Default $70K Miata - 5 inches wider than a Dodge Viper on eBay...

This is... something... - Mazda MX 5 Miata | eBay

I give them props on the fit and finish of the body work but sheesh, I can't imagine it's going to sell for much at all.



"This is an unique piece of art that I've spent close to 70000$ building. All fiberglass body parts (no plastic added on metal). The car is 5 inches wider than a Dodge Viper. Wheels are 3 pieces 11,5 inches front and 13,5 rear mounted on 255-35 ZR18 in front and 295-30 ZR18 rear. Tires are NEW. Manual 6 speed transmission issued from a 2002 SS Camaro with ceramic clutch, 8,8 Ford differential, STD suspension with custum camber front and rear. 4 pistons disk in front with 15'' cross drilled disks, New paint from last year... There is way too much to say ! Interior would need a little love. I can send as many pictures as needed, open to send a film as well if you want to hear the roar it makes. Don't worry, it's a Bad *** !"

Every so often you'll see good, quality work, done so distastefully that it basically ruins itself.

I mean I don' hate it. The wheels could be better. For that kinda money I'd expect the engine bay to be spotless and there to atleast be wheel caps on the wheels. He shoulda just went to FM and had them build it cause it looks like whoever he hired did a ****-poor job. Cheap seats too. But, that's some good body work.

This.

Acquire mint MSM for 10-12k.
Have FM do it up for 40k.
Body work and interior for 10-20k.

Would end up with the most epic miata in existence for the same price.

As much as I love my Mazdas I think I'd buy a used C6 Z06 for 44K and don't worry about any of that. Track the hell out of it, drive it to work every day.

Oh absolutely, without question.

I'm just saying, If I was stupid filthy rich, had absolutely nothing better to do, and decided to do up a miata this way, that's the route I'd take.

So many things to say about this...... I'll just pick one.

Fiberglass the entire body to make it look "custom" and leave the factory stick on spoiler on the trunk lid....

The $70K question is; would you pay $70K for an extra 5 inches?

5 inches wider, are we talking diameter, radius or circumference?

5 inches of girth. You won't hit the g spot, but you'll demolish everything before that

I didn't know gayz had G-spots. Is this still a miata forum? Or have we moved on to excessive fiberglass and gold chains?
