Benjamin had found a great deal in his new (to him) Miata. I visited with him, asking about his 1993 Mazda Miata, at the 2009 SPOKES AutoX #2. I was strangely drawn to the variation of red on his car.
Apparently, the previous owner, a female, had driven it off the road into a ditch, through a barbed wire privacy fence. She decided to get it repainted a sort of lipstick rose metallic color. It’s different, but not bad…it has a strange shimmer in the sunlight.
This car has only 102K miles on it & it only cost Benjamin about $1200. Not bad, at all. It makes the different color that much less of an issue.
As you can see the interior is clean & well-maintained. A very good buy & value for an “as is” purchase. Benjamin said that he really hasn’t done very much in the way of maintenance. But he has already been out to autocross – I recall seeing this Miata at a previous SASCA autocross this year, as well.
