What other set of wheels do you have available for it? I am in NC, but interested in it. I am wondering if you could share with me when (mileage wise) the maintenance items have been performed? I am concerned due to the high mileage & I'm also wondering if there is any rust or what you've done to check for/prevent rust (given the mileage, I assume it's seen some winter driving). With that being said, how long have you owned it & how many miles have been put on it in that time?

Here is a link to a excel sheet that I made of any receipts he gave me. There are a few gaps in the timeline where I do not have records from but I got most of the maintenance put on the sheet.

I have a set of 15x7 Voxx Legra wheels with snow tires on it that I would sell the car for $6250 on. They are the ones in this picture.

The original owner drove it for 236,655 miles and I have put about 5k miles on it over the 7 months I've owned it, (I mainly drive it from Ohio to Wisconsin and back). The original owner garage stored it up until last winter where he drove it through the winter. Because of this, there is a small spot of rust starting on the driver side rocker panel in the regular spot that Miata's rust. Before winter this year I sanded it down and sprayed rust reformer on it but couldn't actually fix it because the weather got too cold right after that. I plan on fixing it this spring but for now it is still there. Besides that there are no other rust spots. Here is a picture of the rust as of a few days ago, I made sure to cover any spots where metal was showing and the pinch weld with the rust reformer so no more rust would form this winter, (hence the reason for a few black spots in the picture, that is not all rust, just the spot in the rear that looks textured) This picture also shows the Voxx Legra wheels.

Sorry about the delay in replying to you. When you sanded down the rust, were you able to sand to the bare metal without coming through the wall of the rocker (I think that was the case, but it is a little difficult for me to tell from the pictures)?

It looks like this car has been pretty well maintained. From the maintenance records, it looks like it hasn't had the timing belt replaced since 65k - that seems pretty much impossible to me - any idea when it was more recently replaced? Also do you have any idea if the water pump has been replaced (I know that on several cars, the waterpump is often replaced whenever the timing belt is replaced)?

The rust was sanded down to metal without going through. It isn't bad at all, I just don't want someone to drive a ways and see there was a spot where rust has been repaired... Those are all the records I was given, he told me it was most but not all of them. There are time gaps and missing information because of that. I do not know the current miles on the water pump, as I could not find any records on it.

With the warmer weather in Ohio the rust has been fully repaired and repainted. The current miles are just under 240k and there are still zero issues with it. This is a current picture of the car. The enkie wheels have been sold so the car will be sold on the voxx legra wheels for $6300. https://m.flickr.com/#/photos/[email protected]/16831610676/in/set-72157648328652248/
