    Liz really wanted a Miata after I sold mine, so we found one that was a pretty good deal.

    I prefer the no frills, pop-up headlights NA body style better. She prefers the NB body style and since this was more of a car for her, that is what we looked for.

    We found this on craigslist. It lived a city life, so it needs a bunch of cosmetic stuff, but mechanically, it is quite stout. It has 58,000 on the clock, and had a a lot of recent repairs. One of the recent repairs the alternator, which went bad 500 miles after it was replaced. After a few phone calls, I found out where it was purchased and discovered it has a 3 year warranty! Enough yammering on. Here are a few pics:
    I call it; Red Barchetta.

    Oh I almost forgot! I found the original window sticker. It has a Torsen limited slip differential! It's a very desireable option in the Miata world!

    Not to familiar with miata's....what year is it? I'm not a fan of miatas but this
    particular one looks damn good besides the rear bumper. Nice pickup.

    It's a 2000.

    I forgot to mention that it has a hardtop and a set of steelies with Hakkas that I still need to pick up. Winter Miata!

    Will she want to turn it into a spec car? Probably not. But that's the direction I'd go if I were modding.

    Nice pickup JJ. My father drive’s his 2000 Miata up from Florida every year to run the Batavia Auto-X with me. It’s a fun car. He added a rolbar, upgraded the sways, Racing Beat Springs, Tokico Adjustable Shocks, custom exhaust and cone filter. One of the few jap cars that has soul, as Jeremy Clarkson would say! Enjoy!

    We are looking forward to it. I am also planning on buy my Dad's 92 when he is sick of it. I'd like to do something like this down the road
    Flyin' Miata : Projects: The green 1999 V8

    But that is a long way off!

    BTW, a special thanks to DH for ripping the aftermarket alarm out of this thing. Stupid thing kept going off, disabled the ignition and we had no remotes to address it.

    I've been working a lot of south. Nowacki's still in training, that's mostly going to be in the pb for a bit. I've looked ahead. We're not crossing paths for a long time. Unless it's in the streets.
