I got mines from Mazda mechanics, they were planning to build like a SM. Buuut the dealership closed down. I came through with the cash after a RB25 beauty broke my heart. $2500 with a spare NB motor, radiator, and junk. Both parties was friends of my dad actually.

$5400?? '92 with 93xxx?? miles, back in '01. Mint interior, decent exterior, Jackson Racing Header. Ended up having rust in the back fenders that popped thru the first winter which is still there. The plastic rear window lasted 2 winters.

Man it's been a long time.

I'm glad to see I'm not the only one to spend too much (my opinion anything over $4k for a pre '99 model is too much, no matter the condition or mileage, I didn't know better back then). If I could do it over again, I would have spent the extra $ I had on a newer car (I think it was an '01 I had lined up, with decently low miles), instead of an older car and mods.

I got my '92 for $650. 90k on the odometer. It needed a timing belt and rear window. It wasn't in bad shape except for a dent in the rear fender and flaking paint

It's starting to show its age...like me!

Paid 9k (cdn) for my '99 in 2008. Bought it off my brother in law's best friend who never drove it in the winter. It had 68,xxx kms on it. Came with the hard top and a set of brand new winter tires, everything was stock. Miatas fetch a pretty good premium here in Ontario. Haven't seen too many under 5k regardless of age and mileage.

$5100 for a 97 with 87k from an older lady. It was originally bought from Jeff Haas Mazda in Houston(which was right down the street from where I grew up) and still had the window sticker, license plate frame, and cards from that dealer...pretty cool.

Traded my $1500 integra type R for a 2000 miata with roll bar, door bar,tein suspension, carbon fiber hood, and work emotion wheels. Only reason the guy wanted my car was because it had working A/C.

$5200 for my '99 with 105k in 2008. Stock w/ a clogged cat.

Ummm yeah.

$14k

But this was for a 2002SE with 32k miles in Jan of 08.....so 6 year old car with 32k. Paid exactly KBB value.....but got Ohlins suspension, FMII turbo kit, BF rollbar, harnesses, sway bars, PWR radiator w/slim fans, FM clutch and flywheel, FM exhaust, MSM spoiler and a boat load of spares including a set of new 6ULs with new Toyo RA-1s, a spare front lip, all the stock suspension, a set of prestince OEM 15" wheels with brand new tires, and every other stock part that had been upgraded were all in boxes.... all in all...there was at least an extra $20,000 in "stuff" on the car. It was a steal for $14k.....and I've always wanted an 02SE.

I have since gone though everything....new exhaust, added chassis bracing, tuned suspension, replaced turbo manifold, Bomex mirrors, Brembo brakes, SSR wheels, MSM headlights, GV bumper, side skirts, MSM mirror, 10AE seats, swapped door panels, swapped gauge faces, coolant reroute, dyno tuning, among other things......

Yay for me overpaying . I paid 12k for a 1 owner stock 02SE. I guess that is what happens when you buy from a dealer lol. At least I got a hard top and the car was like new.

Not really all that bad for the condition , the fact that you got a hard top./..and that you got it from a dealership. That last point added a couple thousand dollars though.

92' 63K bought 6 years ago for $3200 in mint condition all the way around. New top, new paint and the longest repair log history I have ever seen. I saw it at my dads work and asked the guy if he would sell it and he did. Sold my suburban for it. Best thing I ever did.
