From CFlo:

THIS… is a 1993 Mazda MX-5 Miata, finished in Brilliant Black with a black hardtop and a tan interior.

This Miata is equipped with the desirable 5-speed manual transmission.
The attached Carfax history report lists no accidents in this Miata’s past. It also shows that this roadster has been registered in California since it was new.
Modified for track use, this Miata is equipped with 15-inch Ultralight wheels, a Blackbird Fabworx GT3 roll bar, an aluminum Mishimoto radiator, Sparco Sprint V seats, and more listed below. Some of the removed factory parts are pictured in the gallery and included in the sale.
Factory equipment includes the C Package, a viscous limited-slip differential, and a hardtop.
Mazda launched the original MX-5 Miata (called NA internally) for the 1990 model year. Years in the making, it picked up where British and Italian roadsters left off by offering enthusiasts nimble handling and an open-air driving experience at a relatively affordable price. The first Miata quickly attracted a cult following, and demand far exceeded Mazda’s initial expectations. Production ended in 1997, and the NA passed the torch to the NB.
Power for this Miata comes from a 1.6-liter 4-cylinder engine, rated at 116 horsepower and 100 lb-ft of torque. Output is sent to the rear wheels via a 5-speed manual transmission

Known Flaws
The attached Carfax history report notes a potential odometer rollback in February of 2012. The odometer currently displays about 137,500 miles, but this car’s true mileage is unknown.
The seller notes there is evidence that this car was in a light rear-end accident, and he points out that the trunk lid has been replaced because the VIN tag doesn’t match the one on the other panels.
The seller reports that hesitation can sometimes be felt in the second-gear synchro when shifting at lower engine revolutions, that the starter does not always immediately engage when turning the key in the ignition switch, and that the air conditioning system does not blow cold.
