I have a 1993 Mazda Miata for sale, in USA - Virginia.



Asking price is $5000



Price: $5,000 lets get this over with, this is a stupid low price for the car, someone come take this away.

UPDATE: Car runs safely on 20psi and is ballsss fast, still needs a tune since the AFRs are around 10, but perfectly driveable. Burns a little oil at startup due to high oil pressures, but does not burn oil once warmed up! COME FOR A RIDE IN THIS THING AND FALL IN LOVE! I think my price is more than fair for a car with quality parts and a fully built motor. Let's make a sale happen!

I have a 1993 Mazda Miata for sale, in USA - Virginia.

Mileage: 130000 miles on chassis, 20000 on motor, 5000 on fresh head


Name: Alex

Location: Downtown Richmond, VA

Best way to be reached: [email protected] (cell # by request)

Title: In hand

Reason for selling: I can't fit, plain and simple. I'm 6'5" and short of doing a custom roll bar setup, even despite my efforts, I can't fit safely in this car



Here is the scoop on this car, hopefully this prevents any misunderstandings about the car's history. Originally built by Terry @ Fortune Auto. Then the car went to the next owner in NOVA, while he owned it, it got the 6 speed swap along with many new goodies such as a fresh head. The car sat at a shop up in NOVA for a while, the shop went under, and then the car traveled around to small shops to get it back in running order. After several months, I was finally able to buy the car in February 2010. I replaced the differential that was going out with a new unit from a parts supplier in Georgia. Also I spent several days on the paint in this car, I fully polished the car using a 2 step process with my porter cable, then I fully waxed the car. Then the car threw me for a loop if you will on a very simple issue. It blew the main fuse while I was working on installing a headunit. So I spent weeks doing other little things on the car, and in hindsight it seems so silly that I didn't check the fuse and go right back to motoring. Well I took the car up to a race shop and they found the issue. While the car was there I also had them replace the fragile RX-7 ignition system with the Bosch setup that the ecu likes better and is much more reliable. The original purpose for the car being there was to install my harnesses and racing seats. After picking the car up, I found that I still was not satisfied with where I was sitting. I was below the bar for street use, but my head was in the danger zone for hitting the bar without a helmet, and with a helmet my head was over the bar. This made the car useless to me. Honestly, I am just trying to get back on the track, and this car just ain't ready for that duty for someone of my physique.

Notes:

Car is currently on 20psi but needs a tune to be faster. The tune is from before the injectors were upgraded so it runs rich but safe. Since the car runs rich, it becomes overloaded with fuel before WOT.

This car is just silly fast, no lie it's scary fast!

Car can be driven home, but you will need insurance and transport tags

In Summary:

Good: Really damn fast, awesome to go topless on nice days, chicks dig convertibles, stanced, amazingly fun to drive, handles incredibly, name brand/quality parts, new diff and ignition system in the last 500 miles, paint shines, clean clean body

Bad: It's not in your driveway, convertible rear window is torn and needs replacement, no headunit currently in the car, tach does not work, needs a tune, turbo burn oil, and again the fact you aren't boosting around in this thing right now[/QUOTE]

I thought the price was a typo, lol. Good gravy, what a deal.

Any chance you can dig up some install/build pics? I'm sending this page link to a friend and I know he will want to see some more pictures of the car and how it was built.

Unfortunately I can't take credit for the build, I bought this car in February of this year. I can point you in the direction of numerous people who will vouch for the build on this car. I really just want this thing gone, it has sat in my garage since February aside from the occasional drive around the neighborhood. I'm 6'5" and there's nothing that can be done to make me sit safely in this car. I know what I want to buy next, and it's just an issue of selling this car for that last bit of cash and the spot in the garage. I'm not negotiable on the price as most of you can understand with a car like this. I just want it gone, I get trade offers all day long, but I need cash and this thing gone. I've dropped the price over and over again, and this is kind of the last stop before idk what I do, blow it up out of frustration?!?

Take the seat out and sit on the floor. Instant room. If that works, stitch a pad to the floor and back.

Have you tried a race seat sitting on the floor? Shame to sell it, if you can make it work.

Tell the people that who are trying to haggle me at this price lol. It's got a few small issues as I've outlined, but nothing that can't easily be dealt with and still end up with a stupid good deal on the car.

Yes, its been around the block but most owners were listing it for 15k+. I'm not sure but I think somewhere we posted about this thing when it was being fucked up at Atif's shop (AAA motorsports or something).
