Default Has anyone else seen this Miata?

Saw this car a few weeks ago on craigslist and then saw it in person yesterday on my way home. I like it, the wheels are to big but other than that the car is awesome.

$20K is quite price for an '91 regardless of what's under the hood.

** Although I just found one on EBAY for $460. It doesn't come with anything that you need to do the whole job though. **

** And here is the whole kit EBAY $1135 **

When I clicked the craigslist link my eyes saw $2000, not $20000. I was ready to go pick it up, until I focused in on that extra "0". Definitely a sweet car, but not worth the money IMO.

I think it might be a case of the owner thinking mods directly transfer over to it's value. Does look cool though, wonder how it handles being that low.

Or maybe he's asking too much the first time around on the off chance it hits somebody just right with $20k to burn. Seems odd not to post a dyno sheet in an ad for a car like that.

Well he did post the hp/lb ratio. But you'd have to know what it weighed. 2400 lbs? Then it's what, about 350 whp?
