Illustration for article titled Its official. Miata for sale

Seeing as you’ve all been here with the Miata since day one, I figured I should let you know I’m selling it off. Bittersweet, but it’s time for a change. I think I mentioned earlier that I posted a super quick ad a month ago asking $7k, and got overloaded with interested parties. I promptly deleted the ad, then flew off to Asia, determined to relist the car at a more market-appropriate price later on.

Later on is apparently today, as I find myself sitting in front of a laptop writing up a real ad. I’m hoping to sell ASAP (before I change my mind), and as such have priced it a fair deal lower than similar builds tend to sell for on the forums. Oh, speaking of which... while I will be posting to Craigslist, I expect this to sell to a Miata initiate through Miataturbo.net, Miata.net, Clubroadster, etc. That said if you know anyone who wants a Miata that has proven it’s unkillabaility (that’s a word), a Miata that has been lovingly upgraded with some of the absolute highest quality parts that are available, A Miata that will bring fear into the hearts of sports cars retailing for 10x as much (at least in the corners) well... A friends of Oppo discount will apply.


Question. For the craigslist listing, should I include pricing for the individual parts? I’m definitely not doing that on the forums as the prospective buyers will be familiar with everything I’ve installed, but I’m going back and forth over whether to include that for Craigslist.

anyways.... here’s the rough draft. I’ll finish it up after detailing the car. I’m guessing that will take most of the day, as I haven’t clay-barred in a while...


It’s time to say goodbye to my Miata. It is a 1995 NA with power locks, power windows and power antenna. I’ve been the owner for five years, and in that time it has never let me down, or left me stranded. I’ve maintained the car religiously, and spared no expense in upgrading parts as needed. This was not a track car, although it would certainly be a good one. Well over $20,000 spent in parts alone, so if you’re looking to build a high-performance Miata why not save some serious money and start with this one?


Asking $8500

I have receipts for 99% of the parts bought, and for the work that was done. I’ve also made wiring diagrams for the electrical work I’ve personally done to make it easier for any future owners or shops. This car has passed emissions every time without missing a beat. Engine was fully rebuilt 40k miles ago, and runs strong. I have a massive bin of both OEM and new aftermarket parts that can potentially be included with the sale as well.


Feel free to contact me with absolutely any questions.

One headlight motor has recently started to act a bit finicky. I haven’t had a chance to look at it yet, and have kept the headlights in the up position.


Driver’s side front fender has some chipped paint. I set rebound and compression too low initially after swapping on bigger winter tires, and the tire made contact with the lip of the fender when going over a large bump.

Paint looks great at 10ft, but this is a 25 year old and certainly isn’t showroom fresh, cosmetically.


Odometer stopped working at 190k miles. I swapped in a new cluster with 230k miles, and… that one stopped working after a few thousand miles. Unsure of actual mileage, but likely around 255k based on some napkin math.
