laxed rules.

        Why yes, with a proposal like that, I'd imagine it would be a very long and Happy marriage. Why, were you implying something else?

      they should require marriage or relationship classes prior to any marriage...or parents could just do a better job at raising their own kids. Either way I just know I was not prepared for marriage (I thought I was)...This guy seems like a better planer than me though so I hope he has a good marriage. Sorry about the Debbie downer post!

      And before they embark on their honeymoon, he should show her another aerial with "WANT KIDS?" spelled out in minivans!
