We were on our way to get a $1000 miata we found on CL. (figured we could part it down to $500 since we weren't keeping the motor or interior) and got a call that it just sold.
Anyhoo, the same $1000 miata showed up the next day on CL as a $1500 miata. Bummer.
Then, we found another miata for $1000 on CL with a perfect top and interior. Called for it and someone was already on the way to get that one. It showed up on CL the next day minus the top and interior bits for $1500.
I'm not all butt-hurted about missing out. I personally like Miatas and wouldn't mind one to drive around on the street. But- after careful consideration, the Miata is just a terrible platform for what our team does in Lemons. Probably a good thing we didn't get a Miata.
