is the "dark side"
06 Evo #7 STU, 03 IS300

Default FS: 1993 Miata - "C" package, VLSD, hardtop, rollbar - perfect track car EDIT: SOLD!

For sale: My 1993 Mazda Miata.

Wednesday update: Lots of new pics in post #3.

I bought the car in November 2004. I did one track event in my WRX and I wanted to do more, but without the risk of wrecking the WRX. I had narrowed it down to the MK2 MR2 (NA) and the Miata. After a lot of research I decided the Miata was the best way to go. (http://corner-carvers.com/forums/showthread.php?t=16529)

I bought the car from Jim Thill, a local Spec Miata racer. He only bought it to flip it. The original owner put 60K miles on the car. Jim said it was too nice to turn into a racecar. But he didn't say anything about it being too nice to be a track car The car had a rollbar, seats and harnesses 3 weeks later.

Today it has 95K. It's been a blast to own, but I don't need a track car anymore (priorities). Someone I know who's semi local was selling his MR2 and I thought this would be a great time to try something else.

Full disclosure: The car was autox'ed once and did six track events. I never hit anything, though

So, here's the rundown.

1993 Miata
"C" package: leather, headrest speakers, power steering, ABS (see: bad)
-Hardtop with working defroster. The hardtop was $1300, painting it was $100 and there was another $60 or so worth of little electronic bits to make the defroster work.
-According to Jim, the car has the viscous LSD. This would make the car a great starting point for an STS2 build.

Mods:
-Stock wheels were powdercoated black
-Piper Motorsport rollbar
-Samco radiator hoses
-Axxis Ultimate pads
-Tokico Blue shocks/springs
-Voodoo shift knob
-Voodoo ebrake handle (it was on sale)
-R-package front lip
-T-sport Rev Lite shift light (great for track/autox)
-Cupholder

Comes with the car:
-2x 6-point 3" Sparco harnesses with harness pads
-2x Piper Motorsport seat brackets (just add seats!)
-Mazdaspeed Engine mounts (never got around to installing these)
-Greddy shock tower brace
-OEM spoiler if you want it
-Full size spare
-A bunch of the 90-93 14x5.5 daisy wheels - at least 4, as many as 6 (can't remember)

First, the bad.
-Well, it's a 15 year old car.
-ABS doesn't work. It might be as simple as a fuse. I never checked - I like it better without it.
-Lots of scratches/scuffs on the paint (most notably front bumper)
--Pics:

--http://www.buttdynoracing.com/wp/wp-gallery2.php?g2_itemId=11608
-Dent on the hood where my extension cord fell on it (see above)
-Hood is steel, not aluminum. Previous owner was in some sort of minor accident (which is why the bumper is messed up) and I guess he is cheap.
-Headrest speakers don't work
-Hood release doesn't pop the hood quite all the way - have to fight with it a little
-AC does not blow cold
-Stereo LCD does not light up at night (this apparently happens a lot)
-Car came with a spoiler that I removed... I put bolts through the holes (vortex generators!)
-Soft top is cracked
--Pic of soft top here: http://www.buttdynoracing.com/wp/wp-...2_itemId=11595
-Car usually starts the first time, but always starts the second time. Fuel filter maybe?

Good:
-Hardtop!
-Recent oil analysis says engine is in good shape
-Pretty up to date on maintainence.
--New rear wheel bearings (Feb 06)
--New radiator hoses
--Fresh alignment
--Front balljoints installed (December 06)
--Recent brake fluid flush (Super Blue.. this year)
--Power steering fluid flush
--3 new shift boots
--Fresh turret fluid
--New spark plugs
--Timing belt / water pump done at ~75K
--New plug wires (Magnecor (sp))
-Pretty much a set of tires away from being autoxed or tracked tomorrow
-Gets you one step closer to being a moderator

I am going to get all the records together at some point this week so I can fill in the details. I did all the easy stuff - oil changes, brake fluid, rotors/pads, suspension stuff. Rosenthal Mazda in Arlington did all the harder stuff, like the timing belt. PBC did the wheel bearings.

I'm asking $2800 for the car + hardtop. If I can find separate buyers for the car and the hardtop I would split them - $900 for the hardtop and $2000 for the car.

I have been DD'ing it since I bought it. The car has never let me down. It's been a great car to own and were I not switching to a *different* lightweight RWD car I would be very sad right now.

Pics coming...

PM is fine, but email is better: jjw-miata@johntology.org

I am in Alexandria, VA

John, I freaking hate you. You waited until I moved to do this in spite, didn't you?

Sooo, what's this "*different* lightweight RWD car" that you're switching to?

If it is the helmet/roll bar clearance you are worried about, from what I have seen if there is a bar and a HT on they barely check that. And with a race seat or a isht load of foam out of the seat bottom and you'd be fine with that too.

This is the exact type of car I've been looking for and even in white, unfortunately I just don't have the money at the moment.

Bump for you and good luck to you on the sale, I'm sure it will go in a hurry.
