Maybe, I’ll contact you tomorrow.

Maybe?  I thought you had learned how to commit now that you're married.

I have a 6.0 LS based truck motor sitting around and $40 in my pocket. 

Sounds like a match made in heaven! I would suggest a rear suspension upgrade, but for the price of the car, you can afford to put in something more suitable. As you can see, it bolts right in with just some simple hand tools that  you probably already own smiley

ideally something manual and decently fun, which will turn into a project car in a few months once I get some money saved for a small suv or truck, or 2 birds with 1 stone would be a mid 90s Toyota 2wd 5 speed pickup or a Miata of course (swmbo would hate it but oh well)

getting rid of an xc70, starting to get suspension clunks, some body damage, cracked windshield, and the I’m scared that the trans may have started early signs of going out. I love this thing but I don’t ever feel like working on it and just plain miss rowing my own gears, it’s been over 2 years since I owned something with a manual trans and that is too long imo

 I have to replace my dd before getting a project or I’d be all over it right now. 

What are you looking for in a DD?   I need to get rid of a '95 miata as well...  It was my DD, but I baby haul now, so I DD a tow pig

Would that happen to be a challenged priced miata?

Let me think a bit on it... it does need some rocker rust repair...

 

It's a sts car short an aftermarket ecu and with slightly less spring rate. It does have a low mileage junkyard motor in it.  I feel like $2k is really low, and would be selling the hardtop separately for sure.
