Default WTB: Cheap Miata

I'm looking for a cheap miata, 1.6 or 1.8. I am planning on doing a 1.8 build on it, so it doesn't have to run (or run well)

I've seen the one in FL, but it's just too far to justify. Looking for something close to KY or between KY and Houston.

Let me know!

The only thing good about that car is that it's close. I could set it on fire with only a 2 hour drive.

What are you looking to pay??? I used www.craigshelper.com and found a few in the $1500 range but that may be too much if you are looking for an under $1000 car.

Just add in your states you are searching and put a max price (I put $2000) and browse city by city.

That's the cheapest one I've seen in Houston since Feb. The last one was $900, was clean as hell but had a bad motor. Sold in under 2 hours.

crazedlist.org is also helpful.

One here in Tampa $600, stuck in 3rd gear, good motor (supposedly), but NO TITLE

http://tampabaymiatas.net/forum/view...?p=54489#54489

NO TITLE makes it practically worthless, so offer $50.00.

My search area is currently: Kentucky, Indiana, Ohio, Tennessee, Atlanta and Houston.

I would think Illinois or St Louis wouldn't be out of the question.

Still looking, something in the Houston area.. I almost snagged a 96 for $500, but it sold before I could get it. :(
