View Full Version : 1996 Miata - Testing waters

06-10-2012, 09:52 PM

I bought this car before my first child and planned to autocross and use this at an occasional track day once I got it ready but children change your priorities. I now have a 2nd on the way and the car is just not getting the use it should. I am in no hurry to sell but figured I would throw it out there to see if there was any interest. I currently drive this car once week or so about 80 miles round trip to work just to make sure it gets driven. Otherwise car sits in the garage.

That's a good looking Miata. At that price, you shouldn't have a hard time selling it. :goodjob:
