deevergote : 1990 Mazda Miata

Purchased on 6/9/2016. It is now registered, insured, and being picked up tonight! These are the seller's photos, as I don't actually have it in my possession to take my own just yet.



The car has just over 65,000 miles on it. It's an absolute baby, and it's been very well cared for. I'm the third owner.
The guy I bought it from used it for autocross, and has it set up pretty nicely for that purpose. It's a perfectly docile daily driver, though. Not harsh, noisy, or requiring any compromise to drive. It even has functional AC and PS!

It was hit on the front left corner, damaging the fender and bumper. The fender has been replaced. The seller spraypainted it with matching paint, though it came out with a bit of a satin finish. Not bad for what it is, but a repaint will be in order eventually. The bumper shows some damage at the corner where it meets the fender, but it's minimal. Again, perfectly tolerable until I decide to replace it! There's also some damage to the paint around the gas door, thanks to careless NJ gas attendants (we can't pump our own gas in NJ). I plan on touching that up to avoid rust. Other than those things, the car is in obscenely good condition. Very well maintained, tastefully modified, and clearly cared for.

Come to Pull a Part when you're down south and get a torsen so you can burn both wheels, Deev. Gotta love that filter placement...

Also congrats on getting it! And getting married!

Thank you, sir!
It's strange... NO Miatas in any of the yards up here. Cars that belong there are being sold for $3500+ It has a viscous LSD, so it's better than nothing... but yeah, I wouldn't mind a nice torsen. The seller did pretty well in autocross (coming in third to an Elise and an S2000 at one event, he said) so it wasn't totally useless!

The filter sitting over the exhaust manifold MIGHT not be the best idea... There's a heat shield, but I'm sure it's still sucking nice warm air. I'm not sure what other options there are, though!

Congrats Mike, looks to be an awesome base to sit on or modify eventually. The Japanese cluster is also nice (reminds me of the honda). When are you getting a hardtop for it? :P have fun & stay safe

Looks like you found a rare gem. 1990 with only 65k...

Everything done to it is very tasteful.

On the topic of gas pumps, I don't know which states are like that but Oregon is another state that doesn't allow you to put fuel in your vehicle yourself. I recently traveled to Vancouver WA and was fueling up at night not aware of the law and had a gas station attendant get pretty "concerned" we shall say.

Again, looks great Mike. You got lucky. Big score on this one.

A proper roll bar might be in its future. It has the usual convertible highway wobble, so I'm not opposed to anything that will add rigidity... and a good roll bar will do that, as well as protect me somewhat in a rollover!

I do really want a hard top. They're $800-$1000 for half-decent ones, so it'll be a while before I bother with that expense! The soft top is thankfully in great shape.

The no self-serve in NJ is strange. I didn't realize how strange until I began venturing out of state. AccordWarrior had to teach me how to pump gas the first time I drove up to visit him in MA!

The previous owner had it set up for autocross, so it already has a decent suspension, chassis braces, sway bars, and some very nice Kumho tires (I'm not a fan of Kumho in general, but I never got their higher end summer tires!) As is, this thing is already set up to be pretty competitive on the autocross course, without sacrificing a bit of daily drivability. It's exactly how I wanted it!

Thank you, sir! I think NJ and OR are the only two that don't allow self-serve. It's really weird, and annoying once you get used to doing it yourself. I prefer pumping my own now!

I definitely got a good car. The previous owner took great care of it, and aside from the coilovers, he did pretty much all the mods I'd have wanted to do myself (and I don't hate the coilovers... I'm just not a big coilover guy, and I don't know where Flyin Miata sources their stuff!)

It's actually running NB springs in back, because the springs for the NA dropped it too low for the previous owner's liking.
