$60k. That must be including every car wash it has ever gotten along with every oil change using only the most expensive oil on the market and changing it every 1,000 miles. What a hideous vehicle. Purple and big *** chrome wheels.

I dunno, I take that back. Remove the wing and the wheels and its not too bad. I actually really dig that interior (minus that ******* ugly wood). Any idea what those seats those are, or are they custom. The door panels look pretty neat too. I'd give him $8k for it and I would want documentation on the build and a set of stock wheels thrown in with the deal.

$6,000 would be more believable.

steal!

The engine build negates the wheel weight so I don't see what the big deal is

Sans the wheels...and the wood...and the dumb leather/tan interior.

I secretly like the old skool Mazdaspeed wing.

Those are defiantly the most ugly rims I have ever seen on a miata. I would say ever but I work in bay point and there are a lot of lifted Buick's driving around with some horrifyingly ugly rims on them too.

that poor miata! looks okay in the engine bay, the rest looks like a old man, or a musclehead owned it. he had the right idea with power in a lightweight miata, but he let his fashion sense get the best of him. i bet he wears tie-dyed jamz! lol

It's funny. The wing and wheels suck, but the sum of the parts ain't bad. Compare to this car:

~1996 Mazda Miata 340whp f/s in Florida~ - MX-5 Miata Forum

I think robino migh be a member here. I like the car but at the end of the day, it's an NA with a built motor and turbo kit. Worth about $12K if that.
