Default $75k miata....again

Hasn't this piece of **** been around for years? I remember seeing it on FM's site once before. I also remember once before that the wheels were actually dipped in gold or some ****. $75k....? I say BS x 10.

75K is likely low! I hear that purple anodized charge pipes run $400 an inch. The "roll bar", guaranteed to fold in 1/2 in event of an accident, was another $5500 since it's made of an extremely rare titanium, plutonium alloy. Most important is the highly absorbent cherokee hair floor mats.

Maybe he meant $7500. What's an extra 0 between friends?

I bet the wood trim around the radio and shifter cost a pretty penny, too.

If he spent 75,000$ on that, hes a complete and total ******* moron. I dont see ANY way possible to spend that much with what I see in pictures... Unless he spent 60,000 for that "roll bar" mousetrap piece of ****.

i'd like to take that piece of **** for a test drive, find a nice curb and curb the **** out of those rims till they are squares. Bring it back, watch the guy cry as i take a **** in the engine bay.


and if i recall correctly the rollbar cost 12,000 dollars or 30 million lira

That thing has been making the classified "rounds" for about 10 years now. It was on the FM website for about 5 years, and it pops up randomly in very strange places on the internet "for sale".

There are a couple of past threads floating around here about it.

Here is one of those things in life I just do not get... again. Why would you spend $75000 on your miata? And why is it still ugly? I am confused...

I dont know guys, Do you realize how much work was done to make it 15 valves over the normal 16 valves. I just can't imagine the increased performance

If that's the case then this must be some deadbeat ebay **** trying to pull one over on someone. Maybe I'll bid $75,000 and then at the last second...I'll retract my bid. My reason for retracting will be that my dog must have walked across the keyboard or something...
