So what's it worth to this enthusiast crowd?
What did I forget to mention?

1991 Classic Red A Package + silver hardtop ('01)

Mileage: 106,000
Motor: 1.6
stock and well cared for, TB, WP, Valve cover seal and belts replaced at 100k

Transmission: 5-spd manual, clutch (OEM) replaced at 78k

Suspension:

  • KYB AGX 8-Way adjustable shocks installed at 85k miles
  • Racing Beat Solid Front Sway Bar
  • H&R Progressive race springs installed at 95k miles
  • All new suspension bushings replaced (OEM) 102k miles
  • New rotors and pads (OEM) around 98k miles
Wheels: 14" Stock Daisy's

Other:
AC - Works blows as cold as 91 miata ac can

OEM Front lip/spoiler

Soft top available - not in car, frame good rain-rail not perfect, plastic window old and yellow.

Paint & Body: A new owner may wish to have car repainted. Body damage to right rear quarter in front of wheel will require dent to be pulled and filled. Previous owner had company logo graphics painted on the doors, who ever did the logos had a heavy hand with the knife, evidence of the stencil cut lines is visible if you look close enough.

Comments:
A good background history including the process of removing the painted logos can and the body damage can be seen here:

GV Tail light kit not included.
If (and I say if) I decide to list this car, it would be hard to see it go. Car is a great DD and/or a great base for an SCCA CSP or a DE car. With the exception of the body damage on the right side, this Florida only car is straight, clean and solid.

What it worth?

In the event I buy this car, I already have the turbo I am going to use and I am looking though a pile of intercoolers for a possible fit...

Yes it would.

Hence why I wrote it "1991 Classic Red A Package + silver hardtop ('01)"
Oh yeah, don't get smart with me.

^take your squabble elsewhere please.

My miata is not even actually up for sale. I am toying with the idea and was hoping for some constructive and objective conversation about the value of my miata.

The dent will scare the casuals away. An enthusiast would be your best bet for 3k I think. Still, 3k is a low figure for the car but thats a realistic number. What are you planning to replace it with?

I posted this topic in the hopes of getting fair and unbiased input on value - because, of course, I have an emotional attachment to this car that is (almost) priceless.
Putting my emotion aside and trying to put myself in the shoes of a potential buyer, the paint and body condition is why figured a fair value would be sub $3k.

If I were to sell it for what I thought I should get for it I would place a value of at least 4k.
