Default My $400 Hardtop

I looked at the local club website yesterday and saw someone was selling a hardtop for $400. I went and picked it up today and it is a mint condition Evo Orange hardtop without a scratch on it. It had been hanging in her garage for the last 7 years.

Interesting thing is they made just over 600 cars in that color and I now have two hardtops in that color. I thought $800 was a deal for the first one, I was shocked to see this for $400 and only had to drive 20 minutes to pick it up.

I love the orange. I may paint my track car that color after the seasons over.

Seriously it was pure luck. I found it a few hours after it was posted on the MN Miata club website. That club is generally made up of weekend drivers who don't mod their cars and have no need for a hardtop.

Suddenly I feel a strong urge to end your life.



That's odd.
