About the same thing that possesses us to mod a chick car...... STOCK SUCKS!

The Miata just happens to be a great RWD candidate for V8's

Welcome. Good luck getting a Miata, I just bought my first one and love it.

so, this is what i am looking at.









pros
- very clean inside and out..... there might be something on the drivers seat but idk yet.
- i like the sleek look of it. the factory body kit and stuff
- i like the color how it matches the wheels

cons
AUTOMATIC!!!!!!!!!!!!

lol
thats about it though

its an 01
125,000 miles
i will be getting it for 5600

im thinking about using this one as a dd and picking up another one when i finally start working, like an older one specifically designed for building.

idk yet though, my mind is going a million mph right now.

thought and opinions?

Looks like it's in pretty good shape, but I would never buy an auto miata. Just my 0.02

I can't really advise you one way or the other on that, as I know nothing about what that would require. I know it's pretty common on 240sx's.

Here are some other options-
You'd have to immediately get rid of the awful wheels:

A fairly clean NA:

That's similar to my 99, but I paid $4500 with a hardtop and 109k miles.
