If you google the license plate for that awful 350z you find youtube videos of people laughing at it..


The youtube description says:
"The owner of this abomination actually wore a shirt with flames and dyed his hair red to match the car. Needless to say he matched."

It's getting harder to find NAs that aren't completely FUBAR for a reasonable price.
I blame people like this.

What would you consider a "reasonable price" for that car?

Meant to say, it's hard to find cars that aren't completely fubar for a reasonable price.

I don't think I could bring myself to pay money for that car.
I would rather buy a rusted out shell than something that is "hotboi status".

I thought you put that there. but no, it's in the actual ad.

it's like this everywhere btw. browsing the local CL I see 50% of these retarded out cars now
some of them at pretty cheap here though. like you can get an NB2 for 3 grand. NB1 for 2500.

Minor, in front of passenger rear, otherwise solid. Some cosmetic surface rust on control arms. Underside of shell was undercoated, so clean. Just looking for what a ballpark fair price would be.

I would say around $2500, but it really varies a lot by location.
Around here you could probably ask 3500 or more.
Here's a pretty common CA car.
91 Mazda Miata

First ND on ebay?
Mazda MX 5 Miata | eBay
I bought this car for my husband for his 80th Birthday and he loves it but his back doesn't - our plan was to zip around wine country but after 350 miles we have decided to sell to someone who can totally enjoy the car.

The following is the buzz on the car from Car and Driver -

The run of 2016 Launch Edition cars will be the first to arrive in the United States. Each one will be based on the top-spec Grand Touring trim and will come in Soul Red with a tan leather interior, 17-inch wheels, heated seats, automatic climate control, a nine-speaker Bose stereo, navigation, auto high beams, and electronic safety technologies like lane-departure warning, blind-spot monitoring (the Miata has blind spots?), and rear cross-traffic sensors.

Mazda says the Launch Edition color combo will be unique to these 1000 cars for 2016, which we take to indicate that you’ll be able to get one that looks like this sometime down the line. But then, you’d miss out on the Mazda-branded Bose Bluetooth speaker and Mazda apparel being handed out to Launch Edition buyers.

While 1000 cars sounds like a healthy amount, we’re thinking interested parties are going to want to raise a hand early to ensure they get one. After all, it took just 10 minutes for Mazda to sell out the 100 25th Anniversary NC cars it offered via a similar program last year, and there’s also the fact that the ND Miata is pretty great to drive.

We have owned luxury cars and our current ride is a Porsche Macan - things we loved about the Mazda MX-5

* The WOW factor of the car design and amazing road handling. The Soul Red color with the tan leather interior get's lots of looks and thumps up" driving around town.

* The safety features of this car are amazing. The audio signals that warn you that you are out of your lane. The mirror blind spot warning (an icon shows up on the side mirror which tells you that a car is approaching on either the driver or passenger's side of the car.) Back up audio sensor that tells you something is in range of the rear of the car.

* Easy to use Navigation System

* Great BlueTooth capabilies. In the pictures you will see how the center console has been designed for a place for your cell phone to rest in together with two USB ports and a headset port.

* Great Bose Audio - including speakers in the head rests which really bring the sound to your ears when the top is down and we found great to hear directions from the NAV system. See picture of head rests.

* Entry buttons to open and lock the car at the driver and passenger side handles and a concealed button under the trunk area to open the trunk - you need to have the remote in your pocket or purse but it's a great feature.

Please feel free to ask questions.

Only 25?

Isn't the thing 30 or so new? Seems pretty generous to me.

<p>MSRP is $32k. Most dealers are looking for a $2-3k markup.</p><p>It's also a launch edition, which will make people NUT and&nbsp;they're sold out.</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>But then again, it's an automatic, so that's probably not too far off. I'd have expected it to pull closer to $28-30k though.</p>

What is with these tags people put in their craigslist posts? This car is almost none of those things! If somebody is searching craigslist for a RHD turbo drift 325i, they certainly won't be buying a slow lhd miata.

You're giving drifters far too much credit and overestimating their critical thinking skills.
They believe all rear wheel drive vehicles are equal.
Proof:
trade 91 plymouth laser awd turbo
trade 91 plymouth laser awd turbo

Looking to trade for a drift missile. Don't care what the outside or interior looks like just as long as it's not all smashed up. So I'd take a 240, 300zx, miata, supra, rx7, bmw. Basically anything that is rwd a manual. Car has no title because it's main purpose was for track. Tons of upgrades let me know what you have. pics will be up soon.



The good
Stand alone ecu
272 cams
Tial External wastegate
Tial bov
Fresh timing belt pulleys and oil pump
8mm wires and new plugs
Black top injectors and new fuel pump
New battery
Almost zero rust
Boost gage and controller
Front mount intercooler
Bigger radiator
Dual electric fans
New starter
New gm alternator swap
3in gm maf swap
Wideband
Manual fuel pressure regulator
Oil pressure gauge
No tears in the seats
Pwr steering removed and capped
Balancer shaft delete (done properly)

(I'm sure I'm forgetting some small things)

The bad
Needs new hood
The exhaust welded
Has a knock somewhere don't know what but motor still turns and runs
Needs paint.

It has well over 3000 I'm mods and upgrades under the hood. I know what it's worth and with the body and frame being in the condition it's in is a major plus.

02 Subaru WRX FTW

Quote:
02 Subaru WRX FTW - $7300





This sweet 2002 WRX has 102k miles. This isn't your friend's modified 2011+ WRX that took a **** after 30,000 miles. It's a stock WRX. It's just hitting puberty. It can be yours for $7,299.99.

Complete with 35% 3M Color-Stable tints on the side and rear windows, and 90% 3M Crystalline tint on the windshield. Even if the tint doesn't do its job of rejecting heat, you can turn on the ice-cold A/C that can freeze your *** off.

Tires are alright. Alright, meaning near bald, but if you drive in the DMV, as soon as there's a drop of rain you're going to freak out and drive like there's a tsunami coming, anyway. Regardless, Subaru's Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive will keep you safe!

With the exception of a K&N drop-in filter and Perrin turbo inlet, this car is stock. It hasn't been heavily modified and/or trashed by some kid fresh out of high school. This is as real as it gets.

Email to set up a test drive!

I have to agree about the NAs.

All the stance nation ------s get ahold of them. Slam them on ricelands or even worse cheaper shittier coilovers, xxrs or rotas, and then absolutley **** all over the interior and exterior with dumb as **** pointless mods.

I saw one of those stupids sons of bitches covering his god damn door panels in TMNT pajama material. Now the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles were pretty cool when I was a child, but I'm not cover my door cards in tacky as **** cheap *** cotton.

I am also not gonna use 14 foot long shift **** in a car with at maximum a 3" travel on the stock shift ****.

It just makes me sick the swagfags are coming over from 240s and hondas to ruin these amazing cars. They don't know ****, and don't research anything, and ruin perfectly good R packages, SEs and the like.

Hell I saw a 10th AE that had been basically murdered. Everything except the 10th AE blue paint had been changed.

Here is one from my local craigslist. Makes me wanna driver over there to see the car and slap the taste out of the owner's mouth, sadly I don't think the owner has in there to begin with.

Here is another one that is even worse.

Its basically a super clapped out miata with a bunch of cheap ebay bullshit, worth about 1000$ maximum and the ricetard wants 3k for it.

1990 Mazda Miata

Quote:
I have for sale or trade a 1990 Mazda Miata lowered on eBay sleeves,
Runs really well and pulls hard for a stock motor Miata, only upgrades to engine are walbro 255 fuel pump and a fuel pressure regulator because I was in the process of going turbo, I have turbo, piping, inter cooler, and guages just needs oil lines,manifold, and bov. Wheels are 15x8 +14. It's 2 1/2 inch straight pipe with a glass pack. Has R package front and rear lip. Top is in good condition no leaks. No AC or ps, great heat though. Driver side manual window cable broke so it's currently rigged to a string to you can pull the window up and down which works great with no problems for me, driver seat is worn as normal. Any other questions just ask

Looking to sale or trade for a truck or suv preferably 4x4, manual is a plus will entertain other offers as well (I don't want your lawnmower or non running junk though either so keep it realistic)
