Default Houston the hot bed for used miatas?

I've always known that Houston was the hot bed for used diesel trucks, hell every 3rd car on 290 is a F250 powerstroke, but I was looking around for a (read: cheap) NA for a new project, and on craigslist, theres' 42 used miatas listed..

In Louisville, there's like 5.

Things are looking up. Gotta finish my Suzuki Samurai first, but I want to pick a NA up in the next couple months.

There was an automatic NB on the Milwaukee one last week! There's a miata for sale on craigslist maybe every 6 weeks here.

I also saw a '94 M-Edition locally for $3800. It was parked in front of a bank, doors were open so I let myself in. The interior was clean as hell, 89K miles, minor door dings, great paint, no rust, etc... Great car. Sadly I didn't have the kind of cash around :(

Compared to Louisville, it is.. There's like 6 listed on Craigslist here.. 42 seemed like a lot to me.
