      I'm coming out as a Miata owner. I joined the cult on Saturday...after I said I would never own one.

      I STAND CORRECTED

      What a raw car. I was convinced I needed a Boxster to have a more "pure" motoring experience. I'm wrong. Terribly wrong. I'm sorry Miata Gods.

      I traded for a '90 in Classic Red, manual, 130K, newer top, COLD AC, stack of service records from the last several years totaling over $20K. Yes, I said over $20K. This car was ridiculously maintained by a fanatical owner. New Koni's installed a month ago. The bad: Hail damage on hood and trunk from a recent storm in our region. Bumper needs a buff, and one headlight door. He traded after a body shop quoted him $7700 to fix the hood/trunk and to repaint the car...

      He traded it for a '99 Miata I had at my dealership.

      I paid $500.00...and yes, I'm keeping this one!

      It may half of auction prices, but retail value for a car in that mechanical condition would be about $3500-4000 here.

      Nice score for sure.

      Looks like a solid base to start with Even the tip of the nose is not crushed in First and foremost, get all the bracing that's found on the 1.8 models.

      How's the condition of the top? There's a ton of aftermarket tops available. You can even get a expensive lookin' cloth top. But whatever material you choose, pick a no-zip ,glass window version.

      My '99 Miata was still the most fun car I have ever owned, even though it was one of the slowest in a straight line.

      Yeah, don't listen to a word this guy says, unless you want the bottom of the glass to completely separate from the top due to stress if you actually use it.

      Make sure you get a zip top.

      Nose crush? Bracing?
      What is all that mean?
      I'm totally new to Miata's.

      The top is in great shape and was replaced a few years ago. Why pick the no zip version?

      I think I'm gonna keep this one for awhile. I always wanted one of these, but didn't spend the money. I was demoing a NB and hated it...like the NA much better. If you're in the Miata market, send me a PM and I'll find you one for cheap money.

      actually using the top - ie taking it up and down - completely ruins the back plastic window after a while and you end up not being able to see out the back of the car.
      i know some miata folks run cut pool noodles that they stuff into the plastic rear window as its being folded down to prevent it rubbing on itself.

      pretty lame really... i could definitely see the advantage to a glass rear window, though ive never used a miata with one, only the plastic ones

      miata.net and turbomiata.net were the two forums i remember from my brief foray into these cars...

      one of them is mostly tech geeks with actual wrench turning knowledge and the other one was just stance dorks who know what wheels fit when they were lowered to scraping height. but both should have good maintenance info.

      I have a no zip glass window, replaced a zip plastic one. My glass window is really small. At 6'1", it is pretty much useless going down the road. And I really miss the zip the window down, and cruise with the top up. I would try to get a zip glass window top, if you are gonna do a new top.

      My dirty miata.

      i know some miata folks run cut pool noodles that they stuff into the plastic rear window as its being folded down to prevent it rubbing on itself.

      pretty lame really... i could definitely see the advantage to a glass rear window, though ive never used a miata with one, only the plastic ones
      ...Have you used a Miata with the zip-open plastic one? Putting that down before the top keeps it clear. There's even an available felt-lined pouch to protect it from rubbing on the carpet.

      KY, FL, whatever. (I got my TCL used car dealers mixed up)

      You're officially stupid too, to stereotype and attach the Miata to gay people.

      I have a zipper/glass rear window. Love it. My parts car has a no-zip glass window and I really don't get the point.
      Looking for a ratty Miata? My '90 is for sale.

      Stereotypes are so fun. Especially when combined with irony.
      Expose your cracks and love will fill them.
