Default WTB: Modified NA/NB in South/southeast

Hey guys,

Looking for a straight NA/NB somewhere in the South/Southeast (I'm in southern FL). Track-prepped/turbo cars are interesting to me, but stock cars at the right price are equally as interesting. 1.6 and 1.8 cars welcome. Shoot me a PM with a link to your for sale post OR PM me and ask for my phone number and shoot me over a bunch of details.

Thanks! Let me know what's out there.

Best,
Luke

Don't get a 1.6 car. Don't even think about a 1.6 car.

Shooting for a sub-2k stock car or something below 5.5k for a car with appropriate modifications

Can a Miata be straight, even with the smallest and most-aligned of panel gaps?

Fixed that one for you. If you accept the above correction, then come to Tallahassee and I will sell you a ratty, very-not-straight turbo 1.6. You can even drive it home, just need to bring your own: wheels, softtop/hardtop, steering wheel, driver's seat, shift ****, air filter, positive attitude, shocks/springs, fire extinguisher, realistic expectations. And a trailer. So you can drive it home. On a trailer.

no such thing as a straight Miata. they're all gay.

lol I was just about to suggest the post above: I don't see any reason why he can't buy Tim's clapped out dumpster fire dorifto missile that you're harvesting for go-fast parts......for sub 2k

ps: I'm recruiting OP to find me a 2018 Mustang GT premium/performance package a10 3.55 with recaros for sub 30k. sub 35k and I'll settle for a 2016 Shelby gt350 R.

I pay very well, $3.50 per deal

My thoughts exactly. I'll even get it moving for him, assuming nothing critical is broken. He can sit on a plastic crate and I'll ratchet strap him to the car and he can drive it home with the blistering fast revs of a 1.6 and the rain slowly filling the cabin. Plus apparently Lars gave Tim stickers. But not me. Nope.

Please re-read the 2nd post in this thread.

Then consider if you would sell any Miata actually worth purchasing to OP for $1600. This is an enthusiast forum, we price things high, because presumably they're good examples.

I'd sell either of my NB1s for $15k i think. OP are you interested?

Hence the ""

Had I known then, what I do now I'd got a 1.8 (such as the example above). I don't regret it though it's still the most fun per dollar car I've ever had.
