Default Anyone Ever See This Miata Before?

Hello all,
I would like to know if anyone has ever seen this Miata before. It is the one that I am considering purchasing. I have the money in hand ready to meet his offer, just want to know the history behind this car if anyone else knows it. It's in FL, and I'm in GA, so I haven't been able to see the car in person yet.
Thanks!

I'm pretty sure that guy posts on clubroadster all the time. It looks like a very good car to me.

I've seen it on ebay more than once. Thought it was overpriced.

omfg. I need to do that, but in green. Hopefully it performs half as good as it looks.

Yeah, that's actually how I found the car. Talking to the owner, he said he started the price high so only serious bidders would look at it.
What's overpriced though, it has a lot done to it? I'm looking for any opinions, not questioning your opinion.
Thanks!

I don't remember the specifics of the car, but want to say it's some sort of bastardized diy turbo system (though looks like he did it right) and the starting bid was $9k, on a $5k car.

Why don't you shoot some details of the build?

You've named 2 things among a few others that I'd change about the car.

You can get a Miata like that for 5K? I have to move to Atlanta-ish...

At first glance it looks like a really nice car. The exterior is very nice, but I never have really liked those wheels. Under hood looks good until you start really looking at it.
Breather on the PCV
Bronze painted thermostat, sorta..
NASA Gold heat shielding?
FMII...sry I had to

Yeah, like I said, a few things I want to change and fix, make the car more customized to me. I'm not big on the attempted paint job on the thermostat, the heat shielding actually works really well, but it's coming off the intake manifold, and I'm going to find some way to tone it down/hide it, that's a little more bling under the hood than I want.
As for FMII, they seem to have their sh** under control, and I keep hearing how easy the Link is to use. I'm pretty excited about the whole deal.
