Selling my Miata [Orig posted: 27/10/2005]

After spending a week without a car I have finally decided to sell my Miata even before my Elise arrives. I was hoping that I would be able to keep her around as a beater but I just cant justify the cost of insuring and maintaining two cars at the same timeImage. Here is the text of my Craigslist advert (


I have finally decided to part with my much loved 99 Miata. I was hoping to keep her forever and have spared no expense in keeping her top condition. This car has given me great plaseure over the last 2.5 years and I hope that someone who enjoys miatas as much as me. Price $6500
