Maybe not crack, but at least some low end prescription drugs. Trying to recoup 1/2 of his $9K in mods, plus a $2K car. Seems like a reasonable (but upper end) starting point, but I can't see it selling for $5K unless he is lucky and maybe in the spring. He will have to part out if he wants to hit $5k now.

1990 Mazda Miata A-Package.
Build date of June, 1989.
220,000 original miles on chassis, about 100,000
on recently refreshed and installed 1.6 Long nose crank engine.

OEM 14" wheels from 1994-97 painted
black, with some chipping. (were painted quickly) Car was in a minor accident in October of
2007, hit on the drivers side front. Exterior panels have been replaced, but damage is still present
under those exterior panels. Car chassis is straight, drives straight and looks good. Interior is
immaculate, except for a slightly worn drivers seat, carpet and crank in the dash. Air conditioning
has been 80% removed. Charcoal canister removed. Power steering has been removed as well. Needs a windshield.

CLEAN TITLE, NO RUST.

I like how someone wants to sell a highly modified car for top dollar and only puts 2 pics.

"about 100,000 on recently refreshed and installed 1.6 Long nose crank engine."

100,000 miles is a RECENTLY refreshed motor?? Put down, the crack pipe.

Oh, on a personal note.. I really want to punch anyone in the face that uses the word "immaculate" to describe a car. I don't give a **** how well cared for the car is NO ******* USED CAR CAN EVER PHYSICALLY BE IMMACULATE!!


Quote:
Merriam Webster:

Main Entry:
im·mac·u·late Listen to the pronunciation of immaculate
Pronunciation:
\i-ˈma-kyə-lət\
Function:
adjective
Etymology:
Middle English immaculat, from Latin immaculatus, from in- + maculatus stained — more at maculate
Date:
15th century

1: having no stain or blemish : pure
2: containing no flaw or error
3 a: spotlessly clean
b: having no colored spots or marks <petals immaculate>
— im·mac·u·late·ly adverb


Hey, Dumbfuck... Your car, by dictionary definition IS NOT ******* IMMACULATE! DOUCHE!
