Default Cheap 5.0 Miata on ebay

Seriously, if this were closer, it would likely end up in the garage. Great start for a tinkerer that will likely go cheap because of the work involved. You can't start a V8 swap for what this will probably go for.

wOW. The body looks a little rough, but it seems all the meat and potatoes are there for a nice finished product. Neat project for someone.

I always thought a monster Miata would be fun. That's a great find for someone good at body work.

However, I'd imagine that the handling in any type of slippery situation (wet roads, leaves on the road in the fall, gravel) would be seriously bad.

Nice... I have this nice "drift damage" from the kid who "owned it" before the guy I got it from. Anyone know how to tear off an entire rear quarterpanel? lol

Default was good enough for me

It looked like a **** box but I built it from parts I found in my garage - Thrashed it every day for a year and still made over 4000.00 when I sold it.
