I've been wanting a 2nd gen miata for a while, to have as a DD while I work on my Legacy
Ideally I wanted a 1999 10th anniversary edition (blue/black, 6spd, etc), but the price was right on this thing and its in great shape.
Picked it up yesterday and I'm already loving it.
its mostly fully loaded, 132k, clean title
- hardtop w/defrost
- cruise, ac, bose audio
- nardi wheel
- torsen lsd

Plans right now are to get normal wheels and tires, and upgrade the struts.

I dig it. My dad has a red 2000 like that, just without the hard top.

Also installed an Eibach rear sway bar, and fixed the soft top straps, now its a lot less saggy.
Have a Mazdaspeed front sway bar i'll install soon

did most of the black interior conversion. turns out the dash is all 1 giant piece and doesn't come apart underneath like on subarus.
still need a drivers door card
