Well, I was sick of driving around a 79' Datsun pickup, so I set out on a one day, and only day search for the perfect daily driver.

I began at Mazda, looking at a new 06' Miata, however my budget did not fit the $375 monthly payment. I even looked at used Civics, Integras, Explorers, etc... but was not happy with how they drove or looked.

As I began getting fed up with the search I started heading home when I noticed out of the corner of my eye what looked like a silver miata at a local Nissan dealership...I decided to stop by and check it out. Sure enough... low and behold was a beautiful 2003 Silver Yata with a blue softtop.

With a $15,888 price tag, I was pretty convinced I'd be driving my beat to hell pickup home. I decided I would atleast take this gorgeous machine out for a test drive. Boy did I scare the hell out of the salesman. It was his fault for taking me down a windy road! :twisted:

After returning to the dealership, the saleman asked me what I was looking to pay and I told him no more than $200/month. He didnt think he could get it done, but after 4 hours of negotiation and several free pepsis, I was finally sitting in the finance office signing papers, and driving away with a payment at a little over $200/month, and a WAY lower price tag, not 30 minutes later.

It's no Mazdaspeed, but man do I love driving it! It's so responsive and and handles like a dream. Thanks to Nissan I've got a new Mazda! :D

sorry for the long story, but it truly was the most fustrating thing I've ever had to do without my parents getting involved.

Nice purchase, heard the news from Ben. Never thought you were going to pick up another miata. I thought you were going to pick up the 240sx from Matt?

They went close to $3K below asking price plus the $1500 for my beat up truck. I also gave up a $1K down payment.
