Nov 28, 2016 update to the Mazda Rotary Miata project car

Rotary Miata: SOLD

The Rotary Miata is officially sold! Thanks to everyone who helped spread the word for the car and the cause. The winning bid was $11,000. But the good news doesn’t stop there. The winning bidder, IMSA driver Jeff Mosing, said that he would like to donate an extra $4000 on top since he was planning to stop his bidding at around $15,000. We’re proud to be surrounded by such a generous community! Remember, all proceeds go directly to Carly’s college fund.

So what will happen to the car now? Mosing says you may see it very soon at a hillclimb on the East Coast. He’s a Mazda and a rotary fan, and plans to use the car the way Mike intended.

Don’t have the scratch to buy a rotary Miata, but want to donate a couple dollars to Carly’s college fund? You can donate right here.

Recently, in another thread, I mentioned there were a lot of good people in this world. I'd say you found another one.

That's just the premix and unburnt hydrocarbons burning.

Wait, I have the same issue and I'm not near a rotary right now...

Thank you to the winning bidder and to also adding the extra! This is a person with good character - a rare find today.

Thank you to the entire GRM/CM team that did all the hard work as you are also a rare find today.

What a blessing you have all been to this young lady and her family.
