only 70k miles, original owner, rust free car, early Bell or FM kit, and paint looks great. I would say it could be worth that much.

Blue Book says that car stock is worth $2150 in good shape. A Miata guy who knows what he's looking at might figure if it's perfect that it's worth $2500-$3000 bone-stock.

And it's got $1500 worth of used turbo parts no matter where they came from.

$7500. ****!

There are half-a-dozen superior cars here in the Classifieds that people are asking less.

Yup, the last few M1s that came up for sale here--and have not been received well--were all nicer, lower miles, and cheaper. The blue one and the black one were both great deals.

Sam hit it. I could build a car just like the ebay one for $5k or less, including purchase price of the car. Here's the platform:

well, whoever bought it paid way too much, but if i could sell a car for way more than its worth I would not hesitate and justify it by telling myself that it is worth that much to the buyer and walk away with a little extra cash in my pocket.
