This car is our 7th Miata. We picked it up to be an accompanying project car to our 2008. The 97M has its history in San Diego, CA and had 2 long term owners. The 3rd owner from whom we purchased, was a supposed mechanic. Misrepresented the car and while we usually have a buyers inspection,
I relied on the good previous owner history. So far we have replaced the not great original chrome wheels and tires with Konig Ultralite 15, Nitto 450 195:50:15 tires. Replaced the main seal and added a few missing bolts in the front of engine???. Rebuilt shifter with cobalt short shifter. Refurbished the NArdi Evo shifter with new rubber gaskets. Cleaned the engine, detailed exterior. Replaced broken oil dip stk. installed Raceland windblocker. Purchased Koni yellow adjustable shocks and bumps, (not installed yet). Ordered cover for top down security.
The car seems to have lots of power and now that wheels and tires are new with alignment, drives well. There us body work to do. Clear coat peeling around window and mirror pass side. Windows are slow moving. Pass seat is great, driver's seat is worn and holes in bolster. The original tan top is very good. The plastic window is clear. We paid $3800 for the car.
