Default Jag v12 Miata is on Ebay

The guy with the Jaguar V12 engine Miata has put in on Ebay. Currently at $2650 with 9 bids but 8 days to go.

I love the quote "basically it's 12 individual carburetors that need constant tuning". Sounds like fun to work on!

Obviously not affiliated...

He's got the money to put a damm v12 in there, but cheap enough to put a ******* style bar in there? How dumb are some people?

I can barely stand syndronizing four carbs on my "reliable" japanese motorcycle, I couldn't imagine 12 no doubt overly complicated carbs.

It would still be fun for the WOW factor but it's not for me. IIRC, it still has the 6" rear in it.

Looks like ****, and probably drives like ****. I'd rather spend the money on a clean stocker to build up myself than that abortion.

The seller seems like he's half retarded by how the auction is written.

I think it has something to do with that FAT V12 sitting in there.

Correct me if I'm wrong.

The open hood makes the trumpets on the ITB's rain catches!

I'm thinking he wanted to show off the motor but couldn't afford to fab a lexan scoop over it. (or wasn't creative enough to think of it)

"Car zips in and out of traffic real nice, gas mileage is not all that bad, its running a little rich, could use some smaller jets but it still gets around 14mpg."



Since when is 14mpg "not all that bad" in a miata for street driving??
