Default My NB Craigslist Miata

I've been considering what I should make my DD lately since my 93 always seems to be broken and I miss dailying a convertible. Last week an ad on craigslist made up my mind for me.

A 99 miata was listed for 1200 bucks with "deer damage". Turns out the guy was retired and didn't feel like keeping the car any longer. When I showed up to take a look, I realized it had always been garaged (car is just covered in dust in pics), 82k miles, and had a new glass top. I offered him 2k on the spot (since there was others interested) and walked away with the car. For another 500 I ended up with a painted door and fender to replace the dents and cosmetic damage.

Here's some shots of my new DD:





Here's shots of the fender/door:

You are an angry individual! The CL "deals" come few and far between, not only that they are gone within an hour of being posted.

Wouldn't you for that car? Guy had a lot of interest and may have been wavering. I'd have done the same standing there.

Yes, there were a few offers above the 1200 mark, and I wanted to ensure I would get the car. The private party KBB in "good" condition is 5.2k with excellent at 5.7k. So far I'm in 2.5k.

a person is willing to pay a tremendous amount for water since he needs it to survive, however since there are competing suppliers of water he is able to purchase it for less than he is willing to pay.
