If some of the most desirable cars you can buy are race cars with period podium finishes, how much is a Mazda Miata that placed third overall at the 2015 Grassroots Motorsports $2000 Challenge worth?

[$2015 Challenge: Celebrating the Country’s Top Low-Buck Builders]

The “Mumpkin,” as it’s better known, features a number of upgrades that include a turbocharger, five-point harness, “stage 2” clutch and a suspension setup comprising of Koni components up front and an “adjustable sport bike suspension” in the rear.

Currently finished in the 787B-inspired livery it wore at the 2015 event, the Miata is noted to come with a Georgia title but is not currently road legal.

That's kinda disappointing. 
 

I sold it for less than Challenge money with the understanding that the new buyer was gonna try and bring it back to the Challenge. 
 

I don't see any changes whatsoever in those pics from when I sold it. It looks like it is completely unchanged, with a price tag that is 10X what I sold it for. 
 

Uggh.

No way for me to know. He's in the right location.

I've been hoping this car would resurface, but not like this.

He says it has a Georgia title--are you sure you don't still own it? Sort of weird if he never transferred it after all these years.
