• (Wow…1994 suddenly seems a very long time ago!) I always liked the looks of these (in '94) better than their near twin Probe. I was really surprised to find that the curved roofline of the Mazda totally robs it of headroom. At 6'1" I ended up buying a '93 Probe instead. It always sounded like it was going a gazillion miles an hour with that rev-happy little V6, but wasn't very quick…made an amusing commuter car for a couple of years.

  • Between the fact that the car has been sprayed white without even bothering to do the door jambs, let alone the inside of the trunk or underside of the hood, and the engine compartment looking like it has been through the baja 1000, including that cone air filter, I have to wonder what the seller means by "meticulously maintained." Even at a sub $3000 price point.

  • I had a 96, in the green color that this one was originally painted. The thing about these is they are really light and well balanced…this generation was done by the same people who did the 3rd gen RX-7 and the Miata. It's not a super fast car, but it feels quick and is really snappy in the twisties, and reliable too.

    This particular car though, I'm not sure I'd mess with…the engine bay is a bit of a mess, that doesn't build a lot of confidence. You can find stock ones a lot cheaper, and get an KLZE cheap too, and put it together yourself and know what you have.
