Alas that car was totalled. I had to buy a rolling shell and transport every part to another car. The car is now silver. (Used to be BootedNB's car)

Paid $3500 for a 75K mile stock 94 with a hardtop three years ago but I took my time and looked and shopped for the right deal on the right car.

Searchtempest is your friend for searching Craigslist. Here is a search I did within 500 miles of Billings for Miatas for sale. Maybe you'll see something to check out. I saw several 99's under 100K miles for around 4k on that list.

Too much. $4500 for a classic red '94 R Package with ~101k miles, shitty paint and of course tons of rattles.

March of 07 I paid $6000 cash for my 99 with 103,000 miles from a dealer. Was 1 owner car and bone stock except for the 16" motegi wheels. I have since added everything...roll bar, hardtop, turbo and everything turbo related, gauges, MS, LC-1, exhaust, removed A/C. I'd guess I have at least $4000 on top of what I paid for it, I never figured it out. I do know that I am more than happy with it, it's at least 3 seconds faster in the 1/4 than stock, and I get better gas mileage.

In November, 1999, I financed my '99 PEP with hardtop and dealer-added leather seats for four years. Probably paid just under $30,000 all told.

'97 with nb ht and defroster glass window soft top, 135k km (~84k mi) in red, safetied and emissions tested, taxes in $4500 in Dec 08. Asking was $8000 (down from 10k two months before) at a used merc/bmw dealer, it was traded on a z4.

The owner of the dealership wasn't selling much and I overheard that he was going to miss a mortgage payment so I got my car for my price.

Keep in mind everything is 1000000000X more money in Canada and 1.8 na's are somewhat rare here.
