Default CATFISH GARAGE QUEEN $27,000.00

Catfish number 5, built for me by Cord Bauer, driven only locally a few hundred miles.

Has never been raced or autocrossed.

Titled and registered in New Jersey as a normal vehicle(quite a story) and not due for inspection until the end of 2020.

Car has spent most of its life up in the air in the garage.

I realize this is out of the range of most members, but I am offering it here before it goes on sale at a higher pice in other venues.

I wish I was able to see this in person. Please do tell the NJ registration story!

I'll be interested in about 17 years.

I would be happy to send LOTS of pics to anyone interested. There is one above that was posted initially.
The story will be answered to trusted members only by PM. There will be one on the way to TurboTim today.

It's a beautiful car and I have some interest. I can understand not posting a million pictures but a proper ad for a $27k ask would have a lot more info.
Is the drive train stock?
What are you running for suspension?
Do you know what it weighs?
Is it titled as a Miata?

Those of us who are enthusiasts and acquaintances would really love to see a few more pictures just for the satisfaction it brings to see attractive cars. And maybe we will share them with a friend.

Weighs about 1000lbs less than the Miata the drivetrain was powering previously. I'm sure it is plenty spirited.

Humm, an Exocte weight of 1400 + pound (turbo units are 1600 pounds, and you can't get more simple then an Exocet frame) range assembled only knocks off about 800 pounds off an MX5 weight, not sure with a full-bodied car, unless all carbon fiber construction which it looks like the Catfish has aluminum sheet for interior door skins and rear firewall, would reduce 200 pounds more weight. I think the car needs to be put a scale! Just sayen.
Wish him the best in the sale of the Catfish, it's going to be a tough one.
​​​​​​​you're obviously too poor to afford it, so stop crapping up his post before I show you the door.

Easy fellas.

Thanks for the backstory Bruce. I want this car but I cannot have this car.

I pull all of this "too poor" stuff with my Cummins 3500 RAM dually in my 24 ft Cross enclosed trailer. oh, almost forgot my 92 Pinto 2.3l turbo efi with an 8.8 diff, t-5 wc that is been on the build schedule for a while. Which is sitting on my 2 post filt in one of my 6 garage bays. While writing all of that, your correct, I'm poor! Car poor!
Its sad that you thought you needed to say all of that...

I've seen one of these running Miatas at Laguna Seca. It was cool and I had no idea what it was. GLWS
