I'm kind of to the point now where the car isn't worth much to me, the only thing I really care to keep are the shocks and the front brakes.

You can rebuild it. You have the technology. You can make it better than it was. Better...stronger...faster.

Part the green car or sell it as "non-running, blown engine"?

Unfortunately, there are almost no mega-baller Miata owners that would be willing to pay what the Green Glory Hole is worth. Those that would be able and willing, probably wouldn't buy it "non-running, blown engine."

That leaves you with a part-out unless you find one of the three people in the USA that would buy the car in that condition at a price you would accept.

I'm thinking ~$3000. That gets me out of debt to John and gets the car out of my garage.

Does that include suspension and brakes and hardtop? If so I will take it.

Those are the only things in the car worth anything.

Is it just me, or does the vehicle actually look like a cartoon caricature in this image?

It looks like a car who's owner has no life other than trying to spend money to gain e-attention. I guess it's good, cause otherwise he might realize how pointless his life is and end it all.

i think somebody needs to buy that and make it a serious 400+ hp car. could you imagine the look on peoples faces when that car beat them at the drag strip. new wheels and a proper alignment are a must though.

I just want to go on record that those headlight trim pieces look like absolute fuckshit garbage on ANY Miata.
