My 16v Swap thread
And yeah, its that green color, with the original chrome m-edition wheels as well.
I haven't decided if I'll actually take him up on it and make an offer. I want a fair price. I don't want to insult him by lowballing him, but I'm also not an absolute Miata freak willing to fork over above market pricing for unicorn example. I like NAs a lot, but its not as if I'm obsessed with them.
Also, since I'm not a hardcore Miata nut, I'd probably only end up keeping it a few years (unless of course I'm converted). The appealing thing about this car is that its in such good shape, if I just kept up with the regular maintenance I imagine I could sell it in a few years and not take much of a hit on depreciation.
So $7K is your range? Any others wanna chime in?
i think 6-7k is a very fair price for a sub-60k NA with no rust that is a less than common edition.
If the car has a ratty top, that means you have about 5mos to drive the car and save up the money.
After 1.5 years (50% of that time I was overseas), my track Miata is finished and I will be doing my first lapping event this weekend at Putnam Park in Indiana...hoping to have my TT competition license by the end of the summer.
Here are a few pics of the build starting from a bare frame. I will be adding another set of door bars, a petty bar and a better dash bar over the winter.
And I used every trick in the book for heat management. Wrapped the headers, heat wrapped the coolant lines and airbox, heatshield over the radiator, lots of ducting for the radiator, adjusted the headlight doors to let airflow in the engine bay, and got the biggest, baddest radiator + remote thermostat.
7900, 5k, hard top. I'd have to borrow 2-3k to afford that one though

I've had mine for about three years now. After doing a fair amount of autocrossing with it last year, I decided to actually prep it for E Stock.
It now sports a racing beat cat back, koni yellows, FCM bumpstops, racing beat front swaybar, Kumho V710 R comps on the stock wheels.
The "before" picture:
Playing around in Forza 4 to get the decals how I wanted them:
The end result:
Stock wheels painted to match:
oh, and the chick in the pic... owns the car, and drifts it.
