Default Local miata for sale.

There is a miata for sale locally for $500. Its red 90, rust and a ripped top. I really wasnt going to pick it up for a DD but more as a project car, probally either drop a 5.0 or Sr20det in there.

What should I offer for it?

$1?

I'd just go give the guy $500 because it will be gone if you wait (at least around here it would). I had one for $450 the other day and turned it down. It sold later that week for $1350 on ebay.

I guess it's bone stock, yah? If it runs good, then $500 isn't bad for a DD as long as it's got a good (no-short-nose-issues) engine and good tires.

If you're looking to mod it w/an SR20det, then wait until a 94+ with Torsen and good paint comes along. A Torsen and cheap Maaco job is at least $1500... makes sense to buy a car for $2k already with a torsen and good paint.

How about this: http://norfolk.craigslist.org/car/405915913.html
If you're really looking to do a V8 swap, that's your car. I bet if you showed up with $2k cash, she'd sell. Then offload the hardtop, Torsen, engine, tranny, and interior... and not only is the Miata free then, you might've made enough to buy this: http://newjersey.craigslist.org/car/398901446.html
You can thank me later.

I agree with the comment on the torsen. However, I scored my swap for $350 so its worth it.

General, I'm down for that. I'll split it with you, I just need to get the car home, then you can take the tires and dash. Let me know if you want to do this. My email is [email protected]. Please let me know.

If I were in NJ I would buy that in 2 seconds and then kick myself for having 4 miatas and nowhere to park them. But that's just me. You could part that out and make an easy triple back.
