Crazy about the '90, people get auction fever bad or something cause that's ridiculous. I would think the car with all of the body mods and drivetrain mods is worth alot more but i gave a lowball figure just because it's ebay. With your story of the busted *** '90 going for $3k this might end up being a crazy auction. I'd like it, i have a cheap donor car local to me. Just can't afford another miata right now.

that car was INSANE when the motor was in it, now the motor is in a tubbed tube frame car.

I will never forget riding in the 600rwhp Miata, its unbelievable.

God, that car is fugly. If i bought the car I would have to ditch the hood, headlights, and taillights for stockers and get a black paintjob at the very least for me to like it. Personally stock body kit is my favorite by far.

edit, did i mention i dont like the rims either?

originally he was planning on keeping the yellow car and dropping in a more "mild" motor, which to him was more along the lines of 400-450rwhp.

He said as soon as that car made the 616 that the chassis was way overstressed and the big motor was going in a tube frame car.

Now a reason to see my turbo car and but a LS1 or better beast.
It would give a good starting point for a Monster Miata.
My problem is getting it to Alabama. Having the steering rack would make easier to move.
