6k Mile Creampuff: 1990 Mazda MX-5 Miata

If you’ve been paying attention you might have noticed that DT’s own CFlo picked up a 1990 Mazda MX-5 for $600, aka El Cheapacabra.  The thing is pretty rough, but for the price it seems like a real winner to me — however, somewhere half way across the country a guy picked up a much nicer ’90 Miata.  Our buddy Jesse over at Barnfinds.com found a 6000 mile Miata and picked it up for an undisclosed amount of cash, but he feels bad about putting miles and city parking abuse on such a creampuff, so he is passing it on to the next guy.  Find this 1990 Mazda MX-5 Miata bidding for $7,625 here on eBay located in Boise, ID with 2 days to go.

You know I’m not one to make off-the-cuff definitive statements, but lemme tell ya folks…this is the nicest NA MX-5 you can find for sale right now.  No ifs, ands, or buts about it…this is the bee’s knees’, the cat’s pajamas’, the snake’s hips’, the monkey’s eyebrows’, ‘the kipper’s knickers’, and the gorilla’s glue of all MX-5dom. 

Jesse includes a nice write-up of when he found the car here, and another post detailing the sale here.  Whoever buys this car will have a very nice example of one of the best selling roadsters of all time…but he will be faced with the same conundrum as the current seller — how do you enjoy a car without racking up the miles?  Likely, this story will be continued.
