Thanks for that.  That Miata up here would be $3500 easy, and I need a cheap one just to knock around in.   How is it so cheap???

Oh, an I just bought a Fiero last weekend.  A car a week would be a bad precedent to start.

I was looking at it from that point of view as well.  It'd be worth getting just to flip it.  Guy must be moving immediately.

What if you took that Grand Marquis and that Jag on the XJR wheels and basically swapped the drivetrain over from the Merc to the Jag and used the Merc as a donor for all kinds of things like the entire electrical system.  In theory that should be really easy, right?  RIGHT?

I have a perfect front bumper somewhere in my barn

Ok, berk. I might be in touch with you about that bumper. I messaged the seller.

I'm weak, square Dodges are my crack and I haven't had a good fix since I sold my D350.

There's a good windshield and a set of inner fenders out there as well. Let me know!

I can't believe that Miata is still for sale - sounds like a steal. Surely Stampie, pimpM3 or Tom are already on the phone. Easy flip.

During the week, I walked down the line of cars in the driveway and decided that the '89 VW Cabriolet was going to have to go. Too many projects and not enough time to move them along. Then reading through here, I'm already thinking... what could one or two more hurt at this point.

...E36 M3. The driveway is still full.

The Miata is really undervalued. A lot.

ES is the most popular class in autocross around here, too. I've got an emerald green 99 already.

I'm pretty sure this is a co-worker of mine's car.  I recognize the broken window and driver fender.  I replaced the driver headlamp bulb for him a few weeks ago.  Sucks that happened to him he's a nice guy.

Duh... buy my 96 Impala SS.

Mechanically great, cosmetically iffy.

*warranty covers gas cap only for the first 3 miles or 3 minutes.

Or something more 'racey'?   1970 Open GT  $1200  was really tempted on this one, but I already have a MG Midget, need another car I can't fit in?  NO

That truck doesn't need a straight bumper, it would be perfect with about six and a half feet of 4x6 oak bolted up though.  Keep the look consistent.
