askin 3500 to break even with the money i put in it
open to all trades
I will likely not offer any money on top of trade, $500 at most. I'm well aware that it'll be WAY slower, but the car seems solid, and has way more recent work put into it than i've put into mine. But... it's right wheel drive, it's small, it's a Miata.

Thoughts?

Sounds like a deal. It only has 80k on the motor and the '01 rear end can't have too many miles. BPT swap!
Meh... if it gets swapped it'll be for something quite a bit more extreme, and quite a ways down the road.

My only reservations about doing this trade is that the MX6 is uhmmm... Fast. Like.... Hold-onto-your-balls-we're-going-to-torque-steer-into-that-wall fast.

Which, of course, is stupid for a DD. But it's nice to have that power on tap when you want it. And there's no indications that the MX6 is a bad DD, either. They're built like brick S***houses.

The Miata is just one of those cars, though.... everyone needs one at one point.

I've always thought of the miata as a chick car, but I'd love to track one!
