Question Has anyone Seen this ?

This is my first Miata.... And when i would order parts for it, it was pretty common for me to get the wrong parts. When i would order parts, and was asked for a production date I would give them this.....

But thats only part of the problem.... My car is a NB which supposedly does not exist in this year according to allot of parts vendors. Anyone ever seen this?

date of manufacture is not the same as model year.

I suggest you order parts for the latter.

I have been... I figured this out the first month after I bought it about a year ago. I was just curious if anyone had seen a Pro Date like this before.

Do you want a Pro Date with the Ban Hammer?

Nice 1998 Miata you've got there. I'll have to check on mine when I get a chance.

I wouldn't be shocked in the slightest if you could sell it for far more than it's worth on Miata.net.

Then you can buy the red NB i've been talking about and pocket some change.

I'm being serious. Post this on miata.net. Wait for some weird old smelly dude to send you a PM demanding that you sell it to him for $10k.

I want to see it posted over there just to watch the "collectors" foam at the mouth and fight about it.

Edit: Just found it, this could be fun.

David, you may have to start a new thread with some tag line to get them foaming at the mouth.

Based off the VIN, it's a 99. Does the VIN plate on the dash match the nader sticker?

I'd go with a thread title like "rare prototype NB for sale"
