Category: Import
Status: Clean Title

I have a 1993 Mazda Miata for sale, in USA - Virginia.

Mileage: 130000 miles

Asking price is $7000

Price: $7,000OBO I really just want this thing gone ASAP

Name: Alex

Location: Downtown Richmond, VA

Best way to be reached: [email protected] (cell # by request)

Title: In hand

Reason for selling: I can't fit, plain and simple. I'm 6'5" and short of doing a custom roll bar setup, even despite my efforts, I can't fit safely in this car

Here is the scoop on this car, hopefully this prevents any misunderstandings about the car's history. Originally built by Terry @ Fortune Auto. Then the car went to the next owner in NOVA, while he owned it, it got the 6 speed swap along with many new goodies such as a fresh head. The car sat at a shop up in NOVA for a while, the shop went under, and then the car traveled around to small shops to get it back in running order. After several months, I was finally able to buy the car in February 2010. I replaced the differential that was going out with a new unit from a parts supplier in Georgia. Also I spent several days on the paint in this car, I fully polished the car using a 2 step process with my porter cable, then I fully waxed the car. Then the car threw me for a loop if you will on a very simple issue. It blew the main fuse while I was working on installing a headunit. So I spent weeks doing other little things on the car, and in hindsight it seems so silly that I didn't check the fuse and go right back to motoring. Well I took the car up to a race shop and they found the issue. While the car was there I also had them replace the fragile RX-7 ignition system with the Bosch setup that the ecu likes better and is much more reliable. The original purpose for the car being there was to install my harnesses and racing seats. After picking the car up, I found that I still was not satisfied with where I was sitting. I was below the bar for street use, but my head was in the danger zone for hitting the bar without a helmet, and with a helmet my head was over the bar. This made the car useless to me. Honestly, I am just trying to get back on the track, and this car just ain't ready for that duty for someone of my physique.

Car is currently on 10psi because it needs a tune. The tune is from before the injectors were upgraded so it runs rich but safe. Since the car runs rich, it becomes overloaded with fuel before WOT.

Car can be driven home, but you will need insurance and transport tags

In Summary:

Good: Really damn fast, awesome to go topless on nice days, chicks dig convertibles, stanced, amazingly fun to drive, handles incredibly, name brand/quality parts, new diff and ignition system in the last 500 miles, paint shines, clean clean body

Bad: It's not in your driveway, convertible rear window is torn and needs replacement, no headunit currently in the car, tach does not work, needs a tune, turbo does burn a little bit of oil when the car is not warmed up(due to inefficient oil return line, working on getting this fixed)**see last picture for the oil burning culprit**, exhaust has a slight rattle at idle, and again the fact you aren't boosting around in this thing right now

Can you possibly post up some more underhood shots. Nothing specific, just more pictures of everything since this is such a heavily moddified car.

Nice car. Will the soft top sort you into a house when you sit in the car for the first time? I hope I'm in Griffyndor!
