excuse me for sounding like a know-it-all, i can't help it because i am, but that is not an A package. its a base model. 1991 A package would have power steering and a leather wheel.

Scott, I think you should follow up on the one Ben suggested.

They don't get much cleaner than that... a hose-down of the engine bay and that thing is ready to go. Ditch the AC and you've got a winner... if you like red

The Z-car wheels on the first one are the best selling point!!

you think people would shine up the engine bay before they sell it so its easier to sell, but for some reason they leave it all nice a dirty, still bugs me.

This one was owned by a lady (50s) since 1996. Only selling because she sold her two homes and is moving in with her in-laws and has no room for it. Very well kept, I like it better than the first for a few reasons. Insurance is coming out today to adjust ours, I'll most likely go with this one over the previous. Hopefully by this weekend....sorry im picky and slow, its cold out and I have a feeling im not warm blooded and i tend to slow down in winter months.

If you have the VIN, I can tell you how it was equipped from the factory

i think i agree with paul here. the A-package had power steering, alloy wheels, and leather wrapped steering wheel..... unless someone depowered the car and put steelies on it. although steelies could just have snow tires like i have on my car right now.

Can't attach a screen shot:

But car is base, base, base. It's also a CA model.

Everyone does realize you can just call Mazda with the VIN number and they can give you all the details about the car regarding its optional equipment......

Scott, PM me with your phone number and I'll forward it to the owner of the car I was talking about. They didn't want me to give you their number

The car is not repairable. The value is:

Base value $4900

Plus 3% sales tax of $147

Plus DMV fee of $12

Less $500 deductible of $500


TOTAL Value = $4706 plus $225 towing
Salvage Value =$1,020

NET REFUND after the buy back = $3,911


yay!

We submitted over 3k in receipts because they said it would increase the value, so I'll have the final value on Monday. Hoping making a deal on that car this weekend.
