1996 Mazda Miata
I've recently decided to sell my 1996 Mazda Miata. This car is by no means a "looker" but it will get you from point a to point b, and is very fun to drive. it has 230k miles on it and will a little TLC I expect it to go much further (I hear these older ones go for 350k). I use this as a daily driver right now but I want to start riding my motorcycle again and if I keep it I will drive it instead.
Top and back window need replaced - but then again, it's a convertible...
Many fairly good dents
Engine has a tick (goes away once it warms up)
JUST started smoking (goes away once it warms up)
Needs crank shaft positioning sensor (check engine light just came on)
gets about 30 miles to the gallon
4 fairly new tires (rear 2 have plenty of tread and the front 2 have like new tread)
has synthetic oil
has 2 months left on inspection
As I said, I expect this car to give plenty more miles. I'm looking for $1200 OBO.
