Default Local Miata for sale ---- $45,000

I saw this on the local listings.

ksl.com - KSL Car Classifieds

It has hood pins and iridium spark plugs. I might have to make him an offer.

$35,000 in upgrades and you kept the MSM wheels!?!?!?!? GLWS!!!!

rusty slotted rotors ftw. Glad to see the Fast and Furious look is still alive and well.

Wow, I'm half tempted to drive to Clearfield just to laugh at that guy.

550cc injectors? Not much headroom for that turbo. 2 1/2 exhaust?

That's well sorted out, new warranteed LS3 FM swap money there, rice free.

I'm sure you can talk him down to $40,000...

I'm not familiar with drag car setups - what's the hood scoop do?

emailed:

I have a few questions about the car:
Can you describe the warm-up procedure?
How does the tune required for drift and drag racing differ from the roadracing and street tune?
Are the roof and hood scoops functional?
Does the hood-scoop effectively cool the motor?

ask why he didn't remove the center console and door panels to further weight reduce it.

ask him if the $60 steering wheel has any chips in the foam.

That interior is suh-weeeet! Love the torn up dash. It has a Sparco blue seat and a new oil filter. What else could you want for 45K?




Maybe this?





Or how about a stable and the truck and trailer to haul them in?

Elise 27k, Aprilia 4.5k, truck 9k, trailer 5.5k for a total of $46,000
