Non-moving 1991 manual with 205,000 miles. Manual mirrors/windows, VLSD, ect.

The car just needed a clutch master and slave to move, so basically $50. It was in pretty bad shape with excessive front/rear driver's/passenger's rocker rust. There's a thread in the meet and greet with a link to pics of the progress. I'm about $3000 into the restoration right now.

I have a friend that will be listing his '91 w/FM turbo, 6 speed, 3.9 Torsen, Koni Yellow adjustable w/ground controls, newer soft top, leather seats, etc for about 6K shortly.

LMK if there is any interest.

Paid $3500 for my 93 with 102K had a Megan Racing mani and DP with DSM turbo. Body was pretty straight with a good top. I almost wish I would have gotten a crap one for $800 considering I've replaced pretty much everything on the car so far

I paid $8000 for my 1990 in 1992. It had 40k miles on it when I got it. It just clicked over the 300k mile mark on the way home from autocrossing it this weekend.

Just paid $1,800 for a '90. 206,000 miles, and while it's rust-free and straight (one dent in a rear fender that's been bondo'd), the crappy aftermarket paint is peeling off. OTOH, mechanically it's in awesome condition. Even the A/C works.

$3900 for a 92 with 64k on it. Bone stock except for a newer soft-top.
I found in on ebay. Ended up being a really fun road trip to get it up here from Florida.

$20.000 (yes, 20 grand) for a '98, back in 2005, had about 50K miles.

It was a steal. The owner was asking 24.500.

Now it's worth about 30K. (I have no plans on selling it)

Going to seattle tomorrow to look at a few and bring a lucky one back home! Now the question is do I stick to an NA for cheaper or drop the extra dough for an NB? Anyone buy an NA and wish they had gone NB? Or vice versa?
