Default 99 FM II, 53k miles, 250 rwhp

1999 Miata with FM II turbo kit, 248 rwhp, 53k miles

Yes, it is mine. Testing the waters but I am 99% sure it is going to be gone. Need to get a 4 door and I have some in mind that require me to get rid of my baby.

Help me find this car a new home. I have more pics if necessary.

I want to, but I want less project temptations in my life.

Cmon, nobody wants a finished turbo car? I really don't want to have to go through the headache of putting the car back to stock... Willing to accept reasonable offers.

Sigh. Only one crazy low offer so far. Am I asking too much or is nobody in the market for a complete car these days?

if you part it out let me know. I'm eying the turbo kit.

Its the price of a reasonably used MSM and makes more power.

If I could sell my 99 and the trailer and spares and knew I could do it soon I would ****** it up.

PM me. What is reasonable.

Ps grad school sucks for modding cars lol

Yes, but it is in the middle of the country, so it is a quick drive from everywhere!

Posidon, you should have sold it when you were still in SoCal. I bet you would have had more offers!
