'94 m-editions were montego blue, but it was a standard color choice for 95, 96, and 97.

'97 m-editions were green.

Yours is not an m-edition.

if you keep making posts like this you will get slammed, not your car.

Sorry, looks like a normal 1997 miata in montego blue. Also it looks like you have a black interior, and according to the m.net nerds the 1997 m edition had tan leather.

But... Welcome, montego blue is a tight color . You should put your location in your profile.
