Hello all,

I'm selling my '90 Miata. I picked this up early in the year, my first Miata. While its a fun car, I'm not enjoying as much as I'd thought. So, its looking for a new home.

All stock except the exhaust, everything works, even the AC. Passed state inspection with flying colors. Runs strong, not burning oil. Brakes have been completely gone through, calipers rebuilt or replaced as needed. The air/idle control has been replaced, the idle still won't go below 1300 reliably. Still looking for a vaccum leak.

Glass rear window top is in great shape, no leaks. The interior is servicable, but not in the greatest of shape. Nardi steering wheel goes with the car, stock unit is in the trunk. I'm also including a set of Bilsteins(yellow) that have one season of autox on them.

The body is pretty straight, the one exception being the driver front. It has a couple of odd wrinkles(see photos). The best part, no rust! I've crawled all over that car and can't find any. The paint is faded and what was a clear coat is gone.

Its a great base of a race car/ autox toy, etc. Please ask any questions you have. Asking $1200obo. Car is in a suburb of St. Louis, title in hand. Thanks

Thanks Datsun. I don't have any other project cars at the moment. Please keep this one in mind.

I want an NA in the worst way, and would love to do a fly and drive.
I just need to work on the "having money" part of this equation

I already have 27 cylinders and the6 cyl is a project. I'm staying away from this one out off self defense. My wife will kill me, buuuuut I'll pass word around.

This is very tempting. I'll bet it sells quickly!
