I’m taking this one from Jalopnik’s book with the “nice ride or crack pipe” book…
After looking around eBay a week or so ago for a nice first generation Mazda Miata, I came across a beautiful white 1990 model. 1.6L engine. Factory hardtop. Beautiful. But why so much? The buyer has a ton of work into the car and the millage is incredibly low. However, even a 40,000 mile version of the world’s most prevalent roadster isn’t going to bring $12,000 any time soon. There are too many in good condition for a car this common to demand that price. Never the less, it is a beautiful Miata, one of the greatest cars ever built.
Instead, check out this wonderful set of Miatas on EasyAutoSales (shameless plug): Super Miata Deals!
