Default I NEED A MIATA! 95 civic ex coupe 5spd vtec 39mpg trade for a miata(possibly civic+$)

Here is a run down on the car.

1995 Honda Civic Ex (White Exterior/ Grey Interior)
-1.6L Vtec Engine 145k Miles
-5 Speed (Closer ratio box, Smooth Shifting)
-New Clutch
-Power Windows
-Power Mirrors
t-Power Door Locks
-Power Steering
-Air Conditioning
-11 lbs wheels
-Falken Azeni's 90% tread
-1" lowering springs
-KYB Gr2 shocks

Bads
-Dent on drivers fender (fenders are dirt cheap for these things $100) If you can fix it then its free!
-Small dent on door. (See pictures for details)
-Bumper paint

This has been a great car to me. I bought it from my friend (previous owner). It was well taken care of by him also. I am getting about 37-40 MPG with moderate throttle. I can have the car smogged, and I will also pay for registration. Overall I think this is a reasonable trade for a earily miata. Let me know what you think.

Good luck with that one around this forum, pretty sure you're not going to get many if any bites on it.

I figured..they are light, and fit. I saved about 6lbs per corner with them.

Because if we would rather have civics, we would have bought them not miatas, and if anyone has a mita that would rather have a civic, i doubt they would last or even attempt to last on this forum for any mount of time.

You will have much better luck trying to sell you car and then buying a miata. I wish you good luck though.

Its not so much if people would rather have civics, but if they need a more practical car. This is the reason for me getting a civic in the first place. The need for the civic has blown by and buying a miata is in my sights.
I know how it is. People with import cars make fun of miatas all the time, and underrate them. I was a victim of it too. There is no reason to "strike first" because you own a miata. I guess I should have stated I was a previous miata owner. I probably might have gotten a little less slack.
I am just looking to sell the civic and get a miata. I was just giving the opportunity to see a non-modded civic for practical reasons. It would also make it bit easier for me.

If I don't sell on here I'm not worried. I will have a miata soon enough, and then I can join the club again.

Why not just keep the Civic and buy a Miata?
