Renaissance Car: 2004 Mazdaspeed MX-5

The Mazda MX-5 Miata was a perfectly good car before the guys at Mazdaspeed slapped a small turbocharger on the engine, but the Mazdaspeed MX-5 is the
renaissance man’s car, a well balanced combination of usefulness, style,
and fun.  It isn’t a cave man (Mustang) or a Machiavelli (Ferrari), but
it is the Leonardo Da Vinci of cars, a well rounded example of a car
that makes the journey more interesting than the destination.   Find this 2004 Mazdaspeed MX-5 offered for $4,000 via  Tip from Roy.  

Mazdaspeed additions to the basic MX-5 go beyond just power — also include was upgraded suspension, unique
wheels/tires, cool interior trim, and a 6-speed transmission. 
Power comes from an IHI turbocharged and intercooled version of the
BP-4W inline-4, that pumps out 178 horsepower and gets the MX-5 to 60
mph in around 6 seconds (about 1 second faster than the basic MX-5).
