Default hello please guide me

hi, firstly, great site, im looking forward to getting sore eyes from reading and reading.

i dont have a miata (or mx5 as we call them here in aus) yet but give me a week or so.

i thiught it better to get an idea of what i want before i through down the money so i hope you can give me some direction.

im not sure yet if i will add a turbo yet until ive researched it better but feel free to convince me. i had a datsun 1600 p510 sr20 turbo and i loved it so im def not anti turbo but issues such as fuel consumtion registration and insurance will ultimatly guide my hand.

the cars i am considering are:

1989 with tein coilovers, lsd, pod filter 156 000 kms $9,500

1993 new timing belt, clutch $8,600

2000 fsh rust and sound proofed 94,000 kms $16,000

i like the look of the nb, the 89na has some nice gear but you dont fit that gear and then not thrash it, and the 93 seams a steal at that price
(in au$ btw)
any thoughts? cheers sen.

holy jesus ... those things are that expensive over that side of the pond? I should get my car on a boat to aus. to sell it. According to the website that I checked, the 93 is just under $6,000 USD and the 2000 is a tad over 11,000 ... over here those cars would cost nearly half that price. Anyway, If it were me I would get the one with the nicest body/interior and the one that looks like it was tampered with the least. My favorite cars are ones that were bought by an old guy looking for a thrill, they baby the crap out of em.
