It's been a fun car for a couple years, but I'm just not a convertible guy.  I think I've driven it more with the top up.  Time to clear a spot for the next toy:

1990 Miata with replacement long nose crank 1.6 at some point.  172K on the chassis.

Everything functions except the air conditioning and parking brake, and the outside driver door handle sticks.

Racing Beat CAI
Raceland header
Magnaflow cat
Bosal Spec Miata SS exhaust (Mazdaspeed)
Flying Miata front sway bar
IFRA steering wheel, Momo hub
JDM fender wink indicators
Aftermarket head light covers and LED headlights
Flying Miata lug nuts
Style bar, spoiler courtesy of Amazon
Cupholder replacement in the console
Leaving the RAM cellphone holder attached to the side of the console
Assorted LED bulbs here and there, along with some fun vinyl
Within the last few years:  Timing belt, water pump, heater core, radiator, soft top

Including two sets of wheels, 14" Daisy's with 6-7 year old tires, and 15" ARE wheels with new Vredestein Quadrac 5 tires I bought over the winter

Little to no rust, starts every time, no idea on battery age.  Also replaced the broken oil dipstick with a brand new one, that's gotta be worth something.

$4K on here.  No luck on my personal Facebook post, little action on the local AX group but nothing significant.  SWMBO had a coworker that came to see it today but declined because it was "too souped up".  Or is it "sooped"?

If I don't find someone here it's going on Markeplace for $5k and will likely sell but I'd rather not.  (Typing this on desktop, gimme a minute and I'll add photos from my phone).

If Justjim75 isn't interested in the mounted daisies and those custom 3D printed center caps, put me in line for those. BTW, what size, brand, model are the tires on those daisies?

Doesn't help that I have 7 herniated discs.  My NB with non adjustable VMaxx classics from Ole Keith Tanner (well, originally they came from FM) rode really good and handled 100% better but I lived and worked in the south then, now I'm nationwide

Forgot about those caps.  Printed in PETG for heat resistance, used them for at least a year and never lost any.

The tires are OHTSU FP0612(can't read my writing) A/S M+S rated 195/60-14.  Tread is pretty good, autocrossed on them last year and had some fun sliding a bit.  Talking to Region_Rat right now, he might be interested in letting you have them.  Will let you know.

Hmmm, tempted, but I don't know if I want to own the same car twice.

Jerry, what RAM mount are you using?  That might work with the cup holder I have left over from my scooter days, and I really need a better cupholder for my Miata.

That seems like a crazy good price. 
If I weren't certain my wife would kill me I'd drive up from Cincy
