Looks like a regular nb2, LS (basic 5sp car with ps/ac/power windows)

I was going to say its overpriced, but then I noticed the low mileage, so its not bad.

Worth snagging for $7,000 just to flip it? Figure I can get rid of the hardtop for 1k. Hopefully she has the factory wheels.

My gut feeling says you'd probably have to get it for around $5-6k to make it worth flipping.

Unless your goal is a free hardtop. In which case i'd probably pay $7k for it, keep the hardtop, then sell the car during tax season.

flip? meh
keep? yeah.
super low mileage original unmolested NB with matching hardtop is a great car to start with

and if you drive a proper nb2 like that back to back with an na you'll never want an na again.
drove my dads 92 the other day and my miata feels like a pagani zonda compared to it lolz

it's a base model. don't believe any grandma drove it. I wouldn't pay over 6500 and I'd have to want to keep it.

Not worth flipping at that price either.

Books for high 7's without a hardtop up in my area. I just sold my 02 SE(bought it for $1000 under book in December) for $800 over book last night.
I'll check it out just for ***** and giggles, it's only 10 miles from my house.

I didn't know what model it was to book it at initially, and I was hoping it had a 6 speed...

Already have the VIN. Will do. She's meeting me at work today so I can throw it up on the rack.

Anybody give me definite answers? Trying to figure out pricing before I actually see it.
Called Yuba City Mazda, they told me it is listed with 'sport suspension' 'cruise control' and the 5 speed. Guess I'll have to wait and see.

Do not want. A torsen is the one reason I'd upgrade to a NB.

What info are you looking for? If you click the VIN in your post it says which rear end and stuff it has in it...
