Default 1990

Just saw this 90 on craigslist. It's like 20min from me. It's not a 94 like I want but still, what do you guys think?

No price listed

WOW!
That'd be a first!

Probably pass on it - Front bumper cover is warped
No Price.
It is a re-paint also. = Possibly no big deal
I would also say that the Mileage is somewhat "FISHY", in my book.
------------------------
$3,000 to $3500

What the hell are "Sport Mirrors"?

"Day/Night Lever"? You can change the sun position from this miata?

I used to work for RK Chevy when I was going to school down there....Don't buy a used car from them, please. Don't ask why, just DON'T do it.

Let's just say it's not exactly the most ethical operation in the world...their used cars department is a joke, the "mechanics" that work on them act like they were recruited from Jiffy Lube. The Chevrolet, Buick, Subaru service departments were OK at best but stay the hell away from any of their used cars. I can't speak for the Toyota department as its aat another location I never had any dealings with.

Also, I would be surprised if the car is priced at anything less than $5500.

Yes, mileage does seem a very low for the year. Check to see if even the odometer cable is even working. Clutch fluid needs to be flushed, and the bumper is a sign to look more closely at the front of the car and the frame rails.
The list of options kills me..... I especially like the mention of "front" bucket seats, like this was a four seater. Duh?
My favorite is when someone posts an add for a Miata and they have to mention it's a convertible. More Duh?
The car overall is clean, so price would be deciding factor. I'm sure you could find that '94 from a private seller for about the same monies they expect for that one.

Thanks for the help guys, that's why I posted. I guess I should just wait for the 94. I'd also prefer to find one from a private seller. I'm glad to hear about that dealership instead of being screwed over but then again, I guess most dealerships can't be trusted too much. Thanks again, i'm just getting impatient waiting.
