Default why do people think their miata is worth so much?

http://dallas.craigslist.org/pts/647229786.html

$2000 1991 with 214k miles, hit in the rear, short nose, and really ******* ghetto.
http://dallas.craigslist.org/car/644890505.html


I emailed this guy a few times, told him the car in "good" condition KBB'd for $1500 and he told me blue book means nothing. Then I e-thugged him a few times, so I expect him to come back at me with a real offer because I'm pretty ******* hardcore, and ************* know to not **** me off if they don't want me to fistfuck their soul and I'm "100% not ******* around."

I've gotten 35mpg on the freeway several times, though I'm not sure I'd trust that one on the freeway.

Werd. I see 90-93 miatas listed for $4-6k all the time on CL. Can't believe it but I guess that's what they're selling for right now to the right buyer.

i've pretty much determined that my mission in life is to **** with people. Some hill billy called me a "------" yesterday in traffic, so i got out of the car to see if he wanted to spar. I just flipped the crazy switch again this week, and I'm ready to kill.
