Now that we can see how clean the car is,which it is, i'd go no higher then $6500. It's still a 92 Miata. KBB retail is still only $4575... and thats WITH the hard top. It is VERY rare to make money back on mods. Hell, i sold my 99 that was supercharged, intercoolerd, oversized crank pulley, TDR 62mm s/c pulley, full suspension setup, rollbar, new clutch 4.1 Torsen from a 96, new clutch, garage vary bumper, carbon fiber hood, new speakers and amp (no subs), and TONs of other mods.... and the car only had 100k mi (under "average"). You know how much i sold it for? $7000. Right at what KBB Retail was on the car. I could have been a ***** and held out and tried to get money back on my mods.... but God knows how long it would have taken. I was very attached to that car too... but when you move onto better things, it's time to just let the old stuff go and not treat it like gold.

Sounds like a nice one, but I bought a 99 leather, PEP, Torsen with 51K last night. I decided I'm just going to build my own. More expensive, but more fun! Now that I sold my Locost project, I need something to do.
