Default My latest Miata Find

well guys, as I am writing this there is one more Miata now sitting in my garage, the nice thing about Miatas is I can get 2 of them, my VW GTi and the Lexus IS300 all into my 36 x 24 garage. On new years eve, the day after my birthday, my g/f and I spent the day driving to the twin cities, mn(4 hr drive) to pick up our latest edition. An immaculate ONE owner 1992 Brilliant Black Special Edition Mazda Miata. This car is showroom condition, stored every winter and pampered beyond belief. It is a special edition black car with Tan leather(unbelievably great condition) not a crack in the leather and not a stain, mark or discoloration either, Tan top, back window original and perfect, always unzipped when it was put down and a towel was wrapped around it. and factory silver BBS wheels that are MINT condtion, not a scratch or piece of dirt on them. Oh yea, and the car has the original matching hard-top w/ rear window defroster. Everything on the car is fully operation, the engine bay is spotless, looks like a 2 year old car, not a 16 year old car, and the paint is amazing. Here are some pics at the dealership. There is not a single things that I've found to be wrong mechanically either. It has the original soft-top boot and a "velour" material one also. Even the floor mats(in the trunk in the pictures) look like new. The bumper has never been drilled into or scratched up from a license plate mounting bracket either, which is rare around here as you are required to have a front plate where I live. The car has 107K miles on it, but is in better shape than many 60K mile car I have seen. This is my sixth Miata and will probably be one I won't ever sell.
These aren't the best pictures, the car is dirty in a couple of them, but gives you the general idea. When we get some warmer weather I'll take pictures of all the goodies.

Found it on AutoTrader
The dealership was asking a really fair price, but was more than I was willing to spend on a car that I don't at all need and would have to drive 4 hrs for. I offered $3500 on a whim and they took it. Any Miata in this condition would sell for 6K where I live.

Scott, you can sell the interior for lots of money out of those on mnet, and the wheels
then swap over your junk and call it a day

Dude, I think he was referring to the pics of his recently busted car in his signature at the bottom of his posts and how he's been looking for a new clean shell, not that he's a mod so relax.

Dear 92mazdarati,

The other day I was driving down the road and I slid out of control and totaled my miata. Since then I've considered buying a new one and swapping my parts over. It's been a really sad ordeal and I've been pretty bummed out lately.

To further twist the knife in my wound I read your post about finding a really nice miata for a great price. I remember the day my miata used to look that good and boy did it not bring a tear to me eye. I'm really jealous of your purchase and I hope I can make out like you did.

Sadness aside, I'm highly offended by your lack of intelligence. My sad face would only represent my depression, the posting of your low purchase price and my double sad face, should further reinforce my sadness. My response to you was a clear statement for you look at "Baby" and see her at her worst and feel for me. But your dimwittedness (further multiplied by your choice of profession), has clouded your reasoning skills and just made you look plain stupid. MY reflection of character has shown through, I'm sad about my destroyed car. You're character has also shown through: You're a ******* retarded pig who's quick to be douche bag for no apparent reason. <-----This smile, often referred to a smilie on the internet, is a way to say "just kidding *******."

Love,
Scott.

PS. I plan, for now on, to always give my life story before I make any posts, thanks for helping me see my lost ways of online etiquette. I hope this satisfactory your ivy league education and form.

It was interesting reading the first two paragraphs. What a wonderful twist in plot with the insertion of the "******* retarded pig" sentence. I give this thread an A+!
