Motivation... I have none

$8500 Everything, I'll replace the turbo (China Charger, your choice on size, $500 non refundable deposit required)
$8000 everything as is (Save a couple hundred bucks by doing the turbo yourself)
$7000 without the hardtop
$6500 without the hardtop / carbing STB / 949 Braces
$???? we can work out a deal if there are other things you don't want...

Someone do the math and see how much $$ is in this thing....At these prices I am losing more money than I really want to think about, but I can certainly put the money I can get out of it to better use.....It would certainly make an excellent starting point for someone to build something nasty If anyone would like to see it in person or see a video of it running let me know. I'm no scammer and can assure you the car is 100% besides the turbo being shot.

Thanks dude!

Just ordered the turbo finally.....but the car is still up for grabs to anyone interested. I figure in the mean time I might as well enjoy it until it sells.

Lol, yea...I'm excited to have it ready to go, I just wish it wasn't so damn cold out

On another note to any potential buyers, I would be willing to entertain trades (Potentially with cash on your end depending on what it was). I'm primarily looking for a sporty DD like a older civic si, del sol si, prelude, integra, celica, etc.....perhaps even a stock nb miata.... I would also be interested in a tacoma, 4runner, pathfinder, etc.

First off. Selling a modded anything is like withdrawing $1000 from the ATM, flashing it off to your friends and being all awesome with it, then crumpling up $600 and tossing it in the trash. That IMO is what it is like to sell a modded car. I have tried and failed every time....even when i bend over and spread.

Yes, you will not make money as I have been told numerous times. Heck, seems everyone says you will get 50% of what you have put into it. But, in my experience that isnt even true. I would venture to guess you will get 30% back from what you invested into the car including the cost of it originally.

Part it out or sit on it. People always want items and you will have a better chance of making some cash there. Keep it. We're talking about 9k for a reliable turbo Miata. You can go buy a **** box civic any day for $2000 which will last forever and you turbo it like mad and have someone tune it for next to nothing. A Miata is way cooler than a civic! A prelude is slow, burns oil and atleast in Canada is pricey to insure. An integra is even worse than the civic (shuiend has 1 for sale). A truck.. wtf? Perhaps you just want out

Just my thoughts. Just buy lube, list the car for $4500 and good luck.

Edit.. i think the car looks pretty slick otherwise.

Its really no surprise....I knew what I was getting into when I bought it. If my car wasn't so extreme (No wipers, gutted doors, no heat, etc) I'd keep it in a heartbeat and commute. Shoot, if I just had the space to keep it stored I'd keep it. But living in the condo I have now, 3 cars is already a burden so its not an option to buy another and keep the miata. This is partly why I'm thinkin I'd like to trade with someone. I mean a miata would be perfect for me...good mpg, reliable, parts are cheap, and I already know a ton about them. If I got a stock miata or lightly modified one, I'd probably end up turbo'ing it as well, but I would definitly keep the basic ammenities mine lacks. The other cars I listed were just cars I thought about off the top of my head which could work well for my commute. There has to be someone out there that has a nice stock miata or a mildly modded one with dreams of modding the **** out of it but they just don't have the time, money, or desire to do it. Or there could always be the guy that wants a turbo'd miata, but doesn't have enough money to buy a nicely sorted one, this could be a good opportunity. Financially, I don't have to sell it and I can use my R32 to commute, but it'd just be more convenient if I could sell or trade it.

Very nice car, you do all the fab work yourself? Looks like a very well put together car, hopefully it goes to a nice home when it goes. I would almost be willing to sell the evo to buy this thing but I just cant get rid of it lol.

Took it out for a good spin this morning.... There's nothing like driving this car for the first time after a few months of not driving it!
